Asia Pacific Market: Shares gain on Wall Street cue
Feb 06,2017

Asia Pacific share market climbed on Monday, 06 February 2017, taking their cue from stronger US markets after President Donald Trump signed executive orders to review banking rules implemented after the 2008 global financial crisis.

Trump ordered on Friday for reviews of major banking rules, including the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that were put in place after the 2008 financial crisis, hinting at looser banking regulation in the future.

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was signed by former President Barack Obama in 2010 as a response to the financial crisis. The Act created new regulatory bodies and directed already-existing agencies to write hundreds of regulations aimed at creating stability in the financial markets. Theres an expectation that some of the global banking regulations might also lighten because they dont want to put global banks at disadvantage to the US banks.

President Donald Trump on Friday signed a memorandum ordering a review of the Dodd-Frank Act, the post-financial crisis regulatory overhaul that had guided regulators such as the Federal Reserve. The aim was n++cutting a lot outn++ of those rules, Mr Trump said at the White House.

Patrick McHenry, vice-chairman of the Republican-controlled Financial Services Commission, also wrote to US Federal Reserve chairwoman Janet Yellen last week saying the Fed n++must ceasen++ all efforts to negotiate binding standards such as the Basel accords governing bank capital until Mr Trump could appoint his own people.

Those occurred as expectations among investors of higher interest rates, less regulation and stronger economic growth stoked optimism banks would be able to return more capital to shareholders. While there is no guarantee the banks will do so, they have been eager in recent years to return capital as their profits have grown and their balance sheets have become less risky.

The six biggest US banks could return more than $US100 billion in capital to investors through dividends and share buybacks if the Trump administration succeeds in a push to loosen bank regulation.

Financials dominated gains on following strength in US peers after US President Trump ordered reviews of major banking rules, including the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, that were put in place after the 2008 financial crisis on Friday, hinting at looser banking regulation in the future. National Australia Bank ended 0.8% higher, even after it reported first-quarter cash earnings of A$1.6 billion, in line with expectations. Its cash profit fell 1%.

Materials stocks faltered, with index heavyweights BHP Billiton and South32 ending the session down 1.1% and 4.4%, respectively, on reports January iron ore shipments to China from Australias Port Hedland terminal, used by BHP and Fortescue Metals Group, were cut by 7.8% due to shipping interruptions caused by stormy weather. BHP also solicited government mediation with workers at its Escondida mine in Chile in a bid to avoid a strike.

Japan Stocks gain on firm US cues

The Japan share market settled higher, on following positive lead from Wall Street on Friday after U.S. President Donald Trumps executive order to start a review of financial system regulations and stronger-than-expected January U.S. employment data.

Takata, which is at the centre of the biggest-ever auto safety recall, plunged by its daily limit of 18.65% to 436 yen. The dive came after a weekend report that Key Safety Systems, a US company acquired by Chinas Ningbo Joyson Electronic last year, has been selected as the favoured candidate to help rehabilitate the troubled airbag maker.

China Equities close up

Mainland China stock market finished session higher, with sentiment buoyed by reported progress in restructuring state-owned enterprises (SOE).

The ChiNext Index, which tracks Chinas NASDAQ-style board of growth enterprises, rose 1.26% to 1,900.45 points.

Agricultural stocks rallied strongly, after the country said it would further boost farm reform. The CSI Agriculture Sub-industry Index gained 1.1%.

Sectors sensitive to interest rate ended mixed after the central banks unexpected tightening on Friday kept investors cautious. Chinas central bank surprised financial markets on Friday by raising short-term interest rates on the first trading day after the Lunar New Year holiday, in a reaffirmation of policy tightening as the economy shows signs of steadying.

Insurance firms, heavily invested in fixed income, rebounded on bargain-hunting despite renewed falls in treasury prices. Heavyweights China Life Insurance Co Ltd and Ping An Insurance Group Co of China Ltd added 2.3% and 1% respectively.

Asia Pacific Market: Stocks mostly up in thin holiday trade
Jan 27,2017

Asia Pacific share market closed mostly firmer in thin trading on Friday, 27 January 2017, on tracking a rally in broader global peers on strong U.S. corporate earnings and an overnight surge in oil prices. U.S. President Donald Trumps pro-growth initiatives also boosted sentiments. However overall gains remained muted amid a deepening rift between the U.S. and Mexico and ahead of U.S. fourth-quarter advance GDP figures on tap later in the day.

Overnight on Wall Street, all three major indexes hit life-time intraday highs, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average also closing at a record high after breaching 20,000 on Wednesday, on the back of hopes for U.S. President Donald Trumps economic stimulus measures and brisk earnings reports from major U.S. companies. The Dow rose 0.2% while the S&P 500 and the tech-heavy Nasdaq closed marginally lower.

Mexicos President Enrique Pen++a Nieto on Thursday scrapped his trip to Washington after U.S. President Donald Trump signed an executive order to move forward on construction of a physical wall between the two countries and repeated his claim for Mexico to foot the bill. The peso extended declines against the dollar amid a deepening spat over the border wall and trade disputes.

The market was keeping a close eye on the policies of the new US administration with some analysts optimistic that fiscal stimulus would help the economy grow faster, while others feared that trade protectionism would end up hurting consumers, jobs and growth in the US.

In the days key economic numbers, Japanese core inflation for December was slightly better-than-expected at -0.2% year-on-year. While the country remained in deflation, it was the smallest drop in core prices in 10 months. Higher import prices because of a weaker yen and rising oil prices were behind most of the improvement. During January in Tokyo, core consumer prices fell by -0.3%, also slightly better than analyst estimates of a -0.4% drop. Despite the somewhat positive tone of the inflation news, the yen lost ground - not only against the dollar but also versus the euro at 122.82 and against the pound at 144.50.

In other economic news, prices also firmed in Australia as producer prices for the fourth quarter rose at a faster pace compared to the previous quarter, while both export and import prices for the same period came ahead of estimates. In Europe, German import prices for December rose by 1.9% month-on-month, which was more than expected.

Looking ahead to the rest of the day, Eurozone loan and monetary aggregates for December will be watched. Later during the US session, durable goods orders for December and the advance estimate of fourth quarter GDP growth could move the market - particularly the GDP figures.

Jan 27,2017

The Japan share market settled higher for third straight session on Friday, 27 January 2017, on the back of firm cues from Wall Street overnight and yen descent against greenback. However, gains in Tokyo stocks were limited, as due to profit-taking ahead of the weekend. The 225-issue Nikkei average rose 65.01 points, or 0.34 percent, to end at 19,467.40. The Topix index of all first-section issues was up 4.24 points, or 0.27 percent, at 1,549.25.
