    Australia Keeps Rates On Hold



    Australia's central bank decided to leave its key interest rate unchanged at a record low, as widely expected, on Tuesday.

    The board of the Reserve Bank of Australia, governed by Philip Lowe, maintained the cash rate at 1.50 percent. The bank had reduced the rate by 25-basis points each in August and May last year.

    The bank noted that the low level of interest rates is continuing to support the Australian economy.

    The Bank's central forecast for the Australian economy is for GDP growth to pick up, to average a bit above 3 percent over the next couple of years.

    The central forecast is for CPI inflation to be a bit above 2 percent in 2018.

    Taking account of the available information, the Board judged that holding the stance of monetary policy unchanged at this meeting would be consistent with sustainable growth in the economy and achieving the inflation target over time.

    BRAZIL: Ibovespa Up 2.5% Rebound From Monday's Sharp Decline



    The Ibovespa rose 2.48% Tuesday, closing at 83,894.03 points in a day of rebound after Monday's turmoil in the U.S. markets. On the domestic front, Ita? Unibanco's result fueled financial sector stocks.

    "Yesterday was a test for the market as a whole. That signaled that if interest rates rise in the United States, the market could collapse. But the message given today is clear: raising with volume above R$ 16.9 billion means that the market is bought and which yesterday was just a scare," said the chief economist of Codepe brokerage, Jos? Costa.

    For the chief economist of Gradual Investimentos, Andr? Perfeito,Tuesday's rise was led by the rebound from Monday's drop.

    In the business segment, Ita? Unibanco's fourth-quarter results stimulated a 3.59% increase in the bank's shares and helped financial sector stocks such as Bradesco and Banco do Brasil to rise 2.38% and 4.38%, respectively.

    For Wednesday, Perfeito foresees that the Brazilian market should continue to track foreign markets and that the result of the meeting of the central bank's Monetary Policy Committee (Copom) is already priced. Costa, however, sees room for the index to continue rising, without the external interference.

    Meanwhile, in a day of volatility, with global assets reversing the stress of Monday's session in adjustments, the locally traded U.S. dollar closed down, but near to stability (-0.03%), quoted at R$ 3.247.

    U.S. Yields Pare Losses as Stocks Recover from Selloff



    Treasury yields reversed some of their losses but still closed lower after stocks rallied from the prior day's rout that drove investors toward safe havens and pushed bond prices up.

    The yield on the 10-year Treasury notes edged down 2.8 basis points to 2.766 percent, after having declined to as low as 2.648 percent. The benchmark yield had climbed to a four-year peak of 2.883 percent on Monday. Two-year note yield was mostly unchanged at 2.091 percent, while the 30-year rate was down 2.3 basis points to 3.043 percent.

    Yields on the 10-year German bund shed 4.6 basis points to 0.691 percent, according to Factset data.

    Appetite for safe-haven bonds eased after stocks jumped a day after a historic selloff in the U.S. equities markets when the Dow Jones Industrial Average observed its biggest one-day decline in history. Investors tend to shift towards bonds and other safe-haven assets whenever there is chaos in riskier assets, such as stocks.

    Japan Current Account Surplus Falls To Y797.2 Billion



    Japan posted a current account surplus of 797.2 billion yen in December, the Ministry of Finance said on Thursday - down 28.5 percent on year.

    The headline figure was shy of expectations for a surplus of 1,056.9 billion yen following the 1,347.3 billion yen surplus in November.

    The trade balance showed a surplus of 538.9 billion yen, exceeding expectations for 520.4 billion yen and up from 181.0 billion yen in the previous month.

    Exports climbed 8.8 percent on year to 7.271 trillion yen, while imports jumped 14.6 percent to 6.732 trillion yen.

    The capital account showed a deficit of 18.7 billion yen, while the financial account saw a surplus of 1.885 trillion yen.

    The adjusted current account surplus was 1,479.6 billion yen - missing forecasts for 1,660.0 billion yen and down from 1,700.5 billion yen a month earlier.

    For all of 2017, the current account surplus was 21.874 trillion yen.

    Also on Thursday, the Bank of Japan said that overall bank lending in Japan was up 2.4 percent on year in January, coming in at 523.068 trillion yen.

    That follows the 2.5 percent increase in December.

    Excluding trusts, bank lending was up an annual 2.3 percent to 454.911 trillion yen following the 2.4 percent gain in the previous month.

    Lending from trusts climbed 2.5 percent to 68.157 trillion yen, while lending from foreign banks surged 14.0 percent to 2.433 trillion yen.

    Bitcoin Posts Sharp Gains after Recent Slump



    Bitcoin rallied along with solid gains in other cryptocurrencies on Wednesday.

    According to CoinDesk, the biggest digital currency based on market capitalization traded 9.5 percent higher above $8, 400. The rally marked an increase of over $2, 000 in just over a day.

