Kong protests by U.S. Senate and subsequent words of condemnation from the
authorities of Hong Kong and, most importantly, China inspired two respective
rounds of safe haven buying. Concerned about implications for U.S.-China trade
talks, participants remain on the lookout for any material retaliation from
Beijing. Tensions around the Hong Kong bill have overshadowed the PBoC's LPR
fixing, which saw the 1- & 5-Yr rates trimmed by 5bp each, as widely expected.

0.3-4.8bp lower. Bills trade -1 to +2 ticks through the reds. Australian skilled
