US Futures are Lower this Morning as Geopolitical Risks with North Korea Continue to Rise

US futures are lower this morning as geopolitical risks with North Korea continue to rise.  In response to President Trump’s comments of “fire and fury,” North Korea laid out plans to fire missiles towards Guam as a warning as tensions rose between the US and North Korea.  In economic data, weekly jobless claims came in 244,000 compared to estimates of 240,000 and the producer price index came in below expectations.  Markets in Asia closed lower led by the Hang Seng and European markets are trading lower led by the FTSE.
