    Wall Street Edged Up, Boosted by Energy

    U.S. equities closed slightly higher as energy shares counterbalanced losses in financials, while investors looked ahead to the beginning of quarterly corporate earnings season. Geopolitical tensions contributed to the choppy session. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that military strikes against Syria regarding its use of chemical weapons posed as a warning to other nations.

    The Dow Jones industrial average inched up 0.01 percent at 20,658.02, as Caterpillar led gains while Merck was the worst performer. The S&P 500 added 0.07 percent at 2,357.16, with energy leading six sectors up while telecommunications lagged behind. The Nasdaq composite climbed 0.5 percent at 5,8880.93.

    The S&P energy index advanced 0.8 percent to lead gains, as stocks received a lift from oil which increased 1.61 percent to settle at $53.08 per barrel. Energy firms are seen to deliver great strength with a 600 percent year-over-year earnings increase.

    The financial sector fell 0.3 percent. Bank stocks have declined as investors doubt lofty valuations as well as Trump's ability to rapidly introduce simpler regulations and other policies. Citigroup, JPMorgan and Wells Fargo are set to post earnings on Thursday. Investors expect lenders to shed some light on the U.S. banking industry's performance amid a rally in financial shares since the election of U.S. President Donald Trump.

    Wall Street Retreats as Geopolitical Concerns Persist

    U.S. equities dropped as investors remained worried about geopolitical developments, which eventually pushed safe-havens higher. Adding to the sour mood, North Korea state media warned of a nuclear attack on the United States once provoked, as a U.S. Navy strike group moved towards the western Pacific.

    The Dow Jones industrial average slipped 0.03 percent to 20,651, with Apple leading losses while McDonald's was the best performer. The S&P 500 shed 0.14 percent to 2,353, as technology led seven sectors down while real estate was the top gainer. The Nasdaq composite tumbled 0.24 percent to 5,886.

    The CBOE Volatility Index (VIX), considered the best gauge of fear in the market, is up more than seven percent at 15.14. The index has traded over ten percent higher earlier in the session. Investors are counting on strong corporate earnings to help justify pricey valuations.

    The financial sector fell 0.3 percent and the technology dropped 0.4 percent. Among shares active on corporate news, United Continental slipped 1.1 percent following a worldwide backlash against the airline as a passenger was reportedly pulled off of one of its flights. Late in the trading session, its chief executive issued an apology.

    Fxwirepro: Eur/krw Hovers Around Key Resistance at 1,218 Mark, Stay Bullish

    EUR/KRW is currently trading around 1,217 mark.

    Pair made intraday high at 1,218 and low at 1,212 levels.

    Intraday bias remains bullish till the time pair holds key support at 1,208 mark.

    A daily close below 1,212 will drag the parity down towards key supports around 1,208, 1.200, 1,189, 1,178, 1,163 and 1,154 marks respectively.

    Alternatively, a sustained close above 1,212 will take the parity higher towards key resistances around 1,218, 1,228, 1,233, 1,242 and 1,252marks respectively.

    Seoul shares open up 0.20 pct at 2128.17.

    Important to note here that 20D, 30D and 55D EMA heads down and confirms the bearish trend in a daily chart. Current upside movement is short term trend correction only.

    South Korea’s March unemployment rate decrease to 3.7 % vs previous 4.0 %.

    We prefer to take long position in EUR/KRW around 1,215, stop loss at 1,208 and target of 1,228.

    BoK Holds Key Interest Rate Steady

    The Bank of Korea stood pat on its policy rate on Thursday as the household debt continues to rise.

    The ruling to leave the seven-day repo rate unchanged at a historic low of 1.25 percent since June 2016 was widely anticipated by economists. South Korea's central bank will issue a new quarterly economic outlook for the current year later in the day, after its previous projections of 2.5 percent growth and 1.8 percent price growth in January.

    The central bank may likely extend its rate pause for a longer period of time, as swelling household debt and the Fed's monetary policy tightening further reduce the possibility of further easing in Korea.

    A hike in interest rates is also seen to increase the pressure of repayment for many consumers. South Korea's household debt reached 1, 344 trillion won at the end of 2016, a level that the BoK already perceives as restricting domestic consumption.

