Argentina’s election shock, Hong Kong’s airport closure and other stories of unrest

There’s a continued risk-off mood in the markets today, not helped by protestors forcing the closure of Hong Kong Airport and a surprise defeat of Argentina’s President Macri in primary elections at the weekend.

They also discuss today’s NAB Business Survey, CPI numbers for the US tonight and labour market data from the UK.
