Worries over drying up decline in volume that took the mainland markets on their spectacular rallies so far this year are at the forefront, with another brokerage - Golden Sun Securities - reportedly suspending margin financing for all stock on GEM board. With more concern out of govt official regarding "overdeveloping" financial system in recent days, the news of top China banks being granted brokerage licenses in H2 is also received with suspicion.- Australia economic data was nothing short of terrible, spoiling any optimism that followed after the release of better than expected GDP data overnight. Retail sales came in flat, failing to grow m/m for the first time in a year. Trade balance was ever worse, posting its biggest monthly deficit on record going back to the early 1970s. Exports fell 6%, with shipments to China coming in at their lowest monthly volume since Oct of 2012. A closer look at the export breakdown also showed the value of iron ore falling over 10% to the lowest level in 5 years. AUD/USD fell 60pips to 0.7710 on the release while stocks traded off their lows on expectation of a more accommodative policy view at the RBA than the surprisingly neutral stance adopted this week.- Ahead of Friday's IMF deadline, Greek PM Tsipras said his govt is still not in agreement with certain requests made by creditors. Eurogroup's Dijsselbloem said talks will continue in a few days, and that some progress had been made.***Equities***US equities / ADRs:- FEYE: Visa and FireEye announce partnership to Help Merchants, Financial Institutions Defend Against Targeted Attacks on Consumer Payment Data; +3.5% afterhours- TWTR: CEO: through our planned product changes we are creating a platform that can be valuable to more users - annual meeting; +0.7% afterhours- AIG: Announces Pricing of the Sale of 87M Ordinary Shares of AerCap Holdings for about $3.7B; +0.2% afterhours- BLUE: Bluebird Bio regains rights to CAR T programs outside of BCMA; To receive $25M payment as part of amended agreement with Celgene; -3.4% afterhours - TMUS: Said to be in merger talks with DISH Network; Terms regarding price or cash/stock split not yet agreed - financial press Notable movers by sector:- Financials: Bank of Communications 3328.HK +5.9% (speculation for ownership reform and brokerage license) , Bank of Beijing 601169.CN +3.8% , Everbright Bank 601818.CN +6.4%, SPD Bank 600000.CN +4.0%, and Industrial Bank 601166.CN +6.0% (speculation for banking sector ownership reform); Guotai Junan International Holdings 1788.HK +2.9% (receives approval for A shares); Shimao Property 813.HK +1.1% (May result); Zhongtian Urban Development Group Co 000540.CN +8.1% (industrial park in Yantai)- Industrials: BYD Company 002594.CN +10.0% (private placement)- Technology: Alibaba Pictures 1060.HK -8.8% (share placement); Kingsoft Corp Ltd 3888.HK -2.9% (share placement); Beijing UniStrong Science & Technology Co 002383.CN +10.0% (share placement); Sichuan Changhong Electric Co 600839.CN +10.0% (SOE reform); Ainsworth Game Technology AGI.AU -4.5% (guidance); Rakuten Inc 4755.JP -5.7% (stock offering); Samsung Electronics 005930.KR +4.9% (no plan to merge with SDS)- Materials: Wuhan Iron & Steel 600005.CN +2.7% (SOE reform); Kingfa Science & Technology 600143.CN +3.3% (to set up private bank); Beadell Resources BDR.AU -5.1805% (cuts Q2 guidance)- Energy: APA Group APA.AU -2.0% (cuts guidance)- Utilities: CGN Power 1816.HK +3.0% (benefit from CNNPC IPO)-
