    UK House Prices Rise For First Time In 3 Months: Rightmove



    British house prices climbed at the start of the year, after declining in the previous two months, the latest house price balance from property tracking website Rightmove showed on Monday. The house price index rose slightly by 0.5 percent month-over-month in January, in contrast to a 1.1 percent decrease in December. "With their asking prices pretty much the same as a month ago, perhaps the knock-on effects of the more punitive landlord tax regime have arrived early and they now face a dilemma over whether to buy now or wait to see if prices drop in this sector over the next few months," Miles Shipside, co-founder of Rightmove, said. On an annual basis, house prices house prices grew at a slower pace of 6.5 percent in January, following a 7.4 percent surge in the prior month.

    Oversupply may saturate oil market, says IEA



    Oversupply may submerge the overall crude oil market until at least in the latter part of 2016 due to increasing supply and unusual warm weather. Based on the International Energy Agency's monthly report, such factors could push oil prices lower than its present 12-year troughs. It also warned of more price declines ahead. Also, the IEA said oil supply worldwide could surpass demand by 1.5 million barrels per day in the first half of the year, with Iran adding 600,000 bpd by mid-2016 and other nations keeping current output. Brent futures LCOc1, sliding below $30 a barrel, have hit its lowest level since late 2003 after the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries decided not to reduce output to stop the price decline amid oversupply.

    Fitch: Rising Interest Rates to Ease Taiwan Life Insurers' Negative Spreads



    Fitch Ratings says in a new report that a persistent decline in the costs of insurance liabilities and improvements in recurring investment yields on rising market interest rates will reduce Taiwanese life insurers' negative interest spreads. However, the Sector Outlook remains Negative as Fitch expects that the high guaranteed rates of legacy policies will still constrain the sector's profitability at least in the near term. Life insurers' costs of insurance liabilities have been dropping by about 10 bp per year with inflows of low-guaranteed-rate policies. Fitch estimates that large insurers have lower funding costs at below 3.5% after including mortality/morbidity and loading gains, versus above 4.5% for some small insurers. Rising interest rates would help improve returns from life insurers' assets, which have shorter duration than their insurance liabilities. Asset risk is the key concern in the life sector, as life insurers have taken significant overseas investments at 55.7% of invested assets at end-August 2015. They are increasingly involved in corporate bonds, financial debentures and sovereign bonds of emerging markets, shifting from treasuries and agency bonds issued by developed countries. Their capitalisation, therefore, is vulnerable to unfavourable movements in the capital and currency markets. For non-life insurers, their Stable Sector Outlook is supported by strong capital buffers and satisfactory underwriting performance, with combined ratios generally below 95%. Non-life insurers' aggregate equity-to-assets ratio was 32% at end-August 2015. They had also accumulated claims equalisation reserves of 13% of total assets by end-2014. The sector's underwriting leverage remains low, at around 1x between 2011 and 2014, as measured by net premiums written/shareholders' equity.

    Wall Street slumps to 2014 trough as oil prices hit 2003 lows



    Wall Street plummeted as the S&P 500 touched its lowest since October 2014 and US oil prices plunged to 2003 troughs. US crude slid 6.6% as a supply glut affected bearish financial reports, aggravating woes over demand. But a bounce in US oil prices helped counter losses in stocks. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 15,766.74 points, down 1.56%. The Nasdaq Composite ended at 4,471.69, down 0.12%. The S&P 500 settled at 1,859.33, down 1.17%. Also, the CBOE volatility index was at 27.59, up 5.9%.
