BlackRock profit up as investor exit active funds


Financial markets traded vibrantly last quarter as a new US president and congress took office, and investors tried to size up whether they would pass tax and other reforms that could give new life to an aging bull market in USA stocks.

U.S. to conduct missile tests as North Korea tensions remain high

Defence Secretary James Mattis has briefed the Congress on the option, but the military has not yet chose to intercept a test missile.
