China CPI Data Encouraging, Paves Way for Loosening, Ulrich Says

October 14, 2011

Oct. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Chinese economic data showing inflation easing in September from the previous month was “encouraging,” and gives the government leeway to ease monetary policies, according to JPMorgan Chase & Co.

The government will introduce more policies to boost economic growth as exports slump, Jing Ulrich, Hong Kong-based chairman of global markets for China at JPMorgan, said in a Bloomberg Television interview. The yuan will appreciate a further 2 percent against the U.S. dollar this year and 5 percent next year, she said. Ulrich favors industries such as consumer, telecom, Internet and travel. She said bank and property stocks face continued “downward pressure.”
