    Euro and shares fall on ECB inaction

    DAILY MARKET REVIEWS
    by Arne Treholt Vice-President of Business Development and Investments


    The US and the European central banks had created strong market expectations prior to their meetings this week. Both failed to deliver. The Federal Reserve presented a vaguely formulated statement, which fell short of any clear indications of active monetary steps to stimulus to boost a stagnating US-economy. The European Central Bank, ECB, followed up with an equally dubious statement leaving to anybody guess, whether Europe has the will or intentions to come to grip with the sovereign debt crisis. Interest rates on Spanish and Italian bonds fell.

    The markets reacted as expected by sending global stocks down and putting the Euro under new downward pressure. ECB President Mario Draghi’s powerful statement last Friday saved the Euro for one week. After ECB’s inaction, EURO/USD sniffed on the bottom level from last week, 1.2125, to trade at 1.2176 in opening hours in Asia. Draghi’s tactics to try force action from other ECB members had obviously failed. This week has again demonstrated that Germany is the European economic powerhouse. Germany is pulling the string regardless of policy statements.

    After steep falls in Europe and US; Dow Jones fell 0,71 % and Nasdaq 0,36%, Asian stock exchanges were down for the third day in row. Reports on falling oil storages in US keeps Brent crude above USD 106 a barrel. Gold (1590) and silver (27,18) are as other commodities under renewed downward pressure after the one week mini “expectation’s” rally. Japanese yen is the winner in the currencies market. USD/JPY trading at 78,1955. British Pounds, GDP, is falling against USD. USD/GDP trades close to 1.55 after 3long being stabile around the 1,57 mark against the dollar.

    Today’s trading in Europe and US shall give an indication on whether global markets shall continue to fall through August to build up new expectations for active FED and ECB economic stimulus after the holidays in September. The slow trend towards parity between USD and Euro is expected to continue.

    Facebook’s share price came under new pressure yesterday and fell 4 % to USD 20 a share. This after doubts on the real FB number of subscribers. FB has a high number of duplicate accounts many clients registering cats, dogs, and pets.

    Shares rally on US jobs

    DAILY MARKET REVIEWS
    by Arne Treholt Vice-President of Business Development and Investments


    Asian markets rallied in the morning hours today, following stronger than expected US jobs data and renewed optimism for European action on the debt crisis. The Euro touched a one-month high against USD reaching 1.2415, before falling back and trading on 1.2391. Oil prices also jumped on 63 000 new jobs added in US in July. Brent crude is trading at 108,48. Precious metals are stronger: Gold is at 1605.

    The US jobs data gave US and European stocks a strong boost Friday after disappointing news from US Federal Reserve and the European Central bank, ECB, earlier in the week.
    The overwhelming positive reaction on the US jobs data underscores global markets nervousness and volatility. A deeper look into Friday’s figures show that after job’s losing months, July’s employment kept track with jobs lost. The unemployment increased from 8,1 to 8,2 percent, and gives no reason for long standing jubilation in a market hungry for any news which can be interpreted as positive.

    The jobs data has given the market a relief and bigger risk appetite for now with expectations once more building up for possible FED and ECB actions in September. However, caution shall likely remain until concrete measures are taken. The ECB statement last week demonstrated that Germany and the German Central Bank still are firmly in control, allowing no experiments from neither Francoise Holland nor Mario Draghi. Italian Prime Minister, Mario Monti, with his background as former EU-commissioner, expressed his frustration with the present development. In an interview with German Der Spiegel, Monti stated that the infighting between member countries has a devastating impact on the feeling of European unity.

    The focus in global markets would probably this week be more on Asia than US and a holiday month Europe. China is fine-tuning its monetary policies, and trade, bank loans, and investment figures would give an indication on whether China has reached the bottom and is back on the path to economic growth. Australian dollar continue to be strong. The dollar is weaker against most currencies, and USD/Yen is trading at 78,4622.

    EURO hits month high

    DAILY MARKET REVIEWS
    by Arne Treholt Vice-President of Business Development and Investments


    The Euro/USD hits its highest level in one month reaching 1.2444 during yesterday’s trade. The currency kept steady at 1.24 in Asian trading this morning. The Euro is supported by hopes that the European Central Bank, ECB, soon will take action to lower borrowing costs for Spain and Italy. Interest rate on both Spain and Italian bond fell yesterday on expectations that ECB may again start to buy government bonds. USD is as on Monday falling against most currencies on bigger risk appetite. USD/JPY trades at 78,256.

    Oil prices rose for a second straight session closing at its highest level in 11 weeks. Brent crude is trading close to USD 109 a barrel as US stock markets extended its strong Friday rally on supportive US jobs data calmed concerns about a slowing economy, and hopes that Europe will be able to effectively address its debt crisis. Violence in Syria and Iran’s dispute with Western countries over Tehran’s nuclear program continued to worry investors about the potential threat to the oil supplies from the region.

    Shares in Asia were again up on expectations that Europe will take actions to tackle the debt crisis and further hopes that China and the United States will adopt stimulus measures to boost economic growth. The Australian dollar continues to trade up. Major Chinese data are expected on Thursday, giving investors a better idea to judge whether the world’s second-largest economy is back on the strong growth path after a lackluster first half year. The South Asian Pacific index, MSCI, inched marginally up in trading Tuesday morning.

