    Facebook glides Wall Street higher



    The Wall Street soared as Facebook Inc.'s stellar quarterly report bolstered tech stocks higher and a leap in oil prices lifted up the energy sector. The social media company shares surged 15.5%, its largest one-day bounce since 2013, as digital advertising soared 52% in fourth quarter revenue. The S&P tech sector rose 1.48% as Alphabet advanced 4.28%. The S&P energy sector climbed 3.15% as oil prices increased almost 3%. Earnings from Facebook and other companies, as well as oil prices rebound were the forces behind most of the day's improved sentiment. But investors cautioned the accelerations could be short-lived.

    Commodity Currencies Slide As China Manufacturing PMI Disappoints



    Commodity currencies such as the Australian, the New Zealand and the Canadian dollars weakened against their major counterparts in the Asian session on Monday, after data showed that the manufacturing sector in China continued to contract in January. Data from the National Bureau of Statistics showed that the manufacturing sector in China continued to contract in January, and at a faster rate, with a PMI score of 49.4. That was shy of forecasts for 49.6, and was down from 49.7 in December. The government also said that its non-manufacturing PMI came in at 53.5 in January, down from 54.4 in the previous month but still safely in expansion territory. The results of a private survey released by Caixin showed that the manufacturing sector in China continued to contract in January, although at a slower pace, with a PMI score of 48.4. That topped forecasts for a reading of 48.1, and was also up from 48.2 in December. In other economic news, data from the Australian Industry Group showed that the manufacturing sector in Australia continued to expand in January, albeit at a slightly slower pace, with a PMI score of 51.5. That's down from 51.9 in December. In all, the index has expanded in seven straight months. Last Friday, the Australian dollar rose 0.18 percent against the U.S. dollar, 1.83 percent against the yen and 0.99 percent against the euro. The NZ dollar rose 0.44 percent against the U.S. dollar, 2.10 percent against the yen and 1.09 percent against the euro. The Canadian dollar rose 1.93 percent against the yen and 1.41 percent against the euro. Meanwhile, the Canadian dollar held steady against the greenback. In the Asian trading, the Australian dollar fell to a 6-day low of 0.9861 against the Canadian dollar and a 4-day low of 0.7042 against the U.S. dollar, from Friday's closing quotes of 0.9892 and 0.7082, respectively. If the aussie extends its downtrend, it is likely to find support around 0.97 against the loonie and 0.69 against the greenback. Against the yen and the euro, the aussie dropped to 85.31 and 1.5388 from last week's closing quotes of 85.79 and 1.5285, respectively. The aussie may test support near 81.00 against the yen and 1.59 against the euro. Meanwhile, the aussie slipped to 1.0901 against the NZ dollar, from Friday's closing value of 1.0914 and held steady thereafter. The NZ dollar fell to a 4-day low of 0.6449 against the U.S. dollar, from Friday's closing value of 0.6478. If the kiwi extends its downtrend, it is likely to find support around the 0.63 area. Against the yen and the euro, the kiwi edged down to 78.12 and 1.6802 from last week's closing value of 78.49 and 1.6691, respectively. The kiwi may test support near 74.00 against the yen and 1.62 against the euro. The Canadian dollar dropped to 1.5204 against the euro and 1.4013 against the U.S. dollar, from an early near 4-week high of 1.5111 and a 4-day high of 1.3966, respectively. The loonie may test support 1.56 near against the euro and 1.44 against the greenback. Against the yen, the loonie edged down to 86.48 from an early high of 86.92. If the loonie extends its downtrend, it is likely to find support around the 82.00 area. Looking ahead, final manufacturing PMI reports from major European economies for January and U.K. mortgage approvals data for December are due to be released later in the day. In the New York session, U.S. personal income and spending data for December, U.S. construction spending for December and U.S. and Canada's flash manufacturing PMI for January are slated for release. At 11:00 am ET, European Central Bank President Mario Draghi will testify about the 2015 ECB Annual Report before the European Parliament, in Strasbourg. Federal Reserve Governor Stanley Fischer is scheduled to speak about the U.S. economy and monetary policy at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York at 1 pm ET.

    BOJ should continue hitting 2% inflation target - Ishihara



    Japan's Economy Minister Nobuteru Ishihara urged Bank of Japan should hold on to its goal of 2% inflation to boost the economy. The official said the BOJ's move to adopt negative interest rates will bolster the housing industry and capital expenditure, but he needs ample time to trail its effect.

    RBA Keeps Rates Unchanged



    Australia's central bank maintained its record low interest rate for the ninth straight meeting on Tuesday as widely expected by economists. The policy board of the Reserve Bank of Australia left its cash rate unchanged at 2.00 percent. Policymakers judged that there were reasonable prospects for continued growth in the economy, with inflation close to target. The Board therefore decided that the current setting of monetary policy remained appropriate. Members noted that the outlook for inflation may afford scope for further easing of policy, should that be appropriate to lend support to demand. "Over the period ahead, new information should allow the Board to judge whether the recent improvement in labour market conditions is continuing and whether the recent financial turbulence portends weaker global and domestic demand," the bank said in a statement.

    Australia December Retail Sales Flat On Month



    The total value of retail sales in Australia was unchanged in December on a seasonally adjusted basis, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said on Friday, worth A$24.759 billion.

Among the individual components, food retailing was up 0.4 percent, along with household goods retailing (0.4 percent), clothing, footwear and personal accessory retailing (0.4 percent) and department stores (0.4 percent). Other retailing (0.0 percent) and cafes, restaurants and takeaway food services (0.0 percent) were relatively unchanged.

Also on Friday, the Australian Industry Group said that the construction sector in Australia remained in contraction in January with a PMI score of 46.3. That's down from 46.8 in December, and it moves farther beneath the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction. Among the individual components of the survey, apartment building, commercial construction and engineering construction all contracted - while house building expanded for the second straight month. Activities and new orders remained in contraction, while supplier deliveries swung lower from expansion last month.

    Obama to proffer $10 per barrel tax on crude oil



    Next week, President Barack Obama will unveil a proposal to levy $10 a barrel on crude oil which would finance the rebuilding of the country's transportation infrastructure. According to the White House, the new tax would enable Obama's plan to create a precise concession for private sector transformation to invest in clean energy technologies and cut the country's dependence on oil. Legislators in the Congress, however, swifty criticized Obama's proposal. Obama has emphasized the United States must stop subsidizing fossil fuels and concentrate on clean fuels which do not worsen climate change.

Nominal GDP slipped 0.3 percent on quarter versus expectations for a fall of 0.1 percent following the upwardly revised 0.6 percent increase in the previous three months (originally 0.4 percent). The GDP deflator advanced 1.5 percent on year - also beneath forecasts for 1.6 percent and down from 1.8 percent in the third quarter. Private consumption tumbled 0.8 percent on quarter versus forecasts for a fall of 0.6 percent after gaining 0.4 percent in the previous three months. Capital expenditure gained 1.4 percent on quarter - topping expectations for a decline of 0.2 percent and accelerating from the 0.7 percent increase in the three months prior.
