    Treasuries Regain Ground Following Upbeat Jobs Data



    Following the sell-off seen in the previous session, treasuries regained some ground over the course of the trading day on Friday. Bond prices moved to the upside in morning trading before moving roughly sideways in the afternoon. As a result, the yield on the benchmark ten-year note, which moves opposite of its price, fell by 5.5 basis points to 2.275 percent. The ten-year yield partly offset the 15.2 basis point jump seen on Thursday but remains well above the one-month closing low it set on Tuesday. The rebound by treasuries came as traders went bargain hunting even amid the release of a Labor Department report showing stronger than expected job growth in the month of November. The report said non-farm payroll employment jumped by 211,000 jobs in November compared to economist estimates for an increase of about 190,000 jobs. Job growth in September and October was also upwardly revised to 145,000 jobs and 298,000 jobs, respectively, reflecting 35,000 more jobs than previously reported. The Labor Department also said the unemployment rate held at the more than seven-year low of 5.0 percent set in the previous month, matching expectations. The stronger than expected job growth further cemented expectations the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates later this month, although the pace of monetary policy normalization is expected to be gradual. Joel L. Naroff, President and Chief Economist at Naroff Economic Advisors, said, "There really is nothing except a major crisis that will stop the Fed from its appointed first round of rate hikes." "All it would have taken is a mediocre employment report to provide the necessary cover to raise rates and the November data were more than that," he added. A separate report from the Commerce Department showed that the U.S. trade deficit unexpectedly widened in October, as exports fell at a faster rate than imports. The Commerce Department said the trade deficit climbed to $43.9 billion in October from a revised $42.5 billion in September. Economists had expected the trade deficit to narrow to $40.6 billion in October from the $40.8 billion originally reported for the previous month. The economic calendar for next week starts off relatively quiet, although reports on producer prices and retail sales are likely to attract attention later in the week. Bond traders are also likely to keep an eye on the results of the Treasury Department's auctions of three-year and ten-year notes and thirty-year bonds. The Treasury is due to sell $24 billion worth of three-year notes next Tuesday, $21 billion worth of ten-year notes next Wednesday, and $13 billion worth of thirty-year bonds next Thursday.

    Fitch: Japanese Life Insurers Seek Overseas Growth Opportunities



    Japanese life insurers are likely to strengthen their insurance business outside Japan in 2016 while accumulating foreign bond holdings to improve their investment yield, Fitch Ratings says in a new report. The Rating Outlook for Japanese life insurers has been revised to Stable from Negative, to be consistent with the Outlook for the Japan sovereign (Long-Term Local-Currency Issuer Default Rating at A). This reflects the insurers' high concentration of Japanese government bonds (JGBs) in their investment portfolios. The Sector Outlook remains Stable due to the overall improvement in earnings and sufficient capitalisation. Several Japanese major life insurers have started to acquire sizable life insurance companies (for around JPY1.4trn in total) in developed markets such as the United States and Australia, following the overseas expansion plans of The Dai-ichi Life Insurance Company, Limited (Insurance Financial Strength (IFS) Rating A/Stable). Fitch believes this trend will continue, given the ageing and contracting population in Japan, and will monitor any integration and governance risks from international M&A. Japan's life insurers are likely to continue moderately accumulating foreign bonds to seek higher yield, if the very low bond yields in Japan (at around 1% for 20-year JGBs) persist. Fitch expects currency risks (especially versus US dollar) may increase further, if insurers raise unhedged portions. Although the increasing allocation to foreign bonds will provide broader diversification from the concentration on JGB, currency risks need to be managed effectively given the majority of the life insurance liabilities are still yen-denominated. Fitch expects the life insurers to maintain their strong earnings level and solid capital adequacy in 2016. The nine major traditional life insurers' core profit was JPY1,194bn in the first half of the financial year ending March 2016, up from JPY1,117bn a year earlier. The nine insurers' average statutory solvency margin ratio was 923.5% at end-September 2015, compared with 897.7% a year earlier. The view is supported by an improving investment spread owing to accumulated foreign bond investments and the moderately expanding profitable "third sector" (health) insurance product businesses. The report titled "2016 Outlook: Japanese Life Insurance" is available at www.fitchratings.com or by clicking on the link in this media release.

    Japan averts recession with revised Q3 GDP data



    Japan avoided a technical recession in the third quarter with the initial estimate of a contraction revised to an annualized growth of 1.0% from a preliminary reading of 0.8%. The revision, larger than an average market forecast for a revision to a 0.1% gain, implied the Japanese economy was in better shape than initially predicted. Cabinet Office reported capital expenditure was the main factor to the upgrade, revised up to a 0.6% increase from an initial decline of 1.3%. Despite the evasion of inflation, policymakers will remain under pressure to beef up growth by injecting additional stimulus measures.

    Australia Home Loans Slide 0.5% On Month In October



    The total number of owner-occupied home loans in Australia fell a seasonally adjusted 0.5 percent on month in October, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said on Wednesday - coming in at 55,571. The headline figure beat forecasts for a decline of 1.0 percent following the 2.0 percent increase in September. The construction of new dwellings slipped 0.4 percent on month to 5,750, while the purchase of new dwellings lost 1.6 percent to 2,953 and the purchase of established dwellings slid 0.5 percent to 46,868. The value of owner-occupied home loans added 0.4 percent on month to A$21.153 billion following the 3.0 percent jump a month earlier. Investment lending skidded 6.1 percent on month to A$11.490 billion following the 8.2 percent contraction in the previous month. The overall value of all loans slipped 2.0 percent to A$32.643 billion. Also on Wednesday, the latest survey from Westpac Bank showed that consumer confidence in Australia slowed in December as its index slipped 0.8 percent. That brings the index score down to 100.8, although it still remains above the 100-point level where optimists outnumber pessimists. In November, the index had jumped 3.9 percent to a reading of 101.7.

    Germany warns to overturn eurozone bank deposit scheme



    Germany's Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble warned he is prepared to bring the case to the court to overturn Brussels' plans for a eurozone deposit guarantee system. Schäuble also attacked the European Central Bank for promoting the scheme, saying it was not properly intermediating in a policy beyond its monetary remit. The minister specifically lashed out ECB Vice President Vitor Constâncio as the bank was running roughshod over rules mandating it to place a firewall between monetary policy decision making and bank supervision. The European Commission sought to guarantee Germany it is determined to contend with the remaining risks in the banking system and pool responsibility to backstop deposits as well. Deposits are insured up to €100,000 across the region.

    Ford to allocate $4.5 billion in developing electric car



    Ford Motor Co. announced a $4.5 billion investment aimed at creating more capable electric version of the Focus small car in 2016, the first of 13 new electric vehicles it pledged to develop in the next four years. The move came as carmakers, including General Motors Co., have committed to offering a wider array of long-range electric cars even as low gasoline prices decreases demand for more efficient automobiles. The upgraded Focus, which can travel 100 miles on a charge, will be produced late next year. It will also be equipped with new technology enabling drivers to charge the battery 80% in 30 minutes.
