Between the MPC announcement and the release of the ISM data NZD/USD shot up from 0.7815 where it had been for the last 36 hours up to 0.7875. Man it looked like it had been fed steroids. If you were short at that time you would have been thinking the whole world was ganging up on you.

China stocks plunge as investor faith remains low
Chinese stocks nosedived more than five percent on Thursday as more investors stayed away from the market, which has been highly volatile in the past month.
The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index fell 5.25 percent to close at 3,615.87 points, extending Thursday's two percent loss.
Turnover in Shanghai A-shares was low at 75.76 billion yuan, slightly higher than the 72.26 billion yuan on the previous session, but less than one-third of the daily record of 267.5 billion yuan reached on May 30.
That indicates many investors remain cautious and are staying away from the market, analysts said, adding that it may take a long time for investors to regain confidence.

PAR, I wouldn't hold your breath. AFAICS, the West has to let Japan weaken it's currency in order to make inroads into China, and to stay competitive with China on the world scale. If it bothers the West, they can always lower their rates, and live with the inflation, or raise taxes. Over-consumption is Western problem, not a Japanese one.

1315 GMT [Dow Jones] BNP Paribas says the most significant aspect of Trichet's introductory statement was the restating that the ECB will monitor developments "closely." This is in line with the expression used last month and is a break from behavior previous to that. BNP Paribas says the use of the phrase gives the impression rates are closer to neutral and that the ECB is in less of a rush to deliver. BNPP says this will fuel speculation of the next move coming in October rather than September and in turn decreasing the likelihood of two further moves in the 2H. (GST)

While signs of the impact of higher rates have been limited until now, it is clear that household spending power is being squeezed, and that the housing market is losing steam.

Today’s rate rise will apply another touch on the brakes that should be sufficient to ensure that the Bank can be reasonably confident of having quashed inflation risks — and that its target will be hit with its hard-won credibility still intact.

fwiw-bloomberg- The non-manufacturing ISM
The non-manufacturing ISM surveys nearly 400 firms from 60 sectors across the United States, including agriculture, mining, construction, transportation, communications, wholesale trade and retail trade. Financial market players monitor the business activity index, because a composite index, like its manufacturing cousin, is not compiled by the ISM.

Why Do Investors Care?
Investors need to keep their fingers on the pulse of the economy because it dictates how various types of investments will perform. By tracking economic data like the ISM non-manufacturing survey's business activity index, investors will know what the economic backdrop is for the various markets. The stock market likes to see healthy economic growth because that translates to higher corporate profits. The bond market prefers less rapid growth and is extremely sensitive to whether the economy is growing too quickly-and causing potential inflationary pressures.

The ISM manufacturing index has a long history - dating to the 1940s. This new report (beginning in 1998) was originally not adjusted for seasonal variation, but the ISM has since established seasonally adjusted figures for several of the ISM non-manufacturing components (including the business activity index) since 2002. As a result, the ISM non-manufacturing survey has garnered more attention and is almost as widely followed by financial market participants as its manufacturing cousin.

An employment indicator published Thursday by payrolls giant Automatic Data Processing Inc. (ADP) and consultancy Macroeconomic Advisers reported an increase of 150,000 in private jobs in June.

That compares with the expected 128,000 increase in total jobs that economists called for in a Dow Jones Newswires survey earlier this week. The Labor Department publishes June nonfarm payrolls at 8:30 a.m. EDT Friday.

In addition, there was a slight upward revision in the May increase, which now shows an increase of 98,000 private sector jobs instead of the 97,000 increase first reported.

The ADP-Macroeconomic Advisers estimate doesn't include jobs growth in the government sector. In May, there was a 22,000 increase in the number of government jobs out of a total increase of 157,000.

keep an eye out for the GBPUSD 2-4 trend line from June 14th to June 27th lows (best seen on 2 hr charts) comming in now at 2.0117 and rising at about 30 pips a day so should we approach it, it will test the confidence of longs and the power of new entrants.

