*** NOTES ***
- Equity markets maintain a firmer tone post Fed. The Funds rates now revisit
the 1% level and the economic outlook remains a concern and traders noting that
access to credit remains the key focus moving forward, especially into
year-end. The FED's arragement to provide $30Beach to the central banks of Brazil,
Korea and Singapore,
was a first to emerging market nations. The US Q3 advanced GDP figure is not
expected to be positive. The BOJ rate decision is expected tomorrow and growing
expectations for a rate cut there. The question is whether the European central
banks would follow suit. U.K.
house prices dropped by the most in at least 17 years in October added to the
glum economic outlook. Nikkei was up just 10% for the session. Emerging markets
are not out of the woods just yet. Dealers noting that Russia's
international reserves dropped $31B last week, the biggest decline this year to
its currency and banking system from the global financial crisis.
