    China Insight: USD/CNH to Keep Rallying on Failure to Reach Trade Deal

    By Tim Cheung 14 May 2019

    China Insight 0514

    US President Trump tweeted on 5 May that tariffs on the USD200bn in Chinese imports will rise from 10% to 25% on 10 May and that an additional USD325bn of goods will get a 25% tariff shortly. Trump attributed his decision to the slower-than-expected progress of the US-China trade negotiations and China's attempt to renegotiate. US Trade Representative Lighthizer and US Treasury Secretary Mnuchin had implicated on 6 May that Chinese officials tried to re-open negotiation on areas that had already been negotiated. In the eyes of US negotiators, Chinese officials' moves represented an erosion of commitments by China and a big change in direction for the negotiation.

    China Insight: Peak of Loosening Already Behind Us

    By Tim Cheung 07 May 2019

    China Insight 0507 1

    The Politburo held a regular meeting on economic affairs on 19 April. Besides reiterating structural deleveraging, the Politburo once again adhered to the orientation that houses are used for living, not for speculation. Following the Politburo's warning on preventing speculation in property, both Chinese property equities and bonds retreated during the following trading days. In our view, China's top leaders are getting wary again of the risk of being overleveraged if the property developers increase their land acquisition aggressively in order to meet the rising home demand in the prevailing looser monetary environment.

    By Tim Cheung 29 Apr 2019
