China GDP: A Massaging of the Figures?
Syd 04:18 GMT 04/16/2014
China’s GDP growth fell in the first quarter to its slowest pace since September of 2012, slipping to 7.4% on-year growth from 7.7% the in the fourth quarter. The increase was slightly higher than economists’ expectations of a 7.3% gain.

Authorities released other data that suggested continuing weakness, but not at a quickening pace. Industrial production grew 8.8% on year in March below expectations of 9% but up from an average 8.6% expansion in January and February, combined to limit distortions from the Lunar New Year holidays. Retail sales were 12.2% higher on-year in March, up from 11.8% growth in January and February.

Fixed-asset investment, meanwhile, slipped to 17.6% on year in the first quarter from 17.9% growth in the first two months.

Some economists saw a massaging of the GDP figures. Others said the data showed a slight recovery in March. (Comments edited slightly for style):

China growth slows but beats expectations
Syd 03:26 GMT 04/16/2014
China’s expansion slowed to the weakest pace in six quarters, testing leaders’ commitment to keep reining in a credit boom and pollution as risks mount of missing a 7.5 per cent annual growth target.

Gross domestic product rose 7.4 per cent in the January -to- March period from a year earlier, the National Bureau of Statistics said today in Beijing, compared with the 7.3 per cent median estimate in a Bloomberg News survey of analysts. Industrial production increased 8.8 per cent in March, less than projected, while first-quarter fixed-asset investment trailed estimates.

An extended slowdown would put pressure on Premier Li Keqiang to add stimulus or ease up on efforts to curb financial risks and property-price gains after this month outlining spending and tax relief to support growth. A weaker Chinese economy would limit a pickup in global expansion forecast by the International Monetary Fund and restrain demand for commodities including copper and iron ore.

Intra-Day Market Moving News and Views GPB/USD

16 Apr 2014 02:21GMT

GBP/USD - 1.6721.. We mentioned in y'day's update short-term specs sold the pound in Asia in anticipation of a soft U.K. inflation number, European traders did the same when they entered the market n when CPI came out at a 4-year low of 1.6% as per market consensus, cable staged a ferocious rebound fm 1.6657 (Reuters) to as high as 1.6731 on broad-based short-covering/profit-taking (depending where you had ended there trade !), pric later ratcheted higher to session high of 1.6749 b4 retreating.

The intra-day sideways move despite y'day's strg rebound suggests Asian players are respecting the Tue's high print as offers were reported at 1.6745/55 with stops abv there, however, more selling interest is noted at 1.6780/90. On the downside, some bids are reported at 1.6710-00 n more below, so range trading is expected ahead of another batch of U.K. jobs data.

Pay attention to U.K. jobless claims, employment change & the unemployment rate at 08:30GMT, the employment change data is probably the more important figure to watch, street forecast is looking for an increase of 90k vs previous reading of 105k, if the increase falls short of expectation, then expect (pun intended) another round of sterling bashing to come in.

Fed's Kocherlakota says 'we need to do a better job of letting people know "the Fed has economy's back; we can afford to stay accommodative as the recovery proceeds; I expect interest rates to rise gradually as recovery continue; If we see inflation rise rapidly, will raises rates rapidly in response; I am fully committed to doing whatever it takes to keep inflation, because of tools at Feds' disposal; a lot of unemployment is cyclical, and can be affected by monetary policy.'

The latest month of TIC data showed China’s holdings of Treasurys decreased by $2.7 billion in February, while Japanese holdings increased by $9.1 billion. Altogether, foreign official and private accounts bought $92.5 billion in Treasurys in February, the most in nearly two-and-a-half years. Some strategists suggested the large increase stems from a flight to quality securities as the conflict between Ukraine and Russia ramped up

the best price you could have bought audyen yesterday in asia was around 95.60 and its moved back to test ard 95.50 after dropping overnight.

so I have a hard time thinking it's going to rally much today .. once Asia comes in past 50-65 .. which would be a good guide as to bullish vs bearish going forward.

once again my bot is selling out what it bought lower in $yen and its gone short again.

Hard to trade this one as there are so many weirdos involved and so many hidden agendas. Not least of which is Soros's mega put on the U.S. stock market.

"The takeaway is this: the Ukraine bloc owes the EU banks anywhere from $540 to $760 billion, depending on how you measure it. And the EU banks and large parts of its economy as a whole financed this loan by essentially borrowing all of it from Russia. If the West tried to clamp down on or seize Russian official assets or private flight capital, or if it otherwise took actions that destabilized the ability of these countries to service their debts, the losers would be in Kiev, Vienna, Milan, and Frankfurt—and not in Moscow."

It is in response to this report that pressure on the ECB to ease has been mounting.

First, you need to look at the Ukrainian history. U.S. along with some EU countries, to promote nationalism to Ukraine. Russians will not tolerate fascists to historical territory. Certainly no one wants to international conflict .. but starts to shoot to the Russians, so it's more serious than you think. Or will divided Ukraine to the east and west and will continue the cold war (Russia, China, India) against the West, or the conflict spreads ..
