    Important Financial Indicators of the day Forecast Previous
    USD 15:30 (GMT) Core CPI m/m 0.2% 1.1%
    Currencies

    EUR/USD The euro’s 8.4 percent gain against the U.S. dollar in the past six months is posing a fresh threat to the European economy just as it shows signs of escaping the debt crisis, said Jean-Claude Juncker, who leads the group of euro-area finance ministers.
    The European currency dropped as much as 0.9 percent after Juncker’s comments, the biggest intraday decline since Jan. 3. The euro traded at $1.3306 at 5 p.m. New York time, down 0.6 percent. It touched an intraday high of $1.3404 on Jan. 14, the strongest since Feb. 29, 2012.

    USD/JPY The yen headed for its biggest two- day gain in eight months amid speculation the Bank of Japan (8301) will fail to impress investors with extra policy measures at its Jan. 21-22 meeting.
    The yen rose 0.7 percent to 88.16 per dollar as of 2:15
    p.m. in Tokyo, following a 0.8 percent jump yesterday. It would
    be the sharpest back-to-back gain since May 18. The Japanese
    currency reached 89.67 on Jan. 14, a level unseen since June
    2010. The euro slid 0.1 percent to $1.3289 after dropping 0.6
    percent yesterday. It touched $1.3404 on Jan. 14, the strongest
    since Feb. 29. The currency fell 0.9 percent to 117.14 yen.

    USD/CAD The Canadian dollar weakened the most in six months against the yen on speculation the central bank may limit policies to devalue the currency after Japan’s economy minister said the country faces economic risks.
    The Canadian dollar, called the loonie for the image of the aquatic bird on the C$1 coin, was little changed at 98.43 cents per U.S. dollar at 5:07 p.m. in Toronto, after declining the most since Jan. 4. One loonie buys $1.0160.

    Commodities

    Oil traded near the lowest level in almost a week in New York after U.S. crude stockpiles increased and the World Bank cut its economic growth forecasts.
    Crude for February delivery was at $93.51 a barrel, up 23 cents, in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange at 1:46 p.m. Singapore time. The contract declined 0.9 percent to $93.28 yesterday, the biggest drop since Dec. 21 and the lowest close since Jan. 9.
    Brent for February settlement, which expires today, was up
    37 cents at $110.67 a barrel on the London-based ICE Futures
    Europe exchange. The more active March contract rose 35 cents to
    $109.98. The front-month European benchmark contract was at a
    premium of $17.16 to WTI. It closed at $17.02 yesterday, the
    narrowest spread since Sept. 19.

    Gold advanced for a third day toward
    a two-week high as expectations that global policy makers will
    need to stimulate growth boosted demand for a store of value.
    Platinum fell from the most expensive in three months.
    Spot gold gained as much as 0.3 percent to $1,684.75 an ounce and traded at $1,682.45 at 12:48 p.m. in Singapore. The metal reached $1,685.25 yesterday, the costliest since Jan. 3, after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke said the previous day that while the U.S. economy is responding to monetary stimulus there is still “quite a ways to go.”

    Equities

    Asian stocks fell, with the regional
    benchmark index heading for its first loss in three days, amid
    signs markets are overbought. The Nikkei 225 Stock Average slid
    by the most in eight months.

    The MSCI Asia Pacific Index (MXAP) slid 0.8 percent to 131.61 as of 3:03 p.m. Tokyo time, with almost three stocks falling for each that rose. The gauge has rallied since November after reports showed China’s economy is recovering and Japanese shares gained on speculation Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will pursue more aggressive policies to stimulate the world’s third-largest economy

    European stocks were little changed as concern that debt-ceiling talks will harm the
    U.S. economy and a report showing weaker-than-forecast German growth
    offset Spain’s better-than-targeted sale of debt.

    The Stoxx Europe 600 Index (SXXP) lost less than 0.1 percent to 285.97 at the close of trading. The measure has still gained 2.3 percent since the start of the year after U.S. lawmakers agreed on a budget, avoiding tax increases and spending cuts that threatened to push the world’s biggest economy into a recession.

    U.S stocks advanced, rebounding from earlier losses in the Standard & Poor’s
    500 Index, as a rally in retail and transportation companies
    overshadowed concern about discussions on raising the debt ceiling.

    The S&P 500 rose 0.1 percent to 1,472.34 at 4 p.m. New York time, after falling as much as 0.5 percent earlier. The Dow Jones Industrial Average added 27.57 points, or 0.2 percent, to 13,534.89. The Dow Jones Transportation Average gained 0.7 percent to a record 5,639.64. About 5.8 billion shares changed hands on U.S. exchanges, or 5.7 percent.

