Pimco's Clarida on Three Things Impacting Investors

North Korea say they've detonated a hydrogen bomb, the yuan falls to a five-year low and brent oil drops below $35 a barrel for the first time since 2004. Here are some of the things people in markets are talking about today.

North Korea said it successfully tested its first hydrogen bomb at 10 a.m. local time, with the blast triggering a magnitude 5.1 earthquake. Experts are already disputing the country's claims, which they say are not backed up by initial data reviews.
