Monthly Fund Manager's Commentary
Although the Hang Seng Index rose by some 2% in April or fund had to give back a considerable part of its gains of the first quarter. Growing tensions in Korea, the outbreak of bird flu in China and the crash of the gold market made investors more risk adverse. In April trading volume has dropped significantly to HKD 58bn daily from HKD 72bn in March. Short selling on the other hand increased from 10.2% of turnover to 10.4%. Not all has been bleak, however. The plunge of the gold price has caused a rush of consumers into local jewelry shops to purchase gold bars, causing a shortage of stock within just a few days. Strong visitor numbers from mainland China boosted Hong Kong retail sales. They have grown by 15.5% in real terms during the first two months of the year. Hong Kongs CPI was up 3.6% YoY in March, a small slowdown from 3.7% in February. The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate increased from 3.4% in February to 3.5% in March. External trade has been strong in March. 11.2% increase in exports and 11.3% in imports have contributed to growth of 4.0% and 4.9% respectively in the first quarter of 2013.
