FOMC stands pat on rates and bond buying, vaccines help outlook

The Federal Reserve held interest rates and its monthly bond-buying program steady on Wednesday, nodding to the U.S. economy’s growing strength but giving no sign it was ready to reduce its support for the recovery. In its statement released after a two-day policy meeting the central bank did note progress on vaccines and economic recovery, a slightly less negative view than the Fed’s description in March, when it said the health crisis “poses considerable risks to the economic outlook.”

China factory activity accelerates in April but cost pressures mount – Caixin PMI

China’s factory activity in April expanded at the fastest pace in four months on stronger demand but concerns over surging raw materials and input costs clouded the outlook, according to a private survey released on Friday. The Caixin/Markit Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) rose to 51.9 in April from an 11-month low of 50.6 in March, beating analyst expectations for a smaller uptick to 50.8.

The money will be drawn from 5 trillion yen in coronavirus-related reserve funds that the government has allocated as part of its budget for the current fiscal year.

联邦公开市场委员会(FOMC)维持利率和债券购买,疫苗有助于展望

美联储周三维持利率不变,其每月债券购买计划保持稳定,这是对美国经济增长势头的支持,但没有迹象表明美国准备减少对经济复苏的支持。 在为期两天的政策会议后发布的声明中,央行确实注意到了疫苗和经济复苏方面的进展,其负面观点略低于美联储3月份的描述,当时美联储表示,健康危机“对经济前景构成相当大的风险。 ”

4月中国工厂活动加速,但成本压力增加-Caixin PMI

周五公布的一项私人调查显示,由于需求增加,中国4月份工厂活动以四个月来最快的速度增长,但对原材料和原材料成本上涨的担忧掩盖了前景。 财新/马基特制造业采购经理人指数从3月份的11个月低点50.6升至4月份的51.9,超出了分析师预期的小幅上升至50.8。

日本内阁批准动用46亿美元的储备金,以支持受大流行打击的企业
