The U.S. regulator added that questions have also been raised about potentially manipulative deals in the firm's stock in November 2017.

The company said it would be releasing a statement in reaction to the SEC suspension but declined to issue more comments. The regulator said its suspension would be in place until January 3.

BoJ Keeps Monetary Policy Unchanged

Image

The Bank of Japan kept its monetary stimulus unchanged as widely expected on Thursday.

Governor Haruhiko Kuroda and his board members decided by an 8-1 majority vote to hold its target of raising the amount of outstanding JGB holdings at an annual pace of about JPY 80 trillion.

The bank will purchase government bonds so that the yield of 10-year JGBs will remain at around zero percent.

The board also decided to maintain the -0.1 percent interest rate on current accounts that financial institutions maintain at the bank.

With regard to the outlook, Japan's economy is likely to continue its moderate expansion.

The year-on-year rate of change in the CPI is likely to continue on an uptrend and increase toward 2 percent.

Oil prices were on a steady footing after posting solid gains late in the prior session on the back of a decline in U.S. crude stockpiles.

However, another increase in U.S. oil production, which is near to surpassing the 10 million barrels per day level, is limiting crude prices as it erodes efforts led by OPEC and other producers to tighten the market by withholding production this year and through 2018.

U.S. WTI crude futures stood at $58.05 per barrel, falling 3 cents from their last close. The international benchmark for oil prices, Brent crude futures, traded at $64.58 per barrel, falling by 8 cents. Both crude benchmarks edged up around 1 percent during the prior session.

According to traders, the drawdown in U.S. crude oil inventories were providing supporting the market. U.S. crude stockpiles declined by 6.5 million barrels in the week to December 15, according to the Energy Information Administration's report on Wednesday. Total crude stocks declined to 436 million barrels, its lowest level since October 2015.

The rebalancing of supply and demand is a result of OPEC and other participating countries' voluntary production cuts.

U.S. government debt yields were little changed on Thursday, as investors priced in the latest news coming from the U.S. economic sphere.

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note dropped to 2.486 percent, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond was lower at 2.84 percent. Bond yields move inversely to prices.

A major obstacle surrounding overhauling the U.S. tax code was conquered after House Republicans voted to approve tax reform, consequently meaning that the legislation can be sent to President Donald

Trump's desk for a signature by Christmas.

This follows after Republicans had to fix the bill, as a result of violations concerning the Byrd rule.

The overhaul is anticipated to become law for next year, with the bill set to reduce corporation tax rates while temporarily trimming the tax burden for the majority of people.
