    Singapore Private Sector Accelerates In September - Nikkei



    The private sector in Singapore continued to expand in September, and at a faster pace, the latest survey from Nikkei revealed on Wednesday with a PMI score of 53.7.

    That's up from 53.2 in August, and it moves further above the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

    Individually, there were faster rises in both new orders and output, while export growth hit a record high.

    Backlogs rose again despite additional staff numbers.

    Trump’s Tax Overhaul Plan Hit with New Criticism



    President Donald Trump's plan to revamp the U.S. tax code came under fire once more on Tuesday from two renowned Wall Street figures, including Warren Buffet who raised the Republican push to reduce the U.S. corporate rate.

    Buffett and BlackRock Inc. CEO Larry Fink both indicated in separate interviews that the corporate rate may not have to be reduced as deeply as proposed by the White House and top Republicans in Congress.

    In an interview with CNBC, the chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. said the corporate tax rate did not affect the competitiveness of U.S. businesses.

    Meanwhile, Fink said a corporate rate as high as 27 percent could still give U.S. businesses' some breathing room, while preventing the widening in the federal budget deficit. During an interview on Bloomberg TV, Fink said that the current proposal will mean a big expansion of the country's deficits.

    The Republican tax plan outlined last month calls for reducing the corporate income tax rate to 20 percent from the current level of 35 percent, which majority of multinational firms are avoiding by taking advantage of loopholes in the tax code.

    Buffett added that the planned elimination of the estate tax under the Republican's plan is a 'terrible mistake'. Given that it only impacts a small percentage of Americans, scrapping the tax would not have widespread effects, he said.

    Yellen Says Fed Working to Properly Adjust Bank Regulations



    Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen expressed her support for ensuring that financial regulations are not excessively oppressive for banks.

    Speaking at a conference at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, Yellen said the Fed has been working hard to ensure that the U.S. central bank's regulation and supervision of banks are customized appropriately to the size, complexity, and roles varying institutions have in the financial system.

    The Fed chief's comments were mostly in line with her prior remarks that the Fed is putting into consideration the option of easing some of the regulatory burden on lenders, particularly the smaller banks.

    Yellen did not comment regarding her plans during the event. She did not also mention anything regarding the path of monetary policy or the economic outlook.

    But she underlined the recent move by the Fed to reduce cut red tape by simplifying several regulatory requirements. She told the conference that the Fed have been focused on ensuring that the much-required improvements to regulation and supervision since the crisis are needed and not 'unduly burdensome' for community banks.

    Yellen's remarks comes amid speculation in the market who will be her successor as the chair of the Fed when her term expires in early February.

    Hong Kong Private Sector Expands In September - Nikkei



    The private sector turned to expansion in September, the latest survey from Nikkei revealed on Friday with a PMI score of 51.2.

    That's up from 49.7 in August, and it moves above the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

    Individually, the index was boosted by renewed growth in new orders and output, although firms remain pessimistic about business outlook.

    Supply shortages helped to drive up input costs.

    Gold Steady Ahead of U.S. Payrolls Data



    Gold prices were steady on Friday ahead of the release of the U.S. jobs data later in the day, with prices being restrained from moving upwards as the dollar stood near a seven-week peak.

    Spot gold was flat at $1,268.52 per ounce. It fell 0.5 percent the session earlier.

    U.S. gold futures for December delivery dropped 0.2 percent at $1,270.90 an ounce.

    The number of Americans filing for jobless benefits dropped more than expected last week, but the sustained impact of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma on the data made it difficult to get a definite picture of the labour market.

    According to Kansas City Fed President Esther George, the Federal Reserve will need to hike U.S. interest rates further in order to keep the economy on course to full employment and the central bank's two percent inflation goal.

    Expectations of monetary tightening were also backed by Philadelphia Fed Bank President Patrick Harker saying he was still expecting one more rate hike this year and three next year.

    UBS trimmed its average forecast for the precious metal for this year to $1,270 from $1,300 taking into account the likelihood of a December rate hike weighing on the market, metals strategist Joni Teves said.

    New Zealand Dollar Tumbles to 4-Month Low amid Government Discussions



    The New Zealand dollar plunged to a four-month low following the release of a final vote count for the nation's general election, which failed to name the winner.

    The small nationalist New Zealand First Party continues to be main power after the final count revealed that the governing National Party lost some ground against the center-left Labour-Green bloc, compared with the preliminary tally announced on the Sept. 23 poll day.

    The New Zealand currency dropped to $0.7060 when markets opened on Monday, its weakest since early June from $0.7090 on Friday evening. It stood at $0.7066 during midday.

    NZ First continued negotiations on Monday with both the Labour and National, as it awaits its self-imposed deadline of Oct. 12 to announce which party it would support.

    According to Imre Speizer, head of NZ strategy at Westpac, “it remains unclear which way NZ First will swing, and when it will announce its intentions”. As a result, “the election-related uncertainty hanging over NZD markets is likely to persist until the composition of the government is announced.”

    Con Williams, economist at ANZ Bank, says “the downward bias for the NZD will likely continue following the tallying of the final vote count”.

