Market Insights Podcast (Episode 315)

Jonny Hart speaks to APAC Senior Market Analyst Jeffrey Halley about news impacting the market and the week ahead.

In this episode, mainland China is on holiday today, muting activity across Asia. However, audit news from China at the weekend has lifted Hong Kong tech stocks. We look at that and other markets across Asia. We then discuss the rise in oil prices today as Europe threatens to tighten sanctions. We then cast our eye over Friday’s US employment data and some big moves in the US yield curve. Circling back to China, we ponder China’s Covid-zero risks as Shanghai enters a full lockdown. Finally, the podcast ends with a look at the data calendar this week, including tomorrow’s RBA policy decision.
