Capital Market Trend For 2023 After Reopening

3 March 2023 (Friday)

Date: 3 March (Friday)
Time: 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm
Venue: Online via Zoom
Language: English
Outline: 2023 is a year when the HK and A share markets are at the crossroads. Last year when we had this webinar, Shanghai was under lockdown. Three years had gone and we are finally at the end of the Covid tunnel. On one hand, we see that the pandemic and regulatory uncertainties are tapering off, on the other hand, the tension between the US and China is escalating. Coincidentally, this year is also the third year in the US Presidential Election cycle, with the Fed becoming less hawkish. So what to expect in the market after reopening?
