HKMA To Defend Peg Amid Downside Pressures

We continue to expect the Hong Kong Monetary Authority to intervene in the markets to maintain the Hong Kong dollar’s long-standing peg with the US dollar amid downside pressures due to unfavourable real interest rate differentials. The central bank is seeking to engineer an increase in domestic interest rates to stem the outflows, and rising rates are likely to exert downside pressure on the sky-high housing market and pose risks to the city’s elevated private debt levels.
