  • Asian markets stuttered again on Wednesday following the previous day’s sharp drop.
  • Adding to the unease are ongoing tensions between China, the US and several other nations over Beijing’s imposition of a security law in Hong Kong.
  • Bloomberg News reported that discussions had been held within the Trump administration on the possibility of undermining the decades-old US-Hong Kong dollar peg as part of an effort to hit back at China over the controversial new law in the city.
