Key News Overnight:
U.S. President Donald Trump will face an impeachment inquiry. Nancy Pelosi announced that House Democrats will open a formal investigation amid allegations the president pressured Ukraine’s leader to investigate political rival Joe Biden. Trump, who maintained he withheld $400 million in aid to Ukraine over an unknown dispute with Europe, said he’ll release the full transcript of his July 25 phone call with Volodymyr Zelenskiy on Wednesday.
Boris Johnson’s Brexit strategy is in tatters after the U.K. Supreme Court ruled his decision to suspend Parliament was unlawful. Johnson’s office insisted he won’t resign, despite calls from Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn for him to do so, and the PM said he’s “cautiously optimistic” on a Brexit deal.
Oil fell the most in a week after Trump’s UN speech darkened the outlook for global economic growth that underpins energy demand. Gold rebounded, and palladium traded near a record. Nickel and zinc led industrial metals lower in London.
