  • Greenback To Yen At Highest Level In Six Months 0 comments
    Nov 25, 2013 5:31 AM

    The greenback rose against Japanese Yen to 101.91 yen on Monday, its highest level in six months. The yen is one of this year's worst performing currencies against the dollar, with its year-to-date losses at about 18 percent. That's just after the Indonesian rupiah, which has slid just over 20 percent against the greenback.

    Asian shares: Japan's Nikkei 1.54%, Hong Kong's Hang Seng -0.05%, Korea's Kospi 0.49 %, Australia's ASX 200 0.30% and China's Shanghai -0.47%.

    ECB's Noyer says EZ has low inflation not deflation. ECB does not want overall inflation to become so low it turns into deflation. We see risks that low inflation could remain for some time. if inflation moves into negative territory in sustained fashion it would be "extraordinary difficult situation". When conventional monetary policy does not have traction we have to invent means to achieve price stability.

    ECB Coeure: Low inflation means the European Central Bank plans to keep interest rates at current low levels or may even cut them further.

    ECB Asmussen: ECB, which cut interest rates to a record low earlier this month, was ready to take further action if necessary and instruments at its disposal included negative deposit rates.

    Currency speculators have ramped up bets on the dollar strengthening against other currencies to their highest level in two months, the latest sign of bullish sentiment towards the U.S. currency making a comeback. The value of the dollar's net long position rose to $17.10 billion in the week ending November 19, up from $14.46 billion the previous week and the highest since the week ending September 10, data released from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission late on Friday showed. Speculators hold the largest amount of long-dollar, short- yen positions in six years. Expectations for an unwinding of U.S. monetary stimulus in the next few months have renewed interest in the dollar after the currency fell in October. And the dollar's firm break above 100 yen last week has encouraged dollar bulls.

    BOJ's Kuroda: Expects inflation target of 2% could be reached in late fiscal 2014 or early 2015. Has expressed willingness to adjust QE as necessary, if necessary, up or down depending on risks. We don't know exact impact implication on negative short term interest rates on economy and markets. Negative interest rates may have been possible, experimented with in some nations in the past, but that's only to a small extent and for quite a short time.

    Swiss voters reject proposal to limit executives' pay.

    AUDUSD posting new session lows of 0.9122, not seen since first week of September.

    Global monetary authorities' enduring interest in the Aussie dollar is hindering efforts by Australia's central bank to curb the currency's strength. Westpac Banking Corp., the country's second -biggest bond underwriter, said the number of central banks it interacts with has tripled to about 60 over the past three years. Central banks bought more than a quarter of the 2033 Australian Commonwealth government bonds offered in a record sale last week, the country's funding arm said.
