Market wrap/ HK property / View from Singapore
We have everything on today’s show. On the economic front we have minutes from the Fed and ECB rate policy meetings and disappointing economic data out of Japan and Germany. On the corporate front we have takeover activity, bad news from European banks and a lackluster start to US earnings season. In the markets, Chinese shares reopen after the national holidays in buoyant mood and the oil price continues its surge. And there is even political intrigue in the US. We shall try to link together the narrative and make sense of some of the top stories for you. Helping us to do that is Khiem Do of Baring Asset Management and Mitul Kotecha of Barclays in Singapore. And we shall also look at the prospects for Hong Kong property with Christopher Dillon author of the Landed series of real estate books. We welcome your comments and questions.
