    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.

    New claims for US unemployment benefits fell to their lowest weekly level in more than five decades last week as business struggled to recruit staff amid labour shortages. There were 199,000 initial jobless claims on a seasonally adjusted basis last week, down from 270,000 the previous week, and well below economists’ forecasts of 260,00 for the week. Jobless claims are now at their lowest level since November 1969. There were 2 million continuing claims recorded a week earlier, above pre-pandemic levels of about 1.7m.

    The minutes of the Fed’s monetary policy committee November meeting, at which the FOMC agreed to start winding down its US$120bn a month of bond purchases, stressed the need for the central bank to be flexible. Policymakers also said inflation would “take longer to subside than they had previously assessed”. Stagflation fears were also raised as "the staff continued to judge that the risks to the baseline projection for economic activity were skewed to the downside and that the risks around the inflation projection were skewed to the upside."
    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Personal Wealth Adviser Enzio Von Pfeil and Andrew Freris at UCAP HK Asset Management. With a view from Taiwan is Ross Feingold of SafePro Group.

    Andrew Freris, Chief Strategist at UCAP HK Asset Management notes that emerging markets such as Turkey are experiencing a fresh wave of inflation.

    Ross Feingold, Business Development Director at SafePro Group thinks that the US is trying to deepen their connection with Taiwan through the democracy summit, but taking small steps as it does not want to break the 'one-China' principle with mainland China.
