Japan Plastic Prices Highest Since End Of Bubble Econ -Nikkei
TOKYO (Nikkei)--Prices of the four major synthetic resins are trading at the highest since the end of Japan's bubble economy in the early 1990s because of soaring costs for crude oil, The Nikkei reported in its Wednesday morning edition.

New Zealands Employment Confidence Index fell to 128.4 in the second quarter from 131 in the first - back to levels at the end of 2006 when jobs grew at 1.5% a year.

"Employees are clearly more guarded about the future employment situation," Westpac Bank economist Donna Purdue said. "But the concern is primarily in the form of job security and future job opportunities, rather than earnings," she said.

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez threatened Tuesday to seize companies and privately owned clinics that refuse to lower prices in response to a cut in the value added tax.

"Retailers must lower prices. That's when I say that those who do not (lower their prices) we close their business, we expropriate it," Chavez said during a televised speech in which he gave details of his recent trip to Russia, Belarus and Iran. "That's the kind of private sector that we cannot accept." The president had threatened clinics with nationalization before. He has also threatened to nationalize meat industry businesses, cement companies, and banks if they fail to follow his socialist ideas.

"The true human beings march on the road to socialism," Chavez said. The leftist leader has often referred to capitalism as "the road to censored."

Japan Listed Cos See 37% Surge In Interest, Div Income-Nikkei

TOKYO (Nikkei)--Publicly traded Japanese companies pocketed roughly Y1.8 trillion in interest income and dividends on a consolidated basis in fiscal 2006, up 37% on the year.
The increase was spurred by high overseas interest rates and a cheap yen. The data covered 1,748 nonfinancial companies, excluding those listed on the three start-up markets.
Manufacturers saw their net interest and dividend income hit Y26 billion, a turnaround from fiscal 2005's Y119.5 billion interest expense, net of dividend and interest income. This marks the first time they have been in the black since consolidated reporting became the norm in fiscal 1999.
data compiled by The Nikkei, according to a report in its Wednesday morning edition.

short term i prefer a test of lows prior to a test of highs so we test 245.88 and 245.43 (favorite level) and 244.88 then, if they hold we move higher.
My preference is for the energy to come from GBPUSD correction as stated in previous post not from JPY strengthening. Following all this im expecting more carry-fear tug of war with carry winning one final battle at the cost of JPY of course.

TOKYO (Nikkei)--Sumitomo Realty & Development Co. (8830.TO) and four other major real estate firms had a combined Y998.1 billion properties under construction as of March 31, up 55% over a year earlier, But specialized condominium developers are the ones driving the construction boom. According to a survey by Credit Suisse Securities (Japan) Ltd., 16 condo builders, including Daikyo Inc. (8840.TO) and Towa Real Estate Development Co. (8834.TO), had a total of roughly Y1 trillion in projects under construction.

"The combined condo supply capacity of major and specialized developers is reaching record levels, making price increases difficult," Credit Suisse analyst Yoji Otani says. "Profitability is likely to suffer because of rising land prices and construction costs."

Maybe they read Wesley Moons, a psychologist at the University of California at Santa Barbara, and his colleague Diane Mackie's Anger Fuels Better Decisions study in which they supposedly found that - detailed in this month’s issue of the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin - anger helps people focus on the cues that matter most to making a rational decision and ignore cues that are irrelevant to the task of decision-making.

Chainsaw victim puts hand in fridge

An Adelaide man accidentally cut his hand off with a chainsaw and then put it in a fridge until help arrived, the ambulance service says.

The man, from the southern suburb of Hackam West, phoned for help about 2pm (CST) today saying he had accidentally cut off his hand two hours before, a South Australian Ambulance spokeswoman said.

He told the service he had put the severed hand in the fridge until he could phone for help, she said.

The man was conscious when the ambulance arrived and was taken to the Flinders Medical Centre, where he was admitted for emergency surgery.

