    The People’s Bank of China has cut the one-year loan prime rate by 10bps from 3.8% to 3.7%. It’s the second reduction in a month. In December, the PBOC cut the one-year loan prime rate for the first time since April 2020. The five-year loan prime rate was reduced by 5 basis points from 4.65% to 4.6%, in its first cut since April 2020.


    Inflation in Hong Kong hit a five-month high in December, driven up by rising costs of meals out, takeaway food and electricity charges. Consumer prices rose 2.4% year-on-year in December, up from the 1.8% increase recorded the previous month. Netting out the effects of one-off government relief measures, the underlying inflation rate was 1.4% in December, 0.2 percentage points higher than that in November and at a 19-month high.


    The International Monetary Fund has warned that the balance of risks facing Hong Kong’s economy are tilted to the downside. The IMF forecast that economic growth in the SAR will decline from 6.4% in 2021 to 3% in 2022. In its annual report it said risks to the economy include ongoing uncertainty linked to the pandemic, which could impact the flow of people and further weigh on consumption, along with a slower than expected global recovery, and continued disruption of global supply chains. The report said a quicker reopening of borders could drive a stronger recovery in private consumption.

    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Kenny Wen of Everbright Securities International and Andrew Freris from UCAP HK Asset Management. With a view from India is Toby Lawson, CEO of Societe Generale India.

    The Opec+ group of major oil producing nations have agreed to stick with production increases in a major win for President Biden and oil consumers. Opec+ members agreed to increase crude supply next year by 400,000 barrels a day, despite the oil price having fallen almost 20% in the past week. The decision comes after a high-level US delegation visited Saudi Arabia this week and called for more supply to bring down prices that until last week had doubled in 12 months and fuelled rising inflation in the US.

    On Wall Street, US stocks rebounded Thursday from the Omicron selloff, shrugging off two negative sessions. The S&P 500 has moved at least 1.2% in either direction, on each of the last four days, including a stunning reversal on Wednesday when the index gave up gains of 1.9% early in the day to close 1.2% lower. Yesterday, the index jumped 1.4% and held on to its gains to close at 4,577.
    In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng opened 135 points lower but clawed back losses to end the morning day 130 points, or 0.6% higher, at 23,789. The Hang Seng Tech index was down 0.7%. Shares of Alibaba dropped 2.5%, hitting an all-time low. Shares of Macau junket operator Suncity Group plunged 20% at one stage after it resumed trading in Hong Kong on Thursday morning. In volatile trading, the stock ended the day 3% lower. The shares were suspended from trading on Wednesday after crashing 48% the previous day.
