While investors across the world maintain an eye on central banks' monetary policy and economic data, among other factors, they are also on the lookout for the upcoming "leap second," Dow Jones reported Monday.
The leap second is an event that occurs every few years in which the world's standard time is adjusted by one second in order to compensate for a mismatch between the Earth's rotation and clocks.
