Markets are looking through the prospect on any unrest on inauguration day, but the more immediate question is what with the President do today? Reuters is reporting he is withdrawing licences from any companies working with Huawei, is anything else in the offing? NAB’s Tapas Strickland says it doesn’t really matter too much what the President does, because it can always be undone in the days that follow. The bigger question is what will Biden’s attitude be to China? There’s also discussion on today’s podcast about yesterday’s GDP numbers for China, expectations for the ECB meeting this week and political unrest in Italy.
