    Dollar Surges to One-Month High Amid Mixed Economic Data



    Following mixed U.K. economic data, the dollar has surged to its highest close since July 8 by 0.3 percent against the British pound. The WSJ Dollar Index has dropped to 0.3 percent with 86.63 while the dollar decreased against the Canadian dollar and the Japanese Yen.

    A business survey from the U.K. has indicated that the like-for-like sales have grown by 1.1 percent in July however manufacturing data was lower-than-expected while trade gap is expanding. The dollar has prolonged declines against currencies of emerging markets which remain strong, implying that investors believe that the Fed will not raise rates in the upcoming term.

    The dollar has reached its lowest level last seen in July 2015 when it was weak against the Brazilian real by 0.9 percent, down by 0.6 percent against the Mexican peso and fell by 1.1 percent against the South African rand.

    Higher Open Tipped For Malaysia Stock Market



    The Malaysia stock market has tracked higher in back-to-back sessions, collecting more than 7 points or 0.4 percent along the way. The Kuala Lumpur Composite Index settled just beneath the 1,680-point plateau, and the market may extend its gains on Friday.

    The global forecast for the Asian markets is upbeat thanks to solid earnings news and a rebound in the price of crude oil. The European and U.S. markets were up, and the Asian bourses figure to follow suit.

    The KLCI finished modestly higher on Thursday following gains from the financial shares and plantations.

    For the day, the index gained 5.77 points or 0.34 percent to finish at the daily high of 1,678.80 after trading as low as 1,670.63. Volume was 1.85 billion shares worth 1.66 billion ringgit.

    Among the actives, MISC, Sime Darby, CIMB Group, Maybank, Public Bank, Aeon Credit and RCE Capital all finished higher.

    The lead from Wall Street is positive as stocks moved higher on Thursday as the major averages reached new record closing highs.

    The Dow added 117.86 points or 0.6 percent to 18,613.52, while the NASDAQ rose 23.81 points or 0.5 percent to 5,228.40 and the S&P 500 climbed 10.30 points or 0.5 percent to 2,185.79.

    Stocks got an early lift from the retail sector after solid earnings news from Macy's (M), Kohl's (KSS) and Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba (BABA).

    Additional support followed a rebound in the price of crude oil, which came after Saudi Arabia's Energy Minister said oil producing nations may discuss possible action to stabilize the market.

    In economic news, the Labor Department reported that initial jobless claims edged slightly lower in the week ended August 6 - as well as an unexpected uptick in import prices in July.

    Closer to home, Malaysia will release Q2 figures for GDP and current account later today. In the previous three months, GDP was up 1.0 percent on quarter and 4.2 percent on year, while the current account surplus was 5.04 billion ringgit.

    Wall St. Lenders Ask Fed Five Years Extension of Conformance Period for Volcker Rule



    According to sources, large Wall Street banks are requesting five more years of grace period from the U.S. Federal Reserve to comply with the Volcker rule, a financial reform regulation. The additional grace period comes after three one-year extensions and is set to begin in 2017 and end in 2022.

    The extension would give them more time to sell-off fund investments that are hard to sell and will be deemed illegal by the law. Banks can ask for additional five-year extension to depart with illiquid funds under the law on Volcker rule implementation.

    Banks asking for the extension includes Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs and other banks.

    New Zealand Services Sector Slows In July



    The services sector in New Zealand continued to expand in July, albeit at a slower pace, the latest survey from Business NZ revealed on Monday with a Performance of Services Index score of 54.2.

    That's down from the downwardly revised 56.4 (originally 56.7).

    It remains well above the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

    Gold Increases Due to Weak Dollar and Economic Data from Japan



    Gold prices increased as the weak U.S. dollar and the poor economic data from Asia aided in reversing early losses. Gold for December delivery closed by 0.3 percent with $1,347.50 per troy ounce on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange.

    The data which has shown that Japan's economy has stalled during the second quarter by expanding by an annualized 0.2 percent also supported the precious metal according to ETF Securities' commodities strategist Nitesh Shah. Gold is seen as a haven from currency weakness and inflation and so loose monetary policy will likely increase the demand for the precious metal.

    Gold had momentarily increased above $1,360 on Friday following the reporting of the weak U.S. retail sales figures, and had settled lower.

    Several FOMC Policymakers Suggest Interest Rate Hike Needed Soon - Fed Minutes



    Federal Reserve officials have kept their choices open during the July policy meeting, as some members expect that an increase in U.S. interest rates is needed again soon. According to the Fed's meeting, the consensus is that further data is needed before making a final decision with some officials expecting that economic conditions would soon justify extracting policy accommodation.

    The meeting has shown that officials of the U.S. Central Bank's Federal Open Market Committee were mostly upbeat regarding the U.S. economic outlook as well as the labor market, however several claim that a slowdown in the pace of hiring for the future may argue against a near-term hike. The broader group of policymakers have conveyed their concern regarding low interest rates as it could affect financial stability.

    Major U.S. stock averages closed flat, which was slightly higher prior to the Fed minutes' publication while the U.S. dollar reached a session low against the yen at around 100.15 yen. Yields were pushed lower as longer-dated U.S. Treasury prices surged to session highs.
