  • Australia December Retail Sales Flat On Month

    The total value of retail sales in Australia was unchanged in December on a seasonally adjusted basis, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said on Friday, worth A$24.759 billion. That missed forecasts for an increase of 0.4 percent, which would have been unchanged from the November reading. Sales were up 0.6 percent in October. Among the individual components, food retailing was up 0.4 percent, along with household goods retailing (0.4 percent), clothing, footwear and personal accessory retailing (0.4 percent) and department stores (0.4 percent). Other retailing (0.0 percent) and cafes, restaurants and takeaway food services (0.0 percent) were relatively unchanged. By region, sales were up 0.4 percent in Victoria, followed by New South Wales (0.3 percent), Queensland (0.3 percent), South Australia (0.3 percent), the Australian Capital Territory (0.8 percent), Tasmania (0.3 percent) and the Northern Territory (0.2 percent). Western Australia (0.0 percent) was relatively unchanged. For the fourth quarter of 2015, retail sales added 0.6 percent to A$72.062 billion. That also missed expectations for an increase of 0.9 percent, although it was unchanged from the three months prior. Also on Friday, the Australian Industry Group said that the construction sector in Australia remained in contraction in January with a PMI score of 46.3. That's down from 46.8 in December, and it moves farther beneath the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction. Among the individual components of the survey, apartment building, commercial construction and engineering construction all contracted - while house building expanded for the second straight month. Activities and new orders remained in contraction, while supplier deliveries swung lower from expansion last month.

  • Japan GDP Slides 1.4% On Year In Q4

    Japan's gross domestic product contracted an annualized 1.4 percent on year in the fourth quarter of 2015, the Cabinet Office said in Monday's preliminary reading. That missed forecasts for a decline of 0.8 percent following the upwardly revised 1.3 percent increase in the third quarter (originally 1.0 percent). On a quarterly basis, GDP was down 0.4 percent - also shy of expectations for a decline of 0.2 percent following the 0.3 percent gain in the three months prior. Nominal GDP slipped 0.3 percent on quarter versus expectations for a fall of 0.1 percent following the upwardly revised 0.6 percent increase in the previous three months (originally 0.4 percent). The GDP deflator advanced 1.5 percent on year - also beneath forecasts for 1.6 percent and down from 1.8 percent in the third quarter. Private consumption tumbled 0.8 percent on quarter versus forecasts for a fall of 0.6 percent after gaining 0.4 percent in the previous three months. Capital expenditure gained 1.4 percent on quarter - topping expectations for a decline of 0.2 percent and accelerating from the 0.7 percent increase in the three months prior. Domestic demand shaved 0.5 percentage points from GDP growth, while net exports added 0.1 point.

  • Bank of Japan's negative interest rates take effect



    Despite the global market turmoil, the Bank of Japan has formally implemented negative interest rates aimed at encouraging banks to lend more money and press savers and entities to spend and invest. The BOJ unveiled the plan on January 29 where banks will pay 0.1% for keeping extra reserves with the central bank. The announcement pushed the markets down even though it quickly drove the Japanese yen down and beefed up stock prices. Stock prices of Japanese banks declined as well, plunging by as much as 30%. Although analysts said the timing of instituting negative rates was not right, Economic Minister Nobuteru Ishihara said it will take more time to gauge the effect of such rates, which has started to affect auto loans and mortgages.

  • Fed mulls changing plans over rate hikes - minutes



    Federal Reserve officials once considered changing their game plan on raising interest rates throughout this year, based on the minutes of their latest meeting. The minutes also showed policymakers were concerned a global economic degeneration could affect the United States and agreed the uncertainty had escalated since their decision to increase rates in December. Members unanimously voted to hike rates by 25 basis points last year for the first time since 2006. Since then, oil prices have continued to decline and global stock markets have been more volatile. Some officials felt they need to wait to further raise rates due to rigid economic conditions to ensure the US economic outlook is not dwindling and inflation is not below their 2% target.
