TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

Against the Australian dollar it soared to its highest since a January flash crash. The Aussie, seen as a barometer of global risk sentiment, was also hurt by jobs data taken as a green light for an early interest rate cut.

With growing doubts about any improvement in what U.S. President Trump called “testy” trade relations between Washington and Beijing before the G20 summit, investors sold stocks and looked for safety.

Adding to the unease, protests broke out again in Hong Kong over a planned extradition law with mainland China, while oil prices surged after reports of a tanker on fire in the Gulf of Oman followed earlier sabotage attacks on vessels near the Fujairah emirate.