    BoK Gov. Lee Ju-yeol is slated to hold a press conference later in the day and investors are expected to look out for possible implications of increasing geopolitical tensions on the market

    USD/CNY is currently trading around 6.8744 marks.

    It made intraday high at 6.8889 and low at 6.8729 levels.

    Intraday bias remains bearish till the time pair holds key resistance at 6.90 mark.

    A sustained close above 6.8914 marks will test key resistances at 6.9037, 6.9146, 6.9204, 6.9336, 6.9496, 6.9615, 6.9778 and 6.9883 marks respectively.

    Alternatively, a daily close below 6.8914 will drag the parity down towards key supports at 6.8683, 6.8550, 6.8465, 6.8333, 6.8298, 6.8090 and 6.7769 marks respectively.

    PBOC sets Yuan mid-point at 6.8651/dollar vs last close 6.8930.

    China’s Q1 yuan-denominated exports +14.8 pct y/y.

    China’s Q1 yuan-denominated imports +31.1 pct y/y.

    Positioning is inconclusive at this point, with prices offering no clear cut signal to initiate a long or short trade. We will continue to remain on sidelines for the time being.

    U.S. Energy Chief Orders Study of Electric Grid to Ensure Power Supplies

    U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry called for a study of the U.S. electric grid, with the focus on examining whether policies which promote wind and solar energy are further accelerating the retirement of coal and nuclear plants significant to assure stable and reliable power supplies.

    The 60-day review follows as regulators try to figure out how they could balance electric reliability with a stack of state policies that are more focused on less stable renewable energy sources. U.S. President Donald Trump has moved to dismantle Obama-era policies which impeded coal-fired power plants. Regulations that Perry claims have reduced jobs and threatened to weaken the grid's performance. Perry's move implies that the administration is looking for ways to maintain coal plants online.

    The study comes after the G-7 Energy Ministerial meeting in Rome where a discussion was made for the need to diversify the supply of electricity. German consumers have been bearing the expense for a green transition, as it promptly shuts nuclear plants and embraces renewable power.

    Announcement: Moody's: Japan Economic Momentum Building, on the Back of Rising Exports and expected Fiscal Support



    Moody's Japan K.K. has released its latest issue of Inside Japan, which says that the Japanese economy is showing evidence of incremental progress on reflation, after the government's announcement of a fiscal package in August 2016, and the unveiling of the Bank of Japan's yield curve control framework a month later.

    Moody's also says that somewhat stronger external demand has augmented the impact of these measures by the Japanese government (A1 stable) and the Bank of Japan.

    Further tangible effects will likely materialize in 2017, as the promised fiscal stimulus is fully implemented. Faster economic growth is positive for the sovereign, because it helps to continue stabilizing the country's high public debt burden, its foremost credit weakness.

    Moody's "Inside Japan" bi-annual compendium includes recent key research and commentaries published, as well as a list of recent major rating actions in Japan.

    Moody's compendium points out that the yen has weakened considerably since September 2016, providing a boost to exports and corporate profitability. The recovery in external demand — consistent with a pick-up in global trade towards the end of 2016 — has amplified the effect of the weaker yen.

    Moody's also says that the near-term risks to Japan's growth outlook are broadly balanced. Moody's expects policy stimulus to provide support to the domestic economy, offsetting downside risks related to potentially more protectionist US trade policy.

    Wall Street Advanced as Dow Ends at Session Peaks

    U.S. equities finished higher as the Dow Jones industrial average ended over 180 points up while bank stocks and technology shares advanced. Market focus moved from geopolitical tensions to earnings results, with Goldman Sachs, General Electric and Johnson & Johnson all set to report results later this week.

    The Dow Jones industrial average climbed 0.9 percent to 20,636, as Boeing led gains while Exxon Mobil was the top decliner. The S&P 500 rose 0.86 percent at 2,349, with financials leading all 11 sectors up. The Nasdaq composite jumped 0.89 percent at 5,856.

    The SPDR S&P Bank ETF (KBE) increased more than half a percent after two Wells Fargo executives purchased $5 million worth of Wells stocks. The SPDR S&P Retail ETF climbed over one percent, led by Rent-A-Center gaining nearly six percent. The S&P 500's technology sector finished higher for the first time in 11 sessions.

