Even with today's decline, the Nikkei225 is set to end the week up by nearly 5%. The USD continued to trade right below the 100 level. China stocks were relatively unchanged as investors were cautious ahead of Chinese economic data due out on Monday. Concern over the property market, and the overall worries about the recovery, have weighed on investor sentiment for the week. South Korea's Kospi was down over 0.4% mainly due to the continued tensions with North Korea, but also the strong Korean won has hurt harming sentiment. ***Fixed Income/Commodities*** - (CN) PBoC sets yuan mid point at 6.2506 v 6.1963 prior close (highest level since 2005 revaluation) - (JP) Japan BoJ to purchase 1.5T in Treasury Bills outright on Tuesday Apr 16th - financial press - (AU) Australia MoF (AOFM) sells A$600M in 2015 Bonds; Avg yield 2.8012%; Bid-to-cover 4.12x - (CN) China Finance Ministry sells 9-month bills at 98.0156 - (MY) Malaysia sells 2033 Bonds; avg yield: 3.844%; bid-to-cover: 2.9x ***Speakers/Political/In the Papers*** - (KR) South Korea Pres Park will attempt to resume dialogue with North Korea - Korean press - (KR) China Defense Min: have not seen a buildup of troops long North Korea boarder - financial press - (KR) US Pentagon spokesperson: It is not correct to state North Korea has nuclear missile ability - financial press - (JP) Japan may relax rules regarding the halting of JGB futures trading - Japanese press - (JP) According to Nikkei News 80% of big retailers forecast higher FY13 sales, profits - (JP) Japan BOJ Gov Kuroda: Reiterates will do whatever is necessary to defeat deflation - press conference - (JP) US to maintain automobile tariffs under prelim TPP deal with Japan - Nikkei News - (JP) US Govt approves Japan participation in Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) free-trade discussions, as expected - Japanese press >- (JP) BoJ purchased 2.51T in JGBs across the curve in today's bond buying operation (as indicated) - US financial press - (AU) Australia Debt Agency (AOFM) sees no rush of Japanese inflows as yet - financial press - (AU) Australia PM Gillard: AUD strength new normal; Budget to move to surplus over time; Budget allows scope for rate cut - financial press - (HK) Hong Kong will not withdraw property curbs over the next six months - financial press - (HK) Hong Kong forecasts 13.6k private homes to be completed in 2013, 2014 at 15.8k - financial press >- (HK) Hong Kong new apartment supply expected to increase 16.8% y/y in 2014 - HK press - (CN) Beijing Mar Existing Home Sales m/m: +332%; y/y: +294% - Centaline - (CN) China Q1 rail investment +28% y/y - Chinese press - (SG) Singapore Central Bank (MAS): To maintain policy unchanged, allow for gains in SGD - (NZ) Economists at ASB Bank said the strength in the Kiwi could cause the RBNZ to not raise rates until 2014 - financial press - (NZ) RBNZ creates new macro financial department, reflects emphasis on macro financial stability - (US) IMF Draft report: Lowers forecast for US 2013 GDP to 1.7% from 2.0% prior - (EU) S&P Capital Goods Industry Report Card: Chance of European recession to last into 2014 lowered to 33% from 40% prior ***Equities*** - Evergrande Real Estate Group 3333.HK: To raise home prices by 2-10% - Chinese press - Mitsui Mining 5706.JP: May report FY13 Pretax 17B, Rev 410B - Nikkei News - Marubeni 8002.JP: To begin shipping US shale gas to South Korea - Japanese press - Nissan NSANY: Planning to delay transfer of production of some vehicles from the Japan to the US due to recent Yen decline - Japan press - XOM: To remove Pegagsus pipeline segment this week; +0.1% afterhours - WLT: Provides prelim Q1 Op Results: expects to report metallurgical coal sales volume at 2.8M tons, +9% q/q, and prices expected to improve slightly; +6.3% afterhours - C: Brazil banks such as Itau, Bradesco and Santander said to be bidding for credit cards and financing segments of Citi's Brazilian units; +0.2% afterhours - LLY: Said to be conducting layoffs of 30% of sales workforce (1K positions); will add about 300 sales positions for diabetes drugs - financial press; +0.4% afterhours - WY: Increases quarterly dividend 18% to $0.20 from $0.17/shr; -0.4% afterhours - HRS: Reports prelim Q3 $1.12 v $1.26e, R$1.20B v $1.33Be, Cuts FY13 forecast; -7.4% afterhours >- JBHT: Reports Q1 $0.61 v $0.64e, R$1.29B v $1.28Be; -2.8% afterhours - GPS: Reports Mar SSS -1% v -1.8%e; +0.2% afterhours -
