Gold Gives Up Early Gains, Tracking Volatile Euro-Dollar Amid German Political Uncertainty

Gold eased Monday, giving up early gains seen amid German political uncertainty. Relative stability for the euro as Monday™s trading session progressed helped the shared currency against the dollar, dulling some of the early demand shown for the haven metal. Gold may consolidate short term after prices rallied Friday to a more than one-month high. The metal tacked on nearly 1.8% for last week, as the latest developments in the investigation into Russia™s interference in the U.S....

GBP/USD - Recovery Continues, Focus on German Politics and Brexit

GBP/USD has recovered more than 50% of its intraday losses but is struggling build momentum above 1.32 levels. The collapse of the German coalition talks and the resulting action in Asia (weak EUR, GBP) clearly indicates that investors fear "all major decisions, including Brexit negotiations" could be put on hold till the situation in Germany is sorted out. Thus, GBP could remain under pressure in Europe. The data calendar is light, but BoE Deputy Governor David Ramsden, who voted against...

Japanese Stocks Drop After Yen Advances Amid U.S. Tax Wrangle

Japanese stocks fell after the yen posted the biggest weekly gain against the dollar in more than two months as the U.S. Congress wrangled over tax reform plans. The Topix index declined after the benchmark completed its worst week in seven months, following a slide in U.S. equities on Friday. Banks dropped after U.S. 10-year Treasury yields fell, while electronics makers contributed the most to the Topix™s retreat. The yen strengthened against the euro as German Chancellor Angela...

Euro Shrugs Off German Impasse as Stocks Struggle

The euro reversed early losses as investors judged the failure of German Chancellor Angela Merkel™s coalition talks unlikely to harm the outlook for the region™s economy. German stocks remained lower with European peers, however. The dollar was little changed and Treasuries nudged higher. The Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index increased less than 0.05 percent. The euro rose 0.1 percent to $1.1798, the strongest in almost four weeks. The British pound climbed 0.4 percent to $1.3264, the...

BOJ Keeps Stimulus Unchanged as It Trims Inflation Outlook
Tuesday, 31 October 2017 11:30 WIB | FISCAL & MONETARY |MoneterBOJ

The Bank of Japan left its massive monetary stimulus program unchanged even as it trimmed its inflation forecasts, signaling further divergence ahead from its global peers.

Governor Haruhiko Kuroda and the board voted on Tuesday to maintain the central bank™s yield curve control program and asset purchases, a result predicted by all 43 economists surveyed by Bloomberg. The vote was 8-1, with new board member Goushi Kataoka dissenting.

The BOJ is under little pressure to take additional action even though inflation is well below its 2 percent target. Japan™s economy is on track for the longest expansion in 16 years, stocks are at the highest level in two decades and the labor market is the tightest in a generation. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe™s election win this month has raised expectations that the central bank™s current policy stance will continue, making any turn toward the exit even trickier, according to former board member Sayuri Shirai.

œThe BOJ is going to continue to sit tight for a while, Hiroshi Shiraishi, a senior economist at BNP Paribas SA, said before the decision. œFrom economic growth to stocks and the yen, they are all performing in favor of the BOJ.

The nine-member board maintained its view that its 2 percent target is likely to be met around the fiscal year that starts in April 2019. BOJ™s key inflation gauge, which strips out fresh food, rose 0.7 percent in September, a government report showed last week.

The central bank doesn™t see the need to expand its stimulus because it has concluded that the improving output gap and tightening labor market will continue to push inflation higher over the longer term, people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg earlier this month.

Kuroda has stressed the importance of continuing monetary easing even as the BOJ lags behind its counterparts in turning toward policy normalization. The European Central Bank unveiled a plan to reduce bond purchases last week and investors see more than an 80 percent chance of another rate hike by the Federal Reserve in December.

Kataoka, a reflationist who joined the board in July, said at today™s meeting that it™s appropriate for the BOJ to buy Japanese government bonds so that the 15-year yield would remain at less than 0.2 percent.

He also dissented from the inflation overshooting commitment, saying that if there was a delay in reaching the price target due to domestic factors, the BOJ should take additional easing.
