  • Fed: Strong dollar, low energy prices impact US economic growth



    A firm US dollar and low energy prices have affected the American economy, as improvements in consumer spending and the labor market did nothing to counter its negative effects. Based on its Beige Book report of anecdotal details on business activity, collated from contacts in the country, the Federal Reserve said US economic activity expanded in nine of the 12 districts. The Boston Fed reported a positive economic activity, while Kansas City and New York districts considered theirs flat. Also, half the central bank's districts noted the perception for future economic growth was still mostly optimistic. Policymakers, in general, perceive additional four quarter-point increments in 2016 although they reiterated it would depend on figures and progress on Fed's 2% target on inflation.

  • Australia Unemployment Rate Steady At 5.8% In December



    The jobless rate in Australia was a seasonally adjusted 5.8 percent in December, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said on Thursday. That was unchanged from the November reading, and it beat forecasts for 5.9 percent. The Australian economy lost 1,000 jobs in December to 11,902,300 - which also topped forecasts for a decline of 10,000 jobs following the addition of 71,400 jobs in the previous month. Full-time employment saw an increase of 17,600 jobs in December to 8,228,700 following the spike of 41,600 a month earlier. Part-time employment was down 18,500 jobs to 3,673,600 following the 29,700 increase in November. Unemployment decreased 10,900 to 727,500. The number of unemployed persons looking for full-time work decreased 2,600 to 515,000 while the number of unemployed persons only looking for part-time work decreased 8,400 to 212,500. "The trend shows that around 312,000 more people were employed in December 2015 than in December 2014. Full-time employment growth was stronger than part-time over the year, increasing by 186,600 people," said Bruce Hockman, General Manager of ABS' Macroeconomic Statistics Division. The increase in employment has contributed to the trend employment to population ratio rising over the year from 60.6 percent to 61.4 percent, while the unemployment rate has decreased over the year from 6.2 percent to 5.8 percent. The participation rate was 65.1 percent - missing forecasts for 65.2 percent and down from 65.3 percent a month earlier. Monthly hours worked in all jobs increased 0.3 million hours to 1,645.2 million hours.

  • UK House Prices Rise For First Time In 3 Months: Rightmove

    British house prices climbed at the start of the year, after declining in the previous two months, the latest house price balance from property tracking website Rightmove showed on Monday. The house price index rose slightly by 0.5 percent month-over-month in January, in contrast to a 1.1 percent decrease in December. "With their asking prices pretty much the same as a month ago, perhaps the knock-on effects of the more punitive landlord tax regime have arrived early and they now face a dilemma over whether to buy now or wait to see if prices drop in this sector over the next few months," Miles Shipside, co-founder of Rightmove, said. On an annual basis, house prices house prices grew at a slower pace of 6.5 percent in January, following a 7.4 percent surge in the prior month.

  • Oversupply may saturate oil market, says IEA

    Oversupply may submerge the overall crude oil market until at least in the latter part of 2016 due to increasing supply and unusual warm weather. Based on the International Energy Agency's monthly report, such factors could push oil prices lower than its present 12-year troughs. It also warned of more price declines ahead. Also, the IEA said oil supply worldwide could surpass demand by 1.5 million barrels per day in the first half of the year, with Iran adding 600,000 bpd by mid-2016 and other nations keeping current output. Brent futures LCOc1, sliding below $30 a barrel, have hit its lowest level since late 2003 after the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries decided not to reduce output to stop the price decline amid oversupply.

  • Fitch: Rising Interest Rates to Ease Taiwan Life Insurers' Negative Spreads

    Fitch Ratings says in a new report that a persistent decline in the costs of insurance liabilities and improvements in recurring investment yields on rising market interest rates will reduce Taiwanese life insurers' negative interest spreads. However, the Sector Outlook remains Negative as Fitch expects that the high guaranteed rates of legacy policies will still constrain the sector's profitability at least in the near term. Life insurers' costs of insurance liabilities have been dropping by about 10 bp per year with inflows of low-guaranteed-rate policies. Fitch estimates that large insurers have lower funding costs at below 3.5% after including mortality/morbidity and loading gains, versus above 4.5% for some small insurers. Rising interest rates would help improve returns from life insurers' assets, which have shorter duration than their insurance liabilities. Asset risk is the key concern in the life sector, as life insurers have taken significant overseas investments at 55.7% of invested assets at end-August 2015. They are increasingly involved in corporate bonds, financial debentures and sovereign bonds of emerging markets, shifting from treasuries and agency bonds issued by developed countries. Their capitalisation, therefore, is vulnerable to unfavourable movements in the capital and currency markets. For non-life insurers, their Stable Sector Outlook is supported by strong capital buffers and satisfactory underwriting performance, with combined ratios generally below 95%. Non-life insurers' aggregate equity-to-assets ratio was 32% at end-August 2015. They had also accumulated claims equalisation reserves of 13% of total assets by end-2014. The sector's underwriting leverage remains low, at around 1x between 2011 and 2014, as measured by net premiums written/shareholders' equity.

  • Wall Street slumps to 2014 trough as oil prices hit 2003 lows

    Wall Street plummeted as the S&P 500 touched its lowest since October 2014 and US oil prices plunged to 2003 troughs. US crude slid 6.6% as a supply glut affected bearish financial reports, aggravating woes over demand. But a bounce in US oil prices helped counter losses in stocks. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 15,766.74 points, down 1.56%. The Nasdaq Composite ended at 4,471.69, down 0.12%. The S&P 500 settled at 1,859.33, down 1.17%. Also, the CBOE volatility index was at 27.59, up 5.9%.

  • China to look after stock traders, says Li

    China assures stock market investors the country will uphold their interests to ensure speculators won't benefit at their expense, and that the government is willing to intervene, if necessary. Vice President Li Yuanchao said the administration would improve regulation in order to curb volatility, saying the Chinese market is not yet mature. Both the Hang Seng China and the Shanghai composite indices have wiped out over 15% this year even though the People's Bank of China injected cash into the system to bolster the economy and pull down borrowing costs.
