However, after last month's unexpected cut, Gov Stevens once again surprised investors with a rate hold at 2.25%. The statement was mainly a reiteration of that of last month though notably more brief, since last month's decision went to some length in explaining the cut. Key component of the statement was the reiteration that further easing may be appropriate, which analysts perceive as continued easing bias likely to translate into an eventual easing in April or May. Also of note out of Australia, property prices were much stronger than expected, and housing inflation has been cited as a potential deterrent for RBA to take an extra accommodative stance. Economist with JPMorgan said the rise in property prices suggests demand is still outpacing supply, while also pointing to insufficient building activity pushing up prices. AUD/USD spiked up to $0.7830 after the surprise RBA hold - up about 80pips from session lows - while S&P/ASX fell toward 5,900 before recovering above 5,940 headed into the close.- USD/JPY was also among the more active dollar majors, particularly in the afternoon session, falling about 70pips from the highs below 119.60. Influential PM Abe advisor Honda warned against potential overheating of the economy as a result of overly aggressive BOJ policy, presumably in attempt to forestall additional policy easing. Honda said the BOJ should not react to lower oil prices weighing on inflation. Separately, a Nikkei report citing QUICK Corp survey saw about 90% of respondents calling for the BOJ to change the time frame for achieving 2% inflation and over 50% for the BOJ to make the deadline vague and push it back. Meanwhile, Japan labor cash earnings - a closely watched inflation indicator - saw yet another negative y/y print on inflation adjusted basis headed into the key spring wage negotiations. In Tokyo equities, Sharp was a big mover to the downside following fresh press reports of impending reorganization and plant closures due to capital needs.***Equities***US markets: - MDR: Reports Q4 $0.03 v -$0.05e, R$806.4M v $748Me; +24.1% afterhours- OCN: Updates Q4 charges and expenses; +5.5% afterhours- ASPS: Reports Q4 adj EPS $0.30, -83% y/y, R$255.9M v $260Me; +2.6% afterhours- ISRG: Awarded $430M DoD contract; +1.4% afterhours- PANW: Reports Q2 $0.19 v $0.17e, R$217.7M v $202Me; -1.1% afterhours- MYL: Reports Q4 $1.05 v $1.04e, R$2.08B v $2.09Be; -1.5% afterhours- CZR: Reports Q4 -$7.00 v -$2.04e, R$2.13B v $2.19Be; -7.9% afterhoursNotable movers by sector:- Consumer Discretionary: Corporate Travel Management Ltd CTD.AU -3.6% (shareholder lowers stake); Surfstitch Group SRF.AU +5.3% (shareholder raises stake)- Financials: Suncorp-Metway SUN.AU -2.6% (update on effect from tropical cyclone Marcia)- Industrials: Downer EDI DOW.AU +1.0% (shareholder raises stake)- Technology: Sharp Corp 6753.JP -7.5% (may seek capital infusion from lenders; to start reorganization); TCL Communication Technology 2618.HK +1.8% (FY14 results) - Source
