  • The Aussie dollar dropped to a near 10 year low on the news and is now trading at  US68.69c.
  • There is no clear view of US/ China trade negotiations nor any certainty about the UK leadership and its handling of Brexit.
  • Geopolitical tensions are rising with Iran’s latest actions in the Gulf.
