China Insight: What Tactics Are Good in Dealing With Ongoing RMB Depreciation

By Tim Cheung 20 Aug 2019

China Insight 0820

On 13th August New York time, the US Trade Representative's Office announced delaying till 15th December the 10% tariffs on about half of the USD300bn of Chinese goods, that were originally scheduled to come into effect 1 September. Though the tariff delay should increase Beijing's interest in sending a delegation to Washington for another round of trade talks in September, we do not think a trade deal will be reached anytime soon. We reiterate our view that China is adopting "better-late-than-early" strategy and will continue to let the trade talks drag on till at least year 2020.

US yield curve inversion the latest wrinkle for mutual fund investors The second week of August saw yields on two-year US Treasuries exceed those of 10-year notes for the first time since 2007, a development viewed by large segments of the investing public and the financial industry as a clear-cut warning that the world’s largest economy will likely slip into recession during the next 18 months.

The story around the above table is a positive one for money-market funds (MMFs). In the first full month of this year’s second half, U.S. MMFs continued a growth spurt that began almost exactly a year ago (last year’s second half). Total assets, all Taxable assets, and assets in six key MMF categories all increased in July, and the end-of-month totals for all funds and for all Taxable funds reached decade highs, as the story notes.

China Insight: RMB Depreciation is Needed as Long as Trade Talks Drag on

By Tim Cheung 13 Aug 2019

China Insight 0813

Asian markets were shocked by Trump's announcement of the imposition of 10% tariff on the remaining USD300bn of Chinese starting, effective 1st September. The announcement came totally unexpectedly as nobody would think in advance that the face-to-face meeting between the US and Chinese trade negotiators would end up with further widening, instead of narrowing, of the gap between two countries.

Money Market Funds pull in over $100 billion in early August

By Cameron Brandt 09 Aug 2019

Money Market Funds pull in over $100 billion in early August Mutual fund investors opted for liquidity during the first week of August as they digested an unpleasant cocktail of weak German data, fears of a currency war between the US and China, hardening positions on Brexit and disappointment with the Fed’s 25 basis points cut in US interest rates at the end of July. Flows into Money Market Funds jumped to a 32-week high, exceeding the $100 billion mark for only the second time since EPFR started tracking them, while a net $24.9 billion flowed out of Equity Funds – their biggest weekly total year-to-date – and another $2.7 billion out of Balanced and Alternative Funds combined.
