    Chinese Economy Accelerated as High as 6.9 percent

    In the first quarter of this year, the Chinese economy performed in a faster pace as it showed some expansion. As the government expenditure spearheaded the growth which is contrary to the expectations that it will slow down as 2017 starts.

    Moreover, the National Bureau of Statistics showed an increase of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) reaching 6.9% on year, particularly in the first quarter. The figure is quite higher versus 6.8% of the past three quarters as well as the projected result of the government ranging from 6.5% to 7%.

    Based on the median forecast from analysts, there will have a quarterly increase of 6.8% in comparison to the GDP in Q4 reaching 1.3% only as presented in the official data.

    China may appear to have a slower growth but it assured a consistent development due to government outlays and lower credit. It further relies on traditional economic drivers coupled with the smokestack industries. The policymakers of the world’s second largest economy already ruled out an extensive economic slowdown which was generally anticipated since the disappointing results way back 2015.

    Turkish Lira Surges as Erdogan Win Rekindles Market Rally

    The Turkish lira surged in value as Recep Tayyip Erdogan came out victorious in the Turkish Presidential elections, sparking renewed interest in the world’s most dismal emerging-market currency for 2017. The lira increased by over 2.5% to clock in at 3.6188 per dollar, the currency’s largest intraday gains since January 2017. The Turkish market is now expected to rally as an instantaneous reaction to this recent win from Erdogan and then step back later on to assess what this means for the country’s economic policies as well as relationships with allied nations such as US and the eurozone.

    New Zealand Inflation Came in Strong in the First Quarter
    The inflation rate of New Zealand soared unexpectedly as much as 2.2 percent in the first quarter which is the top-level over five years. Yet, the central is still committed keeping the interest rates low. Hence, the consumer price index (CPI) hovered in the middle range of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand's (RBNZ) within the 1 to 3 percent target range which they have attempted to lift higher for more than a year. The CPI ascended to 1 percent in the first quarter exceeding the expected 0.8 percent which also transposes the annual growth of 2 percent by analysts.

    This hike in inflation was influenced by short-term gains because of high oil and food prices, a tax hike on alcohol and tobacco and the increasing costs of housing construction. The inflation is ascending although at a sluggish pace which keeps the RBNZ heedful according to the senior economist of the Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) bank.

    March and June Fed Rate Hikes Possible, According to Economists

    Several economists are speculating that the US Federal Reserve could possibly be in for two more rate hikes this coming March and June, with the central bank possibly increasing its short-term rates within the week and another rate increase during the Fed’s meeting this coming June. Fed officials have maintained their current rates after they increased their federal funds rate last December 2016. The central bank had already penciled in a total of three possible hikes for this year but refused to indicate the exact date of the implementation of these said rate hikes.

    Inflation Weighed on the Economy of Britain

    The British economy has cooled significantly in the months of January to March this year because higher inflation put pressure on disposable incomes. The Office for National Statistics is scheduled to publish the estimated GDP data for the first quarter this Friday.

    Great Britain almost forgot the impact of the Brexit referendum on June and had an unexpectedly quick recovery. The growth rates in the third quarter of 2016 reached 0.5% while 0.7 for the last quarter.

    Based on the forecast of city economists, the country will experience an arduous year ahead linked with a 0.4$ steep decline on growth during the first three months of 2017.

    The country previously earned 0.2% which is considered as the weakest performance in the Q1 of 2016.

    Moreover, the sterling became weaker which increased the price for imports and drove the inflation towards its three-year high obtaining 2.3%.

    China’s Bullish GDP Growth Stabilizes Yuan
    The first quarter data of China has come out after a solid positive gain causing a slowdown in capital outflows to stabilize the currency following a selloff last year. They are optimistic to attain the 6.5 percent GDP growth for this year as mentioned by the Finance minister Xiao Jie. This is a good signal indicating the strengthening of yuan and capital flows are gaining back by the country.
    The interest rates are moving in an upward direction despite tighter policies to curb the fast growth of credit hampering the economic progress. Yet, economic growth advanced faster-than-expected 6.9 percent in the first quarter, weakening capital outflows and more stable cross-border flows have strengthened yuan substantially. This has then eased the pressure regards to Foreign exchange reserves as it retreated with the surge of the greenback.
    However, further tightening cannot be ruled out as it may change again abruptly especially when the currency come again under pressure with the global appreciation of the U.S. dollar.

    The appeal of Asian stocks to investors has subsided because of political and economic risks that overshadowed continuous returns over the past 26 years. Asian business has been good in the second half last year up to early this year and is the impetus is slowing down soon

Moreover, political elections in Europe and profit taking in the U.S. bring in corrections that are not good. Another concern is the decline in cyclical upswings in China and the United States which has a big effect on global trading including equities of Emerging market.

