CENTRAL, Hong Kong - April 13, 2021 - PRLog -- It was an expected lull as investors are looking forward to more action this week such as the fine printing of price inflation index for consumers which is due on Tuesday, and the release of major bank earnings this week later on.

The Commerce Department expected that the consumer price index will rise by more or less 2% on a year to year basis as consumer products started gaining price above the pandemic levels. On the other hand, banks are sure to be the first ones to reflect a rise in profits as a sign of the recovery of the economy.
