Bolton leaves his successor in a special situation
By Andrew Hill
Last updated: May 15 2007 19:40
The grizzled skipper hangs up his cap and hands the helm to the ship’s youthful new master. But just before leaving the bridge, the old sea-dog grabs the tannoy and makes an announcement to the passengers: “Batten down the hatches! We’re heading into the teeth of a terrible storm! Over and out.” Do you lash yourself to the mast and hope for the best or head for the lifeboats?

Anthony Bolton – who has piloted Fidelity’s £3.3bn Special Situations Fund since 1979 and reeled in an annualised return of more than 20 per cent – could have plotted a more promising first voyage for his successor, Sanjeev Shah, on Monday night. Having anointed Mr Shah, the veteran fund manager warned that the scarcity of cheap stocks “spells danger”. Given the middling performance of Jorma Korhonen since last September, when Mr Bolton picked the little-known Finn to run the other chunk of his fund
UK Fund Manager Bolton Warns On Stocks - FT


Some warnings about exuberance in global stock markts with Anthony Bolton, UK's most feted fund manager, apparently firing off message of doom and gloom as parting shot to industry; Financial Times quotes him as saying, at dinner marking appointment of Sanjeev Shah as his successor to manage Fidelity's flagship Special Situations fund, he's fearful of stock market slump. "We've got a bull market that is four years old now. I find it difficult to find cheap shares. The low risk and high risk (shares) have gone up together. That spells danger. You are seeing mergers and acquisitions tittle tattle that makes me concerned." Views closely watched by financial advisers and rival investment professionals, not least because Bolton has displayed canny ability in past for predicting stock market corrections, FT adds

So far looks like we may repeat another great buy on dip day for EUR/USD and GBP/USD. In that case will add-on to the longs and take profit slices at hot zones. All reactions on EUR/JPY to the downside will see 2-way flows again so will prepare to hammer that one as well.

New Zealand policymakers have again raised the possibility of fresh measures to cool the country's overheated housing market, but lack of consensus on the best course of action and likely resistance by the opposition means new tightening steps are unlikely in the near term.

New Zealand Finance Minister Michael Cullen and Reserve Bank of New Zealand Governor Alan Bollard are "eager to have some form of prescriptive solution" in case the property boom continues unabated, a senior policy adviser in a government department, who declined to be named, told Dow Jones Newswires
The policy adviser said the government doesn't want to see the current interest-rate tightening cycle extend into 2008; "they want to have a tool ready to use if housing market inflation persists," he said.

"Dr Bollard has been quite at pains to stress the risks of a housing boom that goes on seemingly without end...apart from the inflation problem there's the huge debt that people are accumulating and that's not healthy for the economy," the adviser said.

At 7.75%, the country's benchmark policy rate is the highest in the developed world after Iceland, a key driver behind the New Zealand dollar. The currency rallied to a post-float peak of US$0.7493 last month, further hobbling the country's export sector. Bollard said last week the bank is considering bringing forward Basel II capital adequacy rules, due to be implemented in January, which effectively increase the cash reserves commercial banks are required to hold. Bollard hopes the stringent rules would help to rein in credit growth and curb demand for housing. censored

USDJPY has completed a 50% retracement from 1.9997 to 1.9645. The down wave was in 5 yet it may merely be the final in a wave c/4 from the 2.0133 high. Since the leg up looks impulsive to the retrace it is looking indeterminate in direction (for me). However for the yen i am more inclined to see imminant signs of exhaustion/uncertainty. We are at the top of a comfortable range that seems to be getting too comfortable. I think signs of second wave tremours are going to shake things up again shortly cary trade or not.

hello. returning with a slight back wash of a position. See that some continued yen persistance is occuring. The gbyjpy has now gotten stalled at the 76.4% retrace . Not a healthy sign yet not a confirmation or a resumption of trend. Similarly the stock parkets have proceeded on an intraday scale in making (over the past 5 trading sessions) lower lows and lower highs with 5 wave subsequences. Not quite ready to raise the flag on this one. gdgt

The selling of low-yield currencies such as the Swiss franc and Japanese yen look extremely dangerous at current levels. Similarly, borrowing in yen and Swiss currencies is also very risky given the risk of a sharp adjustment in carry trades.

Referring to my previous view on TIC to be lower than forecast is still valid into next months, given the following change in US bonds buying from abroad.

BEIJING -- The central bank said yesterday that the country will not sell large amounts of U.S. dollar-denominated assets to diversify its foreign exchange reserves.

The People's Bank of China also warned of a risk of rising inflation and a rebound in investment as the economy steamed ahead in the first quarter, growing by 11.1 percent year on year.

Authorities have said the country will diversify part of its foreign exchange reserves, which amounted to $1.02 trillion by the end of March and are believed to be invested mainly in dollar bonds.

