Yesterday, our KOSPI fell 2.6% on the news of the war and pushed back to the 2,600 level.



What is characteristic is that individuals continue to buy at a low price while betting about 1 trillion won, and it is an analysis that they are investing in fear to aim for a rebound after the war is over.
