Intra-Day Market Moving News and Views
18 Dec 2014

USD/JPY ......Earlier, the recent announcement of a major overhaul in Japan's GPIF pushed the Nikkei to a 7-year high of 18030 Dec.
A piece of news from WSJ worth noting. The WSJ reported Japan's $1.1 tln GPIF should be managed by a board of directors rather than a president, as is currently the case, a panel of outside experts has concluded.
At the urging of PM Shinzo Abe, the GPIF has changed its investment philosophy, becoming more sophisticated and aggressive.
It has hired a new chief investment officer, n said in Oct that it would drastically reallocate its conservative portfolio. Mr. Abe has made overhauling the GPIF a key goal as part of his efforts to putting Japan back on a path to long-term growth. Now the task is to revamp its management structure.

The panel held its sixth n final meeting Wed, but despite 12 hours of debate in the past couple of months remained divided on issues such as whether the chief executive officer should sit on the board.
Perhaps it shouldn't come as a surprise that the group has differed on some issues.
Welfare Minister Yasuhisa Shiozaki, an Abe appointee n a staunch advocate of an aggressive overhaul of the fund's management, pushed hard for the group to be formed, n some of its members have expressed views similar to his.
But bureaucrats at the health ministry, which oversees the GPIF, argued that the group should include more cautious voices. The group will present its ideas to the health ministry panel for further discussion, n eventually the ministry will draft a law to submit to parliament.

This morning the greenback rallied against the Japanese yen on Wednesday after the widely expected comments fm Fed's Chair Janet Yellen who altered a pledge to keep interest rates near zero for a "considerable time" but signalled it was on track to raise interest rates next year.
However, the Fed's statement showed it was unlikely to hike rates for "at least a couple of meetings," meaning April of next year at the earliest.
U.S. dollar rose to 118.90 near New York close n then extended the rally to 119.01 in Tokyo morning due to the more than 400 points or 2% rise in Nikkei-225 index, however, profit-taking at 119.00 level capped dlr's upside somewhat n price retreated briefly to around 118.57.

Intra-Day Market Moving News and Views

18 Dec 2014 02:40GMT
GBP/USD - ...... Cable is nursing yesterdays sharp losses in quiet Asian trading on Thursday after o/n sell off below December's 1.5541 low to a fresh 14-1/2 month trough of 1.5530 after Fed Chair Yellen's hawkish remarks at the post-FOMC press conference.
Despite tripping stops in a rather illiquid late NY session, short covering quickly lifted the pound once the sell stops were done.
Price briefly bounced to 1.5603 n then moved narrowly in Australia. Asian traders are happy to stay on the sideline until European open.

Looks like Wednesday's low print would continue to hold until release of key U.K. retail sales data at 09:30GMT. Street forecasts are looking for a weakish Novmeber number with M/M to be 0.3% vs previous reading of +0.8% whilst Y/Y figure is expected to be 4.4% vs previous reading of 4.3%.
If both readings come in weaker than forecast, one can expect another round of pound bashing.
Until then, offers are noted at 1.5600/10 and more above with stops reported above 1.5630.
Initial bids are noted at 1.5505-00 with some stops below there.

Thursday will see the release of New Zealand's GDP, Australia's RBA Bulletin, China's House Prices, Switzerland's Trade, Germany's IFO Business Climates, IFO Current Conditions, IFO Expectations, U.K.'s Retail sales, U.S. Markit Service PMI, Jobless Claims and Philly Fed Business and Leading index change. Japan's BoJ will begin its 2-day meeting.

DJ Fed's Yellen Says No Rate Hike Likely For a Couple of Fed Meetings
Syd 20:40 GMT 12/17/2014
WASHINGTON-- Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen said Wednesday the U.S. central bank is unlikely to raise short-term interest rates until at least the spring.

"The committee considers it unlikely to begin the normalization process for at least the next couple of meetings," Ms. Yellen said at a press conference following the U.S. central bank's latest monetary policy meeting. She added, "this assessment, of course, is completely data dependent."

Ms. Yellen was speaking in the wake of a Fed meeting that saw officials continue to edge toward lifting interest rates off of near zero levels that have been in place since the end of 2008. The Fed said in its statement that it will be patient about the timing of rate rises.

While some regional Fed officials would like to see rate increases begin in the spring, key central bankers such as New York Fed President William Dudley , who have suggested the middle of the year is the most likely time for the Fed to act, as long as the economy develops along the path expected by policymakers.

"A number of committee participants have indicated that in their view, conditions could be appropriate by the middle of next year, but there is no preset time and there are a range of views as to when the appropriate conditions will likely fall in place," Ms. Yellen said.

The Fed chief's comments were consistent with the outlook held by Mr. Dudley. Ms. Yellen also pushed back against those who believe the Fed can only make a big policy shift at one of the four meetings, out of eight, that are followed by a press conference.

"Every meeting that we have is a live meeting at which the committee could make a policy decision and we will feel free to do so," Ms. Yellen said. "I would really like to strongly discourage the expectation that policy moves can only occur when there's a scheduled press conference," she said.

Ms. Yellen's contention addresses a fear given voice to by St. Louis Fed leader James Bullard . He has expressed concern about how the logistics of Fed policy meetings were shaping the monetary policy outlook. Mr. Bullard has worried broad market expectations of a summer 2015 rate increase were being driven largely by the fact that the June Fed meeting was the only gathering with a press conference.
