1.Hcoin Has Been Listed for One Week with a Pleasing Rise

On Monday, Himalayan Coin— HCoin (HCN) was officially listed and broke through $10 from $1 in less than 48 hours of listing. As of Friday night in the US East, the price of HCN hovered around $18 to $20. Between the majority of warriors have a preferred purchase price of 1HCN = 0.1USD, which means the price of warriors’ HCoin assets has risen nearly 200 times in less than five days (if you haven’t sold out :P). As Mr. Miles Guo said, HCoin can’t go down below $1 or even $10. At the same time, as a newborn in the digital currency world, HCoin’s value can be said to have a great future. It is foreseeable that HPay will be listed shortly, and the powerful chemistry generated by the two may push HCoin to a new level.

Note: The prediction part only represents my personal opinion. Investment still needs to be cautious; the views are for reference only.

3.Mortgage Lending Speeds up in Some Parts of China as the Communist Party Frequently Signals an Improved Real Estate Credit Environment

Recently, mortgage lending has picked up in some parts of the country, but lines remain tight in most areas. In recent times, regulators have frequently released signals of an improving real estate credit environment. In the current month, real estate credit data has improved. Some executives of listed banks also revealed that the pace of individual mortgage issuance should be accelerated. Among them, executives of a listed bank in Zhejiang told that its real estate development loans and personal mortgage loans had been fine-tuned. If the bank-wide quota is not enough, they can also apply for a percentage from the regulation.

However, combined with the bank sources in Shanghai, Guangzhou, Nanjing, Wuhan, and other places to see, most of the city mortgage quota is still tight, the lending cycle and the same as before, about 4 to 6 months. In addition, interest rates have also loosened, with mortgage rates falling for the first time in October from a year earlier. Shell Research Institute reported that in October, the average interest rates for first and second mortgage loans in 90 cities were 5.73% and 5.99%, respectively, both down one basis point from a year earlier. Since this year, individual real estate companies have experienced credit risks. Financial institutions have been cautious about lending to the real estate industry, which inevitably leads to overreaction to real estate loans. However, in recent times, financial management has been corrected promptly. Since September, the monetary authorities have repeatedly stressed the need to meet the reasonable capital needs of the real estate market.

At the end of September, the People’s Bank of China and the CBRC jointly held a symposium on real estate finance, instructing central banks to grasp accurately and implement an excellent prudent management system for real estate finance, maintain a stable and orderly input of real estate credit, and maintain the stable and healthy development of the real estate market. For the first three-quarters of the real estate loan growth rate slowed down significantly. In other situations, the People’s Bank of China Financial Markets Division Director Zou Lan said on October 15, on the one hand, due to the recent exposure of individual sizeable real estate enterprises, financial institutions risk appetite for the real estate industry fell significantly, there is a consistent contraction behavior; on the other hand, some financial institutions on the “three lines of four files, On the other hand, some financial institutions have some misunderstanding of the “three lines and four files” financing management rules, so that the loan should reasonably support the original project, but also to a certain extent caused some real estate enterprises capital chain tightness.

Comment: while lending and collecting taxes, this communist sickle is on two sides of the open edge. At the same time, no lending, no one can afford to buy a house, real estate dead; lending, the future alarming debt rate infinitely higher, financial institutions dead. This forced to choose one or the other to kill the problem of the Chinese Communist Party is challenging to do ah.
