What’s on today?
In the U.S, data-wise we will see CPI data for September. We expect the CPI to rise 0.2% m/m basis. With the limited data releases, market participants remain to focus on the geopolitical concerns with ongoing Trade war risk especially US-China and rising bond yields which lead to the global equity indices sell-off.

It is important to always keep in mind the risks involved in trading with leveraged instruments.
