    Business and Market Discussion

    The global equity market selloff continued into Asian trading on Tuesday, but US stocks snapped a four-day losing streak. US shares are on track for their first monthly loss since March. Banks have come under pressure after accusations that several global banks, including HSBC and Standard Chartered, have allowed illicit international payments amounting to US$2 trillion in total, to flow through their accounts, despite being warned that they were suspicious. A sell-off in shares of HSBC and Standard Chartered deepened yesterday in Hong Kong, taking their losses to more than 7% over two days.

    The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development has warned that the Covid-19 pandemic will destroy at least 100 million jobs worldwide this year and push between 90m and 120m people in the developing world into absolute poverty. The group said developing economies faced “another lost decade” because of extra spending on health and collapsing export earnings, which had left a financing gap of US$2tn to US$3tn, which the international community had failed to address.

    UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has warned the British people, in a televised address, that the Covid-19 virus had begun to spread in an “exponential way” and warned that the coming months will be “unquestionably difficult”. He made his comments as the UK government tightened social distancing requirements including guidance to work from home, and a 10pm curfew for bars, restaurants and pubs. The new restrictions could last for six months.
