(RTTNews) - The Singapore stock market has finished lower in two straight sessions, sliding almost 20 points or 0.8 percent along the way. The Straits Times Index now sits just above the 2,525-point plateau and it's expected to extend its losses on Thursday. The global forecast for the Asian markets is soft on concerns over a new wave of the coronavirus and doubts about a new stimulus package to deal with it. The European and U.S. markets were down and the Asian markets are expected to open in similar fashion. The STI finished slightly lower on Wednesday as losses from the properties and industrials were mitigated by support from the financial sector. For the day, the index eased 3.03 points or 0.12 percent to finish at 2,525.61 after trading between 2,521.70 and 2,545.52. Volume was 1.32 billion shares worth 1.25 billion Singapore dollars.

WASHINGTON (NYTIMES) - Three weeks after a debate spectacle defined by heckling and sharply personal attacks, Joe Biden and President Donald Trump will meet again on Thursday (Oct 22; Friday Singapore time) in the last major prime-time opportunity for Trump to try to change the trajectory of the race before Election Day. Republicans would like to see the president offer an affirmative vision for the country and draw policy contrasts with Biden in terms that resonate with the few undecided voters remaining. But Trump, with his history of indiscipline and invective, has struggled to define Biden this year - and he is running short on time. The debate comes 12 days before Election Day, as many Americans have already cast ballots, and as polls show the president trailing nationally and confronting close races even in states he won handily four years ago. Trump's advisers hope that he can get under Biden's skin on Thursday at the debate in Nashville, Tennessee, which will begin at 9pm ET (10am Friday in Singapore). But they have also urged the president not to interrupt Biden repeatedly, after a first contest in which Trump constantly hectored his rival - and
Woodside chief executive Peter Coleman said he expected LNG prices in the coming two quarters to be stronger in light of the improvement in benchmark oil prices. Brent has recovered to now trade at $US41 a barrel. "In particular, I am encouraged by the strengthening Asian LNG spot price, which is now above $US6.50 per million British thermal units for December deliveries," Mr Coleman said. Loading Woodside, Australia's largest independent oil and gas producer, took heavy writedowns this year, wiping $6.3 billion off the value of its assets. It has pulled back from much planned spending, delayed making investment decisions on key growth projects and, last week retrenched 8 per cent of its workforce, or about 300 jobs. After slashing future oil price forecasts due to the potentially longer-term effects of the pandemic, Woodside is exploring ways to improve the economics of its $17 billion Scarborough project and the $30 billion Browse project off the coast of Western Australia.
