DJ MARKET TALK: China Overheating Concerns May Be Overcooked - NAB
This week's plethora of Chinese economic reports for February left investors thinking there would need to be more policy tightening to prevent the economy from overheating. It was a sharp rise in CPI annual inflation to 2.7% from 1.5% in January that created the most concern. But John Kyriakopoulos, head of FX strategy at National Australia Bank, cautions about reading too much into this as much of the acceleration in inflation was driven by seasonality and the Lunar New Year. Says after adjusting for these, China's CPI rose just 0.2% between December and February, while annual inflation averaging over January and February was only 1.7%, still well below central bank's target of 3%.

DJ China Central Bank To Target Bubbles, Official Says -Nikkei
BEIJING (Nikkei)--The People's Bank of China aims to forestall runaway increases in asset prices this year while supporting stable and relatively brisk economic growth, Assistant Governor Guo Qingping told The Nikkei recently in a rare reference to bubbles by a Chinese central banker, the newspaper reported in its Friday morning edition.

It suggests that the central bank will move faster to correct what has been called excessive monetary easing. Some at the bank appear to share concerns that policies encouraging bank lending have created a severe excess of liquidity that is inflating real estate prices.

Many believe that the situation is linked to China's foreign exchange interventions to keep its currency stable against the dollar. Trends in real estate and consumer prices could affect the timing of the revaluation of the renminbi.

The People's Bank of China will continue easing as appropriate in the face of the numerous economic challenges at home and abroad, Guo said in a written statement. But he added that it is necessary to increase the accuracy and flexibility of monetary policy at the same time, suggesting that the bank is ready to make adjustments based on price trends.

I suspect Carney and Co starting to feel greater urge to tighten than they let on: the bank, in its last statement, said that the risks to its inflation outlook were "roughly balanced" and no longer "tilted slightly to the downside".

11:45 C Citigroup: Dick Bove says that C could double to $8.50-- Bloomberg

Thank goodness for the government controlled stocks. Fannie Mae (NYSE:FNM), Freddie Mac (NYSE:FRE), American International group (NYSE:AIG), and Citigroup Inc (NYSE:C) are just a few. If we did not have these stocks trading the volume in the market would be even lighter. Where are the participants? Last year at this time the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSE:SPY) was trading nearly a half billion shares a day and one year later it is averaging just 150 million a day. Last year the market was in the eye of the storm and volume was at unprecedented levels. However, it is now at unprecedented light levels.

It's a good thing that Citigroup (NYSE:C) has traded over a billion shares a day lately or this market would almost be non existent in trading volume. As long as the volume is light it is easy for the institutional money to keep this market up. Hence the old market adage, "never short a dull market." This is a dull market especially for the month of March.

DUBAI—The deadline is looming next week for Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, the Middle East's largest sovereign-wealth fund, to begin converting $7.5 billion of bonds in Citigroup Inc.

Citi agreed in November 2007 to sell $7.5 billion of equity units to the fund, or ADIA, at prices ranging from $31.83 to $37.24 a share. But ADIA said in mid-December last year that it is demanding that Citi scrap the deal that would see it take a heavy loss due to the fall in the bank's value.

Citigroup closed Wednesday in New York at $3.86, and recently traded around $4.

The fund, controlled by the oil-rich rulers of the Persian Gulf city-state of Abu Dhabi, is seeking more than $4 billion in damages from Citi if the deal to invest in the bank is upheld for what it alleges were "fraudulent misrepresentations" of the original agreement, Citi said in a statement last year.

A spokesmen for ADIA declined to comment on whether the fund will honor the terms of the original agreement when called by Zawya Dow Jones. Citi also declined to comment.

According to a memo seen by Zawya Dow Jones, the first settlement falls due on March 15, after which a share of total units will be converted every six months until Sept. 12, 2011. Each settlement date is subject to an extension of up to one year, the memo show

Trade deficit smaller due to falling imports...

PAR 13:49 GMT March 11, 2010
Trade Deficit - Crude Oil
WASHINGTON, March 11 (Reuters) - The U.S. trade deficit narrowed unexpectedly in January as oil imports fell to their lowest since February 1999, a government report showed on Thursday.

Global Markets

The trade gap shrank 6.6 percent to $37.3 billion, the Commerce Department said. U.S. exports declined, but not as much as the oil-led drop in imports.

