    Tilt to Asia steepens in late October

    By Cameron Brandt 30 Oct 2020

    With the clock ticking down on the US presidential election and COVID-18 cases rising steeply in the US and much of Europe, investors had plenty of reasons to tread cautiously in late October and, for the most part, they did so.
