The Eurogroup office subsequently backtracked on those comments, denying that Dijsselbloem described the Cyprus bailout as a "template" for future bank restructuring. Subsequently, the Eurogroup head said he misspoke in referring to the terms of the deal as a blueprint, even though the damage on sentiment had already translated into weaker EUR and equities, benefiting USD and JPY. Tokyo stocks recovered somewhat from their initial lows and the yen traded softer as BoJ Governor Kuroda offered more commitment to a 2-year timeframe in reaching the 2% inflation target. In his testimony to parliament, he said that the BoJ will do whatever it takes to defeat deflation, in particular targeting longer dated JGBs to push down the yields across the curve. Shanghai Composite is also underperforming relative to the regional indices, as PBoC signalled it is draining liquidity from the system for the 3rd consecutive week, offering CNY32B in 28-day repos. ***Currencies/Fixed Income/Commodities*** - (NZ) RBNZ Chief Economist McDermott: Monetary policy cannot influence the real exchange rate - (NZ) Declining fuel inflation attributed in large part to rising NZD - Dominion Post - USD/JPY traded around the 94 handlen the early part of the session before rising about 94.40 after comments from Gov Kuroda. ***Speakers/Political/In the Papers*** - (CY) Cyprus Central Bank: All banks to remain closed until Thurs, Mar 28th - (JP) Japan LDP may consider farm subsidies over TPP - Japanese press - (JP) Japan Fin Min Aso: Hopes BoJ will act in line with joint statement; PM Abe's policies have done better than expected - (CN) China Banking Regulatory Commission (CBRC): China banks domestic liability reaches CNY124.5T end-Feb - China press - (CN) China Jan-Feb fiscal Rev CNY2.24T +7.2%; fiscal spending CNY1.61T, +15.7% - Chinese press - (CN) China PBoC advisor Song Guoqing: Reiterates estimate for Mar CPI at 2% y/y - Chinese press - (CN) China International Capital Corp (CICC): Real estate expected to ease in the latter part of 2013 after a strong start in Jan-Feb - Shanghai Daily - (CN) Shanghai new home sales (ex-govt subsizied) fell 23.8% w/w last week to 300.9K sqm; new home prices +3.9% w/w to CNY23.4K/sqm - Uwin - (VN) China vessels said to have fired on Vietnam fishing boats - financial press - (KR) South Korea Construction Minister Suh: Does not expect the govt to artificially raise the price of homes - Korean press - (NZ) Drought conditions on the North Island in New Zealand continue to impact the local farming sector; Conditions said to be worse than in 2008 - NZ Herald - (NZ) RBNZ said to be proposing increased down payments for higher LVR (loan-value ratio) mortgage loans ahead of its updated macro-prudential regime - financial press - (VN) Vietnam Central Bank cuts repurchase rate by 50bps to 6.5% ***Equities*** - United Spirits UNSP.IN: Diageo said to be considering increasing offer price for United Spirits - financial press - Mazda 7261.JP: Affirms FY13/14 domestic production at 900K vehicles - Nikkei News - Hon Hai 2317.TW: Report FY12 Net profit NT$94.8B v NT$97.8Be; Rev NT$3.91T, +13% y/y - FUN.AU: Reports H1 Net A$9.3M v A$5.5M y/y, EBITDA A$14.7M v A$10.6M y/y, Rev A$87.0M v A$88.1M y/y - DELL: Discloses more details of Blackstone and Icahn offers; Blackstone offer valued at over $14.25/shr; CEO Dell said to be concerned Blackstone offer would dismantle company; sees plans inconsistent with strategy to reinvest in company - financial press - COP: Announces Second Oil Discovery in Deepwater Gulf of Mexico - INTU: Reports season to date TurbTax unit results; reiterates guidance - XEL: Updates 2013 Rate Case, Reduces Request for electricity rate increase - BHP: To launch approval process for A$10B floating LNG project offshore Scarborough in Mar - Australian press -
