Mounting Risks Starting to Stick to South Korea's Teflon Markets

The domestic and global risks that have been looming over South Korea may finally be catching up with its previously bulletproof markets.

After capping a record eight straight months of gains through July, the country’s benchmark Kospi Index is down in August amid a wave of fresh bad news that’s triggered a surge in volatility: 

  • North Korea condemned the latest round of United Nations sanctions Monday and vowed it will make the U.S. “pay dearly”, according to the Korean Central News Agency.
  • South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s administration unveiled proposed tax hikes Aug. 2 on large corporations and high earners as his reform push gets into gear. The Kospi tumbled as much as 2.2 percent, the most since November 2016.
  • South Korean prosecutor Park Young-soo has demanded a 12-year prison sentence for Samsung Group’s Jay Y. Lee for his alleged role in a bribery scandal that also toppled former president Park Geun-hye.
  • South Korea’s manufacturing purchasing managers’ index returned to contraction in July, according to an Aug. 1 reading, after expanding for the first time this year in June.
