Concerns around the severity of Hurricane Irma’s financial impact receded as it weakened to a tropical depression, while investors shrugged off fresh developments related to North Korea.

“There’s a relief factor, at least for the moment, that the North Korea situation has gone a little bit quiet, and the fact that the hurricane over the weekend was not as bad as expected,” said Dave Donabedian, chief investment officer of CIBC Atlantic Trust Private Wealth Management.
