    FX Update: Geopolitics take centre stage ahead of FOMC – #SaxoStrats
    US President Trump will speak at the UN today on North Korea and Iran – potentially a critical speech, depending on the degree to which China is blamed for the rogue state’s aggressions. Elsewhere, the Bank of Canada poured cold water on the CAD rally and EURUSD is poking at 1.2000 after a Portuguese debt upgrade.

    Morning Markets: China has the Moody's blues
    Moody's cut China's credit rating to A1 from Aa3 on worries about its growing debt, and Chinese and Australian shares fell on the news, though the reaction was relatively muted. Oil prices firmed on expectations that Opec-led production cuts will be extended at Thursday's Opec meeting.

    Athens accepts additional austerity to secure bailout funds
    Last year, debt-laden Greece said no more austerity. Today it caved in when Greek officials reached a deal with international lenders to secure disbursement of further rescue funds. But the answer is not more money and debt forgiveness. Let Greece default and leave the Eurozone, and let creditors pay the price for the risk they took.

S&P affirmed on Wednesday the Philippines’ long-term credit rating of ‘BBB’ and short-term credit rating of ‘A-2,’ with a stable outlook.
