"The geopolitical tensions could be the catalyst for the market's direction in the next coming weeks depending on how it all shakes out," said Robert Pavlik, chief investment strategist at Boston Private. "If those talks keep escalating, the market will get nervous."
"I think the muted reaction in the market has to do with Trump not necessarily following up on his tough talk," Pavlik said.

Overall, stocks have been on a tear this year, with the Dow, S&P and the Nasdaq composite all hitting record highs and surging more than 10 percent. But some market experts are worried that a pullback may be close.
"There's sort of a vacuum" in the market right now, said Marc Chaikin, CEO of Chaikin Analytics. "We're banging up against resistance and there's a lot of people on vacation. In this type of environment, bad news tends to send the market lower."
Roberto Friedlander, head of energy trading at Seaport Global Securities, said in a note Tuesday that Monday's trading volume was the lowest since 2007, excluding holidays.
