Goldminer Newcrest is lagging however after a modest decline in both profit and revenue from last year, even though the company affirmed this year's production targets despite the softer precious metals prices. AUD/USD also saw the most volatility among USD majors, rising about 60pips from the lows to $0.7790. After yesterday's weak employment data, economists began to price in more RBA rate cuts as early as next month. However, in his bi-annual testimony to parliamentary committee, RBA Gov Stevens said it would be unwise to react to one month of jobs numbers, also adding the impact of rate cuts may be diminishing. Traders took that as a sign the central bank chief wanted to temper expectations of more easing, even though he also expressed concern that the downswing in mining would only accelerate in 2015.- Shanghai and Hong Kong markets were also firmer, tracking bullish sentiment on Wall Street in the wake of encouraging ceasefire plans in Ukraine. Conference Board leading index grew for the 10th straight month but at a slower pace, and resident economist remarked that "the softening in the short-term trend of the LEI, along with other high-frequency statistics, suggests that China's growth in 2015 is off to a weak start." In notable Chinese press, Securities Journal commentary indicated PBoC is unlikely to cut rates in the near future following the November move, preferring to manage liquidity via open market operations and other tools. S&P report warned the property market would consolidate further in both volume and price before recovering later in the second half. Finally, a separate report noted China may see higher default risks in the private bond market.- After yesterday's press conference announcing the euro group and Greece are still apart on the terms of the funding, Dijsselbloem cautioned further talks are expected to remain challenging, and while a technical agreement is possible, a political solution will be difficult. Greek PM Tsipras maintained a hard stance, noting the essence of negotiation going forward would be "transition to a new program" which will be discussed on Monday, even as vocal German critics have been reluctant to budge on the possibility of relief without austerity. EUR/USD remains supported by overall weakness in USD, extending the gains made after soft US retail sales above $1.1430.***Equities***US markets: - KING: Reports Q4 $0.57 v $0.47e, R$559M v $518Me; +19.4% afterhours- CYBR: Reports Q4 $0.21 v $0.05e, R$36.3M v $26.7Me; +18.5% afterhours- JCOM: Reports Q4 $0.98 v $0.90e, R$167.1M v $160Me; Raises dividend 11% to $0.2925/shr, implied yield 2.0%; +11.4% afterhours- CBS: Reports Q4 $0.77 v $0.77e, R$3.68B v $3.64Be; +3.3% afterhours- BYD: Reports Q4 $0.00 (adj) v -$0.06e, R$592M v $541Me; +0.8% afterhours- BABA: China two major taxi hailing apps said to discuss merger - financial press; +0.6% afterhours- MU: Micron, Seagate announce strategic alliance; +0.4% afterhours- NKE: Announces Donald W.
