By Clare Jim and Andrew Galbraith HONG KONG/SHANGHAI (Reuters) -China Evergrande Group has secured an extension on a defaulted bond, financial provider REDD reported on Thursday, offering rare respite to the developer a day after a deal to sell a $2.6 billion stake in its property services unit failed. Evergrande has won a more than three month extension to the maturity of a $260 million bond, issued by joint venture Jumbo Fortune Enterprises and guaranteed by Evergrande, beyond Oct. 3 after agreeing to provide extra collateral, REDD reported, citing holders of the bond. A source familiar with the matter told Reuters Evergrande Chairman Hui Ka Yan has agreed to pump in personal wealth into a Chinese residential project tied to the bond to ensure it gets completed, paving the way for bondholders to get their dues. The bondholders agreed to the proposal to avoid a messy collapse of the developer or a drawn-out legal battle, the source added. Evergrande did not respond to Reuters requests for comment. News of the extension came after Evergrande said on Wednesday it had scrapped a deal to sell a 50.1% stake in Evergrande Property Services Group Ltd to Hopson Development Holdings Ltd as the smaller rival had not met the "prerequisite to make a general offer". Both sides traded blame for the deal failure, with Hopson saying it does not accept "there is any substance whatsoever" to Evergrande's termination of the sales agreement, and it is exploring options to protect its legitimate interests. The deal is the developer's second to collapse amid its scramble to raise cash in recent weeks. Two sources told Reuters last week the $1.7 billion sale of its Hong Kong headquarters had failed amid buyer worries over Evergrande's financial situation. The setback also comes just ahead of the expiry of a 30-day grace period for Evergrande to pay $83.5 million in coupon payments for an offshore bond, at which time China's most indebted developer would be considered in default. Evergrande, in an exchange filing on Wednesday, said the grace periods for the payment of the interest on its U.S. dollar-denominated bonds that had become due in September and October had not expired. It did not elaborate. "The scrapped transaction has made it even more unlikely for it (Evergrande) to pull a rabbit out of a hat at the last minute," said a lawyer representing some creditors, requesting anonymity as he was not authorised to speak to the media. "Given where things are with the missed payments and the grace period running out soon, people are bracing for a hard default. We'll see how the company addresses this in its negotiations with creditors." REASSURANCES Trading in the Hong Kong-listed shares of China Evergrande, its property services unit and Hopson all resumed on Thursday after a more than two-week suspension. Evergrande lost 12% and its property services unit dropped 6.5%, while its electric vehicle arm plunged as much as 10.6%. Shares of Hopson rose 5%. Mainland China's CSI 300 real estate index gained nearly 4%. Evergrande was once China's top-selling developer but is now reeling under more than $300 billion of debt, prompting government officials to come out in recent days to say the firm's problems will not spin out of control and trigger a broader financial crisis. Ratings agency Fitch said China's attempts to preserve strengthened risk controls over the property sector without magnifying a growth slowdown illustrate the difficult trade-offs its policymakers are facing. If policy easing is too cautious, stress could spread to other parts of the economy and the financial system, while a substantial loosening of credit conditions could raise system leverage and set back efforts to control financial risks, it added. Since the government started clamping down on corporate debt in 2017, many real estate developers have turned to off-balance-sheet vehicles to borrow money and skirt regulatory scrutiny, analysts and lawyers said. Statements from other property developers on Thursday exacerbated investor concerns of contagion. Chinese Estates Holdings Ltd said it would book a loss of $29 million in its current fiscal year from the sale of bonds issued by property developer Kaisa Group Holdings Ltd. And Modern Land (China) Co Ltd said it had ceased seeking consent from investors to extend the maturity date of a dollar bond due on Oct. 25. It said it plans to engage a financial adviser to come up with a solution to its liquidity issues. The company's Hong Kong-listed shares were suspended from trading on Thursday, while its bonds slumped. Its 11.95% March 2024 bond traded down nearly 20% at below 21 cents, according to data provider Duration Finance. Kaisa saw its 11.65% June 2026 bond fall more than 8.5% to 28.8 cents. Modern Land's decision weighed on investors' mood, said Clarence Tam, fixed income portfolio manager at Avenue Asset Management in Hong Kong. "The market is worried all single-B companies will choose not to pay," he said. Investor concerns were not confined to offshore markets. A Sept. 2023 bond from developer Aoyuan Group Co was the biggest loser of the day among corporate bonds on the Shanghai Stock Exchange, according to exchange data, falling 10% to trade at 88.65 yuan.

