TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

CMC Markets analyst David Madden said: “The long-awaited trade talks between President Trump and Xi Jinping in Japan over the weekend appear to have gone well. The two leaders met to discuss the trade standoff at the G20 meeting, and a small bit of progress seems to have been made.

“Both sides agreed not to impose new tariffs on each other, but at the same time, President Trump is in no hurry remove the existing levies on Chinese imports. The US administration will take a softer stance in relation to blocking US firms from selling goods to the Chinese company Huawei. Mr Trump said the decision was taken at the request of US tech firms and Xi Jinping. US economic advisor, Larry Kudlow, said there wouldn’t be a complete reversal of the ban, but some US companies would be permitted to do business with Huawei if it doesn’t threaten national security.”
