Stocks in Asia dropped with U.S. equity-index futures after a report that North Korea could respond to fresh sanctions with a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific. The yen and gold advanced.

After a flat start to Friday’s Asian session, benchmarks dropped in Tokyo and Seoul, and S&P 500 Index futures declined. Hong Kong shares fell as S&P Global Ratings cut the city’s sovereign rating a day after it downgraded China. Bond yields retreated and the yen and gold climbed after Yonhap News cited a North Korean official saying the “highest level of hard-line” countermeasures against the U.S. could refer to a hydrogen-bomb in the Pacific Ocean. North Korea’s nuclear tests up to now have taken place on its own soil.

The fresh threats diverted attention from the monetary-policy decisions that have dominated markets’ focus this week. Investors are keeping an eye on speeches by Federal Reserve officials that may offer further clues to the central bank’s thinking after bets for higher rates by year-end were raised following this week’s policy meeting.

The Australian dollar added to losses triggered by a tumble in iron ore prices and dovish language from the nation’s central bank governor.

What to watch out as the week comes to an end:

Bank Indonesia will probably keep its benchmark rate at 4.5 percent. U.S. September preliminary Markit PMI data, which are predicted to show an acceleration in manufacturing and a slight cooling in services growth. Euro-area PMIs on Friday will probably provide additional evidence that growth moderated in the third quarter, Bloomberg Intelligence said. Theresa May delivers a keynote speech on Brexit in Florence. Campaigning continues in Germany before the Sept. 24 election. New Zealand heads to the polls on Saturday.

Here are the main moves in markets: Stocks