IU Watchlist: Main Watches: $BBIG Morning shove and looking for fails - I'd love to see $5.50 + push then sit back $FB 945-10AM + trend join $MRNA we still could be heading for a nice flush out - we had a big flush this AM not quite where I wanted but definitely got that reversal. Personally I missed it. All good. Got a small piece of the trader later on. Failed Follow Through: $CEI in an ideal world $2-2.20 + blow off and fade off however I think this did EXACTLY what we talked about on the last webinar re: trapping intraday shorts and squeezing them out into the close. I think huge size soaked yesterday and today and shoved it today until momentum caught before unwinding their positions into cover this afternoon. If that was the case any shove tomorrow will be met with pressure (if a weak open and shove). Cautious it's Friday but definitely think they move on with this trade by the weekend. Too much risk for long side money. $GROM great one today volume is a little silly - higher better and fade back sub $4 would be ideal. Continuation: $F watch dips for $15 break out $AEHR absolutely insane swing trade so far downsized a lot today with hopes to buy back lower but that didn't happen. Nice highs close. Hope everyone did well. $BMRA still toying around tough trade to trade perfectly looks great then bid falls out - twice. Nice swing though be smart around core until firms up over $7 (if it does). $VYGR 945-10AM + trend join. $RCAT not going away yet. Watching for PR / action to scale in until then monitoring as long as it holds base if it gets heavy - cautious.

Failed Follow Through: $DATS higher better and I think each rebound will be met with pressure - the day it holds and bases over VWAP don't fight it's had some good volume so would love to see some relief rallies to get longs believing in it again before pressure comes back on. $CEI thinking gap up $1.20s then flush to $1.10s trap and maybe squeeze out $1.30-1.40 + if we're lucky before it settles $1.20s $LMFA morning shove $4.70 + is ideal and then fade off towards $4-4.20s is ideal $GROM ideally $5-5.20 blow off and then back to where it came from. There is no reason to find top wait for it to prove. $SBET another like MARPS etc just your regular Twitter push - let it do it's thing and then look to trade it once it gets heavy. Continuation: $BMRA so far so good - same plan spelled out. $5.80s firmed up today I re added everything I sold yesterday and letting it work until it doesn't I'd love to see $7.50-8 + blow off but will sell into any parabolic move and adjust risk around core. $CPRX dips for break out is ideal. $DOGZ same as prior scans. $VYGR little rip AHs and dip AHs before consolidation I think we'll have a trade tomorrow I have it under continuation but could go either way. I am thinking a weak open which is why I put it in continuation looking for it to dip $3.60-3.70base and possible push on $4-4.50+ if it gaps $4-4.20 + looking for a fade 945-10AM+

Tuesday, October 5, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow 130.00 0.38% 34,000 S&P 500 12.00 0.27% 4,303 Nasdaq 43.50 0.30% 14,506 U.S, futures are trying to bounce after another brutal Monday on Wall Street that saw broad based weakness with the Nasdaq Composite hitting its lowest levels since late June, falling for the 6th time in the last 7-trading sessions and as the S&P 500 dropped over 1.2%, now more than 5% off its all-time highs, led by another decline in tech stocks. Bespoke noted that the NY FANG+ index closed below its 200-DMA today for the first time in 378 trading days and is now down more than 9% from its Sept. 7 record close. Many of the same concerns remain Tuesday, with a global energy crunch lifting oil prices to the highest in seven years, inflation momentum accelerating amid supply chain disruptions and soaring input costs, and the specter of a U.S. default as lawmakers continue to haggle over the extension of the country’s $28.4 trillion debt ceiling. The U.S. 10-Year Treasury yield ended a three-day losing streak on Monday as growth stocks plunged and concerns about a potential U.S. government debt default offered another reason for caution. The Dow, &P 500, and Nasdaq Composite ended the day down around 4%-7% from their recent closing highs. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index fell -622 points to 27,822, the Shanghai Index remained closed for Golden Week holiday, and the Hang Seng Index gained 57 points to settle at 24,104. In Europe, the German DAX is up around60-points to 15,100, while the FTSE 100 gains around 50-points to 7,050.

portmoreute: I think there is a way to do that on TD ameritrades platform, it is an advanced order based upon the stock that would sell the option at market once the underlying condition (stock price) is met, otherwise you can try to calculate it based upon the delta (although not ideal) - hope that helps

