    Will the increase in rate make the PHP appreciate?

    actually i was referring to PH govt bonds

    bond investors will be demanding higher interest from the govt to compensate for higher inflation

    that's why bond prices in the secondary market are falling now

    coz everyone expects new bonds will have higher interest than old bonds

    --

    PH dollar denominated bonds for foreign investors ---

    foreign investors will be demanding higher interest from PH coz benchmark US yields are rising

    naturally as US yields rise, so will yields of other sovereigns

    and foreign bond investors will look at our capacity to pay

    they'll look at our dollar inflow & outflow and they'll see we're currently spending more dollars than we're earning so we're kinda risky so they'll demand higher interest

    --

    re BSP interest rate hike

    they are being pressured to do something coz of rising infaltion

    i understand BSP needs more data before they move

    a lot of people are expecting they'll move on May 10

    yes

    actually PHP is doing quite well these couple of days even as the dollar strengthens

    to me that looks like the market is already expecting a rate hike

    Here's to hoping the inflation is temporary, brought about by the adjustment of the economy to the tax reform. Since the adjustment next year will only be for fuel taxes (no more sugar and coal), hopefull inflation drops back to acceptable levels.

    After all, domestic consumption and OFW/BPO remittances have not yet dropped so fundamentally we're still okay. We really just have to weather this economic storm brought about by TRAIN.

    There is still the threat of removing the PEZA incentive (5% GIT) and replace with 15% regular corporate income tax under TRAIN2. Simulations showed an average of 50% to 250% additional cash outflow. Most expansions are on hold or diverted to Vietnam, Malaysia or India. Dollars are being sent back to HQ, thanks to Trump's tax reforms.
