    Japan – Can Olympics save the economy?

    Similar to global markets, the Japanese equity market surged over November in response to vaccine breakthrough and lower uncertainty following the conclusion of the US elections. The Nikkei 225 Index was up by 15.04% (15.45% in USD terms) and the TOPIX Index gained 11.12% (11.51% in USD terms).

    The rally over the month was led by lagging cyclical sectors, which have been underperforming the market since COVID hit. With the vaccine seen as a magical solution to the return to normal, relevant sectors surged given that production and consumption is expected to be on the rise. The vaccines should also provide a better case for holding the delayed Olympic Games in 2021, which could provide the much-needed boost to the struggling economy.

    However, we remain sceptical that the economy will recover to the level that justifies the market rally, as the issues contributing to the weak fundamentals have not dissipated. Moreover, questions remain over the economic benefits holding the Olympic Games, as travel restrictions are not likely to be fully lifted by mid-2021. The vaccines production timeline will likely only meet the world’s population by 2022. With the valuation levels elevated, the upside is relatively limited in the short term, we would still advise against overweighting Japanese equities considering the comparatively larger downside.

    US stocks continued their rebound as the Fed interest rate meeting came in line with market expectations, with the three major indices rallying 2.07% to 2.49% over the past two days ending Thursday. On the economic front, the number of initial jobless claims rose for the second consecutive week, while Markit services and manufacturing activities for September fell to a one-year low due to supply chain issues. The Fed kept interest rates and its QE programme unchanged after the interest rate meeting, but Chairman Jerome Powell said that tapering could start in November this year and continue until mid-2022. The dot plot released after the meeting showed that officials are still divided on interest rate action for next year.

    As the US debt ceiling looms, it was reported that Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has sought help from Wall Street executives to put pressure on Republicans. However, with Republicans opposed to tying the debt ceiling to the stopgap spending bill, House Speaker Pelosi hinted that Democrats would pass the stopgap spending bill without raising the debt ceiling to avoid a shutdown. Next week, the US will release data such as the Conference Board Consumer Confidence Index and the ISM Manufacturing Index.

    euroEurope

    European stocks rebounded after a brief correction, with UK, French, and German equities gaining between 1.23% and 2.01% over the past five days ending Thursday. On the economic front, the preliminary Eurozone manufacturing PMI for September was 58.7, below market expectations of 60.3. Nevertheless, international rating agency S&P raised its forecast for Eurozone economic growth this year from 4.4% to 5.1%. Executive board member of the European Central Bank Isabel Schnabel said the European economic outlook is improving, and the importance of the Pandemic Emergency Purchase Programme (PEPP) has diminished. Next week, the Eurozone will announce the unemployment rate for August and the CPI for September.

    chinaChina

    The market remained focused on the Evergrande incident, with Hong Kong and China markets slid amid volatile market conditions. The CSI 300 Index fell 0.37% for the week, while the Hang Seng Index lost 1.93%. The market was concerned whether Evergrande could pay the interest on its outstanding bonds. During the week, Evergrande indicated that interest payments for its CNY4 billion onshore bonds had been "negotiated off-market", which briefly eased market concerns. However, holders of Evergrande's USD bonds have yet to receive the scheduled interest payments. At the time of writing, Evergrande has yet to make any announcement on the status of the offshore payments. According to the bond terms, Evergrande is not technically in default if it can pay within the 30-day grace period, and the market is keeping a close eye on the latest developments. Next week, China will release official and Caixin manufacturing PMI data.

    Europe - Outlook Remains Positive

    Although outshone by performance of other markets over the month of August, the European market remains on a stable rising path, as the wide range of supportive factors remains in place. Disregarding the resurgent COVID threat in the continent, the European STOXX 600 index managed to gain 1.98% (1.53% in US$ terms).

    The COVID situation varied country by country, where some have seemingly peaked, while others are just starting its rise. If the UK experience has taught us anything, the key to dealing with the pandemic lies within a comprehensive vaccination programme. Although cases could still climb, severe cases and hospitalisations would stay at a lower level, henceforth allowing the economy to remain open and running as usual. The situation in Europe is exactly that, as economic fundamentals reflect that the economy has not suffered significantly despite the resurgence, which is positive for the equity market.

    Even though the Eurozone CPI has slightly overshot forecasts, given the new ECB inflation target, the current level is still within acceptable bounds, and would not warrant an earlier than expected tapering. As ECB President Christine Lagarde has mentioned, ECB is keen on avoiding premature tightening of the policy, which could otherwise result in detrimental impacts on the economy. Markets expect the Bank to keep interest rates unchanged at the current level for an extended period. Henceforth, with the economic growth outlook steady, a possible further boost from the EU Recovery Fund, and ongoing supportive monetary policies, we remain positive on the European equity market.