By Tom Westbrook and Anushka Trivedi SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Asian stocks struggled to shake off contagion fears on Tuesday and selling pressure persisted amid concern that troubles at indebted developer China Evergrande could ripple across the world economy, markets and financial system. Hong Kong's Hang Seng hit a fresh 11-month low and was down 0.3% by midsession, with a early gains in banks and property stocks paring a little. Japan's Nikkei returned from a market holiday with a drop of almost 2%. (T) Currency, commodity and bond markets steadied, but overall demand for riskier assets remained low especially as the Federal Reserve is expected to step closer to tapering on Wednesday. European futures rose 0.5% in the Asia session. FTSE futures advanced 0.7% and S&P 500 futures climbed 0.6% a day after selling hit banks on both sides of the Atlantic and tipped the S&P 500 to its steepest fall in two months. "For markets to bounce we need to see concrete actions from the authorities to stem any wide spread contagion," said Dave Wang, a portfolio manager at Nuvest Capital in Singapore. Though China is on holiday, and mainland markets closed, there was little evidence of that yet, with no mention of Evergrande's troubles in major Chinese state media. Evergrande, struggling for cash, owes $305 billion and investors are on edge at the risk a messy failure reverberates through China's property sector and everything exposed to it - primarily banks and then the broader economy. China's yuan steadied in offshore trade to recoup some of the losses that sent it to a three-week low on Monday. Evergrande shares fell 4% as focus there shifts to Thursday when the company is due to make bond interest payments. Australia's stock market was also barely better than flat as iron ore miners BHP and Rio Tinto (NYSE:RIO) scraped from nine-month troughs plumbed on Monday. Copper hovered near a one-month low on demand fears. [MET/L] "There is market caution," said George Boubouras, head of research, at K2 Asset Management in Melbourne. "However the profit and earnings cycle is far from a bear market," he said. "Evergrande is a sentiment issue, no doubt. But no Lehman event ... it will be addressed, bailed out or restructured if it becomes a notable mainland China problem." FED WATCH The next few days present yet more tests, with the Federal Reserve concluding a two-day meeting on Wednesday and likely to offer some guidance on the tapering outlook and with Evergrande due to meet its bond interest payments on Thursday. In the currency market, traders took solace from the relative calm in Hong Kong after Monday's plunge. The euro traded at $1.1730, after having touched a near-one-month low of $1.1700 while the safe-haven yen slipped to 109.57 yen to the dollar. The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield crept up to 1.3277%, with moves capped as markets have an eye to the Fed. Investors are looking for the tapering timeline on its bond purchases as well as its board members' long-term rates and economic projections. "I think the Fed will calm things down and I guess defer their tapering decision till November, said Jarrod Kerr, chief economist at Kiwibank. This week will also see policy decisions from many other central banks spanning Brazil, Britain, Hungary, Indonesia, Japan, Norway, the Philippines, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan and Turkey. Oil prices also rebounded a tad in Asia after falling the previous day. U.S. crude futures traded at $70.98 per barrel. [O/R] Wobbling cryptocurrencies also found a floor, with bitcoin bouncing from a 1 1/2-month low of $40,193 to trade just shy of $43,000.

Friday, September 10, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow 167.00 0.48% 34,920 S&P 500 17.25 0.38% 4,500 Nasdaq 58.50 0.37% 15,608 U.S. futures are looking sharply higher, with the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average looking to snap their respective 4-day losing streaks, the longest for the S&P since the middle of June. There hasn’t been much news for the recent sputtering of stocks on this holiday shortened week, though it is noteworthy that major averages remain roughly 1% off all-time highs in what has been a momentous run the last few months on dovish Fed policy and strong corporate earnings. Wall Street got a sentiment boost overnight after U.S. President Joe Biden and China President Xi Jinping held a surprise 90-minute phone call late Thursday, the first between the two world leaders in seven months. Asia shares got a boost from news of the talks, with the positive sentiment flowing through into a European session that was still navigating yesterday’s tapering decision from the ECB and news showing that the ongoing spread of Delta variant coronavirus infections lead to the slowest monthly economic growth in the UK since the January lockdowns. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index jumped 373 points (1.25%) to 30,331, the Shanghai Index rose 10 points to 3,703 and the Hang Seng Index surged 489 points (1.91%) to 26,205. The German DAX gains 50 points to 15,675, while the FTSE 100 rises 25 points to 7,050.

