World War III may be coming to a world near you soon.
On Monday, China moved nearly 150,000 troops to their border with North Korea, potentially signaling that an upcoming conflict is imminent.
Stocks were cautiously higher before Monday’s open amid geopolitical pressures and jitters ahead of Q1 earnings from the country’s largest banks.

It appears as if they have abandoned this policy by placing 150,000 troops on the border. Additionally, President Donald Trump sent the U.S. Navy to the Korean Peninsula and South Korea revealed a new missile system on Monday.
China may be preparing for a physical conflict or they might be trying to prevent millions of North Korean refugees from trying to flee into their country when they inevitably decide that it isn’t worth dying for their crazy leader Kim Jong-Un. Regardless, a conflict is brewing in North Korea and it appears as if China and the United States are on the same side.