      China – Be Selective on Equities

      Modest policy direction and continued regulatory actions pressured Chinese equity markets, certain companies were able to mount a comeback, but the overall market remains on the soft end. Over the month of August, the CSI 300 index lost 0.12% (0.10% in US$ terms), the Shanghai Composite was up 4.31% (4.33% in US$ terms), whereas the Hong Kong Hang Seng Index was also down 0.32% (0.38% in US$ terms).

      Economic fundamentals in China further slipped in August, official services PMI even entered the contractionary zone at 47.5, which was the lowest figure since the pandemic trough back in early 2020. The weaker fundamentals could possibly be primarily attributed to two factors, one of which is the resurgence of COVID in the country. The delta variant prompted drastic lockdown measures from the Chinese authorities to limit the spread, the services sector suffered, but the sector outlook is expected to recover as soon as authorities regain control over the epidemic.

      Policy uncertainty is the other likely cause in the weaker economic sentiment. As in the most recent politburo meetings, the idea of ‘shared prosperity’ have been reemphasised. Henceforth, we would stay neutral on the market, although the ongoing policy concerns are unlikely to dissipate in the short to mid-term, it should be balanced by attractive valuations and more stable liquidity conditions in the market. If one were to invest in Chinese equities, investors should stay selective, and focus on segments that are structurally integral for the future transition, such that they will face less policy risk.

      US – Potential Correction Ahead?

      Even though the economy is seemingly slowing down, and the pandemic situation is getting more severe, US equities continue to post strong numbers. With the support of improving corporate earnings and supportive monetary policies, the NASDAQ, S&P 500, and Dow Jones were up by 4.00%, 2.90%, and 1.22% respectively over the month of August.

      Economic indicators in the US continue to show conflicting signals. PMIs were slightly lower than market expectations, but the figures are still well in the expansion zone. However, consumer sentiment fared worse, hitting a near term low; inflation remained at the 10 year high, and employment data also showed dissatisfying figures, with non-farm payrolls seeing the lowest figure in 6 months. The resurgence in the pandemic have impacted business confidence and spilled over to the jobs market, suggesting that the economy might have slowed down.

      Yet, the weaker than expected economy might not be entirely a bad thing for the financial markets. At the Jackson Hole Symposium, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell cited weaker employment conditions as the primary reason for holding off monetary tightening. The Fed was also surprisingly dovish over tapering, only suggesting the possibility before the end of the year, further supporting the market. However, we would highlight the risks, as the weakening economy, and the slow progress towards herd immunity also poses extra downside risk. Looking forward, while we stay positive on the US market, caution is advised, and we continue to prefer growth sectors in the portfolio for mid to long-term investments.

      Retail sales rose unexpectedly MoM, reflecting a healthy consumption market. However, with the US debt ceiling crisis still in play, market sentiment weakened and US stocks softened, with the three major equity indices retreating between 0.37% and 0.44% over the past five days ending Thursday. August retail sales in the US rose 0.7% MoM, versus expectations of a 0.7% contraction, while CPI rose 0.3% MoM, the lowest increase in seven months and also fell below expectations, easing inflationary pressures and calmed market fears of persistently high inflation. 

      The US debt ceiling issue is on the horizon, but Senate Republicans are adamantly opposed to raising the ceiling; Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has reached out to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for support, but has been turned down. J.P. Morgan said a technical default in the US could have a negative impact on the market. It is also reported that US House Democrats are drafting an increase in corporate taxes from 21% to 26.5%, which would be slightly lower than the 28% proposed by Biden earlier this year. Next week, the US Federal Reserve will hold a meeting on interest rates, whether Chairman Powell will announce the launch of the tapering of bond-purchases at the meeting or notwill be the focus of the market

      European stocks have had mixed performance over the past five days ending Thursday. German equities were up 0.27%, French equities were down 0.62%, and UK equities were flat. The UK reported a 3.0% YoY rise in the August Consumer Price Index, the biggest increase in nine years, and the market is concerned about whether there will be any new policy announcements at the next Bank of England interest rate meeting. In addition, there are changes in the UK Cabinet, with Trade Secretary Liz Truss promoted to foreign secretary and Dominic Raab, former foreign secretary, was made justice minister, after drawing criticism over the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan. Next week, the Eurozone will release its manufacturing and services PMI for September, while Germany will release its Septenber Ifo business sentiment index.