    Trade Disparity Between US and Mexico Expands

    The MXN experienced downward pressure after trade war anxieties stemming from Trump’s tough take on trade negotiations with Mexico caused a surge in the US demand for cheaper and more affordable Mexico-sourced goods, thereby increasing the trade disparity between the two countries. Mexican trade deficits jumped by up to 14% just in the first quarter of 2017, a stark contrast to the trade deficit recorded last 2016 in the same period. In addition, the Mexican Peso is also down by 8% against the USD as far as 2017 is concerned. Prior to this development, Trump has repeatedly threatened to build a border wall between the two countries and is now even considering a cancellation of the NAFTA agreement as part of the president’s plan to give new life to US-based factories. The NAFTA trade agreement involves Mexico, Canada, and the US and has enabled lower tariff levels, among others.

    Japan Exports Rallied for 5 Months

    Exports from Japan notably increased for five consecutive months indicating a strong offshore demand and increased shipments of semiconductors and steels that boost economic growth. In April, exports climbed up to 7.5 percent compared with the previous year and lower than the median estimate of 7.8 percent yearly growth.

    On the other hand, its trade surplus with the U.S. also decreased by 4.2 percent from a year ago while the exports jumped by 2.6 percent and continuously grows in the past three months because of high volume of car and auto parts shipments. An economist predicts that this upsurge will continue including domestic imports but the protectionist trade policies of Donald Trump raises concerns with Japan being an export-reliant country.

    Drop in Oil prices as investors discontented in its low figure

    Oil prices declined by 5 percent following the extension of production cuts by Opec causing other oil producing countries to be dismayed who are expecting bigger reduction. Consequently, crude prices dropped to a highest percentage drop since early March.


    During the last OPEC meeting, they reached an agreement to prolong supply cuts constitute of 1.8 million barrels per day until the first quarter ends next year and investors are anticipating around half a million extra barrels to be contracted. However, Saudi Arabia’s energy minister, Khalid al-Falih said that other ministers find it unnecessary to lessen the output further and nine months is the “optimum” duration.


    On the other hand, U.S. shale producers are motivated to provide more supplies because of cheap cost of oil at $50 bpd. Although, they have to be careful since it could exceed the target increase and being down further the price, stated by the Texas shale oil producer president David Arrington.

    Reserve Bank of South Africa Left Rates on Hold

    The South African Reserve Bank kept its interest rates unchanged on Thursday as it played down the thought of a lower cost of borrowing that further influenced the price pressures versus the projections regarding a much slower recovery of the economic struggle

    Reuters polled 26 economists last week have forecasted that the benchmark repo rate will remain at 7 percent as Lesetja Kganyago, the Bank Governor stated that the constricting cycle is over.

    He added that the yearly CPI inflation fell to 5.3 percent in April, however, there is still a possibility that risk might emerge again, especially the pressure relative to the rand currency due to uncertainties in domestic politics along with the downgrades in the debt ratings.

    As the Fitch Ratings Ltd and S&P Global Ratings decided to cut South Africa into a junk status while Moody’s reviewed the downgrade following the cabinet reorganization wherein Pravin Gordhan was dismissed from his job as the finance minister.

    The central bank hopes that the inflation will hit 5.7 percent for 2017 and will acquire 5.3 percent in 2018, with its target that ranges from 3 to 6 percent.

    The ZAR increased on the back of the rate decision reaching 12.8600 per USD to 0.5 percent stronger. The government bonds, on the other hand, lose its strength.

    Fast track Economic Recovery of India in the First Quarter

    The economy of India is considered as the fastest developing major economy globally in the previous quarter, induced by positive performance in manufacturing and services. For short-term, the demonetization has affected the demand but was able to recover. The forecast for this year ranged between 6.5 and 7.8 while the actual data achieved a 7.1 percent growth from January to March this year. It has significantly risen from last year’s Q1 growth of 7.9 percent.

    The upswing in the economic growth was mainly pushed by positive domestic factors taking into account a notable progress of the central bank easing of policy rate into lending rates of financial institutions that made investment appealing to investors. Moreover, the infrastructure spending has substantiated growth and probability for better agricultural output when the monsoon rains become beneficial.

    On the other hand, the goods and sales tax (GST) is also anticipated to contribute to the economy as its removal will encourage more businesses in India. This will be implemented on July 1st.

    G-7 Summit Pushes Through Amid Trade and Climate Concerns

    Amidst the ongoing G-7 summit in Italy, US President Donald Trump has stated via his adviser that he currently has no plans on backing down with regards to his Russian sanctions, thereby quelling any speculations that the US government might be toning down its stance towards Russia. On the other hand, Trump has left a slew of confused allies as he still refuses to confirm whether he will be eradicating the 2015 Paris climate agreement altogether, a move which has been wholly supported by a lot of European nations. The European Council has already stated that this two-day G-7 Summit could possibly be the most challenging summit in years. The summit will have its culmination this coming Saturday.

    EU in Need of Additional ECB Stimulus, Says Draghi

    ECB President Mario Draghi stressed in a statement made last Monday that the eurozone is still in need of more monetary stimulus from the central bank in spite of the region’s apparent economic recovery. Draghi warned that the underlying inflation in the EU economy minus highly volatile food and energy prices are still too insignificant for the ECB to make any actual adjustments with regards to its current monetary policy. The central bank is currently facing mounting pressure from several EU politicians as they call for the ECB to instigate a full-on policy reversal as the European Union enters a new era of increased inflation rates and a recovering economic status.
