It’s been a quiet start to the week with both the US and Japan enjoying a long weekend and investors in this part of the world focusing on the second US Presidential debate. Most economists agree that as polls swing in Clinton’s favour the USD should strengthen.

Overnight Russian President Vladimir Putin’s comments that Russia is ready to “join common efforts to limit oil production and urges others to as well” send oil prices rocketing higher.
