Macro Economy
US stock market went strong on Friday, the benchmark stock index set the largest rally from five months; the prior released earnings from Microsoft was better than expected and, Bank of Japan reinforced the monetary stimulatory policy which boosted the market confidence. S&P 500 index increased 46.88 point or 2.48% to 1940.24 point. From data side, US fourth quarter GDP increased 0.7% annualized quarter on quarter, was lower than 2% in third quarter and, was lower than market expected 0.8%. San Francisco Fed president Williams indicated the Fed tightening pace might slow down compare to prior expected. We regard the slows down fourth quarter GDP growth is mostly conforms to its consistently seasonal performance and, the related manufacturing data as PMI, ISM index and value of industrial output which we mentioned previously has already showed sharply slows down. From the future perspective, US economy reviving trend is hard to have plainly growth if only depend on the real estate market; slowly reviving is the most probable situation.
From Europe side, Euro Zone January consumption price increased 0.4% after compromised, set the largest increase since October 2014, which might give a short relief to ECB. But since the high cardinal utility of the second quarter energy price, the inflation index might weaken again, we regard ECB would meet commitment on extending easing. Last Friday Bank of Japan announced would introduce three tiers interest rate system, implement positive interest rate, zero interest rate and negative interest rate on different banking deposits. After Japan introduced implementing negative rate, US and Euro stock market soared on Friday and, Japanese Yen against US dollar set the largest decrease range from one year. Harihiko Koruda indicated implementing negative interest rate was not aim at the exchange rate but to reach the 2% inflation target quickly, and would further lower the negative interest rate if necessary. This unexpected policy might bolster the US dollar index, and trigger the concern on monetary war again. The two perspectives are against with the RMB stabilization, we will continue focusing on it. In addition, National Bureau of Statistics of China will release January manufacturing industry PMI at 9 o’clock intraday morning, expected is 49.6 and is lower than 50 for the sixth straight month; meanwhile Caixin manufacturing industry PMI will be released, expected to lower than 50 for the eleventh straight month. This data need to be focused.

 
Stock Index
Last Friday spots index soared 3%, blue chips all rallied. The reason on rally is because of has over decreased, bearish momentum is thick and need digest; too low is bullish, the potential bailout and other bullish will be imagined by investors. Though the evaluation on CSI 500 was low, facing the banking spreads became effective, intensified competition, potential bad debt was inestimable, and the price would not rally. And overall trading was still at low level, the upward trend hadn’t rallied over five-day moving average system, late market dropped back, the continuously momentum was not huge in the future. From bigger perspective, reform, national team bailout, supply side reform was all not constituted the condition to rally; economy condition was plainly in the downward trend. Securities trading settlement funds dropped over RMB 2 trillion and, three stock market crash, the retail investors thoroughly lost the confidence. Overall, index will still weaken after rally in the future.
