    U.S. Producer Prices Drop, Unemployment Claims Rise

    U.S. producer prices dropped for the first time in almost 1- years in December amid falling costs for services, which could weigh on expectations that inflation will pick up this year.

    Separate data showed that initial claims for jobless benefits rose for the fourth consecutive week to over a three-month peak. Winter and snow in parts of the United States likely kept some workers at home, which accounts for the previous week's rise in unemployment claims.

    The U.S. Federal Reserve is projecting three rate hikes for 2018. It raised rates three times in 2017.

    According to the Labor Department, its producer price index for final demand dropped 0.1 percent in December. It was the first decline in the PPI since August 2016 and followed two consecutive monthly growth of 0.4 percent.

    The PPI increased 2.6 percent from the same period in 2016, after accelerating 3.1 percent in November.

    A key gauge of underlying producer price pressures, excluding food, energy and trade services, climbed 0.1 percent in December. The so-called core PPI rose 0.4 percent in November. It increased 2.3 percent in the 12 months through December after rising 2.4 percent in November.

    In the separate report, the Labor Department said initial claims for state unemployment benefits rose 11,000 to a seasonally adjusted 261,000 for the week ended Jan. 6, the highest level since late September.

    Claims have risen since mid-December, though the data tend to be volatile during year-end holidays.

    BRAZIL: Ibovespa Rises To New Record On Expiring Stock Options

    Ibovespa, the benchmark stock index in Brazil, rose 0.51% to 79,752.37 points Monday - a new record settlement - influenced by expiring stock options and data suggesting that the economic recovery in the country gained strength in November. The United States market holiday limited the local trading volume.

    Analysts said that the Ibovespa might be pricing a conviction of the former Brazilian President Luiz In?cio Lula da Silva in a trial scheduled for January 24. A court defeat could bar Lula from running for President in October.

    "The holiday in the United States removes liquidity from the stock market, but investors are expecting January 24 much more than anything else, and apparently the stakes continue to be at Lula's conviction," said the chief economist of Home Broker Modalmais, Alvaro Bandeira. In the short term, analysts expect Ibovespa to follow a bullish trend. The index remained at record levels even after Brazil's rating downgrade by S&P last week.

    For Bandeira, the inflow of foreign investment has offset bad news and helped to sustain Ibovespa's good momentum. However, Rico Investimentos analyst Roberto Indech noted that this week brings some data in Brazil and abroad that may weigh on the stocks.

    Meanwhile, the locally traded U.S. dollar turned positive in the final stretch of the trading day. The greenback's performance was influenced by the holiday of Martin Luther King in the United States, which reflected in lower trading volume. As a result, the locally traded currency closed slightly higher (+0.09%), at R$ 3,210.

    Global Automakers Urge Trump Administration Not to Terminate NAFTA

    Major automakers urged the Trump administration not to terminate the North American Free Trade Agreement and hopes that the United States, Canada and Mexico will be able to conclude a modernized and improved trade pact.

    Trump has threatened to withdraw from NAFTA, which is heavily utilized by automakers that have production and supply chains spread across the three countries.

    Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Chief Executive Sergio Marchionne said he hoped the Trump administration would retune some of its trade talk demands.

    Marchionne said FCA's truck production shift in part goes a long way I think in addressing some of President Trump's concerns about the dislocation of production capacity out of the United States.

    That decision reduces the risk those trucks would be hit with a 25 percent tariff if NAFTA unravels.

    Ford Motor Co CEO Jim Hackett said NAFTA needs to be modernized, adding that of Detroit's Big Three automakers, Ford has the highest percentage of U.S.-built vehicles.

    General Motors CEO Mary Barra expressed optimism NAFTA will survive with improvements. Other senior GM executives stood by the company's plans to continue building trucks in Mexico.

    Australia Jobless Rate Climbs To 5.5% In December

    The unemployment rate in Australia came in at a seasonally adjusted 5.5 percent in December, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said on Thursday.

    The Australian economy added 34,700 jobs last month to 12,440,800, beating forecasts for an increase of 15,100 following the upwardly revised 63,600 gain in the previous month (originally 61,600).

    Oil Prices Rally on Disruption Threats in Nigeria, declining U.S. Inventories

    Oil prices edged up on a reported decline in U.S. crude stockpiles and as militant groups in Nigeria threatened to launch an assault on the nation's petroleum infrastructure.

    But prices continued to be below the three-year highs as fuel stockpiles continue to be ample and as refineries reduce operations.

    Brent crude futures stood at $69.56 per barrel, 18 cents or 0.3 percent higher from their last settlement. On Monday, the international benchmark hit their highest level since December-2015 high of $70.37 per barrel.