If we can re-claim above this level of $195 we can see continued strength for a potential run to $200. Watch for the break and hold above $195 for a swing with one week out for a PT of $200.

By Marc Jones LONDON (Reuters) - World shares tapped the brakes on Thursday as China troubles struck again, while Europe's bond markets steadied after confident-sounding ECB policymakers had caused their sharpest selloff in six months. The Federal Reserve's annual Jackson Hole policy symposium on Friday made investors avoid major moves but there was plenty, including European Central Bank meeting minutes and U.S. GDP data and weekly unemployment claims, to keep the wait interesting. Asia had also seen its first post-COVID outbreak interest rate rise in South Korea overnight. Chinese markets had fallen after the country's most indebted property developer Evergrande warned of a major profit slump, Japan suspended Moderna (NASDAQ:MRNA)'s COVID vaccine, while German data showed consumers' mood there darkening again. The pan-European STOXX 600 index was down 0.4% ahead of the Wall Street opening bell. Mining, travel and leisure and retail stocks were among the biggest losers. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq were expected later to tick down too after their 51st record high of the year. (N) That mild bout of risk aversion helped steady safe-haven government bonds after Wednesday's wobbles, although yields - which move inverse to a bond's price - were starting to creep up again. [GVD/EUR] ECB minutes showed policymakers had needed to redraft the wording of this month's new forward guidance twice to appease the bank's more hawkish members, and even then Germany and Belgium had still not been on board. "The most interesting thing we got was the euro sovereign bond market coming alive yesterday," Saxo Bank's head of FX strategy John Hardy said, pointing to the sharp spike in yields that had also lifted the euro. [/FRX] Hardy said the market seemed very complacent about Jackson Hole, so there was room for a surprise. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan fell 0.65% overnight. Chinese blue chips lost 2% rattled by Evergrande's profit warning, which had sent its shares down 7% and its electric vehicle unit tumbling nearly 20%. (0708.HK) Hong Kong had also shed 1% as a tech rebound ran out of steam and the Hang Seng Tech Index, where many of the big Chinese tech firms are listed, fell 1.9%. [.SS] Elsewhere, the Australian benchmark lost 0.5% as the country's new daily coronavirus cases topped 1,000 for the first time. Japan's Nikkei ended little changed after the government kept its economic forecasts broadly intact. "The easiest piece to write in global economics right now is the COVID tortoises and hares," said Societe Generale (OTC:SCGLY)'s Kit Juckes. "The zero COVID countries had a cracking start but now it is the others that are leading," he said, pointing to how restaurant and airline bookings in Europe had been steadily improving whereas places like Australia were tough. " onerror="this.style.display='none'" class="msg-img" /> POLICY CHANGES The global inflationary pulse was also in the headlines as the South Korean central bank lifted its base rate off a record low, the first major economy in Asia to do so. Governor Lee Ju-yeol suggested the bank could further tighten policy as data showed Asia's fourth-largest economy was overheating. Central banks around the world are laying the groundwork for a transition away from crisis-era stimulus as what began as emergency support now overheats many economies. Investors and policymakers are particularly focused on what Fed Chair Jeremy Powell signals at Jackson Hole on Friday. "The Jackson Hole meeting could be the trigger for the Fed to consider tapering its bond purchases, though it is unlikely," Sébastien Galy, senior macro strategist at Nordea Asset Management said. "The Delta variant is spreading and the overshoot in inflation has dampened consumer sentiment – a process that could last another month or so." Treasury yields had inched down in Asia but were rising again as U.S. trading began. The yield on benchmark 10-year Treasuries was last 1.36% compared with 1.33% in late Asian trading. The dollar, which is up nearly 4% since late May, was edging up again too, 0.1% higher at 1.1757 per euro and buying 110.16 Japanese yen. [/FRX] In commodity markets, oil prices fell after three days of gains, with Brent crude down 0.9% at $71.56 per barrel [O/R] and U.S. crude dipped 1.2% to $67.5 a barrel. Gold and iron dipped 0.3% and 0.8% respectively in metals markets. [GOL/][MET/L]

