    Business and Market Discussion

    Stock markets in Asia, Europe and the US have fallen sharply on fears that inflation is set to pick up and concerns over high valuations. Some of the biggest falls occurred in Hong Kong, where the Hang Seng dived 2%, and the UK, where the FTSE 100 tumbled 2.5%. In China, the “National Team” appeared to step in during the afternoon session to stabilise the market.

    The latest economic data from the mainland shows inflation on the rise. China's Consumer Price index rose 0.9% y/y in April, a seven-month high. The Producer Price Index climbed 6.8% y/y from 4.4% the previous month, the fastest pace since October 2017. Economists had been forecasting a rise of 6.5%.
    China's mainland population reached 1.41 billion, according to data from the seventh national population census released by the National Bureau of Statistics on Tuesday. The growth of 5.4% since the last census in 2010 was the slowest since the 1960’s. The number of people aged between 15 and 59 dropped nearly 7%, while those aged over 60 was up more than 5%.

    Stewart Aldcroft, Chairman of CitiTrust suggests that stimulus cheques and savings has kept the US economy motoring, and people are now spending more due to the easing of COVID-19 restrictions.

    Andrew Freris, CEO of Ecognosis Advisory thinks that the decline in the birth rate and the ageing population in China will have no adverse effect on the economy if productivity improves.

    RTHK’s International Economics Correspondent Barry Wood thinks that inflation in the US markets will be benign for the time being, but might jump higher in the coming months, leading to a rise in interest rates.

    Business and Market Discussion

    The New York Stock Exchange said yesterday it will no longer delist China’s three biggest state-owned telecommunications companies. Bloomberg is reporting that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin called NYSE President Stacey Cunningham Tuesday to express his disapproval with the exchange’s surprise decision to spare China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom from being delisted.

    The World Bank has forecast that global GDP would grow by 4% in 2021. However, the multilateral lender warned that the global economic recovery from Covid-19 will rely heavily on the successful rollout of vaccines, and any delay risks more than halving this year’s growth rate.

    Polls will close at 8am HK time in the US state of Georgia where voters are electing two Senators in a special run-off election which will decide control of Congress. There has been a record turnout for a runoff race with more than 3 million Georgians, or 40% of the electorate, voting in advance of polling day.

    President Donald Trump, still seeking ways to reverse his election defeat, falsely claimed Tuesday that “the Vice President has the power to reject fraudulently chosen electors”, when a joint session of Congress meets later today to certify the results of the Electoral College.

    Stewart Aldcroft, Chairman of CitiTrust, warns that a delay in President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration should not be ruled out and investors need to brace for further uncertainty.

    Iris Pang, Greater China Chief Economist at ING Asia, says that listing in Hong Kong gives firms the advantage of attracting flow from inside and outside of mainland China, thanks to the Shanghai-Hong Kong stock connect.

    RTHK's International Economics Correspondent Barry Wood says that the New York Stock Exchange's refusal to delist sanctioned Chinese telcos was likely done on pressure from investors, as lawsuits could follow.
