December 19th, 2014 by James

On Friday, Asian shares enjoyed their best day in 15 months after Wall Street enjoyed its biggest two-day advance since late 2011 amid relief that the U.S. Federal Reserve was in no hurry to withdraw stimulus from the U.S. economy.

These gains came as Oil prices stayed under pressure to suggest that equity investors were starting to see the positives in reduced fuel costs and increased consumer spending power.

Australia’s main index romped ahead by 2.2 percent and Japan’s Nikkei JNIc1 climbed 2.1 percent to erase most of its recent losses. Shares in Shanghai hit their highest in four years while MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS put on 1.5 percent. “Risk sentiment is ending the week on a stronger footing after a poor start,” said analysts at Barclays. “Market expectations for ECB QE add to the Fed’s upbeat message on U.S. growth and stabilization in Russia.”

The Dow .DJI surged 2.43 percent, while the S&P 500 .SPX gained 2.4 percent and the Nasdaq .IXIC 2.24 percent.

The US dollar regained ground on the yen to 119.24 and the euro resumed its decline against the U.S. dollar, dropping to $1.227. After a wild week, oil prices managed to steady for the moment. Brent LCOc1 inched up 11 cents to $59.38 after it lost over a $1.00 on Thursday, while U.S. crude CLc1 added 21 cents to $54.32.

Higher Global Growth Predicted By IMF

January 22nd, 2014 by James

The International Monetary Fund is expecting global growth to pick up this year. The global lender however remarked that deflation is a “rising risk” as long as economic growth stays below what policy-makers believe is optimal.

Concerns were expressed by IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde about price growth remaining below the target of many central banks that may hurt the nascent recovery.

“If inflation is the genie, then deflation is the ogre that must be fought decisively,” Lagarde said at the National Press Club in Washington.

Lagarde also added that central banks should be careful in withdrawing monetary stimulus, only once the economy is clearly on a firm footing. Last month, the US Federal Reserve decided to trim its monthly bond purchases to $75 billion from $85 billion and two of the U.S. central bank’s most hawkish policymakers said that it should bring its bond-buying program to a swift close. The so-called “taper” of the Fed’s bond buying was not expected to roil markets as long as it was gradual, Lagarde said. “We don’t anticipate massive, heavy and serious consequences,” she said.

Lagarde however remarked that more rapid adjustments may cause sharp market gyrations and volatile capital flows that would hit some emerging markets in particular. “Overall, the direction is positive, but global growth is still too low, too fragile, and too uneven,” she said.

BOJ Set To Refrain From Easing

March 12th, 2012 by James

On Tuesday, the Bank of Japan is expected to refrain from easing monetary policy further while stressing out its readiness to act again in the next few months, if required, and extending a cheap loan line supporting growth industries.

BOJ Set To Refrain From Easing

“Having just eased last month, it would be hard to justify moving again. We expect the BOJ to ease again when the U.S. Federal Reserve boosts monetary stimulus,” said Hiroshi Shiraishi, an economist at BNP Paribas in Tokyo.

Sources familiar with the central bank’s thinking say said the Bank of Japan is of the view that it has done enough for now with the yen well off record highs, stocks up, and euro zone debt jitters receding.

Federal Reserve Expected To Take New Action

September 22nd, 2011 by James

Federal Reserve Expected To Take New Action

The U.S. Federal Reserve, which is running out of options, is now thinking to give a boost to the country’s economy and reduce unemployment.

The Fed is now expected to announce money shifting in its $1.7 trillion portfolio out of short-term securities and into longer-term holdings.

From news.yahoo.com:

Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke is expected to advocate the move despite criticism from within the Fed and from Republican lawmakers and presidential candidates.

On Monday, the four highest-ranking Republicans in Congress sent Bernanke a letter cautioning the Fed against taking further steps to lower interest rates. Their letter suggested that lower rates could escalate the risk of high inflation.

The plan the Fed is considered most likely to unveil Wednesday has been dubbed “Operation Twist” and dates to the early 1960s. The Fed used a similar program then to “twist” long-term rates lower relative to short-term rates.

Most economists now say the odds of another recession are about one in three.

USD may weaken as Federal Reserve meeting looms

August 8th, 2011 by James

USD may weaken as Federal Reserve meeting loomsThe United States dollar is expected to fall next week, especially against the Japanese Yen (JPY) and Swiss Franc (CHF) as investors are looking to a Federal Reserve meeting that may offer hints of further easing as worries about the global economy grow.

Stocks sold off and safe-haven assets soared this week after weak data fueled fears that the world economy is slipping back into a recession.

From Reuters.com:

The Swiss franc climbed to record highs against the dollar and euro on Friday, before easing back. The dollar last traded up 0.2 percent at 0.7665 franc, while the euro rose 1.5 percent at 1.0960 francs.

For the week, the dollar lost about 3.0 percent against the Swiss currency and the euro dropped 3.7 percent.

Against the yen, the dollar was last at 78.49, down 0.7 percent on the day, but rose 1.2 percent on the week after Japan intervened and eased monetary policy to weaken the yen.

Sharp moves in financial markets and the spike in volatility prompted aggressive policy actions by several major central banks in recent days, including a surprise interest rate cut by Switzerland, yen-selling intervention by Japan, and a resumption of bond buying by the European Central Bank.

“With markets already on the defensive and the macroeconomic picture deteriorating, (Fed Chairman Ben) Bernanke cannot afford to be tight-lipped about further quantitative easing,” said Ashraf Laidi, CEO of Intermarket Strategy Ltd. in London.
