9:30 am Outlook: Chinese authorities over the weekend tried to assuage global markets by saying that the stock market correction in China is almost over. But will this act as a balm to the jittery markets is the big question here. Peter Hooper of Deutsche Bank Securities says it will be taken positively.
An optimistic Hooper says the global growth picture has not deteriorated significantly and a September interest rate hike by the US Federal Reserve is still very much on the cards. Though, he adds that a lot now depends on inflation and the volatility in the market.
According to him, the Fed hiking rates will be taken as recognition that the US market is doing well. But the Fed, he adds, will make it very clear that it is not the beginning of an aggressive rate hike cycle and that it will be a slow and gradual process.
