Oil price rises after US attack who killed Iranian general | Economy

NY – Crude oil prices rose significantly and stock exchanges fell on Friday after US military forces launched an attack that killed an Iranian general.

The price of crude oil increased 3.5% and the main stock market indices of Wall Street fell at the beginning of the day.

The falls came after a bullish start for the New Year and a good profit throughout 2019.

News of the death of General Qassem Soleimani generated expectations of possible reprisals by Iran.

At 10:39 in the morning, the S&P 500 index dropped 21 points, or 0.64%, to 3,237 units. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 222 units, or 0.77%, to 28,646. The Nasdaq compound yielded 63 integers, or 0.7%, to 9,029.
