Money and Politics
Stock markets are reacting nervously about the political situation in Ukraine. When too super powers butt heads nervousness is perhaps natural.
I picked this out of the broker report this morning
“The Russian ruble and stock market fell sharply. The Russian central bank boosted its key interest rate to 7% from 5.5% in an attempt to stem the capital flow. ”
I think threats from the US might be met by chest thumping but I hope the Russians find foreign investment running away a much bigger reason to show restraint!
