EBÈNE, MAURITIUS--(Marketwire - Aug. 14, 2012) - In his Market Brief of the Week, leading global foreign exchange trader, educator and author Mario Sant Singh, cites moderation of China growth for potential easing of the Reserve Bank of Australia interest rate.
In his Market Brief of The Week he says that weak raw materials prices, a declining China Consumer Price Index and China Trade Balance signal weaker demand, indicating support for more monetary easing measures to avoid further jobs market deterioration in Australia.
Last week, he indicated that upbeat US jobs data was lifting investor confidence in the context of continuing caution there after US Non-Farm Payrolls expanded, but cited unclear moves by the European Central Bank (ECB) and International Monetary Fund (IMF) on policy efforts to support the Greek economy so it can comply with bailout terms.
Said Mario, "All eyes are on China's soft growth rate and a possible ECB bond purchasing programme. The IMF indicated last month that the downside risk for China is huge because the economy is over-reliant on investment. And, while the country wants to improve domestic consumption, high property prices are now a major threat to consumption stimulus.
"Major questions are also being asked, on whether the European Central Bank (ECB) is going to launch a bond purchasing programme in the next couple of weeks. Will this ease the Euro Zone's turmoil, or put Mario Draghi in a troubled position?" he asks.
