- Asian shares are mixed and ending the week fairly calmly following a turbulent few sessions, and ahead of a data dump by China on Sunday and a Fed rate decision later next week.
- Asset manager Kathy Lien believes it will be difficult for the Fed to act.
- "Based on the performance of the U.S. economy alone, the Fed should raise rates but they do not operate in a vacuum," Lien says.
- Japan -0.2%, Hong Kong flat, China -0.4%, India +0.3%.

- A slump in emerging market confidence has led to $1T in capital outflows over the past 13 months, roughly double the amount that fled during the financial crisis.
- The sustained exodus of capital highlights concerns that developing economies, suffering slowing growth and weakening currencies, are relinquishing their longstanding role as locomotives to become a drag on demand instead.

- Asian shares are mixed following weak U.S. industrial-production and consumer-confidence data on Friday, adding to fears that the economy is stuck in a bit of a rut.
- Still, that's prompting speculation that the Fed will delay raising rates.
- "The size of the decline in consumer confidence is pushing back estimates for a U.S. interest-rate hike to December," says equity strategist Shoji Hirakawa. "That’s beneficial for stock valuations."
- Japanese shares end +0.8%, boosted by banks on positive dividend news.
- Elsewhere, Hong Kong -1.1% after a strong session on Friday, China -0.2% and India +0.5%.

- Asian shares trade mixed, with Hong Kong stocks again surging as investors look to exploit the cheap prices of Chinese firms listed in the city compared with mainland stocks following an easing of the limits on investment flows between the markets.
- The Hang Seng jumped as much as 6.4% before closing +2.8%, although Chinese trading wasn't as exuberant and the Shanghai Composite fell 0.9%.
- In Japan, the Nikkei added to yesterday's gains and rose 0.8% to another 15-year high of 19,938 as it closed in on 20,000, which the index hasn't hit since April 2000.
- "The mood is helped by the fact that foreign investors are coming back to the Japanese market after they turned sellers early this year," says technical analyst Hiker Sator.
- Elsewhere, India +0.3%, Australia -0.5%, Singapore -0.2%.

- Asian shares mainly fall following significant volatility last week and after U.S. stocks tumbled on Friday, and despite strong Chinese export data.
- "China data today came out better than expected but there's too much negativity outweighing it," says strategist Ryan Huang. "Investors are going to look for more positive indicators before we get any traction."
- Probably not helping are Stanley Fischer's weekend comments that he expects "further bouts of volatility" as markets come to grips with the idea of the Fed's first rate hike since 2006.
- Japan closed. Hong Kong +0.6%. China -0.4%, India -0.15%.

- Cnooc (CEO), the operator of the oil rig in disputed waters that’s stoking tension between Vietnam and China, says it is determined to finish drilling at the site.
- Drilling in the South China sea is a business decision, Chairman Wang Yilin said at Cnooc's annual shareholder meeting, but he expects the operation there to be protected by the Chinese government.
- The U.S. military commander in the Pacific is warning that the risk of a miscalculation that could trigger a wider conflict is high.

- The Bank of Japan's Tankan survey of large-manufacturing sentiment increased for the fifth consecutive time, edging up to a seven-year high of 17 in Q1 from 16 in Q4 but slightly missing consensus of 18.
- The non-manufacturing index rose to 24 from 20, as expected.
- However, with sales tax increasing to 8% today from 5%, the manufacturing outlook print slumped to 8 from 14 and the non-manufacturing outlook dropped to 13 from 17. Both figures were worse than expected.
- In addition, big companies expect to increase capital spending by just 0.1% this fiscal year, which starts today, way below a previous reading of 3.9%.
- "There isn't much reason for companies to be optimistic," says economist Shinichiro Kobayashi. "The sales-tax hike is going to drag on the economy, and exports have been weaker than expected on the back of a slow global recovery." (PR)
- Meanwhile, Japanese shoppers went on a spending binge to stock up ahead of the tax hike.
- The Nikkei closed -0.2%, while the USD-JPY is +0.1% at ¥103.29.

- Japanese shares are in recovery mode today after sharp falls last week, with the Nikkei rising 2.2% following a strong close on Wall Street and the absence of fresh negative catalysts.
- China is up 0.1% even though the central bank has again refrained from adding liquidity to the money markets, with the seven-day repurchase rate up 5 bps to 4.93%. Brokers apparently believe that the PBOC's strategy is a sign of economic strength rather than of weakness in the financial industry.