It’s a mini rollercoaster of micro-chaos but the levels are still there to attack. I’d rather take a few small bites from the easy moves and set up for the turns. The USDJPY had thrown me a little I admit. It seemed to me the resumption of trend had already begun but the move up was so choppy and the reversal so smooth you can see where the path of least resistance appears to be. Although this appears equally true for the EUR, it too is likely to get consolidated in a 4th wave coming soon. GBP is not looking so healthy and today should be a burn for the beast unless, for some ridiculous reason, BOE starts talking about how they considered a 50 basis point hike…that would reverse fortunes no matter what the phase of wave we are in.

Today looks like a new direction has developed on USD. Profit stoped on usdchf at 1.2144 and Commo appears to have seen the emergence of the mysterious 7th leg (magic of 7s again). Looking for a pop now to reverse. Equally the poor showing of USDJPY unable to breach the 122.90 level mentioned yesterday has made me reverse positions (with small profit on USDJPY long. Now short. But the reak loser looks to me to be the GBPJPY which im still short on at 247.15 (that at least has played to the rythem). EURGBP crosss also palying ball and comntinues to march onward. EURUSD has already started its 5th of 3rd leg up (stopped out for a loss of 20 pips).

Australia, U.S. Concerned Over China's Military Buildup
Australia and a top U.S. military official expressed concern Thursday that China's rapid military buildup and use of a missile in space could add to instability in the Asia-Pacific, and backed a greater role for Japan in regional security.
Releasing his government's first defense policy update since 2005, Prime Minister John Howard said China's economic rise was good for the world, but added a caution that it was also a pivotal player in several tense issues in the region.
"The pace and scope of its military modernization, particularly the development of new and disruptive capabilities such as the anti-satellite missile, could create misunderstandings and instability in the region," the policy report said.
Separately Thursday, the commander of the U.S.' Japan-based naval battle group voiced Washington's concern about China rapid military expansion. "Certainly we are a bit wary of China," Rear Adm. Rick Wren, the commander of the aircraft carrier USS Kitty Hawk's battle group, told The Associated Press. "They seem to be fairly opaque in communicating what they intend to do with this large military buildup."
Howard said China's economic rise was good for the world, but that "U.S.-China relations, China-Japan tensions and long-standing flash points in Taiwan and the Korean peninsula will require continuing careful management."

The report said mishandling tensions between Taiwan and China could have "disastrous consequences for the region."

The U.S. and Japan are stepping up efforts to build a joint missile defense system in Asia, partly as a bulwark against regional threats such as a nuclear-armed North Korea. Australia, a steadfast U.S. ally that has about 2,000 troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, is studying whether to participate in the defense shield.

Forty-five percent of the total, or 653 stocks dropped more than 30 percent; 901 stocks, or 62 percent, were down more than 20 percent; and 53 declined more than 50 percent.

CBA evening report:
The Australian Fair Pay Commission increased the Federal Minimum Wage by 2.0%. According to Michael Blythe, our Chief Economist, the rise equates to an annualised increase of about 2.5% and covers about 12% of the workforce. The potential contribution to aggregate earnings growth over the next year is 0.1ppts. But the strength of labour demand at present means the decision is unlikely to have much impact on employment. And the size and coverage of the rise means that the impact on wages/prices should be limited. We nevertheless believe that Australia remains on track to record a 1.2% increase in the quarterly CPI and underlying inflation pressures (+0.8% QoQ) will be enough to cause the RBA to raise interest rates on 8 August. Stay long the AUD.

