After a fall of over 5% overnight that had critics crying foul over its recent rally, Nikkei225 recovered over 1.5% to trade back above 13,600. In the bond market, 10-year JGB yields remain contained below 0.9% with an orderly 2bp drop amid reports that Japanese banks have already reduced their JGB holdings to the lowest levels in nearly 2 years>. Most notably, the overall Abenomics criticized amid the freefall overnight received a much needed shot in the arm from the latest Japan inflation data, where the stripped-down and most recent Tokyo core component for the month of May showed its first on-year increase since the middle of 2011. USD/JPY, which had been on the defensive after a slightly weaker than expected US GDP report, rose to session high 101.20 after the release of Japanese inflation and also improved industrial production prints. Likewise, EUR/JPY came off the US session lows to trade up to 132 and AUD/JPY rose above the US session high to trade within an earshot of the 98 handle before succumbing to relative AUD weakness ahead of tomorrow's off-market-hour release of China Manufacturing PMI. ***Fixed Income/Commodities*** - (CN) PBoC sets yuan mid point at 6.1796 v 6.1309 prior close (record high setting for yuan) - (AU) Australia MOF (AOFM) sells A$700M in 2018 bonds, avg yield 2.82%; Bid-to-cover 4.93x - (JP) Bank of Japan (BoJ): Apr JGB holdings by major Japan banks are down 10.8% m/m; below 100T for the first time in nearly 2 years - financial press ***Speakers/Political/In the Papers*** - (JP) Japan Econ Min Amari: focusing on BOJ measures to achieve 2% inflation target in 2 years - (JP) Former BoE member Posen: Abenomics is right to have three pronged strategy; Fiscal policy is the most difficult component of Abe's "three arrows" - (JP) BOJ deputy gov Nirohi Nakaso: Important for BOJ to end deflation; Japan to hit its inflation target in latter half of projection period - (JP) Japan Fin Min Aso: Currently not mulling plans to delay sales tax increase - financial press - (JP) Japan PM Abe: To include use of nuclear power as part of the cabinet's growth strategy plan to be unveiled next week - Japanese press - (JP) Former Morgan Stanley economist Stephen Roach: Concerned Japan PM Abe and BOJ Gov Kuroda are resorting to "financial engineering" to fix economy; Investors concerned that if there is no follow through on structural reforms, then the program may not gain traction - CNBC - (JP) Japan's Financial Services Agency (FSA) aims to implement new FX margin trading rules designed to protect investors and limit scope for speculation - Japan press - (CN) China big four banks' May new yuan loans seen at CNY300B - Chinese press - (CN) China govt may allow county-level LGFV (Local Government Financing Vehicle) aggregate bond - Chinese press - (CN) Former World Bank chief economist Justin Lin: China growth will be driven by investment - Chinese press - (CN) China Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) spokesperson: Considering possibility of joining TPP talks ahead of the next round of negotiations next month - Shanghai Daily - (AU) Australia former PM Rudd: confirms he intends to contest election and would serve out a full term - (NZ) RBNZ Gov Wheeler: May take as long as 3-5 years to close the gap between housing supply and demand in Auckland if supply measures left alone - NZ press - (KR) Bank of Korea (BOK) Gov Kim: Withdrawal of monetary stimulus could significantly affect emerging markets; Fed should issue a warning before tightening policy - (TH) Thailand Commerce Ministry revises April exports growth to 2.89% from 10.5% prior at $17.4B - (UK) British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) raises economic outlook (1st raise since 2008); sees 2013 GDP at 0.9% vs 0.6% prior, 2014 GDP at 1.9% v 1.7% prior ***Equities*** - NFLX: To Join the NASDAQ-100 Index Beginning June 6, 2013 - KKD: Reports Q1 $0.20 v $0.16e, R$120.6M v $116Me; +10.5% afterhours >- GES: Reports Q1 $0.14 v $0.08e, R$549M v $543Me; +10.7% afterhours - LGF: Reports Q4 $0.61 (adj) v $0.45e, R$785M v $731Me; +3.9% afterhours - ESL: Reports Q2 $1.12 v $1.21e, R$499.6M v $506Me, lowers outlook; -1.9% afterhours - MYE.AU: Lowers FY forecast NPAT A$11.1-11.6M v A$12-13M prior, Rev A$245-250M v A$245-255M prior due to uncertainty on project timing - ORG.AU: CEO cautions on possibile difficulties facing Australia coal industry - Australian press - YAL.AU: Exec: Plans to reduce costs by an additional 11% in 2013; reaffirms production targets - AGM comments - TEPCO 9501.JP: President confirms earlier reports of 600B request from the govt - JAL 9201.JP: President: Reservations for flights on Dreamliner 787 for June are solid - Nikkei News - Komatsu 6301.JP: President: Does not plan to alter price policy despite weaker JPY; Sales volume in China is on par with last April, decline has stopped - Nikkei News interview - Sony 6758.JP CEO: premature to speculate about board decision on spin off of assets; going to take time to objectively consider the Loeb plan - CNBC interview - Source
