Terror Alerts and the Markets


The recent threat of global terrorist activity has resulted in U.S. Embassy closures. High levels of concern could impact capital markets as well.

During the extreme situation, 9/11, the S&P 500 fell over 11% within ten days of the attacks. You recall the markets were closed for a few days as well.

The markets, however, were resilient. By 10/11 there was a full recovery in the S&P 500. We certainly do not minimize the terror threats, nor have we forgotten 9/11. As you know, however, many dynamic global issues impact the global markets.
