2. The Financial Secretary of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, Chen Maobo, stated that there has been a change in the consumption habits of mainland tourists, with the proportion of shopping as the main purpose of coming to Hong Kong decreasing compared to before the epidemic. In the short term, the Hong Kong government needs to work together with the industry to revitalize and prosper the night market in Hong Kong, better consolidate various economic links in the recovery, and maintain the momentum of the recovery. In the medium to long term, we need to make the development of Chuangke one of the important engines for promoting high-quality development of Hong Kong's economy.

3. Yonhap: The budget expenditure of the South Korean government for the 2024 fiscal year may be set between 658 trillion and 663 trillion won, a year-on-year increase of 3%, lower than the 5.1% increase in the 2023 budget, and a decrease of approximately 10 trillion won from the previously planned 670 trillion won. The South Korean Ministry of Finance stated that the reduction in budget expenditure growth rate is due to a decrease in taxes.

4. US Department of Agriculture: As a major food producing region, the widespread drought in the Midwest region of the United States has raised widespread concerns. Grain crops such as corn and soybeans may experience significant yield reductions.

3. CITIC Construction Investment: In July, lower than expected social finance data reflected insufficient market confidence in economic recovery. With the intensive introduction of policies, it is expected that the market's support for economic recovery will continue to strengthen in the second half of the year. In terms of credit, as most of the public loan reserve projects such as infrastructure are depleted in the first half of the year, the downstream credit demand of the industrial chain can drive the increase in credit investment. The issuance of government bonds in the third quarter will significantly accelerate, laying the foundation for the improvement of social finance data.

China Fund News: Since the beginning of this year, the scale of the CSI 1000 index increase fund has increased by 91% compared to the end of last year to 26.2 billion yuan, surpassing the Shanghai Shenzhen 300 enhancement and CSI 500 enhancement products during the same period in terms of excess returns. Due to the market style leaning towards small ticket sizes, the CSI 1000, as a representative index of small cap stocks, can outperform several other large cap and mid cap indices.

4. China Securities News: Since August, there has been a short-term weakness in the steel market.

6. Guangzhou Daily: In the first half of the year, common Chinese medicinal herbs such as Angelica sinensis, Codonopsis pilosula, and Peony bark experienced significant price increases.

Some patients who have been taking traditional Chinese medicine for a long time have stated that the price of a single dose of nourishing traditional Chinese medicine has increased from 60 yuan in the past to 100 yuan. Experts suggest establishing a nationally coordinated strategic reserve of traditional Chinese medicine to suppress price fluctuations.

·Is energy inflation making a comeback·

Futures Daily: Against the backdrop of tight global supply, the weekly oil prices in Europe and America have seen seven consecutive highs. As the world's largest importer of crude oil, China's SC crude oil has closed for nine consecutive days against the backdrop of a weakening RMB exchange rate, continuing to hit the New Year's high oil price. With the rapid reduction of INE crude oil futures inventory warehouse receipts in recent times, contracts in recent months have shown a strong pull up, further highlighting the tight supply situation in the crude oil market. OPEC+, led by Saudi Arabia and Russia, took the initiative on the supply side and successfully lifted oil prices out of the crisis in June. After a month and a half of continuous rebound, oil prices have once again returned to the high point region of the year. As oil prices recover, major institutions are gradually increasing their outlook on oil prices.

► International Energy Agency: On the demand side, the average global crude oil demand reached a record level in June, with daily usage reaching 103 million barrels for the first time. It is expected to further increase in August. As for the reasons behind the increase in demand, analysis shows that driven by strong summer air travel, increased oil consumption for power generation, and increased crude oil chemical activities in China, crude oil demand is reaching a historic high. On the supply side, due to the impact of supply cuts by Saudi Arabia and Russia, global crude oil inventories may significantly decrease for the rest of this year, leading to a rise in oil prices. If OPEC+insists on reducing production, oil prices may continue to rise. Despite soaring interest rates and tightening bank credit, the global economic outlook remains challenging.

► Minsheng Securities: OPEC+has a strong overall willingness to support oil prices, and the expected rebound in supply and demand is expected to drive high oil prices. The number of shale oil drilling rigs in the United States continues to decline, so the core issue of increasing production has not yet been resolved. In addition, due to the voting strikes of Australian workers on the North West Shelf, Whatstone, and Gorgon LNG projects, concerns about European natural gas supply have increased in the near winter market. Coupled with Norway's seasonal maintenance from August to September, the release of favorable factors has led to a significant increase in Dutch TTF natural gas futures prices. With the recovery of winter natural gas demand, oil and gas prices are also expected to support each other.

Industrial Securities: Although the US inflation in July was lower than expected, the stickiness of super core inflation points towards the hawkish Fed. The lag in the rise of retail oil prices has led to lower than expected overall inflation in July. Crude oil prices have also continued to rise since July, and the upward pressure on CPI from oil prices may become more pronounced after August, with a risk of transmission to core inflation. The Federal Reserve's focus on super core inflation rebounded in July, which is consistent with the resilience of labor market wages. This year, wage growth in the Eurozone has accelerated, slowing down the pace of core inflation and currently facing the risk of a new round of energy inflation. The market expects to stop raising interest rates in September, but under inflationary pressure, the hawkish risks of the Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank exceeding expectations cannot be underestimated.