By Karin Strohecker LONDON (Reuters) - Stocks and bond yields dropped and the dollar hit a nine-month peak on Thursday as fears of slowing global growth into year-end were compounded by the prospect of the Federal Reserve cutting back its supportive bond purchase programme at the same time. Europe's pan-regional STOXX 600 index suffered its biggest daily decline in a month. Its near-2% slide dragged the global stocks benchmark to a three week low. Emerging market stocks sank to their lowest this year. U.S. futures suggested more pain ahead on Wall Street and commodities were under pressure with oil down for a sixth straight session and at three-month lows. Growth bellwether copper hit its lowest in more than four months. [O/R][MET/L] The latest selloff comes after minutes from the Federal Reserve's July meeting published on Wednesday showed officials expected they could ease stimulus this year, even though there was division over the labour market recovery and the level of risk posed by rising coronavirus cases. Fed policymakers were far from united in their view. But the prospect of stimulus being reduced when the rapid spread of the Delta variant, China's regulation crackdown and supply chain issues were already dampening the economic recovery spooked markets. "It is just a sea of red and top of the agenda is, what the Fed is going to do," said Neil MacKinnon, global macro strategist at VTB Capital in London. "The big picture story is: Could the Fed be making a policy error here? It wants to taper, we've seen that message in the FOMC minutes, but could the Fed be tapering into a cyclical economic slowdown in the third and fourth quarters? There's a risk of that." The focus now shifts to the Fed's annual research conference in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, next week where central bankers from around the globe gather and Fed chair Jerome Powell is due to give a speech which will be scoured for clues on the central bank's next steps. SAFE HAVENS SHINE Meanwhile the dash to safe haven assets helped U.S. Treasury yields cling to recent lows, with benchmark 10-year yields at 1.24%. Euro zone government bond yields also fell with German 10-year Bund yields, the benchmark for the bloc, falling a basis point to -0.49%, within touching distance of a six-month low hit earlier this month. [US/] [GVD/EUR] Japan's Nikkei share average fell 1.1% to its lowest since early January, pulled down by Toyota Motor (NYSE:TM) whose shares tumbled on news that it will cut its output by 40% next month due to a chip shortage. Reverberations from Beijing's regulations continued to be felt with U.S.-listed shares of Chinese tech companies down premarket after China's Tencent Holdings (OTC:TCEHY) warned that the internet industry should brace for more regulations. The slump in Asian stocks to their lowest level this year, also rattled policymakers. Taiwan's Finance Ministry has called state-owned banks to suggest they buy an "appropriate" amount of stocks, Reuters reported, citing sources familiar with the matter. "You can't find a bull out there," said Kay Van-Petersen, a global macro strategist at Saxo Capital Markets in Singapore. Frayed nerves supported the dollar, which was up 0.1% to $1.16975 per euro after touching its highest since November 2020. The dollar index was up 0.1% after earlier trading at its highest since November 2020. [FRX/] Norway's crown extended falls against the dollar to 1.3% after the central bank kept its key policy rate on hold at a record low of 0.0% but said it would stick to its plan to raise rates next month as the economy rebounds. The CBOE Volatility index, also known as Wall Street's fear gauge, was up 2 points at its highest level in about a month and the S&P 500 index fell 1% to a two-week low. (N) Oil prices fell for a sixth day in their longest losing streak since February 2020, with Brent crude dropping nearly $2 a barrel to trade at $66.27 and U.S. crude slipping $2 to trade at $63.44.

