China released PMI figure that showed manufacturing return to expansion after two months of contraction. Output component saw the biggest increase, as the slide in new export orders pointed to tepid external demand. Non- manufacturing was down slightly, bus still firmly in expansion territory. HSBC data, measuring smaller enterprises, topped consensus but was still in contraction at 49.6, and resident economist pointed to "the pace of job shedding the strongest since last summer". Economist with NBS downplayed the rise in the official figure, citing a seasonal rebound after the holiday, but the results still yielded a bounce in AUD/USD, rising about 40pips above 0.7660. Also of note in China, avg prices of new residential properties across 100 major cities fell 0.15% - a similar margin relative to the prior month's -0.24%. China Index Academy added that thus far in march, housing inventories have been falling. - Japan Q1 Tankan missed expectations on manufacturing side, and industrial capex was particularly troubling as the first decline in 2 years. BOJ noted the unchanged sentiment among big auto makers and electrical machinery makers despite weak Yen, while some lawmakers moved to pressure the central bank into further easing. Chief cabinet Seg Suga however remarked that economic revival is still progressing smoothly. Separately, Japan Markit PMI retreated by a decimal to 50.3, even though remaining in expansion for the 10th month. USD/JPY fell over 50pips below 119.50 in the aftermath of the Tankan data, weighing on Tokyo stocks. - General risk aversion after the Tankan coincided with the selloff in US equity futures, as S&Ps fell over 20pts or 1% in electronic trade. Accelerated selling was already evident in the final hour of the US session, however the headwinds will likely carry over into Wednesday, with slumping crude oil prices once again cited in the retreat. After earlier report suggesting the two sides in the Iran nuclear talks remain at odds, Russian Foreign Min Lavrov announced the main elements of a deal have been reached and the final details will be agreed upon by June 30th. WTI continued its retreat from US hours falling below $47.50 in electronic trade going into Wednesday's DOE inventories release.***Equities***US equities / ADRs:- DYAX: Announces Positive Results from Phase 1b Clinical Trial of DX-2930; +49.8% afterhours- BGCP: Guides Q1 to "low end of prior guidance" of $490-520M v $511Me; -0.6% afterhours- SNX: Reports Q1 $1.46 v $1.52e, R$3.2B v $3.43Be; -3.3% afterhours- RKT: Cuts Q2 Adj EPS guidance to $0.70-0.75 v $0.86e (prior guided $0.80-0.90); -5.1% afterhours- CRS: Guides Q3 $0.26-0.30 (ex-restructuring costs) v $0.55e; intends to conduct restructuring, cut 200 jobs (10% of workforce); -6.4% afterhours- UTIW: Reports Q4 -$1.02 v -$0.07e, R$964.6M v $1.07Be; -12.6% afterhoursNotable movers by sector:- Consumer Discretionary: ABC-MART 2670.JP -3.4% (speculation on FY14/15 results); Wynn Macau 1128.HK -2.0% (FY14 results); FAW Car 000800.CN +0.9% (FY14 results)- Financials: Shimao Property 813.HK +2.0% (FY14 results)- Materials: Sumitomo Metal Mining 5713.JP -3.3% (FY15 production guidance); Itochu Corp 8001.JP -2.2% (to book impairment)- Industrials: UGL Ltd UGL.AU -5.2% (provides update on rail corridor project)- Healthcare: Hisamitsu Pharmaceutical 4530.JP -3.3% (speculation on FY15/16 results)- Utilities: CT Environmental Group 1363.HK +2.3% (FY14 results) - Source
