Initial CNBC report of an 'agreement in principle' for Greece to remain in the bailout program was quickly negated, as Greek govt officials refuse to accept an extension of the bailout under the current terms of austerity. After a delay, Eurogroup's Dijsselbloem confirmed that negotiators could not achieve a conclusion despite some progress made in clarifying the positions of both sides, adding the existing program is only the starting point of discussion. Dijsselbloem concluded the address by noting talks will resume on Monday. Concurrent comments from Greek Fin Min Varoufakis were even less sanguine, stating that many concessions are still needed to reach a deal on Monday, reiterating Greece wants a new contract with Europe toward a "healing deal", and that the Greek side is seeking to explain why the current bailout conditions are not working. EUR/USD fell about 50pips toward $1.13 after confirmation the deal remains elusive.- AUD/USD fell about 70pips below $0.7650 - within 20pips of 5-year lows - in the wake of weaker than expected Australia employment data. Employment change was negative for the first time in 4 months, and jobless rate spiked to its highest level in over 12 years with most of the job loss coming in the full-time component. Aggregate Hours worked was perhaps the silver lining in an otherwise glum report, rising by 8.2M hrs for the biggest increase in 7 months. S&P/ASX initially rose on easing expectations but subsequently retreated. ANZ, RBC, and CBA economists all concluded the jobs data will likely force RBA's hand into another easing move, with expected timing ranging from as early as next month to May.- In China, PBoC cut RRR by 1% for Bank of Beijing, releasing an estimated CNY9B in liquidity. Later in the day, central bank's open market operations were also aggressive with CNY120B for the session and CNY205B for the week - both of those are the highest since last January - as policymakers anticipate credit spike going into next week's Lunar New Year. - Japan machine orders were much stronger than expected, prompting an upgrade in govt assessment only a month after a cut on the sector. Econ Min Amari was upbeat on the progress made fighting deflation in spite of the falling oil prices. Japan cabinet also deflected overnight press reports of likely miss on fiscal balance objective by 2020, noting FY15 consolidation target will be met. USD/JPY briefly tested below 120 following the Greece developments before rising back above 120.30 in what appears to be its 3rd session of steady gains.***Equities***US markets: - TRIP: Reports Q4 $0.35 v $0.37e, R$288M v $285Me; +13.7% afterhours- CSCO: Reports Q2 $0.53 v $0.51e, R$12B v $11.8Be; +6.8% afterhours- FXCM: Reports Jan Monthly Metrics +3% m/m to $450B; +32% y/y; +5.4% afterhours- FEYE: Reports Q4 -$0.38 v -$0.50e, R$143.0M v $140Me; +5.1% afterhours- NVDA: Reports Q4 $0.43 v $0.29e, R$1.25B v $1.20Be; +4.0% afterhours- WFM: Reports Q1 $0.46 v $0.45e, R$4.67B v $4.68Be; +2.6% afterhours- SKX: Reports Q4 $0.43 (incl items) v $0.44e, R$569.7M v $538Me; +2.0% afterhours- MET: Reports Q4 $1.38 v $1.37e, R$18.3B v $18.2Be; -0.3% afterhours- AMAT: Reports Q1 $0.27 v $0.27e, R$2.36B v $2.33Be; -1.9% afterhours- TSO: Reports Q4 $1.46 v $1.48e, R$8.45B v $9.23Be; Raises quarterly dividend 41.7% to $0.425/shr, implied yield 1.9%; -2.0% afterhours- CTL: Reports Q4 $0.60 v $0.63e, R$4.44B v $4.47Be; -2.3% afterhours- TSLA: Reports Q4 -$0.13 v +$0.25e, R$1.10B v $1.19Be; Q4 shortfall due to 'one-time manufacturing inefficiencies' and strong dollar; -3.9% afterhours- NTAP: Reports Q3 $0.75 v $0.77e, R$1.55B v $1.61Be; increases buyback program by $2.5B (20% of market cap); -5.3% afterhours- CAKE: Reports Q4 $0.48 v $0.60e, R$499M v $510Me; -5.9% afterhours- PNRA: Reports Q4 $1.87 (ex items) v $1.82e, R$672.5M v $675Me; -7.6% afterhours- BIDU: Reports Q4 $1.61 v $1.61e, R$2.26B v $2.22Be; -9.2% afterhours- ZU: Reports Q4 $0.11 v $0.14e, R$391.3M v $401Me; -22.0% afterhoursNotable movers by sector:- Consumer Discretionary: China South Publishing & Media Group 601098.CN +3.4% (prelim FY14 results); Unicharm 8113.JP +3.4% (FY14 results); Tassal Group TGR.AU +3.6% (H1 results)- Financials: Bank of Beijing 601169.CN +1.5% (PBoC cuts RRR for Bank of Beijing)- Energy: Santos Ltd STO.AU -1.7% (to take impairment charges)- Industrials: JGC Corp 1963.JP -3.1% (9-month results)- Technology: Mesoblast Ltd MSB.AU +1.6% (H1 results); Kyocera Corp 6971.JP +3.7% (to sell smartphones in Europe)- Telecom: Telstra Corp TLS.AU -0.1% (H1 results) - Source