Japan's May leading index surprised (well and truly) to the downside by coming in 10% points below expectations at 30%. This surprise is because the leading index is rarely out from consensus. The result is significant for two reasons; (1) the leading index is excellent in picking turning points in Japan's economy, and it is not yet suggesting that the economy has recovered from the current period of softness in industrial production; (2) it has maintained a weak bias on the JPY because the BoJ appear to be even further away from a possible interest rate rise. The JPY exchange rate continues to adjust to the fall in Japan's terms of trade. EUR/JPY has convincingly broken through 167.00 and is on track to meet our forecasts of 172.80 by Sep and 176.80 by year-end. Prior to our currency revisions last week, we were forecasting 168.00 (by Sep) and 169.00 (by Dec) for EUR/JPY. NZD/JPY has traded through 96.00 and is on track to meet our new forecasts of 99.84 (by end Sep) and 100.10 (end Dec). Our earlier forecasts of 93.44 and 93.60 were achieved early. NZD/JPY is just shy of its previous October 1987 high of 96.68 but it is only a matter of time before this target is met.

There was speculation that the RBNZ may have used the quiet US Independence Day holiday trade to intervene in the currency market, but so far the RBNZ have been notably absent. Next week's New Zealand economic data will be of major interest. June house price series (Monday) and May retail sales (Thursday), followed the following week by the Q2 CPI. The NZD is likely to move more than a full cent on absorption of this data.

(DJ):Ex-MOF Sakakibara: Japan FX Stance Change Unlikely

IGM: In the perceived absence of any central bank selling activity to come, [NZD/USD] looks set for a bout of steady trade today. A fresh prop for the booming Kiwi came in the form of local data earlier, with NZ Jun ANZ commodity prices rising 6.1% versus 2.6% last. Bull targets come in at the post float high of 0.7841, while there is a reported barrier just above there at 0.7850. Apart from the spectre of possible RBNZ activity, there is little argument against a likely tripping of the latter option play over the coming sessions, although there appears insufficient appetite/interest in the broader market at present. The sustained 1.10 break in Aud/Nzd looks another fairly bullish signal for the king of the high yielders.

Why the carry-trade will end in tears, the beginning of the end will commence with someone other than the participants.

"The point is, ladies and gentleman, that 'greed' -- for lack of a better word -- is good. Greed is right. Greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of its forms -- greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge -- has marked the upward surge of mankind. And greed -- you mark my words -- will not only save Teldar Paper, but that other malfunctioning corporation called the USA."

Total industry losses remain unclear - and could take months to establish - but they are believed to be well in excess of $1billion, affecting the life savings of tens of thousands of small retail investors.

I judge you may be taking an Asian centric view to the relationship between Japan and Europe. Both parties are fundamentally export oriented with a large proportion of their manufactured goods shipped overseas. Given that the JPY has weakened against the euro 7% this year and 20% since January 2006 the JPY depreciation puts Japan at a distinct advantge when they compete head to head in any market.
certainly helps Toyota trying to sell a Lexus when competing with Mercedes and BMW.

INTERVIEW: BOJ Rate Hike Pace May Pick Up Speed - Barclays

TOKYO (Dow Jones)--After likely raising interest rates in August, the Bank of Japan could hike again in December and in March 2008, spurred by a healthy global economy and recovering domestic labor market, Barclays Capital Chief JGB Strategist Masuhisa Kobayashi forecasts.

If this prediction of a more aggressive policy tightening is accepted by Japanese government bond market participants then the yield on benchmark 10-year JGBs could rise to 2.1% by the end of September and 2.3% by the end of December, he says.

At 0230 GMT, the 10-year yield was quoted at 1.915% after rising above 1.9% last month.

"There is a high possibility that the pace of rate increases by the BOJ accelerates (this fiscal year, which ends March 31, 2008)," Kobayashi told Dow Jones Newswires in a recent interview.

The strategist has previously forecast that the rate rise could come as early as July but now says that recent comments from BOJ officials suggest an August hike is more likely.

He said Japan's recovering labor market, which will boost consumption, justifies a rise in rates in August.

Market consensus is that the BOJ will likely raise rates next month but would then hike again once every six months.

