Financial Tips: 市況速遞 15/2

Feb 15, 2011 , Posted by Diamond Recruit at 11:21 AM





U.S. Market
US stocks rose, reversing an early drop, and the cost to insure Egyptian
debt from default declined as the resignation of the nation's President
Hosni Mubarak and a jump in U.S. consumer confidence bolstered investor
optimism.


The U.S. trade deficit widened in December for a second month as the cost of
imported oil climbed to the highest level in two years.

US consumer confidence rose in February to the highest level in eight months
as decreasing unemployment lifted Americans' spirits.




European Market
European stocks posted a second weekly gain as companies from Swatch Group
AG to Alcatel-Lucent SA reported better-than-expected earnings and after
Egypt's president stepped down.

Asia / Pacific Market
Asian stocks dropped, sending the regional gauge to its first weekly decline
in three weeks, as Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak refused growing calls
for his resignation, and amid reports that China has increased reserve ratio
requirements for some banks.

Taiwan's stocks slumped the most in nine months, the worst performer in
Asia. Taiwan's exports grew faster than estimated in January, indicating
overseas shipments are weathering an appreciation in the island's currency.

Korea's Kospi index fell to the lowest since Dec. 8. The gauge lost this
week, the most since the week to May 23. Hana Financial Group Inc. fell, the
most since Oct. 21, after the company said it will sell 1.43 trillion won
($1.3 billion) worth of new common shares to buy Korea Exchange Bank.

China/ Hong Kong
China's stocks rose, capping a third straight weekly gain for the benchmark
index, as investors sought companies with stronger earnings outlooks given
the backdrop of rising borrowing costs and faster inflation.

Hong Kong stocks rose, paring the benchmark index's worst weekly drop since
May, as exporters gained on a better-than-estimated U.S. jobless report,
countering developers' drop on concern China will further tighten monetary
policy.

Emerging Markets
Brazil's Bovespa stock index surged, posting the first weekly gain in four,
as the cheapest valuations in almost two years lured investors and Egyptian
President Hosni Mubarak's resignation sparked a global rally.

India's industrial output grew at the weakest pace in 20 months, adding to
concern the economy may slow after the steepest interest-rate increases in
Asia.

Bond Market
Treasuries rose, with 10-year notes erasing a weekly loss, as political
change amid continued mass protests in Egypt fueled demand for refuge in
U.S. government assets.
