    Analysts at Westpac, point out that the Australian output growth slowed to 0.3% in the September quarter, well below expectations (market median and Westpac 0.6%).

    *Key Quotes*

    “Annual real GDP growth has slipped to 2.8%; the June quarter annual growth figure was revised lower to 3.1% from 3.4% previously.”

    “Consumer spending was the big surprise in the quarter, up only 0.3% compared to an already weak expected 0.5%. Services, for which there are limited partial indicators, contracted in the quarter, while vehicle operations (spending on fuel) also contracted.”

    “With the low savings rate acting as a “floor” to spending stronger income growth will be required to support the Reserve Bank’s forecast of 3.0% consumption growth in 2019 and 2020. Westpac’s forecast is around 2.5%.” Reported by 50 minutes ago.

    The Asian session today was an eventful one amid renewed fears over the US-China trade war following the US President Trump’s overnight comments. Moderate risk-aversion persisted across the financial markets in Asia that helped the US dollar to recover some ground across its main competitors.

    Among the Asia-pac currencies, the Aussie emerged the biggest loser, down nearly 0.70% below the 0.73 handle, in response to awful Australian Q3 GDP numbers. However, upbeat Chinese Caixin services PMI release offered some temporary respite to the bulls. The Kiwi tracked the losses in its OZ neighbor and headed back towards the 0.68 handle. Meanwhile, the USD/JPY pair bounced-off two-week lows and regained the 113 level amid a broad-based US dollar rebound and BoJ Deputy Governor Wakatabe”s dovish remarks.

    On the commodities front, both crude benchmarks fell nearly -1.60% amid the risk-off action on the Asian equities while gold prices on Comex traded weaker near 1240 levels, as the focus remains on the Treasury yields and Fed’s beige book in the day ahead.

    *Key Focus Ahead*

    Markets brace for a busy Wednesday’s European calendar, with the ECB President Draghi’s speech, the main highlight. However, the second-tier final services PMI releases from the Euro area will also offer some incentives to the EUR, GBP traders ahead of the UK services PMI report due at 0930 GMT. Also, of note remains the Eurozone retail sales report that will drop in at 1000 GMT. In early Europe, the non-monetary policy meeting of the ECB will be held at 0800 GMT and the BOE FPC statement will be published at 0830 GMT.

    In the NA session, the Bank of Canada (BOC) rate decision at 1500 GMT will remain the main highlight amid a lack of the first-tier reports from Canada and the US. However, not much reaction is expected on the BOC rate decision, as the Canadian central bank is expected to stand pat after last month’s 25bps rate hike. Later on, at 1900 GMT, the Fed Beige book will be released, which could offer some fresh insights on the Fed’s monetary policy path.

    *Besides, the following central bankers' speeches will also remain in focus for further trading impetus.*

    Argonaut Resources NL (ASX:ARE) and its joint venture partner Aeris Resources Ltd (ASX:AIS) are about to start drilling the Torrens project in South Australia, which has a larger footprint than the nearby world-class Olympic Dam project. The 8-10 stage I diamond drilling program will utilise an innovative helicopter-supported drilling method as it will take place on the environmentally sensitive Lake Torrens salt lake landform. READ: Aeris Resources to adopt innovative helicopter method in upcoming Torrens drilling The method, which involves a specialised heli-portable diamond drill rig, has been designed to minimise disturbance on the salt lake. Two contracts have been awarded by the partners for the drilling and helicopter services with equipment to be mobilised from mid-December and drilling expected to start in mid-January. Argonaut’s wholly-owned subsidiary Kelaray Pty Ltd holds a 30% stake in the JV with Aeris holding the remaining 70%. READ: Argonaut Resources green lights major drilling program at Torrens Ten 6-metre by 2.8-metre raised work platforms will be transported by helicopter onto the lake and bolted together to act as a stable platform on the lake surface. The drill rig will be flown onto the platform in 16 sections and then re-assembled. Personnel, equipment, drill consumables and other materials will be also transported via helicopter from the exploration camp to the work platform. READ: Argonaut Resources’ leaping share price attracts ASX speeding ticket The Torrens project is 50 kilometres from Oz Minerals Limited’s (ASX:OZL) Carrapateena deposit and 75 kilometres from BHP Billiton Limited’s (ASX:BHP) Olympic Dam mine. Argonaut and Aeris are encouraged by a recent discovery by BHP Billiton Limited (ASX:BHP) of a discrete gravity anomaly around 45 kilometres southwest from Torrens. The Torrens Anomaly is a large regionally significant coincident magnetic and gravity anomaly with a footprint of more than 120 square kilometres. Reported by Proactive Investors 20 minutes ago.

    Rivian's R1S SUV is based on a modular 'skateboard'-style architecture...

    American start-up's third model to exploit performance value of universal 'skateboard' architecture

    The third model to come from new start-up electric car maker Rivian will be a rally-raid style performance car.

    Speaking to Autocar at the LA motor show, Rivian founder and CEO RJ Scaringe said that the model to follow its initial R1T pick-up truck and R1S SUV would be “bananas” in the way it performed.

    “The third vehicle will have a smaller wheelbase [than the R1S SUV] and will be the Rivian interpretation of a rally car with a lot of ground clearance,” said Scaringe.

    Any car Rivian makes has a “combination of on and off-road performance, and a level of functionality that’s unique in its space”, according to Scaringe.

    The UK is very much in Rivian’s plans for its models, with 2021 a likely launch date here for its initial offerings in right-hand drive. Construction will take place in a former Mitsubishi plant that’s currently being converted to Rivian’s requirements, with plenty of the existing infrastructure and machinery able to be used.

    Rivian also has plans to offer its modular skateboard chassis to other car makers, so long as its products don’t compete. Scaringe said he had had several approaches from interested car makers already, and also some from non-car makers interested in launching into the automotive world on a ready-made architecture. 

    The electric skateboard chassis allows for all different types of vehicle to be spawned from it, from cars to public transport. “You could build an 800hp R1T truck or a goods delivery van, or a shuttle bus,” said Scaringe. It’s this that could bring other non-automotive players into the industry, such as online retailers launching their own delivery vehicles. 

    The appeal for car makers is that new architectures are very expensive to develop, and Rivian now has an infinitely flexible one available off the shelf, and can even build the car so long as it does not compete with its own offerings.

    To that end, Rivian plans to keep its own-brand products to smaller, more limited volumes, to stop the brand being too diluted and trying to appeal to a wider customer base.

    Rivian is planning a full global launch for its models, including in both left- and right-hand drive. “California is a huge market here,” said Scaringe. “But China, Europe, North America too, and in right-hand drive [for UK] – in Australia, South Africa.

    “I’ve had lots of requests in the past 24 hours, it’s been a united nations of countries.”

    Rivian plans to sell direct to the consumer where it can, but will partner with dealers in places where that doesn’t allow.

    “We’ll offer direct sale in a lot of areas where possible,” said Scaringe. “In some markets and states [where it isn’t possible] we’ll have partners. Then we’ll have partners on back-end things like servicing. We will own the customer service and experience – it’s important to own that. Dealers understand how to manage scale and how to add value on servicing and parts.”
