Stocks opened lower on Thursday after President Trump issued an open letter to Kim Jung Un, explaining that the North Korean leader’s “tremendous anger and open hostility” in recent statements has forced him to cancel a scheduled meeting between the two political figures.
In other major U.S. news, Initial Jobless Claims returned to levels seen consistently over the past few years, and the Fed announced that it would temporarily allow inflation to run above the target 2% rate in order to maintain the economy’s strong growth cycle. Ryan explains all of this, and more, in the first half of today’s show.
Later, Ryan is joined by Dave Bartosiak, editor of the Zacks Momentum Trader portfolio service. Some of the latest additions to the portfolio include Callaway Golf (
