    Business and Market Discussion

    Global equities have tumbled once again after the boss of pharmaceuticals firm Moderna cast doubt on the effectiveness of existing vaccines against the new Omicron variant of Covid-19 and hawkish comments from Fed chairman Jerome Powell. Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel told the Financial Times yesterday that the rapid spread of Omicron in South Africa suggested that the current crop of vaccines may need to be modified next year.

    Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said yesterday that the US central bank should consider tapering its bond-buying stimulus more quickly and warned that the variant adds to economic risks and complicates the inflation picture.
    Activity in China’s manufacturing sector unexpectedly expanded last month. China's official manufacturing PMI gauge registered 50.1, up from 49.2 the previous month and beating economists’ forecasts of 49.6. The mainland's official non-manufacturing PMI dropped slightly to 52.3, from 52.4 in October.
    On today’s Money Talk we’re joined by Mark Michelson from IMA Asia, Nick Marro of the Economist Intelligence Unit and RTHK’s International Economics Correspondent, Barry Wood.

    The US and other major oil consuming nations will release oil from their strategic reserves in a coordinated bid to bring down high oil prices. The US, which has the world’s biggest reserves, will release 50 million barrels of oil, about 2.5 days’ worth of US oil consumption, and will be joined by China, India, Japan, South Korea and the UK. India will release five million barrels, and the UK 1.5 million barrels, while South Korea, Japan and China will announce the amount and timing of their releases in due course.

    On Wall Street, US stocks were hit by the continued selloff in technology stocks as investors weigh the chances of a faster than expected increase in interest rates, to battle soaring inflation. Fed fund futures, are pointing to a roughly 75% chance that the Fed raises rates by next June, up from about 60% a month ago.
    The selloff in Hong Kong shares extended into a fifth day on Tuesday with the Hang Seng index sinking to a six-week low. It closed 300 points, or 1.2% lower, at 24,651. Tech stocks once again led the declines as a series of disappointing earnings reports sent investors to the sidelines. The Hang Seng Tech index tumbled 1.4%.

    Kenny Wen, Wealth Management Strategist at Everbright Sun Hung Kai notes that the US and China are working together on different strategies to combat climate change, and he foresees that trade tariffs will reduce in the upcoming months.

    David Roche, President and Global Strategist at Independent Strategy, predicts that the US Federal Reserve will raise interest rates by the end of next year by 50 basis points.

    RTHK’s International Economics Correspondent, Barry Wood suggests that the release of oil from US strategic reserves will make little difference to the oil markets or bring down inflation.
