FTSE 100 logs 3rd straight drop as US-China trade fight intensifies

 Had last fallen to $1.3168, breaking below $1.3200 for the first time since November 2017, according to FactSet data. Sterling traded at $1.3245 late Monday in New York.

What drove markets?

The intensifying U.S.-China trade spat commanded market action on Tuesday, after Trump threatened further tariffs on Chinese goods.

“Further action must be taken to encourage China to change its unfair practices, open its market to United States goods, and accept a more balanced trade relationship,” Trump said in a statement late Monday.

Beijing, meanwhile, threatened to impose tariffs on another batch of U.S. products if the Trump administration follows through with a second round of levies, the state-run Xinhua News Agency reported. China had previously announced plans for retaliatory tariffs on U.S. goods worth $34 billion, including soybeans, whiskey and electric cars.

Communication consensus

Proof of concepts around interoperable messaging are already underway by both Telstra Health and HealthLink.

Telstra Health is leading a consortium to test the delivery of discharge summaries from Royal Melbourne Hospital to a number of general practitioners. CorePlus, Genie Solutions, Global Health, HealthLink, and Zedmed are also participating in this project.

HealthLink is leading another consortium testing the delivery of referrals from a range of GPs to specialists in a project involving MedicalDirector, Best Practice Software, Genie Solutions, Global Health, and Telstra Health.

Both consortia are finalising a federated search capability which will allow for the searching of provider directories and care provider electronic addresses. This means that a single search will identify Australian healthcare providers, providing an easier way for clinicians looking up other clinicians. The sending of messages across these sites will commence this month. The projects have also been extended to include allied health practitioners and electronic medical record products.

I decided to visit 3 shopping centres over the weekend - Westfield, Brent Cross and Blue Water, all in London.

Oddly enough, I answered another question in pretty much a similar way to how you put your questions, and I was tarred and feathered for "not knowing what it is like for real people out there" (am I a figment of someone's imagination?
