It’s another volatile day on Wall Street as tensions continue to rise between Russia and Ukraine — and more in Friday’s stock market recap.
Not only have more Russian troops been seen gathering at the border, but Moscow has also announced that its nuclear forces will start holding drills.
Further conflict would drastically affect energy prices, as Russia is Europe’s largest supplier of natural gas.
However, energy prices actually peaked five days ago and have started to come down.
If Energy Select Sector SPDR Fund (NYSEArca: XLE), an ETF that tracks the Energy sector, breaks below the $66 level, it’ll be a bullish sign for the markets, indicating that fears of further conflict are declining.
