    Trade war could force heavier hand from China on yuan

    China's central bank may have to decide soon whether to intervene more forcefully to support the wobbling yuan currency as the United States readies more sweeping tariffs on Chinese goods. After tinkering around the edges while the yuan fell for four straight months, the People's Bank of China (PBOC) recently signalled it was not comfortable with further losses and managed to steady the currency before it tested the sensitive 7-per-dollar level. President Donald Trump's administration could slap tariffs on another $200 billion of Chinese imports as early as this week, the latest punitive measures aimed at forcing Beijing to improve market access, cut industrial subsidies and slash its huge trade surplus with the United States.

    At least a dozen banks, fintechs and telecom firms are lining up to get a piece of Hong Kong's retail and small business banking market as the regulator prepares to award the former British colony's first online-only banking licenses. Bidders hoping to challenge the dominance of HSBC (HSBA.L) and its local rivals, Bank of China (Hong Kong) (2388.HK) and Standard Chartered (STAN.L), include China's Ant Financial, Tencent , and Ping An Insurance , several people familiar with the process said. StanChart on Thursday said it had set up a new entity for digital banking and had submitted an application for a license.

    Trade tensions cast shadow even as China's big banks bag more profits

    Agricultural Bank of China (AgBank) (1288.HK), the country's third-largest lender, expects its asset quality to stabilise in the second half, but said it had increased provisions as trade tensions threaten the global economy. The comments come after the United Stated and China last week activated another round of duelling tariffs on $16 billion (12.41 billion pounds) worth of each country's goods. Economists reckon that every $100 billion of imports hit by tariffs would cut global trade by around 0.5 percent and impact China's economic growth in 2018 by 0.1 to 0.3 percentage points.

    Yuan hits four-week high as China signals support, revives X-factor for fixing

    China's yuan finished Monday afternoon trade at a near 4-week high to the dollar after the central bank revived a "counter-cyclical factor" in its daily fixing to support the currency, halting a record 10-week slide that rattled global markets and irritated Washington. The announcement was seen as the latest signal from the People's Bank of China (PBOC) that is not comfortable with further depreciation in the yuan which could spark capital outflows from the cooling economy. The move late on Friday came a day after the latest Sino-U.S. talks aimed at resolving the trade dispute ended with little progress, with tougher U.S. measures expected to kick in next month that could add more pressure on the Chinese currency.

    China central bank bars some offshore lending in latest move to support yuan

    China has banned banks in its ground-breaking free trade zones from certain lending activities to ease pressure on the yuan currency in offshore markets, two sources with direct knowledge of the matter said on Thursday. The move comes as nervous global financial markets wait to see how much further China will allow the yuan to fall, after it weakened against the dollar for nine straight weeks, reviving memories of its jolting devaluation in 2015. The restrictions, announced by the Shanghai branch of the People's Bank of China (PBOC) on Thursday morning, have closed off channels used to deposit and lend yuan offshore through the trade zones as the currency plumbs 15-month lows, the sources said.

    China needs better policy coordination to spur lending-PBOC adviser

    China should better coordinate its economic policies and regulations to boost lending to small firms, a central bank adviser said in remarks published on Tuesday, as the government seeks to prop up growth amid rising trade tensions. "The main focus will be on strengthening the overall coordination of policies," Ma Jun, a policy adviser to the People's Bank of China (PBOC), told a financial news outlet affiliated with Xinhua News Agency. The cabinet's Financial Stability and Development Commission (FSDC), which is headed by Vice Premier Liu He, should coordinate fiscal, monetary policies, Macro Prudential Assessment(MPA) and micro-level regulations, Ma said.

    Exclusive: China eyes infrastructure boost to cushion growth as trade war escalates - sources

    China plans to put more money into infrastructure projects and ease borrowing curbs on local governments to help soften the blow to the economy from the Sino-U.S. trade war, policy sources told Reuters. China's trade war with the United States has clouded the outlook for the world's second-largest economy and roiled financial markets. A 4 trillion yuan ($590 billion) spending package in 2008-09 shielded China's economy from the global crisis but saddled local governments and state firms with piles of debt.

    China boosts liquidity, set for more policy easing as trade war threatens economy

    Chinese policymakers are pumping more liquidity into the financial system and channelling credit to small and medium-sized firms, and Beijing looks set to further loosen monetary conditions to mitigate threats to growth from a heated Sino-U.S. trade war. The world's second-biggest economy has already started to lose momentum this year as a government campaign to reduce a dangerous build-up of debt has lifted borrowing costs, hitting factory output, business investment and the property sector. On Wednesday, a source with direct knowledge of the matter said the People's Bank of China (PBOC) plans to introduce incentives that will boost the liquidity of commercial banks.

    China's central bank unexpectedly holds fire on rates as economy wobbles

    China's central bank left borrowing costs for interbank loans unchanged on Thursday, a surprising decision that shrugged off the U.S. Federal Reserve's policy rate increase and came as data showed the world's second-biggest economy lost more steam than expected. The People's Bank of China's (PBOC) on-hold stance highlighted uncertainty about the economic outlook as policy makers try to steer through the challenge of a trade spat with the United States and a government-led clampdown on debt. U.S. President Donald Trump is set to meet with his top trade advisers on Thursday to decide whether to activate threatened tariffs on billions of dollars in Chinese goods.