    Important Financial Indicators of the day Forecast Previous
    EUR 09:00 (GMT) EuroGroup Meeting text text

    Currencies

    AUD/JPY The Australian dollar declined
    versus the yen before an inflation report this week that may
    prompt further interest-rate cuts, damping demand for the
    nation’s assets.
    Australia’s dollar declined 0.4 percent to 94.28 yen as of
    1:21 p.m. in Sydney, and traded little changed at $1.0516 after

    Zealand’s currency, known as the kiwi, weakened 0.8 percent to
    74.84 yen. It declined 0.2 percent to 83.47 cents, after
    touching 83.34, the lowest since Jan. 7.

    USD/JPY The yen rallied from its weakest
    level in 2 1/2 years as Asian stock declines spurred demand for
    safety and a decrease in bearish bets supported the currency.
    The yen rose 0.4 percent to 89.75 per dollar as of 11:52 a.m. in Tokyo after earlier touching 90.25, the weakest since June 2010. Japan’s currency gained 0.3 percent to 119.59 per euro, after sliding 0.8 percent last week. The dollar was little changed at $1.3324 per euro from its close on Jan. 18, when it advanced 0.4 percent.

    GBP/USD The pound had its steepest weekly
    drop against the dollar since June on concern the U.K. economy
    is struggling to expand and as growing investor confidence in
    the euro-area damps demand for the currency as a haven.

    The pound fell 1.7 percent to $1.5861 in the week to 5:46
    p.m. London time yesterday, after sliding to $1.5854, the lowest
    level since Nov. 16. The U.K. currency lost 1.5 percent to 83.83
    pence per euro after depreciating to 83.95 pence, the weakest
    since March 28.

    USD/CAD The Canadian dollar fell the most in a month against its U.S. counterpart as selling pressure emerged after signs of economic growth from the U.S. and China failed to drive the currency above a key technical level.
    The loonie fell 0.7 percent to 99.17 cents per U.S. dollar
    this week in Toronto, the largest decline since the five days
    ended Dec. 21. One loonie buys $1.0084.

    Commodities

    Oil dropped from the highest price
    in four months in New York before U.S. lawmakers vote on budget
    measures and European finance ministers meet to discuss the debt
    crisis that threatens the region’s economy.
    WTI for February delivery, which expires tomorrow, slid as
    much as 36 cents to $95.20 a barrel in electronic trading on the

    Sydney time. The more-active March future declined 27 cents to

The European benchmark contract was at a premium of $15.89 to WTI futures for the same month. The gap was $15.16 on Jan. 17, the narrowest since July 24

    Gold advanced on expectations for
    more stimulus while U.S. lawmakers wrangle over the country’s
    debt limit. Silver traded near the highest level in a month and
    was set for the longest rally in a year
    Gold rallied for a 12th year in 2012 on global stimulus
    measures. The Bank of Japan starts a two-day policy meeting
    today, while European finance ministers meet in Brussels for the
    first time this year. In the U.S., House Republicans will use a
    planned Jan. 23 vote on a three-month debt-ceiling increase to
    try to force Senate Democrats to adopt a budget to spell out
    their spending plan.

    Equities

    Asian stocks fell amid
    speculation shares may have risen too far, too fast. Japanese
    shares led the retreat as the yen climbed against the dollar
    after hitting its lowest level in 2 1/2 years.

    The MSCI Asia Pacific Index slid 0.1 percent to 132.62 as
    of 11:35 a.m. in Tokyo, with about four stocks falling for every
    three that rose. The gauge rallied 11 percent from Nov. 14
    through Jan. 18 as Japanese shares jumped on optimism Prime
    Minister Shinzo Abe will pursue more aggressive stimulus
    policies to boost the economy.

    European stocks were little changed
    this week as better-than-expected economic data from China and
    the U.S. offset concern that debt-ceiling talks will weigh on
    recovering growth in the world’s biggest economy.

    The Stoxx 600 Europe Index fell less than 0.1 percent to 287.03 this week. The measure climbed to its highest level since February 2011 last week amid speculation that U.S. companies’ earnings would exceed analysts’ estimates.

    U.S stocks rose for a third week,
    driving benchmark indexes to five-year highs, as earnings from
    companies including General Electric Co. and Goldman Sachs Group
    Inc. beat estimates and debt-limit talks progressed.

    The S&P 500 (SPX) rose 1 percent to 1,485.98, extending its 2013 advance to 4.2 percent. The Dow Jones Industrial Average added 161.27 points, or 1.2 percent, to 13,649.70. Both measures closed at their highest levels since December 2007.
