Philippine economic growth to lead Asia in 2019: HSBC;
The Philippine economy will continue to grow faster than its Asian peers this year, notwithstanding global and local risks, HSBC said Monday. Inflation is easing and is likely to settle at less than 4 percent at the end of the year, but growth could be affected by possible oil and food price shocks, said Frederic Neumann, HSBC managing director and co-head of Asian economics research. The failure of the US and China to settle their trade spat could deal financial markets with a “confidence shock.” Slowing growth in China, Japan and Europe could weigh on exports, he said. “The Philippines will lead in absolute growth terms,” Neumann told ANC’s Market Edge. Consumption will likely pick up in Indonesia, he said. HSBC – Source.

There’s a lot of concern that the U.S. economy experienced an “inverted yield curve” on Friday. That’s when the interest rate on short-term Treasurys, such as 3-month bills TMUBMUSD03M, -0.12% or 2-year notes TMUBMUSD02Y, +1.26%is higher than on longer-term debt, such as 10-year notes TMUBMUSD10Y, +0.84% or 30-year bonds TMUBMUSD30Y, +0.40% It’s rare for short-term instruments to pay more than long-term ones. Bond buyers usually expect a higher yield when tying up their capital for longer periods. But so many people have been buying up 10-year Treasurys—fearing an economic slowdown—that it drove the yield below that of 3-month T-bills. (Yields fall as bond prices rise.)
