Trump promised further bombing raids, should Assad conduct another chemical gas attack.
There is no doubt in my mind that we will hear of further chemical attacks very soon.
The rebels are losing, thanks to Russian involvement in Syria. They are confined to a small area. They have seen how easy it is to get Assad bombed..... all they have to do is stage a faked chemical attack, or conduct a real chemical attack on civilians, with real fatalities, and the West will respond.
I suspect the images we see from the next attack will be more gruesome.Tthe more gruesome the images are, the more strongly the West will respond. The rebels have no other way to defeat Assad.
And next time, Russia wont sit by idly.
As traders we need to be prepared for such events. They will effect our markets, such as gold and stocks.
And these events will not always come on a weekend, as it did this time.
