    US stocks have rallied after James Bullard, president of the St Louis Fed, warned that the Fed needed to be careful not to raise rates too fast this year to avoid slowing the economy too much. That sent shares on Wall Street soaring higher in early trade only for them to give up most of those gains by the close.

    The minutes of the last European Central Bank meeting show policy makers in the Eurozone concerned about the strength of the euro and fearing that the Trump Administration was deliberately trying to engage in currency wars.

    A top diplomat at the US Treasury said that the US must do more to confront China on trade. David Malpass, the Treasury's undersecretary for international affairs, accused Beijing of “patently non-market behaviour” and said that economic liberalisation on the mainland had gone into reverse.

    China's tourism industry earned revenue of 475bn yuan ($75bn) during the Lunar New Year holiday, up 12.6% from the previous year. Chinese holidaymakers made 390 million passenger trips by rail during the week long holiday and spent $146 billion in retail sales and $850 million on movie tickets. 800 million Tencent users sent digital red envelopes and shared nearly 3 billion posts on line.

    Market Discussion / View from China /Innovation and Technology

    US relations with Russia and China have taken a turn for the worse over the weekend. President Donald Trump has criticised China for failing to tackle North Korea, which test fired another missile on Friday capable of reaching the mainland of the US. In a series of tweets he said; “they do NOTHING for us with North Korea, just talk. We will no longer allow this to continue.” Russia has expelled 755 US diplomats in response to new US sanctions imposed as punishment for conclusions by U.S. intelligence that Russia meddled in the 2016 election.

    Economic data released on Friday shows continued improvement in the global economy. US economic growth has picked up speed in the second quarter fueled by an increase in consumer spending. But wage growth has slowed to its weakest in 2 years. That has sent the US dollar and treasury yields lower in the markets.

    Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam says the government needs to intervene more if it wants to compete more with other economies. Her comments appear to signal a possible change of stance on the government's longstanding "positive non-intervention" policy which successive Hong Kong governments have practiced in business and financial matters since the 1970s.

    On today’s Money Talk we review the business headlines with Alex Wong of Ample Capital and Mark To from Wing Fung Financial Group. Ben Cavender of the China Market Research Group in Shanghai provides his view from the mainland. In the second half of the programme we are joined by Nicholas Yang, Secretary for Innovation and Technology of the Hong Kong SAR. (8am-9am, email to moneytalk@rthk.hk)
