Monday News: China Brings Surprises

Monday News: China Brings Surprises

This week’s attention should be given to China, which pops up in some news on several occasions.

A 7% drop in the Chinese tech index hit the region, leaving the Asia-Pacific stock index in the red for the second session. It is also due to the Covid lockdown in Shenzhen, the technology hub, which has increased the geopolitical and regulatory risks facing the sector. It happened partly because of strained relations between the US and China.

XBR fell, staying above $106 a barrel. The resistance is $111.70, the support is $106.10.


The ruble showed a slight strengthening against the US dollar. Now USDRUB is approximately $131.

XAU dropped 0.5% to $1975 an ounce after last week’s peak at $2069.


The key indicator of inflation expectations in the US rose to 3% and approached a record high level.

The Bank of England is expected to raise its rates to 0.75% on Thursday, which will be the third increase in a row.

Key events this week:

The US PPI m/m, March 15, 02:30 PM MT

The UK Official Bank Rate, March 17, 02:00 PM MT

The US Fed Funds Rate, March 16, 08:00 PM MT
