The recent trend for the stock market has been slightly changed due to a dip -- which has been affected by recent, non-financial factors.   

John Navin, the dean for the college of business administration at Ohio Northern University says that uncertainty in future events is what causes the stock market to go down. The possible conflict with North Korea is what Navin attributes to the recent dip in the stock market - although he doesn't see this change having long-lasting effects.

"There's no reason to expect that this is going to be any different from anything else," Navin said.  "While this uncertainty is going on, you're probably going to see a little deviation from the trend the way the market has been going, but it shouldn't affect it long-term."
