    Largest Diamond Fails to Sell in Sotheby London Auction



    The 1,109-carat diamond Lesedi la Rona or “our light” remained unsold at an auction at London after the highest bid of $61 million didn't meet the minimum expected selling price. The diamond was expected to sell at $86 million. However, the highest bid only reached $61 million, far from the given “reserve price”, leaving the biggest diamond found in more than 100 years unsold at a Sotheby's auction on Wednesday.

    It is unclear what will happen to the diamond after the auction, but analysts are now looking at the potential of a private sale, most likely in a deal where Lucara Diamond Corp., the company who owns the Karowe mine where the diamond was unearthed, will still have some interest from the polished stones.

    BoJ Tankan: Business Sentiment Unchanged In Q2



    An index monitoring business sentiment in Japan was steady in the second quarter of 2016, the Bank of Japan said on Friday in its quarterly Tankan business survey. The large manufacturers' index came in with a score of +6, beating forecasts for +4 and unchanged from the previous quarter. The outlook also came in at +6, beating forecasts for +3, which would have been unchanged from Q1. The survey is closely watched by the Bank of Japan for formulating policies. Large industry capex for the current fiscal year is now seen higher by 6.2 percent, above forecasts for an increase of 5.6 percent and up sharply from the 0.9 percent decline seen in the previous quarter. The large non-manufacturers index was at 19, matching expectations although down from 22 in the previous quarter. The outlook score was 17, in line with forecasts and unchanged. The small manufacturing index came in at -5, beating expectations for -6 but down from -4 in the first quarter. The outlook was -7, in line with forecasts after showing -6 in the three months prior. The small non-manufacturing index had a score of 0, missing forecasts for 1 and down from 4 in the previous quarter. The outlook came in at -4, shy of forecasts for -2 and down from -3 in the three months prior. The sentiment indexes are derived by subtracting the percentage of respondents who say conditions are poor from those who say they are good. A positive reading means optimists outnumber pessimists.

    Tony Blair Suggest Leaders Remain Calm



    Former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair call for a sense of urgency when dealing with the process of the European Union negotiations. Blair recently declared that “our nation is in peril” following the referendum and added that a foreseeable complex relationship will soon be shared with other countries. Further on, he urged politicians to act with “genuine patriotic regard” in relation to the future of the country. Surprised by how distant and uncertain former European partners to Britain are today he goes off with a concerned tone.

    Blair suggests that in troubling times such as this the nation must portray a calm united front of supporting each other. The Labour party politician insists that this not be the time for another argument regarding the referendum and that politicians must be open to anything. He also mentioned for leaders to keep a cautious eye on Ukip leader Nigel Farage at the European parliament

    Fxwirepro: Silver Rises 3.25 Pct to $20.42, Marks Highest Since August 2014



    XAG/USD is currently trading around $20.35 marks.
    It made intraday high at $20.43 and low at $19.65 levels.
    Intraday bias remains bullish till the time pair holds immediate support at $19.70 marks. A sustained close above $20.43 tests key resistances at $20.78, $21.09 and $21.46 marks respectively.
    On the other side, a daily close below $20.00 will take the parity down towards key supports at $19.88, $19.48, $19.34, $19.12 and $19.09 marks respectively.
    Important to note here that in a daily chart, 20D, 30D and 55D EMA heads up and confirms the bullish trend.

    We prefer to take long position in XAG/USD only above $20.43, stop loss at $19.70 and target $20.78/ $21.09 mark

    Line Lifts IPO Price Range to Meet High Demand



    Japan's Line Corp., the nation's biggest messaging application operator moved its price range for an upcoming IPO by as much as 115.5 billion yen or $1.12 billion due to the strong demand.

    Line lifted its price range from 2,700 yen to 3,200 yen a share up to 2,900 yen to 3,300 yen or $28.50-$32.50 a share. The company is targeting a dual listing in Tokyo and New York scheduled on July 14 and 15. It is expected to be the biggest technology listing so far in 2016.

