FOREX

In terms of specifics, BBG headlines have noted that schools, bars and restaurants in Beijing will still require a negative COVID tests taken within the last 48 hours to allow entry.
  • This comes as the China’s daily new COVID case count continues to moderate from the all-time highs lodged at the end of November.
  • The latest RBA monetary policy decision headlines the global docket on Tuesday, with a 25bp hike widely expected & 20-21bp of tightening priced into RBA dated OIS.