Analysts had expected the deficit to widen to $41.0 billion from $39.9 billion in December, which was revised down from a previously reported $40.2 billion.

Average prices for imported oil hit $73.89 per barrel, the highest since October 2008, while the quantity of imported crude oil fell to an 11-year low.

Canada and U.S. Merchandise Trade

Broad Definition: Merchandise trade is trade in goods only, not services, and excludes capital transfers and foreign investments. Exports are total exports; they include both domestically-produced goods and re-exports, which constitute imports of goods which are warehoused here, then re-exported. Imports are general imports, which measure total arrivals of goods. The. Balance of trade is defined as total exports minus general imports.

IMPACT: Trade figures used to be viewed as the most important statistic for the forex market. It goes to proper valuation of the exchange rate, but can also reflect relative demand for goods. A trade deficit is a net deduction from GDP, while a surplus is an addition.

Weekly jobless data are the most current read on employment and also the economy.

Initial Jobless claims can be very volatile so many also watch the 4-week moving average to get a better handle on trends.

Continuing claims are used by economists to predict the unemployment rate. These data are not as consistent as they once were as statutory benefit rules have been changing. Changes in the rules can affect the number of individuals eligible for claims.

Swiss National Bank Policy Decision

Often a major events for forex and other financial markets. After all, forex price swings boil down to money flows. Through their money market activities, Central Banks set the “cost of money” (interest rates). Most target a short-term interest rate. Virtually all central banks, explicitly (or implicitly) target inflation in the medium term, so many traders track price trends closely as an indicator of policy. Central Bank watchers also usually dig deep into central bank policy statements for clues about future policy decisions.

AS, the databse is updated at the NY close each day.

GVI Forex Jay 12:14 GMT March 11, 2010

As posted on GVI Forex

EUR/CHF has traded within 1.46-1.47 for 21 days in a row in a slow erosion and very tight daily ranges as it sldies towards the lower end. Charts show the Feb 6 low at 1.4563 as key support with 1.4580 potentially acting as a SNB defense line ahead of it.

I have no clue what the SNB is thinking as it seems more of a smoothing action as opposed to aggressive intervention prior to 1.50 giving way. Perhaps 1.45-1.46 becomes the new area of defense if 1.46 gives way? Major support is at the Oct 27, 2008 low at 1.4300, with no real support below 1.4563 and the pivotal big figure 1.45. This sugegsts SNB will need to defend 1.45 to prevent a black hole until 1.43.

I read today market may be short expecting the SNB to water down its intervention talk (note SNB rate decision due at 13:00 GMT). If true, we can't rule out a SNB attack but recent reactions to intervention suggests those betting on this event will have offers lying in wait.

Us Trade Deficit - Protectionism
A White House official said Obama would name Boeing Co president and chief executive Jim McNerney and Xerox Co chief executive Ursula Burns to lead the President's Export Council.

Founded in 1973 by former President Richard Nixon, the council is a key forum for the private sector to communicate its trade views to the U.S. administration.

Obama will also create a new Export Promotion Cabinet, drawn from government departments including Treasury, State, Commerce and Agriculture in support of his efforts, the White House said.

Trade is a central part of Obama's drive of shift Americans away from an over-reliance on borrowing and consumption, replacing those sources of economic activity with investment and greater exports to the rest of the world.

Exports could help the United States recover from the worst recession in 50 years, caused by the collapse of the country's housing market, and unemployment at a towering 9.7 percent.

But critics say Obama has not backed up his words with action to advance free trade agreements with Panama, Colombia, and South Korea, and they are skeptical that his top-down initiatives to lift exports will deliver results.

Unless the Greek/Euro situation improves, there is more risk for yen to get stronger, however, once it settles, I expect that Yen will become the carry-funding currency. The problem is that we do not know when it happens as the euro problems seem to last longer than I expected.

WASHINGTON—Even as government receipts posted a rare increase in February, soaring outlays pushed the country's year-to-date deficit up to a record $651.60 billion.

The government's fiscal 2010 year-to-date deficit is up 10.5% from fiscal year 2009.