    U.S. WTI crude futures traded at $64.25 per barrel, 28 cents or 0.4 percent higher from their last close. WTI hit their highest level since December, 2014 at $64.89 per barrel.

    According to traders, prices have been lifted by reports that Nigeria's rebel group Niger Delta Avengers threaten to attack the nation's oil sector in the next few days.

    Markets also received support from a decline in crude inventories. U.s. crude inventories declined by 5.1 million barrels in the latest week to 411.5 million, according to API.

    Despite the overall upbeat sentiment in the markets, analysts warned that the recent rally, which has raised crude by around 14 percent since early December, may be on the verge of a correction.

    U.S. Inflation Expectations Jumps to Highest Level Since 2014

    A significant market measure of inflation expectations has increased to its strongest level since 2014, as investors' deliver solid demand to purchase protection against the threat of rising interest rates and dropping bond prices.

    The 10-year break-even rate, a market measure of inflation expectations derived from Treasury Inflation Protected Securities, has increased to 2.09 percent, it's highest level since September 2014 when oil prices were collapsing. The impact of oil prices on break-evens is strong, with analysts attributing at least part of the recent rise in inflation expectations to rising oil prices.

    At a $13 billion auction of TIPS on Thursday, primary dealers responsible for bidding on a pro rata share of the auction to ensure the sale of the debt walked away with a smaller than average share of the securities, as other investors came in aggressively to buy.

    The 10-year Treasury yield has increased 20 basis points so far this year to 2.6 percent on Thursday, closing in on its 2017 high of 2.63 percent.

    The strong demand for TIPS showed a growing belief that price pressure is building from improving global demand and pushing domestic inflation to the Federal Reserve's 2 percent target.

    Improving business activity around the world has supported oil and other commodity prices, reinforcing the view of rising inflation, analysts said.

    The ratio of bids to the amount of 10-year TIPS offered was 2.69, which was the highest reading since May 2014.

    Japan December Trade Surplus Y358.971 Billion

    Japan posted a merchandise trade surplus of 358.971 billion yen in December, the Ministry of Finance said on Wednesday - down 43.5 percent on year.

    The headline figure was shy of expectations for a surplus 520.0 billion yen following the 113.4 billion yen surplus in November.

    Exports climbed 9.3 percent on year to 7.302 trillion yen, also missing forecasts for a gain or 9.8 percent and down from 16.2 percent in the previous month.

    Exports to Asia advanced 9.9 percent on year to 4.111 trillion yen, while exports to China alone jumped an annual 15.8 percent to 1.507 trillion yen.

    Exports to the United States gained 3.0 percent on year to 1.411 trillion yen and exports to the European Union jumped an annual 11.4 percent to 792.213 billion yen.

    Imports advanced an annual 14.9 percent to 6.943 trillion yen versus expectations for a gain of 12.4 percent and down from 17.2 percent a month earlier.

    Imports from Asia climbed 15.7 percent on year to 3.379 trillion yen, while imports from China alone gained an annual 14.8 percent to 1.704 trillion yen.

    Imports from the United States were up 7.5 percent to 699.419 billion yen, while imports from the European Union gained 9.8 percent to 786.388 billion yen.

    Also on Wednesday, the latest survey from Nikkei said that the manufacturing sector in Japan continued to expand in January, and at an accelerated rate, with a manufacturing PMI score of 54.4.

    That's up from 54.0 in December, and it moves further above the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

    Individually, output expanded at the quickest rate in 47 months, while new orders continued to rise sharply.

    Inflationary pressures intensified.

    Nasdaq, S&P End at Record Peaks; Dow Weighed Down by J&J, Procter

    U.S. stocks rose on Tuesday, as solid results from Netflix helped boost the S&P and Nasdaq Composite. However, losses in Johnson & Johnson and Procter & Gamble added pressure on the Dow Industrials.

    The Nasdaq composite ended at a record peak, rising 0.7 percent to 7,460.29. The S&P 500 also closed at an all-time peak, gaining 0.2 percent at 2,839.13, as the corporate earnings season continued. The Dow Jones industrial average notched an intraday record, before closing 3.79 points lower at 26,210.81.

    Video streaming giant Netflix after the close announced that total net adds reached 8.33 million, well above a StreetAccount estimate of 6.39 million. Netflix's stock jumped ten percent, lifting the company's market cap above $100 billion for the first time.

    Dow components Johnson & Johnson, Procter & Gamble and Travelers Cos. all posted better-than-expected earnings and revenue on Tuesday. Verizon, another Dow component, posted a profit that fell short of expectations, while sales exceeded analyst estimates.

    Other stocks, known as part of the FAANG - Facebook, Apple, Amazon and Google parent Alphabet - also moved higher.

