1. Power play in Beijing: The new lineup for the Chinese Communist Party’s all-powerful Politburo Standing Committee was unveiled Wednesday. The key takeaway? It does not feature a heir apparent to Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Analysts say that Xi has managed to tighten his already strong grip on power, and predict he will continue dominate the country’s politics for decades to come.

“There are few signs that Xi plans to use his increased power to resolve China’s key structural problems,” said Julian Evans-Pritchard, China economist at Capital Economics.

“The only silver lining is today’s promotion of key officials that favor greater reform, which offers a modicum of hope that policy could shift in a more liberal direction in future,” he added.

Chinese stocks were higher on Wednesday.

2. U.K. GDP: Britain’s economy expanded by 0.4% in the three months ended September compared to the previous quarter.

That’s better than economists expected, and a notch faster than the 0.3% rate posted in both the first and second quarters.

The pound gained 0.3% against the dollar following the release.

3. Ransomware attack: The U.S. government has issued a warning about a new ransomware attack that has spread through Russia and Ukraine and into other countries.

It has also been detected in countries including the U.S., Germany and Japan.
