As we kickoff another week of trading in the month of May, what’s next?

While China has not blatantly turned on the liquidity spigot to the extent that many other central banks have because they want to limit the debt build up as they still absorb the post 2009 accumulation, loan growth in April exceeded expectations. Aggregate financing in April totaled 3.1 Trillion yuan, above the estimate of 2.78 Trillion with bank loans making up 1.7 Trillion of this vs the estimate of 1.3 Trillion. This large number of aggregate financing follows an even bigger one of 5.15 Trillion in March.