By Alun John and Tom Westbrook HONG KONG/SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Asian stocks slumped to their lowest levels this year and the dollar hit 10-month highs on Thursday as a double-whammy of worries about global growth and an end to central bank support drove nervous investors toward safety. Commodities were also sold with oil down for a sixth straight session and at three-month lows, while growth bellwether copper fell to a two-month trough. [O/R][MET/L] MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan dropped 1.5% to its lowest level since December. S&P 500 futures fell 0.1% and Euro STOXX 50 futures were off 0.63% by midway through the Asia day. "You can't find a bull out there," said Kay Van-Petersen, a global macro strategist at Saxo Capital Markets in Singapore. He said "an accumulation of things," from the spread of the Delta virus variant to a tech crackdown in China and the impression from Federal Reserve minutes that a slowdown in asset purchases looms was enough to sink fragile sentiment in Asia. The dollar rose 0.3% to $1.1665 per euro, hitting its highest since November 2020 along with the dollar index as the greenback made 2021 peaks on the Australian and New Zealand dollars. [FRX/] Selling pressure in stock markets extended from Chinese tech shares to semiconductors and miners. The Hang Seng tech index fell 1.8% to its lowest level since its launch last year. The broader Hang Seng dropped 1.6%. (HK) Alibaba (NYSE:BABA)'s Hong Kong shares fell to a record low. Chip giant TSMC fell 2% and had Taiwan's benchmark on course for its worst session since May, while tumbling iron ore prices pushed shares in global miners BHP and Rio Tinto (NYSE:RIO) to their lowest in months. The two miners look set for their worst weekly drops since the height of pandemic panic in markets last year, even after BHP reported its best profit in almost a decade on Tuesday. "The spreading Delta variant is pushing down economic growth," said Ayako Sera, market strategist at Sumitomo Mitsui (NYSE:SMFG) Trust Bank. "But on the other hand, in the grand scheme of things, the Federal Reserve and some other central banks are starting to remove stimulus they began to deal with the pandemic ... so the balance is tilting in the direction of risk-aversion." The CBOE Volatility index, also known as Wall Street's fear gauge, jumped 3.66 points to its highest level in about a month overnight and the S&P 500 index fell 1% to a two-week low. (N) Minutes from the Fed's July meeting published on Wednesday showed officials expect they could ease stimulus this year, though there was division over recovery in the labour market and the level of risk posed by new rises in cases. "The minutes show a Fed that is pretty split on most things, but recognises that we are getting much closer to the point of tapering," wrote ING analysts in a note. Focus now shifts to the Fed's annual research conference in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, next week for any read about the central bank's next steps. U.S. Treasury yields held near recent lows in Asia. Benchmark 10-year notes were last at 1.2650% with growth wobbles driving demand for bonds. [US/] Oil extended losses into a sixth day on Thursday, falling to three-month lows. ANZ analysts said rising U.S. inventories had fuelled fears of weaker demand amid a spike in COVID-19 cases worldwide. [O/R] Brent crude was last down 1% at $67.54 a barrel, U.S. crude lost 1.2% to trade at $64.42 a barrel. The stronger dollar also dragged on gold, with the spot price dropping 0.55% to $1778.87.

By Kevin Buckland TOKYO (Reuters) - The dollar climbed against major peers on Monday, reaching a four-month high versus the euro, as traders positioned for an earlier tapering of Federal Reserve stimulus. The greenback strengthened as far as $1.1742 to the single currency, extending a 0.6% pop from Friday, when a strong U.S. jobs report stoked bets that a reduction in asset purchases could start this year and higher interest rates could follow as soon as 2022. The dollar index, which tracks the U.S. currency against six rivals, rose to a two-week top 92.915. The dollar also hit an almost two-week high of 110.37 yen. "U.S. payrolls were a game-changer," Chris Weston, head of research at brokerage Pepperstone in Melbourne, wrote in a client note. The dollar index is eyeing a close above 93, while the currency could head for $1.1704 per euro, Weston wrote, adding that it could climb further versus the yen too should U.S. yields continue to tick higher. The benchmark 10-year Treasury yield jumped 8 basis points on Friday to a two-week high of 1.3053%. There was no trading in Tokyo on Monday with Japan shut for a national holiday. Singapore markets were also closed. Friday's non-farm payroll report showed jobs increased by 943,000 in July compared with the 870,000 forecast by economists in a Reuters poll. Numbers for May and June were also revised up. The Fed has made the labor market recovery a condition of tighter monetary policy, and most officials back the view that a jump in inflation will prove transitory, though there is debate over how prolonged it could be. Traders will be keenly watching a U.S. consumer price report on Wednesday. Last week, Fed Vice Chair Richard Clarida suggested that conditions for hiking interest rates might be met as soon as late 2022. The dollar rallied against its Australian and New Zealand counterparts on Monday, jumping 0.3% to as high as $0.7330 per Aussie and up 0.4% to $0.6980 per kiwi.

