Negativity has spread to the far east with all regional indices in the red, led by an over 2% slump in Tokyo where stocks are weighed down by firmer Yen. USD/JPY fell another 50pips below 119.10 at the lows, even though EUR/USD is up 20pips above 1.1950 and AUD/USD is up 70pips at 0.8150.- Strength in the Aussie dollar was spurred by a narrower than expected Australia trade deficit, even though imports topped export for the 8th straight month. Trade data components saw Imports and Exports up 1% - shipments to China rose 1.5% and exports of iron ore spiked some 25% above A$6.2B. Australia weekly consumer sentiment from ANZ also rose slightly, though ANZ economists said confidence is unlikely to rise without a stabilisation in the unemployment rate.- In spite the broad-based equity selloff, there was some silver lining in the form of improving PMI figures. Hong Kong PMI returned to expansion for the first time in 5 months, as "private sector new orders returning to growth after seven consecutive months." China services PMI hit a 3-month high, with composite marking 8th month of expansion, as HSBC economist cited employment index improving modestly. Lastly, Japan services PMI of 51.7 was up from 50.6, and Markit economists also noted some employment growth despite subdued demand conditions. ***Equities***US markets: - AOL: Verizon said to be interested in its programmatic ad technology; Seeking potential acquisition or jv - financial press; +11.9% afterhours- XOOM: Determined had been victim of a criminal fraud, sees charge of $30.8M; Raises Q4 Rev $43.1-43.6M v $41.7Me (prior guided $41-43M); -12.4% afterhoursNotable movers by sector:- Consumer Discretionary: China Southern Airline 600029.CN +1.4%, Air China 601111.CN +2.9%, China Eastern Airline 600115.CN +1.1% (WTI Crude lower); McDonald's Japan 2702.JP -1.4% (a piece of vinyl found in a chicken nugget)- Financials: Sunac China 1918.HK -0.1%, Greentown China 3900.HK -4.4% (Sunac accuses Greentown not telling the truth on jv deal); China Vanke -5.0% (despite strong Dec sales result); Shanghai Pudong Development Bank 600000.CN -0.1% (prelim FY14 results)- Energy: Sundance Energy SEA.AU -6.4%, Drillsearch Energy DLS.AU -7.7%, Beach Energy BPT.AU -5.9% (WTI Crude moves lower) - Source