    Markets rally; stabile currencies

    DAILY MARKET REVIEWS
    by Arne Treholt Vice-President of Business Development and Investments


    Stock markets in Europe, United States continued to rally through yesterday and in Asia this morning as investors bet on policymakers willingness to act decisively on the euro zone debt crisis and undertake measures to boost economic growth.
    Oil prices rose, and reached a 12-week high. Brent crude jumped two dollar to 111. Copper, a growth barometer, is up while the Euro stabilized around 1.24 against the USD. Safe haven bonds suffered from weakening demands. Gold (1610) and Silver (28,05) are trading higher.

    The more optimistic market sentiments gave equities a boost globally. The US S&P rose to its highest level since early May and was close to breaking through the technical resistance on 1400. A convincing break through 1400 will signal further buying.
    The Asian MICS-index is up for its fourth day in row. The Australian dollar, strongly influenced by commodity prices and economic growth reached a four-month high yesterday. USD has weakened on greater risk appetite as investors again gamble on smaller currencies. The Japanese yen seen as a safe haven is also weaker.

    Last week US regulators accused HSBC, the Hong Kong Shanghai banking giant, for money laundering presumably accepting funds from Mexican drug cartels to be white washed. Yesterday New York banking regulators directed a blistering attack on the British Standard Chartered Bank. According to the regulators, the bank had allegedly money laundered over USD 250 Billion in transactions tied to Iran in violation of US sanctions.

    These new accusations have raised eyebrows. The initiative against Standard Charter was according to informed sources, taken by an over-zealous freshman. The regulator did neither consult the US Treasury department nor the Federal Reserve before the decision was taken. This has created irritations and also questions whether the action might be politically motivated.
    Standard Charter is the third bank after Berkley and HSBC, which US regulators have lashed out against in the last month. This has created questions whether this may be regarded as a witch-hunt against foreign banks competing in the US market.

    Standard hits back on a “lonely” cowboy

    DAILY MARKET REVIEWS
    by Arne Treholt Vice-President of Business Development and Investments


    Standard hits back on a “lonely” cowboy

    Standard Charter bank accused of laundering of Iran-funds in violation of US sanctions, hit back on New York banking regulator, Benjamin Lawsky yesterday. Critics claimed Lawsky had acted as “ a lonely cowboy” revealing information from an ongoing investigation. The Bank was supported by Mervin King of the British Central Bank, who accused Lawsky to march to his own tune, out of step with federal Washington regulators.

    The stock prices of Standard Charter tumbled, but recovered when Standard Charter countered the allegations finding them “wholly disproportionate”. This is the third attack by US regulators on major British and international banks within a short period. This has raised eyebrows and led to double standard suspicions that US authorities are treating their own banks differently than their competitors. Back in 2006 a Standard Bank executive director according to leaked information, lashed out at the US and told: “who are you tell us and the rest of the world how to deal with the Iranians”.

    The banking rhetoric somewhat overshadowed yesterdays market news. Equity markets in Europe and US were flat, while Asia was up for the fourth day in row helped by strong jobs data and reduced unemployment in Australia. The Japanese Central Bank stated willingness to undertake growth measures. The MSCI Asia Pacific Index is up 3,5 % in three trading days hitting its highest level in three months. Stimulus expectations are driving the upturn.

    The Euro slipped back against the USD yesterday trading down from the 1.24 level to 1.2350. EURO/USD is at present at 1.2379. USD/JPY is at 78,4625 marginally up from Tuesday. Oil prices are high with Brent crude trading at 112. Gold and silver are as copper up.

    Chinese trade data disappoints markets

    DAILY MARKET REVIEWS
    by Arne Treholt Vice-President of Business Development and Investments


    The European debt crisis and global fear for sluggish economic growth in China are back in the headlines. The Euro came yesterday under renewed pressure. EURO/USD lost more than 100 points from its 1.24 level; to recover in Asia trading at 1.2295. A four day stocks rally in Asia came to an abrupt halt as China’s export and import data for July fell short of expectations. The same did trade figures from other Asian countries influenced by the negative growth and recession in Europe.

    China’s export in July were up only one percent from previous year, while markets had expected a 8,6 % increase. Imports were marginally lower than the forecast of 7,4 % growth and posted 7,2 percent. The data had a negative impact on commodities, the China reliant Australian dollar and equities. Brent crude is down, but still trading at 112,95 after reaching 113 on Wednesday. Gold lost some dollars and fell to 1612 an ounce. Jobless claims in the US came in better than expected. 361 000 filed claims against the expected 370 000. The US trade balances were also marginally better than forecasts.

    The recent data shall raise expectations for concerted economic stimulus measures after the summer holidays in May. After creating a short August rally more based on hopes and wishful thinking than realities and fundamentals, markets are this morning back in a sober mood. Analysts are expressing serious doubts on whether new European summits would be able to get Europe out of its present impasse. The new Greek government seems unable to come to grip with its debt situation.

    In spite of the fact that ECB President, Mario Monti, for a short time was able to talk interest rates on Italian and Spanish bonds down, the Euro zone has not even inched closer to solving its sovereign debt and banking crisis. The upward pressure on interest rates levels on the exposed southern European countries shall probably be back in the headlines within soon.

    The technical resistance level on Euro/USD is around 1.18 which it reached during the 2008 – 2009 financial crisis, is going to come under new pressure. As long as words are not substituted by concrete measures the downward trend on EURO/USD is most likely going to continue. Don’t be surprised to see 1.10 during the next months; inching towards parity in 2013.
