Summary of lead morning meeting:
It is reported that the leaders of the Sino-US negotiations held their first meeting since the end of July on Thursday, and business groups were optimistic that China and the United States might be able to find enough common ground to postpone the US plan to raise tariffs on China, which was scheduled to begin next week. An American Chamber of Commerce official briefed by China and the United States said that despite growing friction between the two world's largest economies, the two sides are still likely to reach a lower-level "preliminary outcome" agreement on issues such as exchange rate and copyright protection.
Brexit is also in the dark, with British and Irish leaders agreeing after constructive talks that there is a potential path to the Brexit agreement;
The US consumer price index (CPI) fell by 0.1 per cent in September, with core inflation falling, supporting expectations that trade tensions posed a risk to the economy as the Fed cut interest rates for the third time this year in October.

"this meeting will make appropriate and strong positive decisions that will bring stronger and more continuous stability to us in 2020," Barkin told reporters in London. "all options are possible," he said when asked about the prospect of further production cuts. "
