    Fed Lifts Benchmark Interest Rate as Confidence in Economy Grows



    At the end of its two-day policy review, the U.S. Federal Reserve took a step to tighten monetary policy for the second time in three months.

    The 0.25 percentage point hike in the U.S. central bank's overnight interest rate was a move prompted by the steady economic growth, solid and consistent job gains and increasing confidence that inflation will move in accordance with the Fed's target, Fed Chair Janet Yellen said.

    The move was also perceived by the market as a strong indication that the Fed is entering a new period where they are looking to return the monetary policy to a more normal condition. Yellen indicated that the shift is due to the growing confidence in the economy's progress, which has grown according to the Fed's expectations in the last few months.

    The Fed also retained its outlook for two additional rate hikes this year and three more in the following year, in line with the number of rate increases they penciled in last year.

    The FOMC also noted that inflation was nearing the target of 2% and that capex has somehow improved following months of weakness.

    However, the Fed did not drop hints regarding its plans to accelerate the rate of monetary tightening.

    New Zealand Consumer Confidence Ebbs In March - ANZ



    Consumer confidence in New Zealand slowed in March, the latest survey from ANZ Bank showed on Friday as its index slipped 1.7 percent to a reading of 125.2.

    That follows the 1.0 percent decline in February to 127.4.

    However, it remains well above the boom-or-bust line of 100 that separates optimists from pessimists.

    EUR/KRW is currently trading around 1,213 mark.

    Pair made intraday high at 1,213 and low at 1,208 levels. Intraday bias remains bullish till the time pair holds key support at 1,208 mark.

    A daily close below 1,208 will drag the parity down towards key supports around 1,199, 1,191, 1,184, 1,178 and 1,163 marks respectively.

    Well-Funded Thai Oil Giants Seek Investments



    Thailand's PTT Exploration & Production Pcl and its parent firm have almost $11 billion combined in cash and marketable securities. According to Chief Executive Officer Somporn Vongvuthipornchai, the explorer and production company is prepared to spend from its portion on projects and exploration property to aid declining oil and gas reserves.

    PTT E&P is considering early-life producing assets or projects that are sanctioned and ready for development, he said. It is also thinking of working with its parent firm, PTT Pcl, to invest in liquefied natural gas plants, that will help meet Thailand's increasing demand. Proved reserves have declined from the equivalent of 1.1 billion barrels of oil in 2009 to 695 million in 2016. Oil's crash have made deals tough to close last year due to the difficulty in agreeing on long-term values.

    Somporn says that there is enough of a consensus now for buyers and sellers to reach a common ground. PTT E&P is using a $50 oil price forecast in 2017 for its investment decisions.

    Snap Jumps as its Bags First ‘Buy’ Rating



    Snap shares rose after securing its first 'buy' recommendation from a Wall Street analyst, giving the social media tech company a reprieve from the sell-off it has seen since its market debut.

    The $3.4 billion IPO initially received strong demand from investors, with the stock posting dramatic gains during the first two days after its official market debut. However, the stock steadily lost footing as investors concerns regarding the Snapchat owner's high valuation and lack of profitability induced doubts of analysts on Wall Street.

    Based on the median recommendations of analysts comprised of three categories: buy, sell and neutral, Snap is currently the worst-rated stock among listed U.S. firms with a market cap of at least $20 billion.

    But the stock was given a lift by Crespi, Hardt & Co. analyst James Cakmak, who gave the firm its first-ever “buy" rating and put the price target at $25. Its shares traded up 2.09 percent at $19.96 in midday trading.

    In a report, Cakmak said that Snap is perceived as a firm with the potential to speed up its rate of revenue growth by seven fold. It is also projected with a sharp margin trajectory, while its peers have most likely reached their peak already.
