UK House Price Balance Rises To +34 In May - R

House prices in the United Kingdom are expected to move higher over the next three months, the latest survey from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors showed on Thursday, with an index score of +34. That touches a nine-month high, and it's up from +32 in April, although it was shy of expectations for +36. The increase in prices was the natural result of the Conservative Party's electoral victory last month, RICS said. "It is hardly surprising that prices across much of the country are continuing to be squeezed higher with property set to become ever more unaffordable," RICS chief economist Simon Rubinsohn said.

Moody's: China Has Made Substantial Progress on Reform and Rebalancin

Moody's Investors Service says that China has made substantial progress on reforming and rebalancing its economy, since the government committed to deep reforms during the third plenary session of the 18th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China in November 2013. "Substantial progress has been made on reform and rebalancing, and the general direction of government policy is supported by important initiatives such as the anti-corruption campaign and the One Belt, One Road strategy," says Michael Taylor, a Moody's Managing Director and Chief Credit Officer for Asia Pacific. "However, there are two main tail risks to the relatively benign scenario that forms our core view, although we do not think either of them is very likely. The first would be an asset price correction in property or equities, and the second would be a rapid and ill-prepared liberalization of the capital account," adds Taylor. Taylor explains that China's reforms and rebalancing of its economy involve balancing the following four factors: 1) The reorientation of the economy away from state-led, capital intensive investment towards private consumption; 2) Lowering the economy's dependence on credit-fuelled growth; 3) The implementation of policies that will allow markets to play a decisive role, to scale back on the government's role in the economy, and to enhance property rights; and 4) Ensuring that short-term growth does not fall substantially below the government's target of around 7%.

Moody's Investors say Regulatory Costs and a Lack of Liquidity Inhibit the Growth of Europe's structured Finance Market

In a round table discussion, Moody's Investors Service found that the European securitisation market's regulatory capital costs is a barrier to demand, in addition to a lack of liquidity.  In a new report published today, the rating agency says investors do not believe the capital treatment of European structured finance instruments reflects their associated risks.  "Investors desired change in the capital framework for banks that hold structured finance instruments, which could create more liquidity in the market. The market's growth depends on the arrival of more bank investors, in their view," commented Jean Dornhofer a Moody's Senior Vice President and author of the report.  "While investors consider the idea of standardisation - as part of criteria for qualifying securitisation - to be a step forward for the market, they say it should be a second-order objective as it doesn't create demand," she observed.  The new report: "Investors Say Regulatory Costs and a Lack of Liquidity Are Barriers to the Growth of European Structured Finance Market,".  Moody's found these investors consider that the regulatory capital treatment of structured finance instruments does not reflect their associated risks. If the current levels of regulatory capital associated with structured finance instruments remain the same, the European structured finance market will not return, according to some investors. Investors say the concept of a qualifying securitisation provides an opportunity to revisit the rules on capital and liquidity treatment of structured finance instruments and align them with instruments of equivalent risk.  The discussion revealed that the expansion of the European structured finance market depends on the arrival of more bank investors. A change in the capital framework might help create more liquidity in the structured finance market. Investors consider that banks do not want to invest in instruments that cannot be easily liquidated. Improving the standardisation of capital treatment of structured finance instruments versus other instruments would help increase the investor base, increasing liquidity in the secondary market. The low depth of the secondary market affects the appetite of "real money" investors.  Investors said that issuers need to find a broader, active investor base for mezzanine and equity tranches. With spreads tightening, hedge funds may exhibit less demand for subordinated tranches.  Moody's report summarises investors' general feedback, rather than the specific view of any individual participant. As the number of participants is not statistically significant, the findings are more anecdotal than scientific. The views expressed are not necessarily Moody's view.

Canadian dollar slightly changed on weak data, before Fed meeting

The Canadian dollar was moderately changed on Monday as factory sales dropped more than projected and the market awaits Federal Reserve's policy meeting this week. Official figures showed factory sales fell 2.1% in April because of lower sales of food and aerospace products, its third decline in four months. Traders are also expecting Fed's policy statement on Wednesday. The loonie ended at 81.19 US cents from Friday's 81.23 US cents. Markets are disregarding Greece's debt crisis as of the moment “as you really don't know which way things are going," said Benjamin Reitzes, Senior Economist and Foreign Exchange Strategist at BMO Capital Markets.

US dollar plummets as Fed signals rate hike by end of year

The US dollar slumped on Wednesday as the Federal Reserve implied it might wait until late this year to increase interest rates. Policymakers said it would hike rates when the economy is strong enough to handle it. Also, they lowered the projections from 2.3% to 2.7% range forecast in March to 1.8% to 2.0% this year. The greenback closed at $1.1199 per euro and $1.5640 per British pound. Against the Japanese yen, the dollar ended at ¥124.435. It has to be gentle… It is reiterating everything Fed Chair “Janet Yellen has tried embody in the last couple of years,” said Andrew Wilkinson, Chief Market Strategist at Interactive Brokers LLC.

