    The European Central Bank has left interest rates on hold at minus 0.5% and its €1.85tn emergency bond-buying programme unchanged in its first meeting since agreeing on a new monetary policy strategy earlier this month. The ECB set a new symmetric 2% inflation target as part of its first review of its strategy since 2003. But governing council members yesterday were divided on the implementation of the strategy with some saying its commitment to tolerate a moderate and transitory overshoot of its price growth target, increased the risk of inflation surging above its target.

    Bloomberg News is reporting that the Cyberspace Administration of China is considering serious and unprecedented penalties against Didi Global after the ride-hailing giant went ahead with its IPO despite requests from the regulators for a delay. The CAC considered it a challenge to Beijing’s authority. Bloomberg is suggesting the fine could likely be bigger than the record US$2.8 billion that Alibaba paid earlier this year and other possible sanctions include suspension of certain operations, delisting or withdrawal of Didi’s US shares.
    On Wall Street, US stocks have recovered all of Monday’s steep losses, as strong earnings results outweighed fears about the spread of the Delta variant. All three major indices are now less than 1% away from record highs. Hong Kong stocks snapped a three-day losing streak which had wiped out all of the Hang Seng’s gains for the year.
    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by John Schofield of Tempus Investment and Patrick Bennett from CIBC World Markets. Also with us is Toby Lawson, CEO of Societe Generale India.

    John Schofield, Managing Director of Tempus Investment notes that the underperformance in the Hong Kong stock market is due to the crackdown on technology companies in mainland China, and uncertainty over US-China relations.

    Patrick Bennett, Macro Strategist at CIBC World Markets notes that there are large amounts of liquidity pouring into the global markets and he thinks that interest rates will remain low for some time.

    Hong Kong Financial Secretary Paul Chan announced yesterday a budget to stabilise the economy, containing HK$120bn of counter cyclical measures. But the level of sweeteners at HK$80 billion this year, is 33% lower than last year’s HK$120 billion. The budget deficit is forecast to be a record HK$257.6 billion this year. That’s less than the government’s previous forecast of HK$300bn.

    In a budget of halves, there were several familiar measures, but at half last year’s level. The salaries tax and profits tax waiver for the coming year was halved from HK$20,000 last year to HK$10,000 this year. And the handouts to the needy were also halved, with people getting an extra half a month’s worth of welfare, old-age, and disability allowances, instead of a full month as before. Last year’s cash handout of HK$10,000 was replaced with HK$5,000 worth of electronic spending vouchers.
    Shares in Hong Kong plunged after financial secretary Paul Chan increased stamp duty from 0.1 to 0.13%. It’s the first time stamp duty in the city has been increased for almost 30 years. The Hang Seng Index tumbled 914 points or 3% to end the day at 29,718, its biggest fall in 9 months. Shares of Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing fell as much as 12.3% before later trimming losses to 8.8% but still its biggest drop since 2015.
    On today’s Money Talk, reviewing the 2021-22 budget is personal wealth advisor, Enzio von Pfeil, Kenneth Wong, Tax Partner at PwC Hong Kong and Samuel Faveur, Chief Executive Officer of Mandarin Capital.

    Personal Wealth Advisor, Enzio von Pfeil, thinks that the measures contained in Hong Kong’s 2021-22 budget are "band-aids" but not a real cure for an economy affected by the pandemic.


    Samuel Faveur Chief Executive Officer at Mandarin Capital laments that the budget is not efficient enough as the measures introduced lean towards corporates and is rather weak on the social aspect.


    Kenneth Wong, Tax Partner at PwC Hong Kong thinks that the new unemployment loan scheme is unlikely to work and believes that more follow up plans and execution detail will be needed.
