Dear readers, as you may have probably know the global stocks markets are currently under pressure and trending lower on the back of the heightened tensions between America and North Korea with both sides exchanging languages at one another. North Korea has even detailed a possible strike plan towards Guam and US President Donald Trump has also responded in a language which some said may be understood by North Korea but also one which others say may aggravate the current situation.

This geo-political tension is not good for equities and hence currently it may not be the ideal time to think of buying stocks. And for those investors holding their investment portfolio which may be now under waters because of the decline in global equities, there is just two course of action: hold or sell off. For investors who could hold their investments, this is probably the time to wait for global equities to drop further, wait till the tensions have calmed down if possible and buy stocks on the bargain. For investors who could be tempted to sell off their positions now, it may be better to think of these ups and downs in stocks markets as a natural part of being part of investing and stay away from looking at stock prices these few days.
