The global shock from COVID-19 is expected to remain the dominant market theme and the resulting economic weakness is unlikely to end soon. Key global central banks will continue to rollout supportive measures to calm the market which has so far included policy rate cuts, various liquidity supporting tools and asset buying programmes. Financial markets are expected to gradually improve in terms of liquidity although the recovery in asset prices will likely be more gradual. China, which has not experienced a liquidity crunch, has so far performed relatively better than other global markets. China’s onshore liquidity conditions are expected to remain stable and relatively loose. With the prevalence of much weaker macroeconomic data, further monetary easing in China’s policy rate is likely going forward. The reduction in the US Federal Reserve Board’s policy rate has also provided ample room for China to ease its policy rates and there is less concern on US dollar-Chinese yuan foreign exchange stability from an interest rate differential perspective. Therefore, we expect monetary policy will remain favourable for fixed income investors including those invested in government-related and the highest quality corporate sectors. The renminbi is expected to remain range-bound with the market expecting stability against major currency pairs for now.
