Benchmark U.S. Yield Remain on Upward Path even as Stocks Plunge
 
5a7cff4d6ae4c.jpg
 
Treasury Yields rebounded on Thursday as edgy investors drove down stock benchmarks significantly lower in another dramatic and volatile session on Wall Street driven by inflation concerns, but the benchmark 10-year note clung to an upward movement. 
 
The yield for the 10-year Treasury note stood at 2.848 percent, rising 0.8 percent, after recording an intraday high of 2.875 percent. The two-year note yield fell 0.4 basis point to 2.130 percent, while the 30-year bond rate edged up 1.8 basis point to 3.134 percent. 
 
After a short-lived flight to safe haven assets drove yields lower on Monday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average losing over 800 points at its lowest, government paper saw a resumption in selling, pushing yields up again. 
 
A rally in bonds helped to reverse the selloff after the Bank of England said that strong inflation could accelerate the schedule of rate hikes, putting pressure on British government bonds. BoE's Monetary Policy Committee voted unanimously to retain interest rates at 0.5 percent. The central bank has received criticism from analysts arguing that the country's borrowing rates are too low as the weak pound has stoked inflationary pressures. 
 
The 10-year UK bond yield surged 7.9 basis points to 1.617 percent, according to Tradeweb. Meanwhile, the sterling rallied to $1.3914, rising from $1.3882 before the BoE report.

UK Consumer Spending Remains in Second Gear in January: Visa
 
5a80e5c887324.jpg
 
British consumers spend less in January compared to the same period a year ago, causing spending last month to mark its first decline since 2013, according to a survey. 
 
Visa, whose debit and credit cards are utilized for a third of payments in the UK, reported on Monday that consumers had a stronger control on spending for the traditional post-Christmas sales in the previous month. 
 
Household spending declined by 1.2 percent in January against the same month in 2017, with spending in shops falling by 4 percent, Visa reported. 
 
A decline in car sales affected the overall sales numbers too. But things were more upbeat for hotels and restaurants, as well as for hair salons and beauty product sellers, as consumers looked for little luxuries for themselves. 
 
Britain's economic growth has fallen behind the more solid expansion in other affluent countries in 2017 as higher inflation since the Brexit vote and weak growth squeezed consumers' spending power. 
 
Annabel Fiddes of IHS Markit said worries regarding Brexit were affecting consumer confidence. However, spending could gain momentum later this year as inflation is anticipated to retreat will wages increase more quickly, she added.

Ireland Consumer Sentiment At 17-Year High
 
1.jpg
 
Ireland's consumer confidence reached a 17-year high in January reflecting robust economy, survey results from KBC Bank and the Economic and Social Research Institute showed Monday. 
 
The consumer sentiment index rose to 110.4 in January from 103.2 in December. This was the highest score since February 2001. 
 
However, the survey suggested that the improvement was largely driven by bargain hunting in post-Christmas sales. This strong 'seasonal' element to jump in January may be reversed in coming months, the survey cautioned. 
 
An improvement in all five main components of the survey points to a distinct improvement in the mood of Irish consumers at the start of 2018. 
 
The index of current conditions improved to 129.6 from 122.9 a month ago. Likewise, the index of consumer expectations came in at 97.5, up from 90 in December. 
 
The general economic outlook index climbed to 73.4 from 65.3. Similarly, the outlook for employment index rose to 98.0 from 94.3 in the previous month. 
 
The indicator measuring past personal financial situation improved to 108 and that for coming twelve months gained to 125.6. 
 
Austin Hughes, KBC Bank Ireland, said, "The sharp rise in sentiment in January partly reflects the continuing improvement in the Irish economy that now seems to be reaching more broadly across Irish consumers."

U.S. Yields Rally as Investors Eye Inflation Report
 
5a822e6a78c45.jpg
 
U.S. government bond prices continued their decline, driving yields up, as investors looked forward to the coming inflation report that could reaffirm the bearish sentiment on Treasury bonds. 
 
The 10-year Treasury note yield advanced 2.7 basis points to 2.857 percent, but retreated from a four-year peak of 2.891 percent hit earlier in the day. 
 
The 30-year bond rate was almost unchanged at 3.138 percent but reached its highest level since March 2017, according to WSJ Market Data Group. Meanwhile, the two-year note yield recorded a gain of 1.7 basis points to 2.077 percent. 
 
Bond markets experienced selling pressure as a mixture of inflation worries, increasing budget deficits and the Federal Reserve's move to unwind its balance sheet have affected the demand for U.S. government bonds. Treasury issuance is expected to increase at the same time the U.S. government can no longer depend on a price-insensitive Fed to absorb the coming supply. 
 
Higher rates were said to be the cause of a deep correction that sent stocks plunging. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, the S&P 500 index and the Nasdaq Composite Index traded down over 5 percent in the previous week. Stocks look less attractive on several valuation indicators if the benchmark 10-year yield rises to high. 
 
However, stocks rallied on Monday to record back-to-back increases, with the Dow rising over 400 points. 
 
Investors are now expected to focus on the consumer-price index report on Wednesday, a possible turning point as investors faulted the strong reading on the wage index of the January jobs report as the main reason for the market turmoil.

