    Westpac Leading Index Gains 0.1% In January



    The Australian economy inched slightly forward in January, the latest survey from Westpac Bank and the Melbourne Institute suggested on Wednesday, as its leading economic index added 0.1 percent on month. That follows the flat reading in December, and it continues the stretch of below-trend growth, Westpac said. "We still believe that an interest rate cut in March is the best policy to support domestic demand and maintain downward pressure on the Australian dollar and this outcome remains our forecast," Westpac chief economist Bill Evans said.

    Gold Retains Gains on Hopes fED Will Delay Interest Rate Hike



    Spot gold was little changed at $1,212.81 an ounce by 0030 GMT. The metal closed up 0.3 percent on Wednesday, after dropping to a six-week low of $1,197.56 earlier in the session. Fed policymakers expressed concern last month that raising rates too soon could pour cold water on the U.S. economic recovery, and fretted over the impact of dropping "patient" from the central bank's rate guidance. The minutes from the Fed's Jan. 27-28 policy-setting meeting, released on Wednesday, show officials grappling to square solid U.S. economic growth with the weakness in international markets, as well as worrying about falling inflation expectations in the United States. Global equity markets advanced on Wednesday while the dollar pulled back from earlier gains following the release of the Fed minutes. Gold had come under pressure in recent months from expectations the Fed will raise interest rates as early as June, potentially lifting the dollar and hurting non-interest-yielding assets like bullion. If interest rates are kept near record lows for longer, bullion's appeal could increase.

    Japan Manufacturing Sector Slows In February - Markit



    The manufacturing sector in Japan continued to expand in February, albeit at a slower pace, the latest survey from Markit Economics showed on Friday with a PMI score of 51.5. That was well shy of forecasts for a score of 52.5, and it was down from 52.2 in January. The February reading represents a seven-month low score, although it remains above the boom-or-bust score of 50 that separates expansion from contraction. Among the individual components, the manufacturing output index was steady at 52.7, suggesting that production growth remains solid, Markit said.

    BoJ Minutes: Moderate Pace For Economic Recovery



    The members of the Bank of Japan's monetary policy committee believe that the pace of the country's economic recovery remains moderate, minutes from the bank's policy meeting on January 20 and 21 revealed on Monday. They also noted that capital spending was on the upswing as corporate profits continued to grow. "Japan's economy has continued to recover moderately as a trend, and effects such as those of the decline in demand following the front-loaded increase prior to the consumption tax hike have been waning on the whole. Overseas economies -- mainly advanced economies --have been recovering, albeit with a lackluster performance still seen in part," the minutes said. The members did concede that they were likely to miss their desired inflation target of 2 percent following years of deflation - due mainly to tumbling energy prices. Citing lower crude oil prices, the BoJ downgraded its core inflation estimate for fiscal 2015 to 1 percent from 1.7 percent. But the central bank lifted the forecast for fiscal 2016 to 2.2 percent from 2.1 percent. "Inflation expectations appear to be rising on the whole from a somewhat longer-term perspective," the bank said. "The year-on-year rate of increase in the CPI is likely to slow for the time being, reflecting the decline in energy prices." At the meeting, the BoJ kept its monetary policy unchanged and lowered its near-term inflation forecast. The bank also extended its loan scheme by one year in order to encourage lending. The central bank also decided by an 8-1 vote to maintain its target of raising the monetary base at an annual pace of about JPY 80 trillion. The bank said major risks to the outlook are developments in the emerging and commodity-exporting economies, the prospects regarding the debt problem and the risk of low inflation rates being protracted in Europe, and the pace of recovery in the United States. The bank raised its fiscal 2015 growth outlook to 2.1 percent from 1.5 percent. For fiscal 2016, the bank projected 1.6 percent real growth instead of 1.2 percent. "Quantitative and qualitative monetary easing (QQE) has been exerting its intended effects, and the Bank will continue with the QQE, aiming to achieve the price stability target of 2 percent, as long as it is necessary for maintaining that target in a stable manner. It will examine both upside and downside risks to economic activity and prices, and make adjustments as appropriate," the bank said.

    Fx Vol Collapses: Rbc Capital



    The collapse of FX vol that is underway with Yellen and Greece behind us, according to RBC Capital Research. The ECB's Global Hazard Index, at 9.95, is down more than 3 vols from Friday's close and at its lowest level since early-November. With vol and spreads in other asset classes already low, this has caused our overall Risk Aversion Thermometer to fall to almost one standard deviation risk seeking (-7.3) and its lowest level since last May. This is a positive background for riskier and higher-yielding currencies
