The financial markets started the week relatively quietly. US and South Korea have kicked off the join annual military exercise today. North Korea warned that the drills would worsen the tensions by "throwing fuel on fire". But markets have little reaction to the news so far. Yen is trading mildly higher, possibly because of that, but strength is limited. On the other hand, European majors are broadly softer. The economic calendar is rather light today. UK Rightmove house price index dropped -0.9% mom in August. Japan all industry activity index rose 0.4% mom in June, in line with expectations. Canada wholesale sales is the only other notable featured data. Markets will have one eye on the developments in the White House, and another eye looking forward to Jackson Hole symposium later in the week.