The unemployment rate in Australia came in at a seasonally adjusted 5.5 percent in January, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said on Thursday. 
 
That was in line with expectations following the upwardly revised 5.6 percent reading in December (originally 5.5 percent). 
 
The Australian economy added 16,000 jobs last month - beating forecasts for 15,000 following the downwardly revised 33,500 increase in the previous month (originally 34,700). 
 
The participation rate came in at 65.6 percent - matching expectations and down from 65.7 percent a month earlier.

Wall Street Gains as Dow Jumps 253 Points
 
5a84ebc9e4788.jpg
 
U.S. stocks increased sharply on Wednesday, hitting a four-day winning streak as banks and tech lifted major indexes higher. 
 
The Dow Jones industrial average closed 253.04 points higher at 24,893.49 after dropping as much as 150 points. Goldman Sachs contributed the most to the gains, climbing 2.8 percent. The 30-stock index also pared all of its 2018 losses and reported its longest winning streak since Jan. 5. 
 
The S&P 500 rose 1.3 percent to 2,698.63, with financials and tech each gaining over 1.5 percent. Bank of America, J.P. Morgan Chase, Citigroup and Morgan Stanley all traded higher. The financials sector had its best day since Nov. 28. The index also turned positive for 2018. 
 
The Nasdaq composite climbed 1.9 percent to end at 7,143.62, as shares of Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Alphabet increased. 
 
U.S. equities opened lower on the back of stronger-than-expected inflation data. 
 
Seven of the 11 major S&P 500 sectors were higher. The decliners included the typically defensive sectors: consumer staples, utilities and real estate. 
 
The CBOE Volatility index was down at 21.10 points, slipping below 20 for the first time since Feb. 5 and well off the 50-point mark it hit during last week's sell-off. 
 
The SPDR S&P Bank exchange-traded fund (KBE), rose 2.9 percent and posted its best day since Nov. 29. 
 
Concerns of rising inflation have recently weighed down Wall Street. Last week, all three major U.S. indexes finished the five-day trading period more than five percent down each, with the Dow delivering its worst performance since January 2016.

Japan Export Growth Accelerates in January
 
5a8a3c07a1f65.jpg
 
Japanese exports increased for the fourth straight month in January as shipments to Asian and western Europe grew. 
 
Exports climbed 12.2 percent year on year in January, figures according to the Ministry of Finance. Exports increased 9.3 percent in December. 
 
Outbound shipments to Asia were up 16 percent while those to western Europe rose 20.8 percent. Imports also increased in January, climbing 7.9 percent year on year, short of the 8.3 increase percent forecast by economists. 
 
U.S.-bound shipments were 1.2 percent higher in the year to January, led by steel, batteries and medicines, while car shipments declined 3.9 percent. The small rise in U.S.-bound exports followed a 3.0 percent gain in the previous month. 
 
Those numbers resulted in a trade deficit of ¥943.4 billion ($8.9 billion). Economists expect exports will continue to expand in the coming months, led by demand for the semiconductor-related products that lifted exports in 2017. 
 
Analysts are also wary about a rising yen as well as the U.S. stance towards protectionism ahead of the mid-term elections later this year, and potential effects on Japan's exports of cars and other products. 
 
A strong yen erodes profits at Japanese manufacturers and could hurt the otherwise buoyant economy, which posted an eighth consecutive quarter of growth in October-December. 
 
The yen was flat against the dollar at ¥106.31 following the publication of the trade figures.

New Zealand Services Growth Robust In January
 
1.jpg
 
New Zealand's service sector activity continued to expand strongly in January, survey figures from Business NZ showed Monday. 
 
The performance of services index, or PSI, dropped to 55.8 in January from 56.0 in December. However, any reading above 50 indicates expansion in the sector. 
 
The sub-index for new orders fell below the 60.0 point mark for the first time since April last year. It declined to 57.6 from 60.1. 
 
"While the PSI is relatively robust, combined with the Performance of Manufacturing Index it nonetheless signals something of a slowing in GDP growth for the near term," Craig Ebert, senior economist at Business NZ, said.

EU Names Spain’s de Guindos as Next ECB Vice-Chair
 
5a8b9b8ebe351.jpg
 
Eurozone's finance ministers selected Spanish Economy Minister Luis de Guindos to succeed European Central Bank Vice President Vitor Constancio in May, a move that is seen to increase the odds of a German official becoming the head of the central bank next year. 
 
Choosing a Southern European for the position increases the possibility that a northerner such as German Bundesbank governor Jens Weidmann could be voted to take the place of Mario Draghi as the leader of the ECB in 2019. The decision could have an impact to the bank's ultra-loose monetary policy for the common currency zone. 
 
In a statement released by the EU following a short discussion among finance ministers, the Eurogroup backed the candidacy of Luis de Guindos for the position of Vice President of the European Central Bank. After the selection, De Guindos said he would step down from his post as Economy Minister within days. 
 
A number of EU legislators opposed his appointment as ECB Vice-President on worries that the nomination of a politician could impact the independence of ECB, a criticism that was dismissed by De Guindos. 
 
Initially, there were two candidates for the post: De Guindos and Irish central bank governor Philip Lane. Ireland decided to withdraw Lane's name for the position.
