    Aussie Dollar Trades Higher Following Release of Tame RBA Minutes, Muted Response to Fresh U.S Tariffs on China

    The mild response by investors to the new tariffs suggests investors may be waiting to see which industries China decides to target in its retaliation. Again, the thought is, why sell the whole market when only a few sectors, industries or stocks may be negatively affected by China’s retaliatory efforts. The Australian Dollar is trading higher early Tuesday, bucking the negative tone set earlier in the session by new tariffs on China by the U.S. and relatively tame Reserve Bank of Australia monetary policy meeting minutes.

    The Philippine Peso Needs a Break. It May Be About to Get One

    The embattled Philippine peso needs a break and it may soon get one.

Since 2009, the highest monthly remittances value was in every December and last year’s $2.7 billion inflow in the month was the largest ever, according to central bank data.

    Hunters of Japan Stock Bargains May Want to Wait for U.S. Vote

    Some Japan equity strategists are recommending investors hold off any hunt for bargains until trade tensions cool after U.S. midterms. A possible decline in protectionist rhetoric once congressional elections end in November may allow investors to focus on Japan’s strong earnings that have been overlooked because of fears of a trade war with the U.S., according to analysts. Japanese stocks have borne the brunt of Asia’s slump because many market participants consider the shares to be cyclical, meaning that global investors tend to sell them first on signs of an economic slump.
