Fed's Bullard suggestion to continue bond purchases unlikely to gain traction

Quotes from Standard Chartered:

-Turning to our expectation for the 28-29 October FOMC meeting, we do not think that James Bullard's suggestion to continue bond purchases, rather than cease them as the Fed had previously telegraphed, will gain traction.

-QE tapering will probably come to an end as expected and we do not foresee any dissention among the doves. Bullard does not vote on the FOMC this year, but we cannot rule out the possibility of a "dissenting statement" to be released shortly after the meeting, a practice increasingly common among dissatisfied non-voters.

Intra-Day Market Moving News and Views

20 Oct 2014 08:43GMT

USD/JPY - ...... BoJ Nagoya branch manager was quoted saying 'many firms in Tokai central Japan region feel rapid fx moves, whether it's yen rise or fall, are undesirable; hard to judge now how recent choppy yen moves affect economy in Tokai region.'

Earlier, comments by Japan's junior coalition party Komeito official, quote:
don't expect gov't to resort to FX manipulation to correct yen weakening; excessive yen weakness wud be unwelcome, nagtive eefects emerging in economy; extra budget needed to deal with stalling economy regardless of decision on next sales tax hike.

Dlr finally pares intra-day gain after opening high abv Fri's 106.95 top to 107.27 in NZ, then climbing to session high of 107.39 in Tokyo as a sharp rally in the Nikkei boosted risk sentiment (Nikke closed up by 578 points at 15111). However, present retreat in the Nikkei futures in Europe (down 80 points at 14040) triggered broad-based buying of yen, price retreated to 107.05, suggesting sideways trading is in store.
Offers are tipped at 107.30/40 n more abv with stops abv 107.50. Initial bids are noted at 107.00/106.90 with some stops below there, however, more buying interest is touted at 106.70/60, suggesting buying dlr on dips is still favoured.

Williams Says Fed Faces Greater Downside Risks -- Market Talk
Syd 06:06 GMT 10/20/2014
The Federal Reserve has said it believes the risks to the economic outlook are generally balanced. But recent experience clearly makes some policy makers more worried about a renewed deterioration in economic growth than some sudden boom. San Francisco Fed President John Williams said in an interview: "The risks are somewhat asymmetric. Not only are there downside risks that are obvious and we're thinking about them a lot, but they are also asymmetric because of the zero lower bound [referring to short-term nominal interest rates being at or near zero]. I take the downside risk very seriously and I think about them very carefully in thinking about the appropriate time for liftoff."

American Businesses Are Worried About Europe, Again -- Market Talk
Syd 05:58 GMT 10/20/2014
Faltering growth, double-digit unemployment and a looming threat of deflation in Europe are causing American businesses to worry--again--about the eurozone's economic woes. According to a survey of corporate economists released Monday by the National Association for Business Economics, 51% of respondents believed the eurozone slowdown would have a "significant" or "minor" negative impact on their businesses. It found that 46% of respondents thought Europe's woes would have no impact, and 3% thought it would have a "minor" positive effect.

john 16:19 re "One problem this week was that recent government regulations, which were well-intended but not well thought out, removed needed liquidity from the markets..."
Lack of liquidity ... a very very important notion, impressive market reaction to it when players become suddenly gripped by it. The fact that "they" sent out Bullard speaks volumes about many things, not least how fragile and dependent not only the market but the entire US bubble economy is on the QE teet. MSM was quick with assuaging messages of how the correction was necessary and good and that now is yet again time to stop the panic and buy again.

The current rout in oil pricing has been variously bandied about as a political effort to injure Putin to prediction of darkening global economic prospects. But the price rout is not limited to just crude: other commodities are undergoing similar dynamic. FED's overdue tightening of the liquidity tap is bound to reveal the extent of mal-investments .

Me thinks you have touched a very important fundamental point. Odds are we will see a lot more of blood-letting induced by FED's policies - presenting some good profit generating trading opportunities.

Intra-Day Market Moving News and Views

20 Oct 2014

USD/JPY .......Statement at a quarterly meeting of the central bank's regional branch managers BoJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said, quote:
-Japan's economy continues to recover moderately as a trend
- effect of sales tax hike on economy likely to gradually ease
-Japan banking system maintaining stability
-QQE exerting intended effects
-BOJ will maintain qqe for as long as needed to achieve 2 pct inflation in stable manner
-BOJ will adjust policy as needed, looking at upside, downside risks to economy, prices
-some weakness seen in output

The main driver of today's gap-up open on the dlr in NZ was a w/end report by Bloomberg citing source from the Nikkei.

Bloomberg reported Japan's $ 1.2 tln retirement fund will increase its allocation target for shares to about 25% from 12%, the Nikkei newspaper reported today without attribution.

Nikkei also said GPIF will also boost its holdings of foreign bonds n stocks to about a combined 30% from 23%, while reducing domestic notes to the 40% level from 60%.

Takatoshi Ito, a member of the panel said that the GPIF would be "stupid? to announce its new investment strategy before adjusting asset allocations. Publishing targeted weightings in advance would move markets, forcing the fund to buy at highs and sell at lows, he said in an interview on Oct. 14.

The fund's asset review could come as late as December, as GPIF officials, members of its investment committee n the health ministry have different views on the best timing and approach, Ito said.

Yellen herself created the inequality about which she is supposed to be worried ;
PAR 19:17 GMT 10/19/2014
A second area in which monetary policy interacts with inequality ó and which Ms. Yellen also leaves unaddressed ó is the role of the Fedís easy money policies in encouraging inequality.

For the last five years of economic expansion, Congress has been unwilling to use fiscal policy to try to encourage faster growth. That has left the Fed as the only game in town, and the Bernanke Fed again and again turned to quantitative easing and ultralow interest rate policies to try to shock the economy into speedier expansion. (Ms. Yellen was the No. 2 official at the Fed for most of this time, and helped engineer the policies).

But this has contributed to an imbalanced form of growth in the United States. Many of the first-order effects of the Fedís bond buying have been, for example, to drive up the stock market and to help lower mortgage rates. Because stocks are disproportionately owned by the wealthy and the upper middle class have been in best position to refinance their mortgages, the benefits of Fed policy for middle and low-income workers have been more indirect.