    The gains came after a Senate Banking Committee hearing on Tuesday on cryptocurrencies in with the chairmen of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Securities and Exchange Commission underlined consumer protection without a heavy-handed prohibition on the development of virtual assets. The agency heads also said Treasury Secretary Mnuchin is gathering several federal agencies to draft out the regulation on the fast-expanding industry.

    Before the hearing, bitcoin slid below $6, 000 to $5, 947.40, its lowest level since November 13 amid a slump in U.S. stocks. The S&P 500 edged up late Tuesday to end 1.7 percent up, but stock index futures indicated a lower open on Wednesday.

    Other cryptocurrencies traded up. Ethereum advanced 5.6 percent to $838, ripple climbed 2.3 percent and bitcoin cash rose almost 4.8 percent, according to COinMarketCap.

    On a 24-hour basis, the biggest cryptocurrencies by market cap posted double-digit gains. Bitcoin continues to be almost 17 percent lower for the month and down 39 percent down for 2018 so far.

    Benchmark U.S. Yield Remain on Upward Path even as Stocks Plunge



    Treasury Yields rebounded on Thursday as edgy investors drove down stock benchmarks significantly lower in another dramatic and volatile session on Wall Street driven by inflation concerns, but the benchmark 10-year note clung to an upward movement.

    The yield for the 10-year Treasury note stood at 2.848 percent, rising 0.8 percent, after recording an intraday high of 2.875 percent. The two-year note yield fell 0.4 basis point to 2.130 percent, while the 30-year bond rate edged up 1.8 basis point to 3.134 percent.

    After a short-lived flight to safe haven assets drove yields lower on Monday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average losing over 800 points at its lowest, government paper saw a resumption in selling, pushing yields up again.

    A rally in bonds helped to reverse the selloff after the Bank of England said that strong inflation could accelerate the schedule of rate hikes, putting pressure on British government bonds. BoE's Monetary Policy Committee voted unanimously to retain interest rates at 0.5 percent. The central bank has received criticism from analysts arguing that the country's borrowing rates are too low as the weak pound has stoked inflationary pressures.

    The 10-year UK bond yield surged 7.9 basis points to 1.617 percent, according to Tradeweb. Meanwhile, the sterling rallied to $1.3914, rising from $1.3882 before the BoE report.

    Ireland Consumer Sentiment At 17-Year High



    Ireland's consumer confidence reached a 17-year high in January reflecting robust economy, survey results from KBC Bank and the Economic and Social Research Institute showed Monday.

    The consumer sentiment index rose to 110.4 in January from 103.2 in December. This was the highest score since February 2001.

    However, the survey suggested that the improvement was largely driven by bargain hunting in post-Christmas sales. This strong 'seasonal' element to jump in January may be reversed in coming months, the survey cautioned.

    An improvement in all five main components of the survey points to a distinct improvement in the mood of Irish consumers at the start of 2018.

    The index of current conditions improved to 129.6 from 122.9 a month ago. Likewise, the index of consumer expectations came in at 97.5, up from 90 in December.

    The general economic outlook index climbed to 73.4 from 65.3. Similarly, the outlook for employment index rose to 98.0 from 94.3 in the previous month.

    The indicator measuring past personal financial situation improved to 108 and that for coming twelve months gained to 125.6.

    Austin Hughes, KBC Bank Ireland, said, "The sharp rise in sentiment in January partly reflects the continuing improvement in the Irish economy that now seems to be reaching more broadly across Irish consumers."

    Wall Street Gains as Dow Jumps 253 Points



    U.S. stocks increased sharply on Wednesday, hitting a four-day winning streak as banks and tech lifted major indexes higher.

    The Dow Jones industrial average closed 253.04 points higher at 24,893.49 after dropping as much as 150 points. Goldman Sachs contributed the most to the gains, climbing 2.8 percent. The 30-stock index also pared all of its 2018 losses and reported its longest winning streak since Jan. 5.

    The S&P 500 rose 1.3 percent to 2,698.63, with financials and tech each gaining over 1.5 percent. Bank of America, J.P. Morgan Chase, Citigroup and Morgan Stanley all traded higher. The financials sector had its best day since Nov. 28. The index also turned positive for 2018.

    The Nasdaq composite climbed 1.9 percent to end at 7,143.62, as shares of Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Alphabet increased.

    U.S. equities opened lower on the back of stronger-than-expected inflation data.

    Seven of the 11 major S&P 500 sectors were higher. The decliners included the typically defensive sectors: consumer staples, utilities and real estate.

    The CBOE Volatility index was down at 21.10 points, slipping below 20 for the first time since Feb. 5 and well off the 50-point mark it hit during last week's sell-off.

    The SPDR S&P Bank exchange-traded fund (KBE), rose 2.9 percent and posted its best day since Nov. 29.

    Concerns of rising inflation have recently weighed down Wall Street. Last week, all three major U.S. indexes finished the five-day trading period more than five percent down each, with the Dow delivering its worst performance since January 2016.
