Investors should remain wary of unverified notes on reopening China: Credit Suisse

A strategist at Credit Suisse said investors need to “be careful” about unverified notes circulating on social media that China may reopen early next year.

“I think that, from different angles with a lot of news flowing – especially the unverified one, we need to be careful,” said Edmund Huang, head of securities research at Credit Suisse.

Speaking at the company’s China investment conference, Huang said the reopening was likely more calculated than surprising.

“It will take some time especially after the party convention and the formation of the new government – which means it will be a more gradual process than overnight, with China fully reopening to the rest of the world,” he said.

Stocks are falling as Powell says the final interest rate will be higher than previously expected

Briefing reporters Wednesday after raising interest rates for the fourth consecutive time, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said the central bank’s ultimate goal of raising interest rates has gone up.

“We still have some ways to go and the data from our last meeting suggests that the final level of interest rates will be higher than previously expected,” he said.

Stocks fell after the comment, indicating that interest rates will continue to rise and likely remain at a higher-than-expected level for longer as the Fed tames inflation. This reversed the gains made earlier in the afternoon when traders digested the Fed’s statement as more dovish and hoped for less rate hikes in the future.
