Brexit continues to dominate the world’s business headlines. But, stress levels in the financial markets have dropped.  The EU’s post-Brexit show of unity calmed fears that the EU or Eurozone will fall apart any time soon.  The Fed will see two more jobs reports before September’s key meeting, and we will have a clearer view of the Presidential and Congressional elections.

The RMB hit a 5-year low of 6.7050 against the USD after unexpectedly stellar U.S. Non-Farm Payroll (NFP) jobs data was released last Friday.1 It was a continuation of the RMB’s downtrend after the recent Brexit vote — in spite of the recovery we saw in global FX and equities markets.2
