    Global equity markets have staged a strong rebound led by banking shares. In Hong Kong the Hang Seng Index was boosted by the biggest jump in shares of HSBC since 2009.

    The number of deaths globally from Covid-19 has passed 1 million according to data from Johns Hopkins University. The World Health Organisation says the official coronavirus death toll is likely to be an underestimate of the true total. The WHO said it plans to make 120m cheap Covid-19 antigen tests available to lower and middle-income countries.

    The US federal judge who halted a ban on downloads of the popular video app TikTok, said the US government had likely overstepped its authority under national security law, according to his decision made public yesterday. It means new US users can continue to download the app from app stores until November 12, when a total ban is due to go into effect.

    Hong Kong’s Financial Secretary Paul Chan said yesterday the government has spent more than HK$300bn on economic relief measures, equivalent to as much as 11% of the territory's GDP. The fiscal deficit for 2020-21 will be more than HK$300bn and the fiscal reserves will fall to about HK$800bn, which is close to the level seen in 2003 after the Sars crisis. Chief Executive Carrie Lam said the government would launch a new round of its virus relief fund to try and stimulate the economy out of recession. But it appears there will be no further cash handouts.

    Retail sales in China returned to growth for the first time this year climbing 0.5% year-on-year in August compared to July’s 1.1% fall. Industrial output for the period January to August also returned to growth.

    The World Trade Organization has ruled that some of the US tariffs imposed on Chinese goods, starting in 2018, violated global trade rules. The US imposed tariffs on US$360bn of Chinese imports, which a WTO panel ruled were discriminatory and excessive.

    James McCormack, Global Head of Sovereign Ratings at Fitch says that it will take some time before the US inflation rate goes beyond 2% and the Fed is unlikely to raise interest rates for a long time.

    Jack Siu, Director & Senior APAC Strategist at Credit Suisse sees further improvement in China's economy but warns that recovery doesn't mean normalcy.

    RTHK's International Economics Correspondent Barry Wood thinks that the politicisation of US fiscal policy is going to stay until the November elections.
