Oct 24, 2011 , Posted by Diamond Recruit at 5:19 PM




北美市場
美國股市上升,標準普爾500指數創下自2月以來最長單週升勢,因市場猜測歐洲即將在抑制債務危機方面達成協議,及聯儲局可能會推出進一步刺激經濟措施。

聯儲局副主席Janet Yellen表示,央行可能有必要推出第三輪大規模資產購買方案,藉以振興備受失業問題及金融市場動盪所影響的當地經濟。

美國半數省份的失業率於上月份下降,顯示全國企業於9月份增加招聘。勞工部於上週五公佈,25個省份的失業率下降,14個上升及11個持平。

歐洲市場
歐洲股市第四週造好,創下自12月以來最長單週升勢,因市場揣測區內領袖舉行會議,並會接近定出債務危機的解決方案。

歐洲領袖開始六日的努力,商討如何讓希臘免於違約、保護銀行免受衝擊及構建更強而有力的措施來應對危機。他們排除借助歐洲央行的資產負債表來增強援助基金,制定援助銀行的計劃綱要,向遏制源自希臘的主權債務危機的新策略緩慢挪近。

標準普爾指出,在經濟低迷下,可能調低包括法國在內部分歐元區國家的信貸評級。標普發表報告指出,該公司兩個壓力情況只要出現一個,就可能降低西班牙、意大利、愛爾蘭及葡萄牙的主權評級一至兩級。

英國9月份預算赤字收窄幅度高於經濟師預期,顯示英國財政大臣George Osborne的削減支出方案發揮成效。

法國10月份商業信心連續第四個月下跌,因市場憂慮環球增長放緩及歐債危機將削弱需求。

德國10月商業信心下跌到16個月以來低位,反映歐債危機惡化恐造成當地經濟衰退。

日本市場
日本股市下跌,日經225平均指數全週跌幅擴大,因歐盟領袖在週末的歐債危機峰會前考慮推出1.3萬億美元的救助基金。

亞太市場
亞洲股市反覆上落,全週報跌,因市場認為儘管歐洲決策者考慮動用1.3萬億美元資金對付歐債危機,但他們可能將難以達成解決方案。

印度股市創下一個月以來最大單週跌幅,因市場猜測歐洲官員難以達成解決危機方案,及央行可能持續收緊貨幣政策。

中國/香港
中國股市收低,基準指數創下五個月來最大單週跌幅,因投資者認為經濟增長減慢及中國收緊貨幣政策,將損害企業盈利。

中國將允許一些地方政府自行發債,結束長達17年的禁令。截至2010年底,地方政府此前設立數千間融資平臺。中國財政部發佈公告稱,上海市、深圳市,以及浙江省和廣東省將能夠自行發債,無需通過中央政府。

香港股市收高,因此前有消息稱歐洲領袖正在考慮將援救基金的規模擴大到1.3萬億美元,以對抗歐債危機。

新興市場
巴西股市連續第二週造好,因商品價格上升,此前市場憧憬歐洲將定出方案抑制債務危機,刺激當地生產商造好。

俄羅斯股市終止兩日跌勢,並連續第二週上升。鋼鐵及石油股造好,因市場憧憬歐洲的援助措施有助舒緩區內債務危機,帶動商品價格造好。

債券市場
美國30年期國庫券下跌,市場樂觀預期歐洲領袖拿出解決區內主權債務危機的辦法,從而抑制安全美國政府債券的需求。

U.S. Market
U.S. stocks advanced, giving the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index its longest weekly rally since February, amid speculation of an agreement to contain Europe’s debt crisis and further Federal Reserve stimulus.

Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Janet Yellen said a third round of large-scale securities purchases might become warranted if necessary to boost a U.S. economy challenged by unemployment and financial turmoil.

Unemployment rates fell in half of U.S. states last month, a sign that September's pickup in hiring was felt around the country. The Labor Department said Friday that unemployment rates dropped in 25 states, rose in 14 and stayed the same in 11.

European Market
European stocks advanced for a fourth week, for the longest rising streak since December, as investors speculated European leaders meeting will nudge forward a solution to the region’s debt crisis.

European leaders began a six-day battle over how to save Greece from default, shield banks from the fallout and build more powerful defenses against the crisis. They ruled out tapping the European Central Bank’s balance sheet to boost the region’s rescue fund and outlined plans to aid banks, inching toward a revamped strategy to contain the Greece-fueled debt crisis.

France is among euro-region sovereigns likely to be downgraded in a stressed economic scenario, according to Standard & Poor’s. The sovereign ratings of Spain, Italy, Ireland and Portugal would also be reduced by another one or two levels in either of New York-based S&P’s two stress scenarios, the ratings firm said in a report.

Britain’s budget deficit narrowed more than economists forecast in September as Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne’s spending cuts took effect in earnest.

French business confidence fell for a fourth month in October amid concern that slowing global growth and Europe’s debt crisis will crimp demand.

German business confidence fell to a 16-month low in October as the euro region’s worsening debt crisis threatened to push the economy into recession.

Japan Market
Japanese stocks fell, extending losses for the week on the Nikkei 225 Stock Average, as European leaders mulled a $1.3 trillion bailout fund ahead of a summit on the region’s sovereign-debt crisis over the weekend.

Asia / Pacific Market
Asian stocks swung between gains and losses, heading for a weekly drop, on speculation European policy makers will struggle to reach a resolution while they consider deploying $1.3 trillion to fight the region’s debt crisis.

India’s benchmark stock index had the worst weekly loss in a month on speculation European policy makers will struggle to reach a resolution and the country’s central bank may persist with monetary tightening.

China/Hong Kong
China’s stocks fell, capping the benchmark index’s steepest weekly drop in five months, on speculation slowing economic growth and the nation’s tighter monetary policies are hurting earnings.
China will allow some local governments to issue bonds independently, ending a 17-year ban that prompted authorities to set up thousands of companies that racked up $1.7 trillion of liabilities by the end of 2010. The cities of Shanghai and Shenzhen, and the Zhejiang and Guangdong provinces will be able to sell debt themselves instead of going through the central government, according to a Finance Ministry statement.

Hong Kong stocks rose after a report Europe’s leaders are considering a $1.3 trillion package to fight the region’s debt crisis.

Emerging Markets
The Bovespa index posted a second straight weekly advance as a commodities rally spurred by prospects for a deal to contain Europe’s debt crisis lifted Brazilian producers.

Russian stocks snapped two days of declines and posted their second weekly gain as shares of the country’s steelmakers and oil companies rose amid speculation a European rescue package will ease the continent’s debt crisis and lift commodity prices.

Bond Market
Treasury 30-year bonds fell as optimism that European leaders will move closer to a resolution of the region’s sovereign debt crisis sapped demand for the safety of U.S. government securities.
