    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.

    Technology shares have tumbled in Hong Kong and the US as the Bloomberg Commodity Index rose to the highest level since 2013, raising the spectre of inflation. In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng Tech Index plunged 5.5%, in the worst-sell off since mid-November. In the US, the NASDAQ Composite Index tumbled 2.5% to a 3-week low.

    Hong Kong’s Financial Secretary, Paul Chan, is expected to unveil an austerity budget tomorrow as he expresses concern over the deficit which is expected to hit a record high of HK$300 billion in the current fiscal year. The finance minister is expected to announce measures to develop a green ecosystem in Hong Kong, which he believes is key to the city’s economic recovery.
    Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi urged the Biden Administration to remove tariffs and sanctions and to “build up goodwill.” He said the actions of the Trump administration to suppress and contain China were the root cause of the difficulties in their bilateral relations. He added, the US should abandon the “irrational suppression” of China’s technology progress.
    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Dickie Wong of Kingston Securities and Alex Frew McMillian from Dragonfly Media. With a view from South Korea is Peter Kim of KB Securities.