The central bank said it will mainly address the issue of newly added reserves by widening the foreign currency investment channel and reaffirmed the importance of its U.S. dollar-denominated assets. They will remain an important part of China's outbound investment, the bank said in its monetary policy report for the first quarter, which was published on its website yesterday.

The bank also said it would keep the yuan basically stable at a reasonable level.

The bank warned in the report that the country faced the risk of inflation and of a rebound in investment, and that it must prevent the economy from overheating.

In the first quarter, urban fixed asset investment grew by 25.3 percent year on year, 0.9 percentage points faster than in the first two months. Meanwhile, the consumer price index rose by 2.7 percent year on year, but in March the index grew by 3.3 percent, bypassing the alarm level of 3 percent set by the central bank.

In another development, the State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE) announced yesterday that the country's current account surplus hit $249.9 billion last year, an increase of 55 percent over the 2005 level of $160.8 billion.

The jump came mainly from the increase in the trade of goods, which reached $217.7 billion, up 62 percent year on year, the foreign exchange regulator said on its website.

The surplus in the country's capital and financial account reached $10 billion, down 84 percent. The SAFE attributed the fall to the strong growth in outbound securities investment.

It gave no figures for last year's overall balance of payments surplus.

U.S. chain store sales rose 2.5% in the first week of May compared with the previous month, according to Redbook Research's latest indicator of national retail sales released Tuesday.

The rise of the index was above the targeted 2.2% increase, according to the report.
The Johnson Redbook Index also showed seasonally adjusted sales in the one-week period rose 2.7% compared with May 2006, above the targeted 2.3% gain.

Redbook said on an unadjusted basis, sales in the week ended May 12 were up 2.7% from the same week in 2006.

Should stay above 663 to keep the bullish tone.
Going under we get probably a nice long term short signal or at least a short from 663 to 632 which is the next supportive area.

Overall consumer inflation was up 2.6% from a year ago. The core CPI was up just 2.3% compared to a year ago, down 0.2 percentage point from March and the slowest annual pace since April 2006, when it was also 2.3%.

The figures support the prevailing view among economists that Federal Reserve officials will keep official interest rates unchanged when they meet late next month.

"If you want to get some idea of what much of the Earth might look like in 50 years’ time then, says James Lovelock, get hold of a powerful telescope or log onto Nasa’s Mars website. That arid, empty, lifeless landscape is, he believes, how most of Earth’s equatorial lands will be looking by 2050. A few decades later and that same uninhabitable desert will have extended into Spain, Italy, Australia and much of the southern United States.
“We are on the edge of the greatest die-off humanity has ever seen,” said Lovelock. “We will be lucky if 20% of us survive what is coming. We should be scared stiff.”

Highlights

Japan machinery orders for March at -4.5%m/m, worse than expectation of +1.3%. It came in-5.8%y/y. April-June core machinery orders forecast at -11.8%.

Japan Govt downgrades its assessment on machinery orders, saying the machinery orders remain somewhat weak.

Some rumours that Moody's may upgrade Japan's sovereign rating - unconfirmed (S&P upgraded Japan on Apr23)

MoF Koji Omi says G8 will discuss global economy and activities of hedge fund. No particular emphasis in mind for topic for G8 discussions. (G8 on May 18-19 in Potsdam, Germany)

Economics Minister Hiroko Ota says somewhat concerned at the April-June machinery orders forecast drop of -11.8%q/q. Capex trend remains relatively firm, as can be seen in BoJ tankan.

WSJ: Thomson Corp. could announce as early as today that it has agreed to acquire Reuters Group PLC for about GBP8.7b ($17.24b) in cash and stock, a combination that would unite the second- and third-largest providers of financial news and data, behind Bloomberg.

UK RICS house price balance +28.9 in 3 months to April, its fastest rate this year, up from revised 26.9 in 3 months to March.

World Bank Panel says World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz's handling of his companion promotion violated the terms of his contract, and his involvement represents a conflict of interest.

New York Times: IAEA concluded Iran appears to have solved most of its technological problems and is beginning to enrich uranium on a far larger scale than before. The inspectors found that Iranian engineers were already using roughly 1,300 centrifuges and were producing fuel suitable for nuclear reactors.

Relatively quiet day, as focus turns to both US and UK CPI due today for any "softish" data that could tilt odds to a Fed rate cut from current Fed Funds of 5.25% and a BoE MPC pause at 5.50%.

Focus remains on the continued speculation of when the "actual and huge" USD/JPY selling for the huge quarterly US Treasury coupons of $20.4bln and redemption of $65.87 due today, May 15 will hit the markets. Market players were cautious ahead of today's go-to-bi Nakane, also on May 15, on any huge selloff and 2-way interest.

USD/JPY rose initially to hit 2 and half month highs of 120.54 from 120.35 after the sharp -4.5% fall in Japan machinery orders, but ran into options related, China, Taiwan, Asian acccounts Japan exporters/ carmakers selling from 120.50-60, capping topside.