By Carolyn Cohn LONDON (Reuters) - The dollar hit eight-day highs on Thursday after hawkish remarks from a senior U.S. Federal Reserve official, while European stocks hit record highs on strong company earnings. U.S. S&P 500 e-mini futures were up 0.24%, indicating a stronger open on Wall Street, after the S&P receded from a record high on Wednesday. Many stock markets around the world have been on a storming run in the past year, boosted by billions of dollars in monetary and fiscal stimulus. Investors are focused on whether some of that stimulus could be rolled back. U.S. Federal Reserve Vice Chair Richard Clarida, a major architect of the Fed's new policy strategy, said on Wednesday he felt the conditions for raising interest rates could be met by the end of 2022, raising expectations the central bank could scale back its bond-buying programme soon. "It's a question not of if the Fed taper but how fast the Fed taper," said Giles Coghlan, chief currency analyst at HYCM, adding he expected tapering of the asset purchase programme to start in August or September. "Clarida has definitely taken a shift." Clarida's remarks supported the dollar and U.S. yields. The dollar was steady at 92.200 against an index of currencies after hitting an eight-day high of 92.352. It was flat against the yen at 109.46, while the euro was also little changed at $1.1845. The benchmark 10-year Treasury yield was last at 1.170%, having on Wednesday touched 1.127% - its lowest level since February. European stocks hit record highs, up 0.16%, on strong earnings from Danish diabetes drug maker Novo Nordisk (NYSE:NVO) and German industrial firm Siemens. German 10-year bond yields hit their lowest since January and were down 3 basis points at -0.518%, below the European Central Bank's -0.50% policy rate. [GVD/EUR] UK stocks fell 0.22% and the pound rose 0.25% against the dollar after the Bank of England kept the size of its bond-buying programme unchanged and held its benchmark interest rate at a historic low of 0.1%. "The MPC (Monetary Policy Committee) has chosen to keep the wheels spinning and will wait longer to start putting the brakes on," said Hinesh Patel, portfolio manager at Quilter Investors. The MSCI world shares index was steady at 729.83, versus a record peak of 731.88 hit on Wednesday. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was down 0.29%. The Asian regional benchmark has recovered most of the ground lost a week ago, when a series of Chinese regulatory crackdowns on sectors from property to education squeezed Chinese stocks and overshadowed the region as a whole. The Chinese blue chip index was down 0.61%, weighed primarily by investors dumping online gaming companies, fertilizer producers and e-cigarette makers fearing criticism of these industries in state media could portend more government crackdowns. Australian shares hit a record closing high, led by banking stocks. Japan's Nikkei climbed 0.52%. Oil prices rose on rising Middle East tensions, though fresh movement restrictions imposed by countries to counter a surge in COVID-19 cases threatened the demand recovery. [O/R] U.S. crude gained 0.28% to $68.41 a barrel while Brent crude rose 0.28% to $70.57 per barrel. Gold edged up 0.1% to $1,813.40 an ounce. [GOL/] Ether, the world's second-largest cryptocurrency, dropped 3.8% having gained 8.7% a day earlier ahead of a technical adjustment to its underlying ethereum blockchain, which should happen later on Thursday.

Thursday, August 5, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow 55.00 0.16% 34,745 S&P 500 9.25 0.22% 4,404 Nasdaq 33.50 0.22% 15,107 U.S. futures are looking up modestly, rising roughly about 0.2% across the board into one of the heaviest days of corporate earnings of the season, as major averages continue to hold not far off record highs. The S&P 500 index has held the pivotal 4,400 level for over a week now, as overall major averages have moved sideways for two or three weeks now, bolstered by rising on better economic data, earnings results, and an accommodative Fed, which has offset rising Delta variant concerns and fears of further global restrictions to contain the rise in cases and tighter government restrictions in China. Oil prices edge higher after sliding sharply the last 3-days on demand concerns. Bitcoin prices are down about 4% holding just above the $38,000 level while Ethereum slips nearly 4% to 2,600 in the crypto sector. Ahead of tomorrow’s nonfarm payrolls report, investors will get two more labor market data points with the Challenger jobs report at 7:30 and the weekly jobless claims. Euro Stoxx 50 rises 0.5% around best levels for the week. Wednesday’s after-hours big-name earnings were disappointing for the most part, which could weigh on sentiment. Major averages ended the session mixed on Wednesday, following conflicting signals on the economy that showed a hot services sector, but a labor market that continues to struggle to find workers. The Institute for Supply Management survey on Wednesday jumped to a record high of 64.1 in July, but the ADP Employment Report showed private payrolls only rose by 330,000 last month, well shy of the 695,000 estimate ahead of tomorrow’s payrolls. The Dow Jones saw the biggest fall, dragged lower by a decline of more than 6% in Amgen in the wake of its quarterly results, accounting for about 103 points to the downside while energy was the weakest sector on the day, suffering its biggest daily percentage drop since July 19. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index gained 144 points to 27,728, the Shanghai Index dipped -10 points to 3,466 and the Hang Seng Index declined -221 points (0.84%) to settle at 26,204. In Europe, markets are little changed as the German DAX is up a few points at the 15,700 level, while the FTSE 100 is down a couple of points at 7.120.

