| | Email Asian Market Update: Equities continue to surge on dovish Yellen comments as Senate confirmation hearings yield little surprise - Source

- Nikkei225 and Shanghai Composite saw another session of hefty gains in the wake of the increasingly apparent "Yellen put" as the Fed chair nominee stuck to a familiar dovish script during her Senate Banking Committee testimony - prioritizing supporting economy as long as unemployment is elevated and inflation is low. Nikkei225 built on its gains above the psychological 15,000 mark - the highest since May. Shanghai Composite hit a 1-week high above 2,150, rising for the 2nd consecutive day despite continued tightening in the money markets following a more hands-off approach by the PBoC. - Yen weakness was more apparent after a technical break above the 100 level in USD/JPY. Analysts pointed to surprising comments from Fin Min Aso overnight that Japan is open to more intervention if the currency moves become one-sided to have sparked more pronounced yen selling. Econ Min Amari attempted to backtrack from the those remarks earlier today, noting it was not appropriate for cabinet members to make yen-linked comments, with Tokyo facing increasing scrutiny this week from the likes of the US auto industry in rigging favorable conditions through exchange rate means. ***Economic Data*** - (SG) SINGAPORE SEPT RETAIL SALES M/M: 0.5% V 1.0%E; Y/Y: -5.9% V -4.4%E; RETAIL SALES EX-AUTO Y/Y: -0.3% V 1.8%E - (KR) South Korea Sept Conference Board Leading Economic Index m/m: +0.6% v +0.3% prior ***Fixed Income/Commodities/Currencies*** - (CN) Daily Shibor fixings: O/N: 4.4540% v 4.1880% prior (3rd consecutive rise, highest since Oct 30th); 1-week: 5.3110% v 4.1930% prior(3rd consecutive rise, highest since Oct 29th) - (JP) BOJ offers to buy 110B in JGB with maturity less than 1-yr, 250B in 1-3yr JGB and 350B in 3-5yr JGB - (AU) Australia MoF (AOFM) sells A$800M in 6.0% 2017 Bonds; avg yield: 3.0545%; bid-to-cover: 3.89x - (US) Weekly Fed Balance Sheet Assets Week ending Nov 13th: $3.864T (record high) v $3.808T prior; M1 y/y change: 8.5% v 8.8% w/w; M2 y/y change: 6.5% v 6.6% w/w - SLV: iShares Silver Trust ETF daily holdings fall to 10,392 tonnes (3-week low) from 10,443 tonnes - (CN) China National Energy Administration (NEA): China Oct power consumption 437.5B kwh v 444.8B kwh m/m, +9.5% y/y - (CN) China National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) confirms it will cut fuel prices: Diesel by CNY155/ton and gasoline by CNY160/ton (3rd consecutive cut) - update - Risk-on sentiment is reflected by more strength in high-beta currencies AUD and NZD at the expense of the familiar funding choice of JPY and, increasingly, EUR. AUD/USD is up nearly 50pips around 93.50, NZD/USD up 30pips above 0.8290, while AUD/JPY and NZD/JPY crosses are up 60 and 50 pips respectively above 93.70 and 83.10. USD/JPY briefly retreated on Amari comments but remains well bid above the 100 yen handle - having broken out of a 4-month-long pennant overnight. EUR/AUD cross is down about 60pips below 1.4390. ***Speakers/Political/In the Papers*** - (CN) Fitch: implementation is key for China long-term reform; Recent announcements could lay the groundwork for measures that help rebalance the economy and limit the build-up of further stresses on the sovereign credit profile.