The contract's technical momentum - its rate of uptrend - is edging lower and that's the setup for downtrend to $652.50 support, which charts say may be a prominent intraday low.

more important from your comments I feel is that the range today might not be much more wider..

jus trying to manage my short nzdusd trade.. since my netry is 7804 (average) I was thinking this strategy:
lighten at 20 then add above 30...

just try to come up with some idea how to manage a trade that went bad withour just closing it with loss - because if I close lower then I add the same margin with a relatively smaller loss - and in the same time moving my short entry higher..

it resembles a bit Zeus' buying the cad a month ago.. but I can't even do this since every time it goes under 7820 I think it will go to B/E ..
anyway - sorry for too much writing - just share what I try to do - I personally think it's not great strategy but thinks change and I try to find for myself whether I fixed stop is better or gradual scaling with some mind level where one must just close or reverse (while actively dragging entry up as described)

All looks steady, except maybe for oil which in asia traded around the 72 bucks. US 10 years bond yields am looking for chances to taste the support around 4.9 later on. Some carry dismantling earlier during aseand and european hours moved also some prices in favour of the usd, beside the yen back ahead of holidays. Btw today is also holiday in canada.

Bini Smaghi: Any Forex Move Must Be Done With U.S. And Japan
The euro area is better placed than the U.S. or Japan to "influence" foreign exchange markets, European Central Bank Executive Board member Lorenzo Bini Smaghi said Tuesday. "The structure in place in the euro area is in my view a more efficient one," he said in a speech.
Bini Smaghi's remarks follow complaints by French and Italian politicians at the strength of the euro, which has hit record highs against the yen in recent weeks and remains historically high against the dollar Any official intervention in foreign exchange markets would have to be done in concert with U.S. and Japanese authorities, he said. The ECB has intervened in the past, Bini Smaghi said. In autumn 2000, the ECB took the initiative, albeit after consulting U.S. and Japanese officials, in an effort to boost the euro which had sunk against the dollar following its launch. For foreign exchange market intervention to be effective it must be consistent with domestic policyaction, it has to be done in conjunction with officialsrom the other major-currency nations, and it has to be explained to the market, Bini Smaghi said.

Syd 08:38 GMT July 3, 2007 Reply   
EUR slides back again to $1.3607 as ECB's Bini Smaghi acknowledges that currency intervention can work but that it is best done in coordination with the US and Japan. His comments follow more recent criticism about the EUR's strength from Italy and France with French President Nicolas Sarkozy repeating his criticism that the single currency is overvalued. It remains unclear whether the market is interpreting Bini Smaghi's comment as any sort of threat.

Yen's weakness becomes worrisome!!!!!!!!!!

LOOKS WHOM TALK. Can you trust any of those????????
TOKYO: Several top Japanese manufacturers say they are concerned that the yen's slump to a 22-year low is too much of a good thing for Japanese exporters.

Nissan Motor, the third-biggest carmaker behind Toyota and Honda in Japan, cannot afford to rely on exchange rates to compete, its chief executive, Carlos Ghosn, said.

Housing could hit 'crisis point' as approvals tumble
Building approvals tumbled in May as the cost of building a new home turned buyers towards the established housing market, leading to fears the housing sector will hit "crisis point" within a year.In May, building approvals fell 5.6 per cent to a 12,004 units, seasonally adjusted, to be 7.2 per cent lower than a year ago, Australian Bureau of Statistics figures showed. the result surprised economists, who had expected approvals to fall 1.4 per cent during the month following the 8.1 per cent increase in April.He said both housing affordability and the rental market would be affected."Approvals are trending at an annualised completions rate of just 137,000, still well below underlying dwelling requirement of around 168,000 dwellings," Mr Braddick said.NSW posted the largest fall in building approvals in May, dropping a sharp 12 per cent, despite a 1.8 per cent rise in private sector approvals.Total building approvals were down 10 per cent in Queensland, 4.6 per cent in Tasmania, 4.4 per cent in Western Australia and 0.9 per cent in Victoria.

Japan Ex-Minister Takenaka: Tokyo Land Prices Not A Bubble Citing soaring property prices in Singapore, Seoul and Hong Kong, he joked that Tokyo "real estate prices are not high enough." Prices aren't excessively high based on financial modeling that estimates the present value of future rent payments, he said.

Japanese land prices last year rose for the first time since the bubble economy burst in 1990, with the comeback led by urban areas, notably a Tokyo surge of 9.4%. The gains were driven by a small number of exclusive residential and commercial areas, some jumping 30%-40%.

I doubt this UsdJpy uppper move from 122.18 is nothing of just a prudential resetting of a larger move that has to print at least 121.50. Maybe below 120 in certain cases if the Japanese authorities clear the path for another moderate hike of rates.

Morning... no big here this early..maybe some those laserometrics lovers.. btw do see this UsdJpy yet capped some as yesterday reported some Krugman concerns over Rating agencies misinterpretations, for which all of us think mostly agree. Let's see this particular market what has in store for us todays. Have a good day ahead.