China data spur talk of further tightening
By Geoff Dyer in Beijing

Published: March 11 2010 05:42 - Last updated: March 11 2010 05:42

Inflation in China jumped sharply last month, increasing the pressure on the government to begin raising interest rates and allow the renminbi to rise against the US dollar.

Consumer prices rose by 2.7 per cent in February from a year ago, well above January’s 1.5 per cent increase and close to the 3 per cent ceiling that Premier Wen Jiabao set for this year in his speech to the National People’s Congress
Industrial production also accelerated, increasing by 20.7 per cent for the first two months of 2010 over the year before. The figure came in above analysts’ forecasts and the 18.5 per cent increase recorded in December. Factory-gate prices climbed 5.4 per cent in February against 4.3 per cent the month before.

DJ MARKET TALK:Aussie Job Market Can Still Justify Apr Hike -Macq
Australian job market strong enough to warrant back-to-back 25 bps rate hike by RBA in April, says Rory Robertson, debt strategist at Macquarie Bank. Says latest data show economy in very good shape, allowing RBA to hike again next month if it pleases. "If you put a gun to my head today, I'd guess that the RBA is going to hike again by 25 bps in April." The RBA can easily repeat simple story it used to justify last week's hike: the economy is in good shape and interest rates to most borrowers "remain lower than average." Adds with an election due later this year, RBA may view it as making sense to get another hike out of the way early, in case it needs to do several more this year.

Australia's labor force added fewer-than-expected jobs in February, but a large jump in full-time positions at the expense of part-time jobs and an increase in the number of hours worked indicates underlying demand for workers remains strong.

The economy has created close to 200,000 new jobs in the past six months, providing a challenge to policy makers as they grapple with a renewed resources boom that is set to further exacerbate capacity constraints.

The latest numbers won't likely change much on the outlook for monetary policy, with market pricing indicating that traders see only a 33% change of the Reserve Bank of Australia raising rates at its April meeting.

In February, the number of employed rose only 400, the Bureau of Statistics said. Economists on average had expected a rise of 15,000.

If anything, the flat employment growth coupled with weak housing finance shows the RBA has the room to keep its powder dry in April, Justin Smirk, chief economist at St. George said.

"What we see now is that there is no extra pressure on the RBA," Smirk said.

The RBA has already pushed rates higher to 4.00% from 3.00% and monetary policy is approaching a neutral setting. At this point the RBA has not indicated any desire to tighten beyond neutral, so don't expect the central bank to be in a rush just at the moment, he said.

The jobless rate ticked higher to 5.3%, but from a revised lower 5.2%, while the number of people in full-time work rose 11,400 to 7.66 million from 7.65 million in January. Those in part-time work fell 11,000 to 3.31 million from 3.32 million.

"On balance it's a pretty solid result in the context of big gains in recent months," said JP Morgan Economist Stephen Walters.

Interest rate traders initially bought short end bonds on the news, with the March three-year spot contract climbing three ticks to 95.00 before slipping back to 94.945.

The currency fell to US$0.9126 from US$0.9145 before the numbers, and has since fallen further to US$0.9118 on weaker Chinese stocks.

Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard said recent jobs growth hasn't been even across Australia.

"We are still seeing some very high unemployment numbers in parts of Queensland and Western Sydney, for example," Gillard told reporters. Coal rich Queensland's unemployment rate remained above the national average at 5.7%, and above the 5.5% recorded in January. A breakdown of statistics for Sydney's Western suburbs was not immediately available.

Economists said a rise in the average working week means there are few signs of weakness in the jobs market.

"Given the volatility of the month-on-month data, it's not that surprising to get an occasional soft month. It doesn't stop the underlying trend of improvement, however, that we've seen over the past six months," said UBS economist George Tharenou.

The bureau said its seasonally adjusted workforce participation rate, or the proportion of working-age persons at work or actively seeking work, fell to 65.2% in February from 65.3% in January.

Aggregate monthly hours worked rose 2.4% in February from January to 1.55 billion hours, reversing months of a statistical quandary where hours worked remained stubbornly low even as thousands of jobs were added.

"This finally reverses the trend where hours worked are now increasing," said ANZ Bank Senior Economist Julie Toth. "It's certainly the turning point we were waiting for."

A notable feature of Australia's mild economic downturn was the ability of employers to cut staff hours, rather than terminate contracts, keeping the overall unemployment rate well below the expected peak.

