Policymakers are showing some desperation with chatter of market manipulation by shortsellers. The latest monetary easing measures are either falling on deaf ears or, as we mentioned yesterday in the critique of easing margin restrictions, actually being met with an adverse response.

China HSBC services figure hit a 5-month low and resident economist said latest data signalled a further loss of growth momentum, with service sector, business activity, new orders and employment all expanded at slower rates. HSBC continues to anticipate further policy support in H2 in order for policymakers to achieve 7% growth target. Japan PMI hit a 9-month high rate, and here the economists noted business sentiment strengthening in spite of soft employment prints.- Australia's retail sales recovered from 1-year low flat rate on the month but at a slower than expected pace, sending AUD/USD to 2 1/2 month lows below 0.7580.- South Korea formally unveiled a stimulus package in the amount of $14.3B to help deal with MERS and slowing exports. The spending would raise 2015 fiscal deficit to 3.0% from 2.1% prior forecast and add 0.3pts to this year's GDP. Package includes KRW6.2T of new spending and KRW5.6T to cover tax cut related revenue loss.- With all eyes are on the Greek referendum on Sunday, Fin Min Varoufakis in an interview with BBC announced there is a "100% chance" of a Greek agreement with creditors after Sunday's referendum, regardless of YES or NO vote. - In key M&A, financial press reported Aetna is close to a near to purchase Humana for $230/shr [about 22% implied premium] in combined cash/stock deal valued around $34B, and the deal could be formalized before the weekend. The two names have been speculated in merger discussion in the past, though it appears the talks have progressed.***Equities***US equities / ADRs:- HUM: Aetna said to be near deal to buy Humana for $230/shr [about 22% implied - premium in combined cash/stock deal valued around $34B - financial press- KYO: Kyocera, Microsoft Expand Technology Sharing AgreementNotable movers by sector:- Consumer discretionary: G8 Education Ltd GEM.AU -2.8% (makes a takeover offer); Asahi Group Holdings 2502.JP +0.2% (H1 result speculation); Fast retailing 9983.JP -4.0% (Uniqlo SSS decline)- Financials: Shimao Property 813.HK +0.8% (June result) - Industrials: James Hardie Industries JHX.AU +1.4% (FY16 outlook)- Technology: Konica Minolta Holdings Inc 4902.JP +0.4% (acquisition); Samsung Electronics 005930.KR -2.1% (Q2 result speculation)- Materials: Anhui Conch Cement 914.HK -3.4% (China to limit certain cement production)- Healthcare: Askul Corp 2678.JP +14.3% (FY14/15 result)-