    Shares of Netflix, which posted results after the bell, jumped 3.0 percent to $147.25 in the regular session but slipped 2.1 percent following the bell. Amazon gained the most on the S&P 500, higher by 2.0 percent to $901.99 after Credit Suisse improved its price target to $1,050 from $900. Credit Suisse also improved its price target on Boeing, which sent its shares 1.9 percent higher to $179.02.

    Wall Street Slips, Weighed Down by Goldman Sachs, J&J

    U.S. equities retreated as the S&P 500 dropped for the fourth time in five sessions, pulled down by declines in Goldman Sachs and Johnson & Johnson after their quarterly results. Investors remained cautious due to lingering geopolitical tensions and ahead of the French presidential election.

    The Dow Jones industrial average slipped 0.55 percent at 20,523.28, as Goldman Sachs led losses while Coca-Cola outperformed. The S&P 500 fell 0.29 percent at 2,342.19, with health care leading six sectors down while consumer staples being the top gainer. The Nasdaq Composite dropped 0.12 percent at 5,849.47.

    Goldman Sachs posted lower-than-expected-first-quarter results across the board, with trading revenue falling short of analysts expectations. Johnson & Johnson also posted mixed quarterly results that sent its shares falling over three percent.

    Netflix reported better-than-expected earnings, however, its guidance missed estimates. Bank of America recorded upbeat first-quarter results with nearly every single metric meeting or exceeding analysts expectations.

    Healthcare dropped one percent while financials lost 0.8 percent, and were the two worst-performing of the 11 major S&P sectors. Shares of Cardinal Health tumbled 11.5 percent, which also added pressure on healthcare following a weak profit forecast that outweighed a deal to purchase a medical supplies business from Medtronic for $6.1 billion.

    New Zealand’s Consumer Price Inflation Accelerates Above Expectations in Q1 2017



    New Zealand’s consumer price index rose 2.2 percent year-on-year in the first quarter of this year, showed Statistics New Zealand. This is the highest annual rise since the first quarter of September 2011. It is above market expectations of 2 percent. Statistics New Zealand senior manager Jason Attewell stated that increasing prices of petrol along with the annual increase in tax of cigarette and tobacco lifted inflation.

    Prices related to housing continued to rise in the quarter, rising 3.3 percent year-on-year. Meanwhile, transport prices were up 3.5 percent, the second largest contribution to the inflation, with petrol partly countered by declines in other private transport services. Stripping out cigarettes, petrol and tobacco, the consumer price index rose 1.5 percent year-on-year in the March quarter.

    On a quarter-on-quarter basis, the consumer price index was up 1 percent in the first quarter after a 0.4 percent rise in the fourth quarter of 2016. This is above the market expectations of a rise of 0.8 percent. Adjusting for seasonal effects, consumer price inflation rose 1 percent.

    “Higher prices for cigarettes and tobacco, petrol, and fruit were partly offset by lower prices for international air transport, and package holidays,” added Attewell.

    Prices for tobacco and cigarette upwardly contributed the most to inflation on a quarter-on-quarter basis, noted Statistics New Zealand.

    Canadian Retail Sales Likely to have dropped Sequentially in February, says Td Economics



    The Canadian retail sales is likely to have eased in February, following a growth in January. According to a TD Economics research report, total retail sales are expected to have fallen 0.4 percent sequentially, whereas excluding auto it is likely to have dropped 0.5 percent month-on-month. Subdued prices for gasoline might be a considerable headwind for nominal consumer spending, whereas a wider drop in seasonally adjusted consumer prices might result in a moderate outperformance in volumes. In January, retail sales had expanded 2.2 percent sequentially, whereas ex-auto sales had risen 1.7 percent.

    In spite of the 3.8 percent rise in motor vehicle sales last month, a pullback is unlikely. Meanwhile, industry reports indicate towards a moderate growth that might lead to a new monthly record. A surge in home sales might stimulate demand for furnishings and furniture. Outside these industries, a more disappointing performance is expected, but might downplay any adverse implications for the Canadian central bank amid increased worries regarding imbalances and a desire to witness a more balanced growth profile, noted TD Economics.

    Moreover, the Bank of Canada is not expected to be greatly concerned with a moderate slowdown in February because of the real retail sales strength last month, which might be a mainstay for the quarter, added TD Economics.
