    South Korea Has $7.91 Billion Current Account Surplus



    South Korea posted an unadjusted current account surplus of $7.91 billion in July, the Bank of Korea said on Thursday - remaining in the black for the 29th consecutive month. The headline figure is little changed from June's surplus of $7.92 billion. The goods account surplus widened to $6.86 billion, from $6.65 billion in the previous month. The services account deficit narrowed to $0.01 billion from $0.58 billion a month earlier as deficit on the use of intellectual property account improved, the bank said. The primary income account surplus narrowed to $1.49 billion from $2.23 billion in the previous month due to a substantial decrease in income on the equity account. The secondary income account recorded a deficit of $0.43 billion. The financial account recorded a net outflow of $5.92 billion, down from $9.84 billion in June. Direct investment recorded a net outflow of $1.01 billion down from $2.06 billion a month earlier, as residents' outward investment decreased. Portfolio investment recorded a net outflow of $1.74 billion, down from $4.22 billion in June, due primarily to a large net inflow of foreign investors' equity securities investment. Financial derivatives posted a net inflow of $0.50 billion. Other investment shifted to a net outflow of $0.34 billion, from a net inflow of $0.28 billion in the previous month due mostly to increased lending by domestic financial institutions. Reserve assets increased by $3.33 billion. Through the first seven months of 2014, the current account surplus is $47.1 billion.

    UK Consumer Confidence Index Rebounds In August



    An index measuring consumer confidence in the United Kingdom climbed back into positive territory in August with a score of +1, GfK said on Friday. That beat expectations for a score of -1 following the -2 reading in July. The August reading matched the nine-year high mark in June. "There is no guarantee how long this stable position will last - a rush of good or bad economic news could set off a marked rise or fall, but things could stay like this for a while," said Nick Moon, managing director of social research at GfK.

    Taiwan Aug Manufacturing PMI Rises At Fastest Rate Since 2011



    Taiwan's manufacturing activity grew at the fastest pace in more than three years in August, results of a survey by Markit Economics and HSBC Bank showed Monday. The HSBC Purchasing Managers' Index for the manufacturing sector rose to 56.1 in August from 55.8 in July. This marked the fastest rate of improvement in manufacturing activity since April 2011. A reading above 50 signals expansion in activity. New orders increased at the fastest pace since the start of 2011 in August. The increase in new work supported the sharp rise in manufacturing production, though the rate of increase was slightly slower than in the previous month. This marked the twelfth consecutive month of growth in production. Also, staffing levels improved for the fifteenth straight month in August. The rate of increase was little changed from the 39-month high recorded in July. Input costs inflation eased in August from July's peak. Meanwhile, output prices fell for the seventh consecutive month.

    New Zealand Building Value Gains 1.0% In Q2



    The value of all building in New Zealand added a seasonally adjusted 1.0 percent on quarter in the second quarter of 2014, Statistics New Zealand said on Wednesday. The unadjusted value of all building activity in Q2 was NZ$3.8 billion, including NZ$2.3 billion residential building work, and NZ$1.4 billion non-residential building work. The headline figure beat expectations for a flat reading on quarter following the downwardly revised 15.0 percent surge in the first quarter (originally 16.0 percent). Non-residential building activity volume climbed a seasonally adjusted 2.5 percent, while residential building activity was unchanged from last quarter. "The trend for all building activity has been generally rising for nearly three years, and is just 0.7 percent lower than the series high in the June 2005 quarter," said business indicators manager Neil Kelly. On a yearly basis, building activity grew most in Auckland and Canterbury regions this quarter. The non-residential buildings volume trend is now 19 percent higher than the most recent low point in the September 2013 quarter, the bureau said, and is just 1.3 percent lower than the series high eight years ago in the March 2006 quarter. Growth continues in the residential building volume trend; however, it is still 7.0 percent lower than the series high in the June 2004 quarter. The all buildings volume trend has been generally rising for 11 quarters, and is now just 0.7 percent lower than the series high in the June 2005 quarter.
