Money Talk:The head of the HKMA Norman Chan said that there could be 8 to 9 more interest rate rises from now to 2019. The HKMA raised its base rate for the second time in 3 months to 1.25% in response to the Fed move. More surprisingly, the People’s Bank of China has also raised short-term interbank rates, to protect against a pick-up in capital outflows. In the markets, relief over the Fed decision and the result of the Dutch elections has sent the euro, gold and emerging market stocks all higher. Joining today’s Money Talk are Francis Lun, CEO of GEO Securities and Dickie Wong, director of research at Kingston Securities. We also get a view from Australia with Toby Lawson of CEO of Societe Generale Securities Australia. (8am-8.30am, email to email@example.com, text to 63 93 59 25, )

Francis Lun, CEO of GEO Securities says Hong Kong Monetary Authority head Norman Chan's prediction of 8 or 9 more interest rate rises between now and 2019 may be because he wants to scare the market and cool down the property market. Dickie Wong, executive director of research at Kingston Securities says there is still room for money to be pulled out of the bond market and he is very bullish on the local stock market.