    The Labour and New Zealand First hopes to hold down immigration, renegotiate particular trade deals and adjust the role of the central bank.

    China Private Sector Growth At 3-Month Low



    China's private sector expanded at the weakest pace in three months in September, survey data from IHS Markit showed Monday.

    The Caixin composite output index fell to 51.4 in September from 52.4 in August. However, any reading above 50 indicates expansion in the sector.

    The slowdown was driven by weaker increases in output at both manufacturing and services companies.

    The seasonally adjusted General Services Business activity index declined to 50.6 in September from 52.7 in August.

    Moreover, this signaled a marginal increase in services activity that was the slowest for 21 months.

    At the same time, growth in manufacturing production edged down to a three-month low.

    "The expansion in both manufacturing and services cooled in September, suggesting downward pressure on economic growth may re-emerge in the fourth quarter," Dr. Zhengsheng Zhong, Director of Macroeconomic Analysis at CEBM Group said.

    Gold Prices Climb but Strong Dollar Pares Gains



    Gold prices rose to their highest in over a week on Tuesday, but the gains were limited as the dollar held firm, supported by expectations of another Federal Reserve interest rate increase in 2017.

    Spot gold climbed 0.2 percent to $1,286.42 per ounce, notching its highest since Sept. 29.

    U.S. gold futures for December delivery rose 0.3 percent to $1,288.90 an ounce.

    The precious metal's prices rebounded after declining for a fourth consecutive week to a two-month low on Friday, after the release of a solid reading of U.S. wage growth and unemployment, which pushed the greenback and Treasury yields higher.

    Latest data showed that speculators trimmed their bullish stance in COMEX gold and silver contracts for the third consecutive week, in the week to Oct. 3.

    "For the time being, gold may have bottomed out," ABN Amro analyst Georgette Boele said. Expectations for a Fed rate hike, Boele said, are still adding pressure on gold, which, as a non-yielding asset, tends to suffer as interest rates increase.

    China's central bank held off from adding to gold reserves for an 11th straight consecutive month in September, recent data revealed.

    The dollar was steady on Tuesday after pulling back from a 10-week peak overnight, bolstered by underlying expectations that improved prospects for the U.S. economy would compel the Federal Reserve to hike interest rates by December.

    PERU: Government Signs US$ 200 Million Exploration Contracts With Anadarko



    The Peruvian government has signed three oil exploration and exploitation contracts evaluated at US$ 200 million. The contracts involve the state-owned oil company PeruPetro and the U.S. company Anadarko, that will jointly develop offshore blocks on the western Pacific coast.

    "In Peru, we have been slow in oil policy in the last 30 to 40 years, with contracts difficult to execute, and we are trying to improve it," said Peruvian President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski.

    He also stressed that this is the first time that deepwater hydrocarbon exploration will occur in the country.

    The three blocs range the provincial coasts of Chiclayo, Chep?n, Pacasmayo, Ascope, Trujillo, and Vir?.

    Gold Prices Climb on Weaker Dollar



    Gold prices increased for a fourth day on Wednesday, after notching a two-week peak in the session earlier, as the dollar weakened.

    Spot gold rose 0.2 percent at $1,290.56 per ounce. It hit its highest level since Sept. 27 in the session earlier.

    U.S. gold futures for December delivery was flat at $1,293 an ounce.

    The dollar weakened against its peers and pulled back from a 10-week peak set recently amid speculation that U.S. President Donald Trump's tax overhaul plan would stall. A firm euro also weighed on the greenback.

    Fed funds futures showed that traders implied almost a 90 percent likelihood of a December rate hike.

    "The only news holding down the price of course are the impending rate hikes from the Federal Reserve but if these political issues grow much worse you can bet that $1,300 will not be the top," according to Miguel Perez-Santalla, vice president of Heraeus Metal Management in New York, citing concerns surrounding Spain and North Korea.

    The London Metal Exchange sees three more clearing members to join its precious metals contract by the end of 2017 and is also looking to expand trading around its gold and silver reference prices, Chief Executive Matthew Chamberlain said.

    Fed Minutes show Policymakers’ Support for December Rate Hike



    The minutes of the Federal Reserve meeting on September 19-20 showed that members of the FOMC had a prolonged discussion regarding the prospects of inflation's growth and slowing the rate of future interest rate hikes if it failed to pick-up.

    Record of the most recent policy meeting showed that Fed officials see the economy growing at a steady rate. The minutes also show that policymakers expect inflation will reach the targeted 2 percent, with FOMC members anticipating that factors weakening inflation are temporary.

    Several members said that they would focus on the incoming inflation data over the next few months when deciding regarding the future of interest rate moves.

    It also indicated that an interest rate hike later this year is almost certain, despite some divisions regarding the outlook for the direction of inflation. According to the summary of the meeting, many members thought that another rate hike in the target range later this year, presumably in December, was likely to be warranted if the medium-term outlook continued to be unchanged.

    In the end, the FOMC ruled against an interest rate hike at the meeting, choosing instead to announced that in October it would start to reduce its massive balance sheet, which will be done by allowing small part of the proceeds from its maturing bonds to roll off.
