TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
Asia’s trade-exposed currencies inched higher on Monday as China’s rebound from the Covid-19 pandemic stayed on course last quarter, even as caution about the U.S. election outcome kept the U.S. dollar supported against other majors.
China’s gross domestic product grew 4.9% in the September quarter from a year earlier, slower than forecast but faster than the third quarter and aided by strong gains in industrial output and an acceleration in retail sales.
