    Hong Kong’s unemployment rate in the three months ending August stood at 6.1%, unchanged from the May-to-July period, the highest level since January 2005. The consumption and tourism related sectors were among the hardest hit, with a combined jobless rate of 10.9%, the highest since the SARS outbreak in 2003.

    The Bank of Japan has left its policy rate unchanged at minus 0.1% and will maintain a target yield of 0% on the 10-year JGB. It said inflation was likely to remain negative for the time being and the central bank expected only a modest improvement in the economy in the near term. The BOJ said in a statement, “Japan’s economy remains in a severe state but has started to pick up as business activity gradually resumes.”

    The Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee voted on Thursday to keep interest rates at 0.1%, in line with expectations, and also decided not to increase its asset purchase programme. The MPC warned that “the outlook for the economy remains unusually uncertain”. The Bank of England surprised investors by revealing it is examining how negative interest rates might be implemented.

    Australian unemployment unexpectedly fell in August, with more than half of the jobs lost from the Covid-19 outbreak regained. The unemployment rate dipped to 6.8% from 7.5% in July and employment surged by 111,000 beating estimates of an expected 35,000 drop.

    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Francis Lun of GEO Securities. With a view from Australia is Toby Lawson at Societe Generale Australia.

    The US Federal Reserve has cut interest rates by 25bps as anticipated but the FOMC is divided on further action later this year. President Trump criticised the decision tweeting that the Fed had shown “no guts, no sense and no vision.” The Hong Kong Monetary Authority has followed suit and cut its base lending rate by 25bps to 2.25%.

    Joshua Wong and other Hong Kong activists have told a US congressional hearing that Beijing was eroding the city’s autonomy and it was unable to understand or govern a free society. He urged the US to reassess Hong Kong’s special trade status. US Lawmakers are considering enacting the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, which would allow sanctions on Chinese officials and require annual assessments of whether the city is sufficiently autonomous from Beijing to continue its special trading status. House speaker Nancy Pelosi says Congress will move swiftly to pass the act.

    On today’s Money Talk, analysing the Fed’s interest rate decision are Enzio von Pfeil from St. James’s Place and Samuel Faveur of Mandarin Capital. Providing the view from Taiwan is Political Risk Consultant, Ross Feingold.

    Enzio von Pfeil, Private Wealth Adviser at St. James’s Place, says that President Trump will blame the Fed if the economy is not performing well and he loses in the upcoming presidential election.

    Samuel Faveur, CEO and Founder of Mandarin Capital, comments that the Fed's decision to cut interest rates by 25bps makes sense and is in line with the economic data which show signs of a slowdown in the US economy.

    Taiwan-based Political Risk Consultant Ross Feingold says that the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act is gaining support among both Democrats and Republicans in the US Congress, and that the bill is very likely to pass. Mr. Feingold adds that if Hong Kong loses its special trade status, the cost of doing business here will rise.
