Investment Idea: Economic Data from China, the US and the Eurozone for the Past 2 Weeks

Loading...
Data cannot be shown.
The Chinese business activity index hasn’t seen a massive improvement in neither the manufacturing nor the service sector. On 28th April it was made common knowledge that the People’s Bank of China is planning a further relaxation of their monetary policy. This will allow Chinese banks to use state bonds from regional government as a kind of guarantee for 3 year loans lent by the central bank at low rates. This should provide for an increase in liquidity and the amount of credit available.
