China s economy is likely to improve from consumption and industrial sector. Liquidity keep increasing around the globe While global economy is projected to continue its expansion this year, major central banks including ECB, BOJ, and PBOC have been injecting money supply into the financial system; therefore, that total asset size of global central banks reaches the historical high level. On the other hand, Fed began to gradually unwind its balance sheet. Inflation in several countries including Europe and Japan remains below the target. Therefore, the policy rates in those countries are likely to stay at low or below-zero level in some countries.

US debt ceiling would have impact on the economy US Congress is considering the agreement on short-term spending bill and debt ceiling since the current deal will be expired on January 19, If the Congress cannot come up with a clear agreement on debt ceiling, it will affect government s spending plan and tax-reform bill which is supposed to widen budget deficit by huge amount. Eventually, this unsolved problem will disrupt the economic growth. Monetary policy under new Fed chairman The current chair of Federal Reserve, Fed chairman, will be succeeded since the current term will be ended in February, Jerome Powell will be the next chairman.
