China Reassures Investors to Impede a Six-year Low

Chinese Yuan is depreciating nearing a record low in six years. The government is finding ways to hinder the process and recover from this impending threat. However, the deputy Governor of People’s Bank of China (PBOC) said that there is no grounds for a relentless decline and they stopped it from happening.

China is giving off signs that the currency is being carefully monitored and investors should be careful in their trading positions against the currency. Despite this information, this would have much of an impact considering past connotations to the problem since the driving force is the appreciation of dollar.

The PBOC is saying if volatility arises, investors should not be agitated as they would definitely do something to stabilize the situation. China has already eased the local bonds and abandoned the necessity for inbound investment program quotas.

UK economy made a 0.5% growth after the Brexit authorization

Three months after the Brexit happened, UK economy manifested a fast recovery with the help of the country's service sector.

As it was indicated by the Office for National Statistics, there is a 0.5% increase in the economic health during the third quarter of the year. The result is lower compared to the previous quarter with a 0.7% rate, however, the latest increase is much stronger against the analyst's assessment.

Due to the better-than-expected outcome, the preconception regarding BoE's interest cut rate for the following week had subsided. However, the supporters of the referendum believes that these figures are an indication that the entire negative speculations about the EU exit are merely about fear-mongering.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond, said that he will focus to expend on new houses and mass transportation instead of concentrating on balancing the books by 2020.
The Institute for Fiscal Studies have two resolutions: to reduce taxes by increase spending to boost the economy and to set new fiscal targets.

Bremmer further stated his predicted outcome about the tendency that the power in the Middle East more likely will be given to Iran, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Turkey. While in Europe, the issue regarding Brexit will become more vague and undetermined as it will endure longer process. On the other hand, in the Asian continent, China is expected to fill the demand vacuum since it has the capacity to expand worldwide as well as to globally invest to infrastructure assets.

Australia Should Scrap its Largest Bank Notes like India - UBS Group AG

UBS analysts are saying that Australia should also scrap its big bank notes and follow in India’s footsteps, since this would be ultimately beneficial for the Australian economy as well as for Australian banks. Some projected benefits would include increase in bank deposits and tax revenues, while decreasing the occurrence of crime and fraud. India had previously made a move to remove its large banknotes as part of its crackdown on the country’s black economy as well as to counter tax evasion. The European Central Bank also stated last February that the central bank was discussing on removing 500 EUR banknotes since these high-value bills were often touted to be used for criminal and illegal purposes.
