Today's Focus

This morning on Money For Nothing we will talk about the state of the regional markets with Enzio von Pfeil of MCL Partners. We’ll also take a look at whether the resilience of the U.S. stock market advance is likely to last. Robert Howe of the hedge fund Geomatrix (HK) Ltd. will join us for that. Also, economic indicators in Japan and the U.S. are diverging. What does it mean for the outlook for Japanese equities? Peter Lewis, of Peter Lewis Consulting, will weigh in what he sees as the growing urgency for structural reforms in Japan. (8am-8.30am, facebookor email

On Backchat, we'll talk about the Manila delegation's visit to Hong Kong.  Does the visit resolve the matter? Does it help normalise the relations between China and the Philippines? After 9.15, street singing in Mong Kok . (8.30am-9.30am, call in on 233 88 266, facebook , email , or text 63935925)

Today on Morning Brew, Steve Vines returns for his Thursday dose at 10.10. In the news this week, a civil servant from the Environmental Protection Department has been made to perform a whole, massive 120 hours of community service, after she admitted sharing confidential government information with her boyfriend. Rather unreasonable of them, as it was only marked CONFIDENTIAL and didn't they realise that her boyfriend and his family needed to see this as there's likely a project tender coming up soon. No wonder Snowden fancied Hong Kong so much. Also, a group of banking and finance professionals have placed advertisements in local newspapers, to call on the Central government to respect Hong Kong's autonomy and to push for free elections.They have vowed to join the proposed 'Occupy Central' protests that could shut down traffic in the business district later this year. When questioned, a Government official said, "But, you're...but...but...we've told everyone that bankers...but...Act,no don't act now... (implode)". After 11 a live MB mini-concert from world class clarinettist and composer Derek Bermel, who's here as a featured artist of the "Intimacy Of Creativity" series 2014. He'll be accompanied by pianist Amy Sze. Chris Motion Dynamics Watts joins us at 11 40 today for some anti-aging with Bicarbonate of Soda! After 12, we'll find out all about the 2014 Hong Kong Elephant Parade with artist Diana Francis. Today's programme brought to you by the Dadaist Society of Mong Kok. We'll wrap up at 12.40 with Corporal Hugh Chiverton's look ahead to tomorrow's edition of Back Chat. (9.30am-1pm, facebook or email )