US dollar slides to new 1-month lows on calm inflation data

The US dollar skidded to new one-month trough on Friday, as inflation data aggravated the uncertainty over the timing of Federal Reserve's interest rate hikes. A measure of core inflation went up almost 0.1% in May, the smallest increase in five months. The greenback stood at $1.1373 per euro. Against the Japanese yen, the dollar closed at ¥123.080. It seems the US markets were contented with the view this week's FOMC meeting “reduced the chances of more than one rate hike before year end,” said Ray Attrill, Global Co-head of FX Strategy at National Australia Bank.

US dollar turns in advances on deadlock in Greek talks

The US dollar stabilized on Thursday as debt talks seeking to avert a Greek debt default reached a bump, with the market seemed to shift back to likelihoods of higher interest rates from Greece. The greenback stood at $1.1204 per euro from Tuesday's $1.1135. Against the Japanese yen, the dollar hit ¥123.88 from ¥124.38 earlier. EUR/USD responded less, unlike USD/JPY on underlying positivity an agreement will be closed as it remains intact “amid pessimism over the talks breaking down,” said Junichi Ishikawa, Market Analyst at IG Securities. Meanwhile, European leaders are scheduled to meet in Brussels Thursday.

Canadian dollar ascends on talks over Greek debt deal

The Canadian dollar strengthened versus the US dollar Thursday, recuperating losses in the last session. But its move was constricted by few domestic economic data and markets focusing on negotiations over Greek debt deal. Greek officials and bailout lenders will resume talks Saturday, Greece's last chance to score a deal with its creditors to avoid default and eurozone exit. The loonie ended at 81.15 US cents from Wednesday's 80.65 US cents. Everyone's awaiting the Greek news. It is going to be difficult for markets to “solidify a move in any direction,” said Benjamin Reitzes, Senior Economist and Foreign Exchange Strategist at BMO Capital Markets. Meanwhile, markets will be closed Wednesday to commemorate the Canada Day holiday.

Moody's: Asean Banks Well placed to Comply With Basel III Capital and Liquidity Ratios

Moody's Investors Service says that banks in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region -- namely those in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines -- are well placed to comply with stricter capital and liquidity requirements under Basel III. "Moody's-rated banks in the ASEAN region are well capitalized and can meet the higher minimum capital requirements under Basel III," says Alka Anbarasu, a Moody's Vice President and Senior Analyst. "As for the 60% minimum liquidity coverage ratio under Basel III, in many cases, the banks are already 100% compliant, though national differences make it difficult to compare the reported ratios across different banking systems." "On the issue of additional banking regulations, we note that regulators in the region appear hesitant to embrace the wider bail-in and total loss absorbing capital (TLAC) guidelines as they await more clarity from the Financial Stability Board (FSB)," adds Anbarasu. Anbarasu also expects selective issuance of Basel III securities by banks across ASEAN; in particular, to replace legacy old-style securities which will be callable over 2015-2017. Moody's analysis is contained in its just-released presentation titled "ASEAN Banks Well Placed for Basel III Capital and Liquidity Ratio Compliance," and is authored by Anbarasu. Moody's points out that liquidity coverage ratios (LCRs) have already been implemented in Singapore and Malaysia. Given the predominance of retail funding as well as government bonds in the investment portfolio, Moody's expects most rated banks in the region will be able to comply with the 60% minimum requirement by end-2015; in many cases banks are already 100% compliant. However, national differences on the definition of high quality liquid assets and outflows, whether or not LCRs should be assessed based on a consolidated or standalone basis, and LCR requirements in different currencies could make it difficult to compare the reported ratios across different banking systems. Moody's adds that it expects regulators in the region will announce by the end of 2015, the list of domestic systemically important banks (D-SIB) in their respective banking systems. Moody's points out that seven banks in Singapore -- three local and four foreign -- have already been identified as systemically important.

British pound strengthens as UK economy improves

The British pound accelerated on Tuesday as UK economy improves and the likelihood of an interest rate hike increases. Consumer confidence in the United Kingdom leaped to its highest level in more than 15 years in June, with monthly sentiment index bounced to +7 from +1 in May. Sterling surged to 70.85 British pence per euro from Monday's 69.89 British pence. Against the US dollar, the pound closed at $1.5726. The UK and the United States are the only two countries that seem to have “central banks that are teeing markets up for slightly less accommodative monetary policy,” said Gavin Friend, Strategist at National Australia Bank Ltd.

US dollar ascends on upbeat ADP jobs data

The US dollar strengthens on Thursday as the market is preparing for a bunch of US data ahead of the July 4 Independence Day. Based on the ADP National Employment Report, private employers added 237,000 in June, the largest gain since December. The greenback finished at $1.1044 per euro. Against the Japanese yen, the dollar fetched ¥123.22. Additional improvement in the labor sector may bolster speculations for a rate hike this year. But it “risks a further delay in the Fed's normalization cycle,” said David Song, Currency Analyst at DailyFX.