DJ :China Bonds Up; Hike Unlikely Despite CPI -Analyst
China government bonds up mildly despite February CPI on-year growth hitting 16-month high, as steady yield on 3-month PBOC bill sold in open market operation helps stabilize market confidence, says Shanghai Securities analyst Wang Yingfeng; notes jump in February inflation data mainly due to seasonal factors, CPI growth likely to slow down in March. Also, decision by PBOC-backed NAFMII to lower minimum yields on new corporate debt sold on interbank market yesterday signals central bank unlikely to hike official interest rates in near term.

China Jan-Feb Industrial Output Picks Up, CPI Mild
Latest China economic data likely to alleviate pressure on Beijing to further sharply scale back policy stimulus: Inflation remains mild (January-February CPI +2.1% on year vs December's +1.9%; more appropriate to look at January-February data together because single-month data distorted by timing of Lunar New Years), while industrial output continues to gather strength (January-February +20.7% on year vs +18.5% in December). For sure, Beijing's already been withdrawing stimulus, will likely continue to doing so as economy picks up, but it's also made clear it will be cautious in withdrawing support, including currency policy, as it's still worried about uncertainties abroad. So unlikely to make sharp policy changes, especially based on single set of data, policymakers will probably look at a few more months' of data

Despite lower-than-expected headline Australian jobs growth in February - with only 400 jobs added vs expected 15,000 - when coupled with leading indicators such as job adverts, hiring intentions in business surveys, data "are supportive of higher interest rates", says Macquarie Bank economist Brian Redican. Notably, rise in full-time employment is positive, as is increase in aggregate hours worked - suggesting there's a lot of resilience in labor market. Macquarie has 3 RBA rate hikes penciled in for 2010, one for each quarter, starting May, though risk is RBA does more, and earlier.

Euro rebounds on improved risk appetite and Greece's plan to cut deficit

The single currency rebounded strongly on Wednesday after Greece submitted a report to EU on its plans to tame its budget deficit while the greenback slipped against most currencies but rose against the yen, as gains in global stocks brought a return of risk appetite, boosting demand for higher-yielding currencies.

The euro traded with a soft undertone in Asia initially and briefly tumbled to an intra-day low of 1.3544 in European morning on disappointing German trade data. German January trade surplus was narrowed to 8.7 bln euro from 16.6 bln in December, much worse than median forecast of 16.0 bln. However, buying interest emerged above previous good support at 1.3530 and lifted euro. News later came in saying Greece told EU implementation of deficit plan is ahead of schedule. Price surged above Tuesday's high of 1.3636 on short-squeeze as well as cross-buying and hit an intra-day high of 1.3680 in NY mid-day before stabilizing.

Versus the Japanese yen, dollar traded sideways in Asia with traders saying Japanese exporters had sold the euro and the dollar this week, repatriating some of their overseas earnings in the run-up to the fiscal year-end on March 31. However, the pair's weakness was limited by speculation that the Bank of Japan may take measure to ease monetary policy as it remains under pressure to pull the country out of a nagging deflation. The greenback made an upside break in European morning and rose on improved risk appetites due to firmness in global stock markets. The pair rallied to an intra-day high of 90.83 in NY morning before retreating due to profit taking.

The aussie rose to its highest level in seven weeks after a report showed employers added jobs for six straight month. Positive jobs outlook together with supportive data from China which showed the country's exports increased the most in three years lifted the currency in Asia and Europe. Aussie hit a 25-year high against the pound and the strongest since 1997 versus the euro in the Asian morning as central bank Assistant Governor Philip Lowe said growth will likely be at or above average the next couple of years. Aussie surged to an intra-day high of 0.9193 in NY mid-day before retreating.

RBNZ kept its cash rate unchanged at at record low of 2.5% as wildly expected and reiterated that a start to higher rates is likely around the middle of the year. Despite displaying apparent strength before the rate decision (rising to as high as 0.7100 in NY mid-day), price tumbled to 0.7010 after the announcement on profit taking.

Economic data to be released on Thursday include Japan GDP, Australia employment change, unemployment rate, Swiss SNB rate decision, US jobless claims, trade balance, Canada capacity utilisation, export, import, new house price index and trade balance.
