TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

Stocks are being called to start the session slightly higher despite reports that the first round of face-to-face trade talks between US and Chinese negotiators since the 28 June G20 leaders’ summit in Japan.

According to Bloomberg News, the talks appeared to have ended almost as quickly as they had begun.

In parallel, US futures were still pointing to a higher start to trading at the opening bell in New York, with sentiment boosted by better than expected quarterly numbers out of tech giant Apple.

Nonetheless, the market spotlight on Wednesday will be firmly on the US Federal Reserve, whose policymakers are widely expected to deliver a 25 basis point cut in the target range for official short-term interest rates as ‘insurance’ against the risk of a protracted downturn given the multiple headwinds from overseas.
