    Business and Market Discussion

    US stocks made another stunning comeback on Tuesday for the second day in a row as the major indices pared big losses late in the trading session. The Dow was down over 800 points in the morning session before recovering to close 67 points lower at 34,298. The S&P 500 fought its way back from a 2.8% loss to close down 1.2% at 4,356. The Nasdaq Composite Index, which was down 3.2% in the morning session, ended the day with losses of 2.3% at 13,539.
    The International Monetary Fund has cut its 2022 global growth forecast from 5.9% in 2021 to 4.4% in 2022, with this year’s figure being half a percentage point lower than previously estimated. The revised outlook was led by markdowns in the world’s two largest economies. The US is expected to grow 4.0% in 2022, 1.2 percentage points lower than previously forecast, as the Fed withdraws its monetary stimulus. China is predicted to grow 4.8% this year, down 0.8 percentage points from earlier estimates because of disruptions caused by its zero-Covid policy, as well as “projected financial stress” among its property developers.
    China’s Commerce Ministry said on Tuesday that the foreign trade situation will be grim in 2022, and warned of “unprecedented” difficulties ahead this year. Li Xingqian, head of the MOFCOM’s foreign trade department, said the faltering global recovery, due to Covid outbreaks, supply chain disruptions and rising inflation, will affect foreign trade. He warned some countries are cutting economic stimulus too fast which will lead to demand contractions and hit exports from Chinese industry in 2022.

    On Wednesday’s Money Talk we’re joined by Alicia Garcia Herrero, Chief Economist for Asia Pacific at Natixis, Carlos Casanova, Senior Asia Economist at UBP and RTHK’s International Economics Correspondent, Barry Wood.

    Alicia Garcia Herrero, Chief Economist for Asia Pacific at Natixis suggests that India, Vietnam and Malaysia are countries to look out for that could see trade benefits from the move to outsource supply chains away from China, because of their young, growing populations.

    Carlos Casanova, Senior Asia Economist at UBP expects Hong Kong's economy will be weak in the first two quarters of 2022 due to a reduction in consumption and covid-19 restrictions.

    RTHK’s International Economics Correspondent, Barry Wood, predicts that the US Federal Reserve will signal monetary policy tightening at the end of the FOMC meeting, Thursday morning, HK time, but the market will like what it hears.

    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.