It dipped to day lows of 120.31 as Japan trust/lifers sold - some talks for repatriation, and also on PBoC comments on fast CNY rise now, and weighed by rumours of Moody's upgrade of Japan - though no details.

today, with other data, we have TIC - Treasury International Capital

Definition
These Treasury data track the flows of financial instruments into and out of the United States. Instruments tracked include Treasury securities, agency securities, corporate bonds, and corporate equities.

Why Do Investors Care?
TIC data have been issued for the past 30 years, but only recently, due to an enormous rise in foreign participation in our markets, have they grabbed the attention of the international financial markets. Although methodologically limited, TIC offers a measure of foreign demand for our debt and assets. Bonds and the dollar are most sensitive to the data, therefore bond and foreign exchange markets are more likely to react to this report than the equity market.

Strong inflows (demand for U.S. securities) are needed to keep downward pressure on interest rates. Strong inflows also underpin the value of the dollar since foreigners must purchase dollars in order to buy our securities. A strong dollar helps to maintain stability in all U.S. financial markets. Since foreign ownership of U.S. equities is comparatively small, the equity market is less concerned about this report. blmbrg

I like your humour... now you lost against the Canadian crowd.... and now you want to play against Kampo... that makes 2 positions against the main trend... but of course and then again, you might be the only one knowing, that eurjpy will soon fall... wish you best of luck... but personally we will still buy the dips in eurjpy and sell the rally in usdcad... that is how we made the money this year so far... gl and thanks for your contribution

Maybe this will give a clue for yen weakness and weak consumer spending in Japan.

http://www.iht.com/articles/ap/2007/05/15/asia/AS-GEN-Japan-Severed-Head.php

Teen appears at Japanese police station with severed head, says he killed mother.

TOKYO: A teenage boy holding a severed head appeared at a police station in northern Japan on Tuesday, saying he killed his mother, an official said.

The 17-year-old boy turned up at the police station in Aizu Wakamatsu city in Fukushima prefecture (state) Tuesday morning with the severed head, local police official Hisayoshi Watanabe said.

The boy told police officials that he killed his mother but it was not immediately clear if the head was the mother's, according to Watanabe.

No other details were immediately available, Watanabe said.

Kyodo News agency said that the boy, a high school senior, brought the head in a bag. A body without a head has been found in the boy's apartment, Kyodo said.

NZ Inquiry Should Target Productivity Growth -ANZ
Recently announced NZ Finance and Expenditure Committee inquiry into monetary policy may provide interest insights but could also divert attention from other "economic ills", in particular weakening productivity growth, says ANZ Bank; adds while RBNZ will admit its policy has not been perfect, ANZ is "suspicious of monetary policy being lined up as the convenient scapegoat" for other imbalances facing economy. Says any government inquiry should instead look at why productivity growth has declined, as this has heightened capacity pressure, kept inflation high despite sub-trend growth; notes labor productivity has more than halved from 2.6% per year over 1990-2000 to 1.2% per year over 2001-2006; magnitude of fall means deterioration can't just be dismissed as being cyclical.

MARKET TALK: Carry Trade Unwinding Looms Large - censored Markets
[Dow Jones] censored Markets US chief FX analyst Ashraf Laidi warns an unwinding of carry trades looms large, citing possibility of an imminent PBOC interest rate hike, also a possible "market jolt" from key U.S. data due this week. Deems a PBOC hike to be "a high probability event (above 85%) in the next 7 days", given China's April inflation at 3% is above 1-year deposit rate of 2.79%; notes this negative return on savings sending Chinese depositors to equities, which now being driven to levels authorities look to be uncomfortable with. Also says likelihood is "more than 75%" that one of U.S. data releases this week, including April CPI, April housing starts, raises fears of a hard landing.

Consumer confidence in New Zealand fell in early May, after the central bank raised its benchmark interest rate for the second time this year, according to a private sector poll issued Tuesday.

The Roy Morgan Consumer Confidence rating fell to 121.6 from 126.6 in April.

Possibility of China raising rates in May is pretty big and chance of further hike around July/August also exists, state-run China Securities Journal reports, cites Ha Jiming, chief economist at China International Capital Corp; comments in line with general expectations of rate hike in near term given overly abundant liquidity, continued fund diversion from bank deposits to stock market. Ha says higher rates could help turn investment activities relatively rational, but "this doesn't mean rate hikes may drag share prices down sharply in one go. A slew of measures need to be taken to ward off a bubble in the stock market and most of the measures shouldn't be monetary policies," he's quoted as saying

China's securities regulator has banned fund management companies from "speculative trading" and urged them to step up their risk controls over securities investments, the state-run Securities Times reported Tuesday.

The report didn't say what forms of trading the regulator had banned.

Fund management companies should warn investors of risks and encourage them to stick to long-term investments, the newspaper reported the regulator as saying in a notice to the companies.

Fund management companies should also make greater efforts to stop their employees giving stock investment information to their relatives and friends, it said.
