China’s PMI numbers over the weekend were better than expected. I ask NAB’s David de Garis whether this assumes a strong, risk-on mood for the first week of a new quarter?
Today was the day the UK was to leave the EU – we’ll get a new date today. NAB’s Tapas Strickland talks about procrastination in US China trade talks too, which isn’t helping the global slowdown.
Sterling took a hit on the latest Brexit shenanigans. NAB’s Gavin Friend talks through the day in Brussels, plus the reaction to the Fed 24 hours on.
China and Europe both playing hardball on deals today. NAB’s Rodrigo Catril and I surmise it’s all part of the art of the deal. Plus, a prelude to the FOMC meeting tomorrow.
A man with a sick child accosts the PM during a hospital visit about NHS cuts. The man happens to be a Labour supporter. With those views he was hardly likely to be a Tory. So why did @bbclaurak see fit to tweet his profile so he could be abused by Boris backers?#LauraKuenssberg
