FED Vs CHINA INFLATION CONTROL???

Firstly, China has used false statistics and internal manipulations of at least some of its data so that it cannot predict well the future course of its economyBASED ON THOSE STATISTICS. It was blessed by western countries big companies know-how and use , and western demands for cheap goods. That world is changing, and mega-debts will crush it as inflation roars back (which always comes back at some point).

The FED, has not been able to control inflation and is usually behind the markets moves in rates. All the justifications and the belief by many that the FED is god almighty, that it s able to control inflation is once again proving to be incorrect. No doubt the FED will attempt to say it will be resolute in handling inflation. WHEN, we have run away inflation that BEGAN with the upward moves in commodities since over a year ago? Also, wage increases (which by the way is an aggregate figure, but most employees do get that rise) are NOT the problem that economists and Bankers think it is.

MISSED ARE THE PRIMARY CAUSES and too heavy a focus on microscopic analysis and the unconscious  assumptions that all companies are running with good house keeping, which for many, IS NOT the case.

AS IN PAST BOOMS AND BUSTS PROFESSIONALS WILL FIGURE FIGURE WHAT WENT WRONG AND WHAT THEY THINK WERE THE PROBLEMS. They currently think badly run companies which crash financially should be subsided one way or another and saved --  lame ducks sucking resources and getting rewarded for their wrong actions, WHILST those who were not the cause nor responsible will be indirectly footed the bill (via government subsidies, hence the public having to pay it via tax rises down the road)..

WITH HINDSIGHT ALL CAN SAY "WE SHOULD HAVE DONE XYZ" BUT CAN THEY FIND THE CORRECT WHY NOW FOR THE ACTUAL PROBLEM BEFORE, AND SOLVE IT ??? If they can then the PROBLEM WILL SOLVE, AND ONLY THEN.

THAT IS THE BIG IF.

NOTE:

Historically, all civilisations and empires that once existed fell or were destroyed primarily due to huge debts and inflation. Then wars pulled the final curtains. But who understands such vital or its significances in the current scenarios? HISTORY HAS A LOT TO TEACH FOR THOSE WHO CAN HEED PAST MISTAKES.

Same wave-length as me - most people listen to the mouth pieces rather than figuring it all out for themselves and then they wonder why they can't win at trading, Investing etc

    • I don't know but it looks like a really awesome service Because I have come across all sorts of mixers in my work  
    • Charting the Markets: 2 June Indices rally as US agrees debt ceiling bill. EUR/USD, GBP/USD rally while EUR/GBP stabilises as US debt ceiling bill is passed. And WTI recoups recent losses while gold, silver on track for first weekly advance. Axel Rudolph FSTA | Senior Financial Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 02 June 2023               This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • It was a blockbuster number yesterday for the ADP private payrolls, showing 278,000 jobs opened in May, while forecasts had been for 170,000.  Jeremy Naylor | Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 02 June 2023 IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor suggests a similar upside surprise could see almost 300,000 jobs created under the non-farm payroll count with estimates for 190,000 job creations. The unemployment rate is seen rising one notch to 3.5%. (Video Transcript) NPFs: what to expect Could yesterday's strong private payrolls number from the ADP reading give us an insight into the potential upside risk to today's non-farm payrolls? That report from ADP yesterday showed 278,000 jobs opened in May - forecasts had been for 170,000. Now the NFP expectations, 190,000 job creations are forecast for the month of May proportionately using that ADP surprise. That would mean an upside reading for NFPs close to 300,000. Why the increase? Now, the unemployment rate is seen rising one notch to 3.5%. Why is that rising? When you've got that rise in the number of job creations, the unemployment rate is not taking the same data that the jobs numbers themselves are being produced from average hourly earnings. We're looking there for that to go up 0.3% month-on-month, 4.4% year-on-year, still below the rate of inflation. Now, this chart shows the unemployment rate back to pre-Covid-19 levels. It's clear that jobs have been created at an appreciable rate and this alongside a relatively strong GDP number and inflation coming down, there may yet be a soft landing for the US economy. But if the Federal Reserve (Fed) does continue to raise rates, things may get a little bit more sticky for the economy and a little bit more difficult to predict. This is a comparison of fed funds rates and US consumer price inflation (CPI) since January 2021. So you can see here the rate at which the US central bank has been piling the pressure on the monetary markets with that rise to five and a quarter percent. And at the same time, the CPI number is coming down, which is a good thing, but it's still not down to the 2% level, 4.9% is a long way away still from the 2% target. So the Fed is entitled still to have an excuse to raise interest rates. US dollar basket Let's take a look at what's been happening with the US dollar basket. Yesterday, we saw a pullback coming through as we saw money going into risk assets because of that rubber stamping from the Senate or the vote in the Senate to approve the budget that's now gone for the presidential seal. EUR/USD And we've seen a second day in a row of losses or the euro for the dollar basket as far as the euro/dollar is concerned, bouncing away from that 76.4% retracement. And I think now, you will have been stopped out if you were short on this, you would have been stopped out on this and hopefully you would have got some profits on the way down. So that's where things are ahead of non-farm payrolls out today at 13:30 UK time. And we will be live on the IG platform at 13:25 today.
