Malaysia Inflation Eases More Than Forecast

Image

Malaysia's consumer price inflation eased at a faster-than-expected pace in June to the lowest level in more than three years, following the withdrawal of the GST, figures from the Department of Statistics showed Wednesday.

Consumer prices rose 0.8 percent year-over-year in June, slower than the 1.8 percent increase in May. Economists had expected the inflation to moderate to 1.3 percent. For the first time within 40 months, the consumer price index recorded a value below 1.0 percent in June.

The abolishment of the GST by the government and discounts and price control measures during the Aidilfitri celebrations had a remarkable impact on goods prices, the agency said.

On a monthly basis, consumer prices dropped 1.2 percent in June.

UK Household Finance Outlook Turns Positive July

Image

British households' finance outlook turned positive for the first time since March 2016, while their financial pressures softened in July, results of a survey by IHS Markit and financial information provider Ipsos Mori revealed Monday.

The seasonally adjusted Household Finance Index, or HFI, rose to 44.6 in July from 43.6 in June.

However, a score below 50 suggests pessimism regrading finances among the U.K. households.

The index measuring the outlook for financial well-being over the next twelve months, climbed to 51.3 in July from 48.2 in the previous month.

A continued solid increase in income from employment and softer inflationary pressures combined to help ease the perceived strain on current finances.

On the price front, inflation expectations eased to a 19-month low in July, indicating that UK households forsee a softer squeeze from inflationary pressures over the next year.

"Nonetheless, households shifted their interest rate rise expectations towards the near-term, with around half of respondents anticipating a Bank of England rate rise before the end of the year," Sam Teague, Economist at IHS Markit, said.

Australia's Consumer Confidence Weakens

Image

Australia's consumer confidence weakened during the week ended July 22, a weekly survey compiled by the ANZ bank and Roy Morgan Research showed Tuesday.

The consumer confidence index dropped to 118.9 from 121.5 in the preceding week. Moreover, this was the lowest value in seven months.

"The decline in confidence was primarily driven by a weakening in sentiment around current and future economic conditions," ANZ's head of Australian Economics, David Plank, said.

"This likely reflects ongoing geopolitical tensions, such as the extending of trade tensions beyond the US and China."

Australia Q2 Import Prices Rise More Than Expected

Image

Australia's import prices increased at a faster-than-expected pace in the three months ended June, figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics showed Thursday.

The import price index climbed 3.2 percent sequentially in the second quarter, faster than the 2.0 percent rise in the first quarter. It was the third consecutive quarterly increase.

That was above the 1.9 percent rise economists had forecast.

The increase was driven by higher prices paid for petroleum, petroleum products and related materials, general industrial machinery, electrical machinery, apparatus and appliances.

On a yearly basis, imports prices grew at a faster rate of 6.0 percent in the June quarter, after a 2.6 percent gain in the March quarter.

Data also revealed that export prices grew 1.9 percent quarterly and by 6.6 percent yearly in the June quarter.

BRAZIL: DI Rates Close Mixed On Thursday

Image

The one-day interbank deposit futures rates (DI rates) in Brazil ended mixed Thursday. While the shorter maturities closed stable in an adjustment movement, the longer ones rose, tracking the locally traded U.S. dollar appreciation against the Brazilian real.

"The shorter DIs did not keep up with the dollar and were relatively well-behaved, even though they made maximums throughout the session. The perception is that the dollar's rise is much more technical, an adjustment, than a perception of improvement in the assets," said H.Commcor operator Cleber Alessie.

Alessie stressed that longer maturities have risen in line with the U.S. currency.

"It was a day of profit-taking," he pondered.

The January 2019 DI contract rate closed stable at 6.625%, while the January 2020 DI rate was at 7.91%, from 7.93% in the previous settlement. The January 2021 DI contract rate settled at 8.94%, from 8.93%.
