    South Korea ETF rallies after reports of North Korean missile launch

    The largest exchange-traded fund to track the South Korea equity market rose on Tuesday, despite media reports that North Korea had fired a ballistic missile. The iShares MSCI South Korea Capped ETF rose 1.4% in afternoon trading. While the fund fell from its highs of the session after the reports, it remained in solidly positive territory. The missile was reported by South Korean media outlets, which said the missile flew eastward. It was unclear how far it flew. Earlier this year, North Korea fired a missile that flew over Japan. Thus far this year, the South Korea ETF has shrugged off all manner of tensions with North Korea, and is up more than 40% on the year. The S&P 500 is up 16.7% while the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up nearly 20%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
