Oil prices tumbled and equity markets soared on Wednesday after U.S. President Donald Trump said an Iranian missile strike on bases in Iraq had not harmed American troops and damage was minimal, showing Tehran wanted to de-escalate the Middle East standoff.

Iran fired missiles at military bases housing U.S. troops in Iraq in retaliation for last week’s slaying by American drones of Iranian Major General Qassem Soleimani, a strike that raised fears of an escalating regional conflict.

“Iran appears to be standing down, which is a good thing for all parties concerned and a very good thing for the world,” Trump said in an address to the nation.

The S&P 500 and Nasdaq stock indexes hit record highs after Trump’s remarks and crude prices slumped, with U.S. benchmark West Texas Intermediate posting a 10% slide from a peak following the Iranian attack to after Trump spoke.