By Alun John HONG KONG (Reuters) - Asian shares mostly held onto this week's gains on Thursday, despite hawkish remarks from a senior official at the U.S. Federal Reserve that boosted the dollar while weighing on risk appetite. Uncertainty about Chinese policy is also making investors hesistant. Futures pointed to similar caution in European equity markets. The pan-region Euro Stoxx 50 futures edged up 0.08% and FTSE futures inched 0.02% higher. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was down 0.16%, with small declines in Hong Kong, down 0.11%, and Korea, down 0.16%, balanced by a 0.24% gain in Australian shares which are heading towards a record close. Japan's Nikkei climbed 0.45%. This week the MSCI Asian regional benchmark has recovered most of the ground lost a week earlier, when a series of Chinese regulatory crackdowns on sectors from property to education squeezed Chinese stocks and overshadowed the region as a whole. Chinese equities have been calmer this week overall. The Chinese blue chip index was last down 0.2%, weighed primarily by investors dumping online gaming companies, fertilizer producers and e-cigarette makers fearing criticism of these industries in state media could portend more government crackdowns. "In the short term, the further rebound may continue but uncertainties over policy control will drive long-term investors away from Chinese technology names," said Edison Pun, senior market analyst at Saxo Markets. U.S. stock futures - the S&P 500 e-minis - rose 0.18% in Asian trading. U.S. stocks closed mostly lower on Wednesday, with the S&P 500 receding 0.46% from a record high. The blue-chip Dow slid 0.92%, though the tech heavy Nasdaq eked out small gains with investors there attaching greater weight to positive data from the services sector than to negative jobs figures. (N) Markets are looking at the "mixed signals from the data, and trying to assess what the Fed will do," said Kyle Rodda, an analyst at IG markets. Rodda said the latest moves were driven by an overnight speech from Fed Vice Chair Richard Clarida which took a more hawkish tone. Clarida, a major architect of the Fed's new policy strategy, said he said he felt the conditions for raising interest rates could be met by the end of 2022. Those remarks helped U.S. yields and the dollar. The benchmark 10-year yield was last at 1.192% up from a U.S. close of 1.184%, having touched 1.127% - its lowest level since February - earlier in the day. This helped the dollar, which bought 109.63 yen, compared with a low of 108.71 on Wednesday. Sterling was little changed against the dollar ahead of a Bank of England Policy meeting. "Although the BoE is widely expected to leave policy interest rates unchanged, there is a risk that the BoE strikes a more hawkish tone because economic activity is improving and inflation has lifted sharply," wrote CBA analysts in a note. The firmer dollar in turn weighed a little on gold, with the spot price falling 0.1%. [GOL/] Oil prices rose, supported by tensions in the Middle East, and recovered a little ground after three straight days of declines driven partly by a surprise build in crude stockpiles in the United State U.S. crude rose 0.37% to $68.4 a barrel while Brent crude climbed 0.41% to $70.59 per barrel, Ether, the world's second-largest cryptocurrency, dropped 0.64% having gained 8.7% a day earlier ahead of a technical adjustment to its underlying ethereum blockchain, which should happen later today. Bitcoin fell 0.8%, resting in the vicinity of $40,000 where it has been for the last week.

Risk sentiment improves across Asia as Chinese and Hong Kong stocks push higher on tech recovery and solid Caixin PMI data. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index fell -57 points to 27,854, the Shanghai Index rose 29 points to 3,477 and the Hang Seng Index jumped 231 points to settle at 26,426.

Some also see the spread of the Covid-19 delta variant as delaying rather than stopping the economic recovery. The New York Times reported overnight that the FDA plans to give full approval to Pfizer (PFE) and BioNTech (BNTX) coronavirus vaccine by the start of the next month. Earnings season has been strong with about 87% of S&P 500 companies reporting earnings and revenue beats, according to FactSet. Just under 70% of the S&P 500 now has reported earnings. The S&P 500 closed at record highs with gains in Apple and healthcare stocks, as concerns over a surge in the Delta variant of the coronavirus was put to the back-burner, overshadowed by continued upbeat corporate earnings. Ten of the 11 S&P indexes traded higher, with energy stocks rebounding after getting hit by a dip in oil prices.
