  • China is devaluing its currency.

Market implications:

With respect to Iran, this is the latest in a series of potentially fatal blows between the US, its allies and Iran.  Iran continues to antagonise global leaders and has said that it would  keep reducing its compliance with the deal every 60 days unless world powers shield it from the sanctions which were reimposed when Trump quit the nuclear agreement. The safe havens, such as the Yen, CHF and USD and indeed the price of oil will continue to atrract positive  flow.