Subprime Ribs : Subprime worries go on, with NYT's Paul Krugman calling out the ratings agencies "you might have thought that S.& P. and Moody's, which gave Thailand an investment-grade rating until five months after the start of the Asian financial crisis, and gave Enron an investment-grade rating until days before it went bankrupt, would by now have learned to be a bit suspicious," regarding ratings on subprime related bundles. One large mortgage banker always on top of his game noted, "many, many, many years ago we had a policy that we would never sell bonds [to an entity from whom] we would be afraid to buy them back," so they have "stayed away from the derivatives of derivatives of derivatives." With the WSJ today noting "Hedge funds are due to mark to market this week their exposures to subprime assets as they report to their lenders," (gulp) what that means exactly in the sense of "mark-to-market" is murky. There will "likely be the dance [as in previous looming crisis'] 'Oh! Look over there!' while they" decide where that "mark" for a given instrument is. "Valuation on these things is spongy, at best, in the best of times." The good news he thinks, with the curve shallowly flat, but no longer inverted, "banks can actually have positive carry...again...for a while."

NZ Tourism Holdings Expects Soft 1H; Outlook Clouded By NZD
New Zealand's Tourism Holdings Ltd. (THL.NZ) Tuesday said a high New Zealand dollar and interest rates are clouding its outlook, with current fiscal first half trading conditions expected to be softer than the previous year.
Tourism Holdings said it's confident about longer term trading prospects based on the assumption of more moderate values for the New Zealand dollar.

"At current levels the (New Zealand) dollar has a significant negative impact on inbound visitors' purchasing power at the group's attractions, and encourages substitution of New Zealand inbound travel by travel to other markets," it said.

The local currency has remained at elevated levels for much longer than many had expected, and rallied to a new 25-year peak of US$0.7835 in overnight trading.

AUD/NZD - this is just silly. kiwi is way over valued here wrt the ozzy. NZ runs a large deficit with oz, with the profits of most of our major banks and business get repatriated back there. If the ozzys want more money, they just dig another hole in the ground. Look at the coal ships off Newcastle - NZ has nothing equivalent, bar a few dairy cows.

This all just feels like a technical route of NZD shorts. Sell rallys and watch the margin - esp NZD/AUD.

All states and territories except New South Wales (-0.3%), Victoria (-0.7%) and Western Australia (-0.1%) had increases in the seasonally adjusted estimate. The largest increase occurred in Tasmania (+1.0%).
The state by state figures just illustrates how poorly the most populous states are performing.

World Bk Study Says 750,000/Yr Die In China From Pollution-FT Beijing engineered the removal of nearly a third of a World Bank report on pollution in China on concerns its findings that about 750,000 people die prematurely each year, mainly from air pollution in large cities, could provoke social unrest, the Financial Times reported on its Web site.

China's State Environment Protection Agency and health ministry asked the World Bank to cut the calculations of premature deaths from the report when a draft was finished last year, the paper reported World Bank advisers and Chinese officials as saying.

Guo Xiaomin, a retired Sepa official who co-ordinated the Chinese research team, said some material was omitted because of concerns the methodology was unreliable, the paper reported. But he also said such information on premature deaths "could cause misunderstanding."

"We did not announce these figures. We did not want to make this report too thick," he said in an interview with the FT. The pared-down report, "Cost of Pollution in China," has yet to be officially launched, the paper said.

UK Terror Plot Suspect Doctor At Queensland Hospital-Official
State and federal police seized the man, whose name was not immediately released, at Brisbane International Airport, where he was trying to board a flight with a one-way ticket, Attorney General Philip Ruddock told reporters in the national capital, Canberra. No charges have yet been laid.

Ruddock said the man was not an Australian citizen but had been working as a registrar at the Gold Coast Hospital in eastern Queensland state. He declined to state the man's nationality.

"The individual concerned was seeking to leave Australia and I understand did not have a return ticket," Ruddock told reports. "The man is currently assisting police with their inquiries."

Police executed a number of search warrants across Queensland state overnight, including at the hospital where the man worked, but there was no sign that Australia was a possible target for attack, Ruddock said.

"There is no information that suggests that the terror alert, at medium, should be varied," he said. "While a terrorist attack could certainly be possible in Australia, we have no specific information about any such planned action here."
