Aussie mining giants Rio Tinto and BHP are both in the red again. Although not all of the mining sector is down.

Newcrest Mining is up 2.14 per cent and Fortescue Metals is up 0.27 per cent.

Over in the States, Wall Street closed at high repairing damage from the fallout of the U.S., China trade war, which saw the market dip to the lowest it’s seen in 2019.

The S&P 500 closed 1.3 per cent in the green, Nasdaq rose 1.39 per cent and Dow Jones increased 311.78 points.

The Asian market hasn’t quite recovered, as Wednesday trading begins. Nikkei is down 0.34 per cent and Hang Seng is at a loss of 0.32 per cent.
