The latest headlines are crossing the wires, via CN Wire, citing the suspension of bond trading of yet another Chinese property group.
The above tweet is only going to intensify the concerns over a contagion, fuelled by the country’s troubled Evergrande property development giant.
The risk sentiment got a bit of a boost, earlier on, after Evergrande announced that the main unit Hengda Real Estate group will make a coupon payment for onshore bonds due September 23.
However, the risk-on flows quickly ebbed after investors reassessed the risks, considering that China Evergrande’s repayment to its foreign bondholders still looms on Thursday and that nothing is announced for the same.
The S&P 500 futures, the risk gauge, pares back gains to now trade flat at 4,356 while AUD/USD eases 20-pips to near 0.7250.
