  • Returning global demands help support global exports. Asian economies benefit from returning global demands through manufacturing and exports.
  • Inflation on the rise due to energy price. The rising inflation should be transitory. Energy and transportation prices which had low bases last year contributed to higher inflation in the United States.
  • U.S. labor market displayed moderate improvement in May, adding 560,000 jobs. Meanwhile, European retail trade and industrial production increased strongly in April from low base impact.

Financial Market

  • TTBA sees both Thai and US policy rate to hold at least through Q3/2022. Fed tapering is likely to start from Q1/2022. Though, surprisingly high US Inflation (4.2% on April) which followed by 5% on May has slowed down the flattening path of UST curve and put the pressure on DXY index to drop to 5 months lowest level at 89.34 as US markets expects 80% chance of a rate increase from Fed by December 2022. However, we still believe that higher than Fed’s target inflation is one time and will gradually decrease through this year.
  • USDTHB is likely to continue weakening through 2021 as weaker economic recovery than global peers, negative current account, and covid 19 situation.
  • Short term TGB will stick to policy rate at 0.50% at least through Q3/2022. Long term TGB will continue to up, though the process has been slowed down by covid situation.