    Insurer Travelers provided the biggest boost to the Dow, climbing 5.32 percent after the company's profit topped estimates.

    Equities are off to a strong start for the year, with the three major indexes rising at least 6 percent in January. Stocks are building on the strong gains made in 2017.

    Whirlpool jumped 3.2 percent after Trump approved a 20 percent tariff on the first 1.2 million imported large residential washing machines in the first year and a 50 percent tariff on machines above that number.

    BRAZIL: Ibovespa Spikes 3.7% And Sets New Record Following Lula Conviction

    Ibovespa, the benchmark stock market index in Brazil, rose 3.72% to 83,680 points Wednesday, a new settlement record amid a R$ 15.69 billion trading volume - nearly twice the average.

    The rally was the result of a higher court unanimously upholding former president Lula's conviction for corruption and money laundering, which may reduce the chances of the center-left leader competing in this year's election.

    "The markets have reacted positively to Lula's trial. The conviction lessens the likelihood of him becoming a presidential candidate, and this reinforces the expectation that a more centrist candidate be elected," said Guide Investimentos analyst Ign?cio Crespo.

    According to chief economist of Gradual Investimentos, Andr? Perfeito, "we will still have many developments in Lula's campaign to become a presidential candidate. Today's episode may have been dramatic, but it is far from definitive."

    In the conviction, the three judges increased the former president's prison sentence for 12 years and a month and indicated that he could be arrested after all the resources have been exhausted in TRF4. According to H. Commcor's chief operating officer, Ari Santos, the result was "predictable," but encouraged the markets.

    The locally traded U.S. dollar reached minimum levels in the year against the Brazilian after Lula's conviction in the second instance. The greenback fell 2.43%, closing at R$ 3.1600, after reaching the intraday low of R$ 3.1530 (-2.73%).

    For Friday, Santos projects that the index may fall into a profit-taking movement. For Crespo, however, the index may remain positive.

    "The scenario remains optimistic for Brazil in the short and medium term," says the analyst.

    The Ibovespa will remain closed Thursday for a local holiday.

    UK Employment Notched Record Peaks

    Employment in Britain increased in the three months to the end of November, surpassing analysts expectations as pressure on employers to find skilled staff seems to have pushed up wages.

    The number of people in work grew by 102,000 compared with the previous three months, bringing the number of people employed to 32.21 million, a fresh record peak. Analysts had forecasted a decline of 13,000.

    The jobless rate was 4.3 percent over the three month period.

    The employment rate, which measures the proportion of 16- to 64-year-olds in work, reached 75.3 percent, a figure that was higher than for a year earlier and the joint highest since comparable records began in 1971.

    The UK labour market has created large numbers of jobs since the financial crisis but has struggled to generate real wage growth. Many of the jobs created have also been part time or self-employed.

    However, the latest figures show an increase in the number of full time jobs, with the number of self-employed falling by 82,000.

    Average weekly earnings were 2.5 percent higher than the previous year, including bonuses, and 2.4 percent higher excluding bonuses. That compares with 2.5 percent and 2.3 percent respectively during the previous three month period.

    The Office for National Statistics, which produces the figures, calculates that this means real earnings dropped by 0.2 percent over the past year, including bonuses, and by 0.5 percent without them.

    According to the ONS, the number of job vacancies increased to a record peak of 810,000 in the three months to the end of October.

    Japan Labor Demand Grew in December

    Labor demand in Japan increased in December to its highest in over 40 years, which could provide labor unions extra leverage in impending spring wage negotiations.

    The jobs data implies that employers may be more likely to heed the government's call to increase wages by three percent or more at annual negotiations with unions this spring, boosting the chance that consumer spending and inflation will accelerate.

    The jobs-to-applicants ratio climbed to 1.59 from 1.56 in November, which is the highest since January 1974.

    The seasonally adjusted jobless rate rose to 2.8 percent from 2.7 percent in November, according to the Internal Affairs ministry. Economists' median forecast was for the jobless rate to remain at 2.7 percent, the lowest since November 1993.

    Retail sales grew in December by the most in nearly three years on higher spending on cars and clothes, separate data showed, which could ease concerns about a sudden drop in household spending in the same month.

    Sales were 3.6 percent higher in December from the previous year, compared with a median market forecast for a 1.8 percent rise. That also recorded the biggest increase since a 4.9 percent annual increase in April 2015.

    Japanese household spending, which is different from retail sales because it is based on surveys sent to a small sample of consumers, dropped 0.1 percent in December from a year earlier in price-adjusted real terms.

    Japan marked seven consecutive quarters of economic growth to end-September, its longest uninterrupted stretch of expansion since 1994.
