Commodities rally on positive announcements from Europe
“We have a statement of ambition but markets will now want to know how will we get there. The jury is still out. It will take several weeks before we have a clearer picture”. William De Vijlder, the global chief investment officer of Paris-based BNP Paribas Investment Partners, on European plans ‘‘Both stainless steel demand and the substitution between nickel pig iron and primary nickel suggest that there will be higher prices for nickel”. Jeremy Friesen, a commodity strategist at Societe Generale in Hong Kong Commodities—Rally on European plans • All the commodities except natural gas sharply up • EFSF size to be increased to 1 Trillion Euro • Banks agree on 50% haircut • Banks agreeing considered to be voluntary hence no default • Greece to get 100 billion Euro next year • European banks to get 106 Billion towards recapitalization to meet Tier one Capital Ratio of 9% • Europe Eyes IMF Channel for Aid as China Mulls Contribution • Euro surges past 1.42 mark against the US Dollar • Copper, lead and silver rally over 5% • US Personal consumption data tops the forecast • US Pending Home Sales data disappoints • Industrial production Japan declines more than expected Uncertainties regarding the European crisis were resolved to a certain extent yesterday on some positive announcements as stated above. Markets were euphoric as both commodities and equities staged violent rallies. Euro rallied above 1.42 against the US Dollar. Asian currencies are showing the similar pattern as they rise against the US Dollar on European optimism. In short-term we are likely to see further upside in risk assets as European announcements have coincided with somewhat better than expected data out of the US. However, it is not that European issues have been sorted out for good. Many nagging points remain: structural problems have not been addressed, The amount dedicated for banks recapitalization is probably not enough, even 9% Tier one Capital is being considered inadequate in the current scenario exact mechanism of EFSF enhancement is yet to be finalized, etc. For the time being, we look for higher prices in industrial commodities before markets start looking to China’s real estate issues, US unemployment, possibility of a recession in the US and Europe, etc. Asia Watch—Industrial production Japan declines more than expected Japan’s industrial output fell 4 percent in September from the previous month, the trade ministry said in a report today. This was the first decline since the March earthquake and tsunami, and more than the forecast of 2.1 percent in a survey by Bloomberg News, more than analysts expected, indicating that the recovery from the March earthquake may be stalling. Europe Watch—Europe Eyes IMF Channel for Aid as China Mulls Contribution European officials are studying the potential for an International Monetary Fund channel for money for their enlarged rescue fund, as China considers contributing to ending the area’s sovereign-debt crisis. The European Financial Stability Facility may explore setting up a special purpose vehicle with the IMF, Klaus Regling, the EFSF’s chief executive officer, said at a briefing in Beijing today. Separately, Chinese Vice Finance Minister Zhu Guangyao said that while an investment by his nation is “under discussion,” China needs more detail of what is planned.