But Kobayashi expects a faster pace of policy tightening, in part because he expects on-year changes in Japan's core consumer price index will turn positive around the autumn. Japan's nationwide core CPI fell 0.1% in May from a year earlier, marking the fourth straight month of decline.

Also, expectations could reappear in coming months of a rate rise in the U.S., which would give the BOJ added impetus to hike, he said.

Focus Shifting From CPI To Employment
Aside from the CPI, employment is key to sentiment in the domestic economy, Kobayashi said.
"(The strength in) Japan's economy could be confirmed by the tightening labor market and its ripple effect to wages. The increase in wages eventually leads to a rise in prices," he said.

Japan's jobless rate was unchanged in May at a nine-year low of 3.8%.

"The BOJ looks at the overall economy rather than solely relying on CPI when deciding the timing of a rate hike," as shown by recent board member's comments, he said.

BOJ Gov. Toshihiko Fukui himself has recently said that the central bank may tighten policy even if the CPI stays weak.

And BOJ policy board member Kiyohiko Nishimura earlier this week said that the BOJ should adjust rates according to "general economic improvement" but not to a prefixed schedule.

He said political uncertainty, including falling support for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's government, which is expected to suffer at Upper House election on July 29, is unlikely to change the August hike view. The more-power lower House is still dominated by the Liberal Democratic Party, Kobayashi said.

S Korea Deputy Fin Min: Yen-Won Cross Fall Hurting Local Cos

South Korea's Deputy Minister of Finance and Economy Cho Won-Dong said Thursday that the fall in the yen-won cross rate is hurting local industries, especially exporters.

"In this regard, the government will try to come up with measures to help local industries, which will be included in the economy policy blueprint for the second half of this year," said Cho.

The government will release forecasts of economic indicators for the second half and its economic policy blueprint July 11, the finance ministry said.

ABOARD THE USS KITTY HAWK (AP)--The United States is wary of China's rapid military buildup and will continue to expand its military alliances in the Asia-Pacific region as it interprets Beijing's intentions, a senior Navy officer said Thursday. Rear Adm. Rick Wren, commander of the Japan-based aircraft carrier USS Kitty Hawk's battle group, told The Associated Press that Washington wants China to become a stabilizing force in Asia, but that it has some reservations about Beijing's military expansion. "Certainly we are a bit wary of China," Wren told the AP aboard the carrier during a port visit to Sydney, Australia. "They seem to be fairly opaque in communicating what they intend to do with this large military buildup." "We need the Chinese to be a strong and stable partner in the global economy, as they already are," he said. "Certainly we need them to be a stabilizing force in this region. But until we can actually define that, we will continue to practice our skills and be ready for whatever the president calls on us to do."

Some 70% of Japan's trade is with Asia with China being Japan's No.1 trading partner..It is Asia and China that are vital for Japan's economy..With China feeling comfortable with Usd/Jpy115-125 range,the rest of Asia is unlikely to complain loudly..Japan's EU trade is not unimportant but it is not vital for Japan,so, Japan will at best pay a lip service..Not many US firms leave the country to re-settle in Japan..So Yen's range is not a concern for US politicos either..Who said only currencies like Zimbawe dollar or US dollar can decline against other currencies..

Tim Beasley, who wanted to raise interest rates last month, has said that the Bank of England should consider taking the unprecedented step of lifting rates by half a percentage point.

According to a survey of 60 economists by the financial news agency Bloomberg, 53 are expecting the bank to lift interest rates.

However, the decision comes as the first evidence starts to emerge that the four increases in interest rates since August are beginning to take their toll on consumers. Consumer confidence, for example, dropped last month for the first time since January, according to a survey from Nationwide.

Keeping interest rates low endangers economy: Muto
Bank of Japan Deputy Gov. Toshiro Muto said Tuesday that keeping interest rates low for too long could hurt economic growth.

"We need to pay attention to risks that could emerge should the stimulus from monetary policy become amplified," Muto said in a speech in Tokyo, according to a draft posted on the central bank's Web site.
