How Would Markets React to a Syria Attack?

Email

There's a great deal of uncertainty about whether there will be a Syria attack from the United States – but investors want to know how markets would react to such a strike.

Secretary of State John Kerry has said a Syria attack – when and if it comes – would be "extremely limited and targeted," and support for an attack is far from ironclad.

Despite all this uncertainty, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up about 150 points so far today.

Would the markets "like" an attack on Syria, or would they pull back? And could an attack mean even more stimulus and bond buying for Bernanke?

Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald speaks with FOX Business' Stuart Varney of "Varney & Co."and gives the surprising answers to these questions.