British pound recuperates amid upbeat UK construction data

The British pound regained from two-week troughs versus the US dollar Thursday following UK construction output increased in June. Markit reported the UK construction purchasing managers' index climbed to 58.1 from 55.9 in May. Against the US dollar, sterling stood at $1.5640. The pound finished at 71.04 pence per euro. We notice some moderate selling in the US dollar, with jobs figures “helping the euro and the pound,” said a London-based spot trader. Risks to the UK economy lurk in the likelihood of Greece's eurozone exit. But in the short run, ructions in the region could cultivate safe-haven inflows into the country.

Japan May Current Account Surplus Y1.880 Trillion

Japan posted a current account surplus of 1.880 trillion yen in May, the ministry of Finance said on Wednesday - surging 266.7 percent on year. The headline figure topped expectations for a surplus of 1.570 trillion yen following the 1.326 trillion yen surplus in April. The trade balance reflected a deficit of 47.3 billion yen - also beating forecasts for a shortfall of 283.8 billion yen following the 146.2 billion yen shortfall in the previous month. Exports were down 0.1 percent on year to 5.707 trillion yen following the 4.1 percent jump in April. Imports tumbled an annual 10.3 percent to 5.754 trillion yen following the 5.9 percent decline a month earlier. The capital account had a deficit of 8.9billion yen, the ministry said, while the financial account saw a surplus of 3.629 trillion yen. The adjusted current account surplus was 1.636 trillion yen - which beat forecasts for 1.375 trillion yen following the 1.274 trillion yen surplus a month earlier. Also on Wednesday, the Bank of Japan said that overall bank lending in Japan was up 2.5 percent on year in June, coming in at 487.773 trillion yen.

New Zealand dollar saps despite Greek debt woes

The New Zealand dollar devitalized Monday as concern escalated regarding the future of Greece following eurozone leaders amplified their demands for reforms over the weekend. At an emergency summit on Sunday, eurozone leaders pressed Greek officials to revise key tax, pension, and privatization reforms by Wednesday before resuming talks. The kiwi closed at 60.33 euro cents from Friday's 60.92 euro cents, 67.01 US cents from 67.22 US cents, and 43.17 British pence from 43.89 British pence. The currency ended at ¥81.91 from ¥82.31, and 90.29 Australian cents from 90.34 Australian cents. Optimism encompassing a Greek deal has slightly faded this morning, “as euro-zone leaders are yet to formally agree on a path forward,” said Raiko Shareef, Currency Strategist at Bank of New Zealand.

Singapore Second Quarter GDP Slows To 1.7%

Singapore's gross domestic product gained 1.7 percent on year in the second quarter of 2015, the Ministry of Trade and Industry said in Tuesday's advance estimate. That was well shy of forecasts for an increase of 3.2 percent and down from the upwardly revised 2.8 percent growth in the first quarter (originally 2.6 percent). Seasonally adjusted and on an annualized quarterly basis, GDP tumbled 4.6 percent - missing by a mile forecasts for an increase of 1.0 percent. GDP had expanded an upwardly revised 4.2 percent on quarter in the three months prior (originally 3.2 percent). The manufacturing sector contracted 4.0 percent on year in the second quarter, extending the 2.7 percent decline in the previous quarter. The contraction was largely due to a fall in output in the biomedical manufacturing and transport engineering clusters. On a quarterly basis, the sector contracted at an annualized rate of 14.0 percent, reversing the 0.4 percent expansion in the three months prior. The construction sector expanded 2.7 percent on year in the second quarter, up from the 2.1 percent growth in the previous quarter. Growth was supported by stronger expansion in public sector construction activities. On a quarterly basis, the sector contracted at an annualized rate of 0.2 percent, in contrast to the 8.3 percent gain in the preceding quarter. Growth in the services producing industries came in at 3.0 percent on year in Q2, easing from 4.2 percent in the previous quarter. The moderation in growth was largely due to slower expansion in the wholesale and retail trade and business services sectors, as well as a contraction in the transportation and storage sector. On a quarterly basis, the services producing industries contracted at an annualized rate of 2.6 percent, reversing the 3.8 percent growth in Q1.

Canadian dollar recedes as markets shift focus on BOC, Fed

The Canadian dollar retreated Monday, as markets have turned their attention on the Bank of Canada and Federal Reserve following Greece closed an agreement with its international lenders. Bank of Canada is set to release its interest rate decision Wednesday, while prospects of Fed increasing rates in September were renewed. The loonie finished at 78.49 US cents from Friday's 78.87 US cents. The likelihood of BOC reducing rates is somewhat weighing on the loonie. “That explains some of the early weakness today,” said Mark Chandler, Head of Canadian Fixed Income and Currency Strategy at RBC Capital Markets. Last week, Statistics Canada reported unemployment rate stayed at 6.8% for the fifth consecutive month. The country also gained a net 32,800 jobs.
