Richard Jerram, chief economist at Bank of Singapore, said while the Fed would not be panicked by the increase in wages "evidence that tight capacity conditions-such as a low unemployment rate-are pushing prices higher will keep them on the current tightening path".
Xu further added, "The trade war's impact on the economy is showing. The RRR cut will help but the China economy will need more monetary policy persuasion to snap its current funk".
