    Policy makers at the US Federal Reserve have revised upwards their assessment of economic growth in the US, according to the minutes of their last monetary policy meeting. The Fed signalled that it would continue to raise rates gradually. That has led to a wild ride on Wall Street with a 500 point swing for the Dow as stocks initially surged and then sold off into the close. Treasury bond yields rose to multi-year highs.

    The latest PMI survey data from the US shows activity in the manufacturing and service sector accelerating to the highest level since November 2015. However, PMI data in the Eurozone has disappointed with activity in Germany falling to a 3-month low.

    Economic basket case Venezuela has achieved a novel new form of financing by raising $735 in the first day of the sale of its new cryptocurrency, the petro. The petro is backed by the country’s oil reserves and can be used as payment for taxes, fees and public services. President Nicolás Maduro tweeted that the petro would enable Venezuela to regain economic sovereignty and was a “big solution” to the country’s problems. Venezuela’s economy has sunk into a depression and is suffering from hyperinflation.

    On today’s Money Talk we’re joined by our regular Thursday guest Enzio von Pfeil and Brad Gibson, Portfolio Manager at Alliance Bernstein. Providing the view from Taiwan is Ross Feingold, political analyst from DC Advisory.

    The wild swings in global stocks has continued for a fourth day with shares on Wall Street oscillating between losses and gains. US government bond yields have also jumped higher and are now almost back to where they were before the latest sell-off in shares began.

    China has responded to the US Trump administration’s slapping of tariffs on imports of solar panels and washing machines by filing a complaint with the World Trade Organisation. China says the tariffs are not consistent with international trade rules.

    US Senate leaders have reached a bipartisan budget deal that will keep the government funded for two years. It also significantly increases military and domestic spending by around $300 billion. However, the measure could face resistance in the House of Representatives.

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives and the Social Democrats have agreed in principle on a coalition deal. Germany has been unable to cobble a government together for four months, the longest period without a government since the second world war. The latest agreement seems likely to break the deadlock and lead to the formation of a new government by Easter.

    On today’s programme, our regular Thursday guest, Enzio von Pfeil is joined by Steve Wang from CITIC CLSA. On the phone from Taipei is Maurice Lu of Sinopac Futures in Taiwan.

    Enzio von Pfeil comments that when he looks at his indicators, they show that the global “Economic Time” peaked last October and has been waning a little since then.

    Steve Wang, Senior Credit Analyst at CITIC CLSA, says that the way for Chinese companies to counteract the impact of tariffs by the US, is to produce better products that can compete with American goods.
