masterus So when Trump called for the Federal Reserve to to “accept the GIFT” of negative interest rates on Tuesday, a layman might have reasonably interpreted his proposal as the cockamamie fantasy of a certified crank. But the idea that America’s central bank should set benchmark interest rates below zero — which is to say, that it should start taxing the reserves of commercial banks instead of paying interest on them — is not peculiar to Trump. In fact, many respected economists believe that the U.S. should embrace the policy, which is already in effect in Europe and Japan. Further, as of earlier this week, Wall Street investors were betting that the Fed will bring interest rates below zero by mid-2021 in order to promote recovery from the coronavirus crisis.

The Trump administration has increased the pressure on Huawei by tightening export controls on the Chinese telecoms group and its suppliers, heightening tensions with Beijing that have flared during the coronavirus pandemic.

The US commerce department accused Huawei of continuing to use American technology in its semiconductor designs, despite having been subject to export controls since May 2019.

The move to close loopholes in those controls came at the end of a week in which the Trump administration prevented a government pension fund from investing in Chinese stocks and President Donald Trump suggested the US could “cut off the whole relationship” with China.

masterus Australia is the most China-reliant economy in the developed world, leaving it vulnerable to blowback from Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s calls for an independent probe into the origins of the coronavirus.

Authorities in Beijing wasted little time responding. First, their ambassador warned Chinese citizens may no longer visit Down Under or choose it as the destination to educate their children. And this week, China announced an anti-dumping probe into barley exports and the suspension of meat imports from four Australian processing plants.

The big ticket items of iron ore, coal and natural gas that China needs to build and fuel its economy have so far remained unmentioned. But the barley and beef blows -- which authorities from both sides have sought to downplay -- can be interpreted as shots across the bow of Australia’s economy.

masterus Negative interest rates are coming and investors will now be looking to bolster their portfolios to ‘get ahead of the curve and build wealth.

Rate options, which gauge monetary policy forecasts, implied on Monday a 23% likelihood that the key federal funds rate will drop below zero by the end of 2020, according to BofA Securities data.

masterus It’s not just the US, the world’s largest economy, which is moving towards this scenario.

On Tuesday, the Deputy Governor of the Bank of England also suggested that the UK may be headed toward negative interest rates.

A new global era of negative interest rates would have been unimaginable even a few months ago. But this has now changed due to the coronavirus.
18/05/2020 7:40 PM
masterus As central banks around the world grapple to control the economic impact, it can be reasonably expected that more and more of them will take a dramatic change of policy course and take rates to below zero - like their peers in Europe and Japan.

There is legitimate debate about the efficacy of negative interest rates on boosting economies.

masterus Australian coal exporters are facing the risk of tougher restrictions selling into China as government authorities in Beijing direct state-owned power plants to purchase domestic product instead.

The move threatens to add to escalating tensions between Australia and its largest trading partner and follows new customs reforms that analysts fear could lead China to delay cargoes of Australia's most lucrative export, iron ore.

masterus US Senate passes bill to delist Alibaba, Baidu and other Chinese companies from US stock exchanges

The US Senate passed a bill to delist Alibaba, Baidu and other Chinese companies from US stock exchanges, as tensions between US and China flared up once again. The bill seeking to delist Chinese companies was introduced by John Kennedy, a Republican, and Chris Van Hollen, a Democrat. Signalling bipartisan support, the Senate passed the bill unanimously. It would also require companies to certify that they’re not under the control of a foreign government. Shares of Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba saw its US-listed shares fall more than 2% after the development.

buffet3333 PB Bank got no hope, price slowly drop starting 2 years ago, exactly from May 2018 from $25 to $15 now....it will drop to $12 @ P/E 8.0 same P/E as many of the bank in malaysia and around the world. Nobody wants to buy expensive bank for no reason, dividend not interesting, growth not interesting, services nothing special, nothing good actually. Institutions investor will aggressively sell it to buy other banks stocks overseas.

masterus Hong Kong police fired tear gas and water cannon to disperse thousands of people who rallied on Sunday to protest against Beijing's plan to impose a new national security law on the semi-autonomous city.

In a return of the unrest that roiled Hong Kong last year, crowds thronged the Causeway Bay shopping area in defiance of curbs imposed to contain the coronavirus. Chants of "Hong Kong independence, the only way out" echoed through the streets.

aliyusof TP 10? Day dreaming. Rm14 also tough to get
28/05/2020 11:41 AM
masterus For nearly three decades, the U.S. has given Hong Kong special status — letting goods flow back and forth without tariffs and people to fly in and out with no visas. Other countries do the same. That makes Hong Kong a vital business hub, according to Fraser Howie, an independent financial analyst in Singapore.

It’s a “very unique environment, different from the mainland,” Howie said. “Hong Kong was always seen as low-tax, exciting destination, a can-do type of place.”

If Washington ditches Hong Kong’s special status, there’d be “serious implications,” the U.S. Chamber of Commerce warned.

wkl318 I agree with buffet3333. If you look at the TP for pbb given by various analysts above, I would say the majority are day dreaming. HLG gave TP as 13.70 which is the lowest but realistic. The emotional component of a share price is more important and a common driver of share prices than value. It was the super high emotion that pbb traded for a long period of time at rm25 in 2018. It took a long time for the emotion to peter down. So don't keep looking at the rear mirror. Pbb is an old one trick horse now.

Goofy Fully agree with RedEagle. Lets decide to take action around nov/dec 2020.

Coming Quarter report will be ugly due to no income on mortgages and HP and subsequent one will see NPL rise.
