| | Email Asian Market Update: China escalates tensions around disputed islands just as Iran reaches nuclear agreement to ease sanctions - Source

- Significant geopolitical developments spanning from the Middle East to the East China Sea were in the spotlight over the weekend, influencing the morning trading session in Asia. Beijing amplified nationalist sentiment, declaring an East China Sea area that includes the disputed Senkaku islands as the "air defense identification zone". Under the guidelines issued by the Defense Ministry, all planes entering the area must follow identification rules or risk intervention by the military jets. Japan's foreign ministry quickly responded, denouncing the measures with a formal protest to the minister at the Chinese Embassy in Japan. US Defense Dept and State Dept officials were also vocally opposed to China's move, vowing to protect its regional security partners. China defense stocks are trading higher, with some focus also falling on Japanese exporters potentially suffering from escalated trade tensions. - Iran foreign ministry and P5+1 reached a nuclear deal late on Saturday. As part of the agreement, Iran would receive $4.2B in foreign exchange and face less onerous sanctions on gold, petrochemicals and auto industries. In exchange, Tehran has to halt uranium enrichment above 5% and also cease installing any additional centrifuges or risk more sanctions. Ministers involved in brokering the deal cheered the breakthrough accord for its regional security potential, while Israel called it a "historic mistake" and declared that it would not be bound by its provisions. US Pres Obama reached out to Israeli PM Netanyahu, just as WTI crude oil prices fell over $1 below $93.80/brl. ***Economic Data*** - (VN) Vietnam Nov Consumer Price Index (CPI) M/M: Y/Y: 5.8% v 5.9% prior (lowest since Aug 2012) - (SG) SINGAPORE OCT CPI M/M: 0.2% V 0.3%E; Y/Y: 2.0% V 2.2%E ***Fixed Income/Commodities/Currencies*** - (JP) BOJ offers to buy 250B in 1-3yr JGBs, 300B in 3-5yr JGBs, and 400B in 5-10yr JGBs - (KR) South Korea MOF sells 20-yr govt bonds, avg yield 3.865% - SLV: iShares Silver Trust ETF daily holdings rise to 10,360 tonnes (lowest level since 10,284 on Jul 23rd) from 10,404 tonnes - GLD: SPDR Gold Trust ETF daily holdings fall 4.5 tonnes to 852.2 tonnes (lowest since Feb 2009) - AUD and JPY are being aggressively sold against the greenback, with the respective technical breakdowns to multi-month lows accelerating the response to recent fundamentals of jawboning by the RBA and continued dovish stance at the BOJ.