    Line stated in a news release that its decision to lift its price range has factored in demand trends and the current stock market environment that revealed that investors remain interested on the IPO regardless of the market disruption post-Brexit.

    The Japanese firm is offering 13 million shares and 22 million shares in Japan and New York, respectively. An additional 5.25 million shares could be offered via a “green shoe” option, which enables the offering of more shares in case of exceptional demand.

    BlackBerry to Halt Classic Smartphone Model Production



    BlackBerry Ltd. will stop manufacturing the BlackBerry Classic, an updated version of the original and classic model that made the company a smartphone trendsetter before other smartphone giants Apple Inc. and Samsung Electronics Co. unseated it.

    CEO John Chen unveiled the Classing after becoming part of the firm back in 2013, reviving the Blackberry's signature raised-button keyboard. The resolution to out phase the Classic is another step to continue the extermination of the BB10 OS, which will now only be operating on Passport model, as they change focus to new phones running on Android platform.

    In addition to BlackBerry's introductory Android phone model, the Priv, the firm is also working on two more Android phones.

    BlackBerry dropped 2.3% to $6.61 at 12 noon in NY. The stock has plunged 27% so far this year.

    Moody's: Korea's Public Sector Reforms Present Mid- and Long-Term Credit Challenges for State-owned Companies



    Moody's Investors Service says that the Korean government's (Aa2 stable) planned public-sector reforms will raise the risk of credit quality erosion for many rated infrastructure and corporate government-related issuers (GRIs) and their subsidiaries over the medium and long term. "Such issuers will face rising medium- and long-term credit challenges, as a result of the reforms, because a stable regulatory and policy environment has been a key factor underpinning their issuer ratings, which incorporate the probability of extraordinary government or parental support," says Mic Kang, a Moody's Vice President and Senior Analyst. "However, the credit quality of these rated issuers will mostly remain steady over the next 1-2 years because the Korean government's reform plan, announced on 14 June 2016, calls for only moderate changes in the operations of most companies," says Kang. Kang was speaking on Moody's recently-released sector-in-depth report on Korea's GRI sector, "Government-Related Issuers -- Korea: Public-Sector Reforms Raise Medium- to Long-Term Credit Challenges". The report was authored by Kang and Wan Hee Yoo, a Moody's Vice President and Senior Analyst. "Of the rated state-owned companies, Korea Resources Corporation will likely be the most exposed to reform-related challenges, owing to its waning policy role," says Yoo. We also note that the government intends to downsize Korea Resources Corporation's (Aa3 negative) mining investment business and loss-making mining portfolio. In contrast, although Korea National Oil Corporation (Aa2 stable) also recorded a sizeable impairment loss in 2015, its strategic importance will likely remain largely intact, given its continued ownership of major oil and gas exploration and production assets, and an oil stockpiling business. Uncertainty over the future ownership structures of Korea Electric Power Corporation's (KEPCO, Aa2 stable) six power-generating companies (gencos) -- all rated Aa2 with stable outlooks -- clouds their credit profiles in the medium to long term. The six gencos are Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power Company Limited, Korea South-East Power Co., Ltd., Korea East-West Power Co., Ltd., Korea Midland Power Co., Ltd., Korea Western Power Co., Ltd. and Korea Southern Power Co., Ltd. The potential listing of the gencos also raises the possibility of further government reform that could lead to changes in their relationships with their parent. On the other hand, over the next 1-2 years, KEPCO will likely maintain controlling stakes in the subsidiaries, given that only 20%-30% stakes will be offered in the planned listings. We believe that the regulated power and gas utility companies -- KEPCO, Korea Gas Corporation (Kogas, Aa2 stable) and Korea District Heating Corporation (KDHC, A1 stable) -- will be able to cope with proposed reforms. The planned progressive opening up of KEPCO's retail electricity sales and Kogas' natural gas import for wholesaling to private companies, and KDHC's issuance of new shares to private investors are unlikely to reduce their strategic importance, or the likelihood of the government's extraordinary support. However, their credit profiles will likely be under pressure, if the government further dilutes the policy roles of the three utilities and/or its stake in KDHC in the future.
