  • The Longest Bearish Streak In 2013 For US Stocks Has Been Broken 0 comments
    Sep 27, 2013 4:51 AM

    Euro trade stable below 1.35 level, tries to stay above 1.3460 key fibo support …

    Asian shares: Japan's Nikkei -0.26%, Hong Kong's Hang Seng 0.70%(07:00 GMT), Korea's Kospi 0.22%, Australia's ASX 200 0.27% and China's Shanghai 0.20%.

    The longest bearish streak in 2013 for US stocks has been broken, with S&P 500 climbing 0.35% and Dow 30 doing marginally better at 0.36%.

    BOE's Carney says he does not see a case for further QE.

    UK house price growth accelerated in September, rising by 0.9% over the month. As a result, the annual rate of house price growth rose to 5%, the strongest pace since July 2010. There are also signs that the pickup is becoming increasingly broad-based. For the first time since 2007, all thirteen UK regions experienced annual house price growth in the third quarter of 2013.

    British consumer confidence rose in September to its highest in almost six years, signaling further strength for one of the economy's main drivers.

    ECB's Constancio says forward guidance must be conditional.

    The U.S. economy expanded at faster pace in the second quarter from the previous three months, a sign the U.S. was weathering federal budget cutbacks and higher taxes. Gross domestic product rose at a 2.5 percent annualized rate, unrevised from the previous estimate, after expanding 1.1 percent in the first quarter

    Fed's George: My overall assessment of the national economy is generally positive as the economy continues to slowly recover. I expect that we will see moderate GDP growth in the second half of this year of about 2 percent. As private demand grows and fiscal drag wanes, growth should pick up over the next year.

    Japan's core consumer prices rose 0.8 percent in August from a year earlier, marking the third straight month of gains and the fastest increase in nearly five years, suggesting steady progress towards ending 15 years of deflation.

    Takeshi Fujimaki, a former adviser to billionaire George Soros and now a member of Japan's upper house of parliament, said a fiscal crisis in Asia's second-biggest economy is inevitable and neither a higher sales tax nor the 2020 Olympics will be able to stop it. "I decided to become a politician because I think financial crisis will come sooner or later," Fujimaki said. "This total debt will continue to increase. I don't think Japan can survive until 2020."… Yields on 10-year Japanese government bonds may jump to 70 percent based on what happened in Russia when it defaulted in 1998, Fujimaki said. The benchmark yield is now the lowest in the world at 0.685 percent and the cost to protect the sovereign debt from default is near a four-month low at 62 basis points. The Bank of Japan is aiming to stoke 2 percent inflation in two years by buying more than 7 trillion yen of JGBs a month. "Because the BOJ is buying huge amounts of JGBs, market principles in this country do not work," .. "Monetary easing is creating a JGB bubble. Sooner or later the market will reflect credit risk." …The IMF estimates Japan's debt will grow to 245 percent of GDP this year.
