    1. Markets are enjoying a resurgence in risk-on sentiment as consensus firms around the notion that the Fed is done hiking rates, with the CMA FedWatch tool suggesting a 93% chance of no rate hike at the next Fed meeting later this month of September. Sentiment is also bullish in China on property stimulus issues, leading to the HIS rising by more than 2% today. Most stock markets are higher since the Asian open today.
    2. Risk-on sentiment is producing a gain in the Australian Dollar, while the US Dollar has been the weakest currency today in the Forex market, putting the AUD/USD currency pair in focus today.
