    Recession worries and declining yields

    10 October 2019

    With the exception of a few cases, asset prices and liquidity conditions have been benign, aided by low rates and ample liquidity.
    But trade and growth momentum have slowed, investment uncertainties loom large, and geopolitical risks (From Brexit to Iran, from China-US to Japan- S Korea) are high.

    26 August 2019

    In our latest video, DBS FX strategist Philip Wee presents a model to estimate the impact of US tariffs on the Chinese yuan.
    Prolonged trade tensions are set to keep the Chinese yuan weak past its psychological 7 level against the USD. Labelling China a currency manipulator and the coming 10% US tariff on the remaining USD300bn of Chinese goods have brought the yuan a step closer to the 8 level. Much depends on whether US President Trump keeps increasing tariffs into next year’s US presidential elections. see more>
