© Reuters. Yen in Demand, U.S.-China Talks Extend, Liang Withdraws: Eco Day

(Bloomberg) -- Welcome to Wednesday, Asia. Here’s the latest news and analysis from Bloomberg Economics to help get your day started:

  • U.S.-China trade talks in Beijing are progressing and will extend into today, an American negotiator said. Chinese authorities plan to give a statement following the latest round of negotiations
  • There’s a good chance the yen will strengthen to 100 against the dollar in coming months as slowing global growth and U.S.-China trade tensions keep investors on edge, a former senior Bank of Japan official said
  • Former Federal Reserve economist Nellie Liang withdrew from consideration for a seat on the central bank’s board of governors, the White House said
  • The World Bank cut its forecast for the global economy as slowing growth in trade and investment and rising interest rates sapped momentum, especially in emerging markets
  • President Donald Trump renewed his complaints about Fed rate hikes, calling borrowing costs “rapidly raised” even though the pace has been markedly slower than in previous decades
  • Canada’s recent dip into an economic soft patch will keep the central bank from raising interest rates for a second straight decision today, with investors betting it may even be done with hiking altogether

We encourage you to use comments to engage with users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind: 

  • Enrich the conversation
  • Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed.
  • Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically.
  •  Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and links within a comment will be removed
  • Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user.
  • Don’t Monopolize the Conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also believe strongly in giving everyone a chance to air their thoughts. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended. If we receive complaints about individuals who take over a thread or forum, we reserve the right to ban them from the site, without recourse.
  • Only English comments will be allowed.
