ForexLive Asia FX news wrap: Gold higher

Forex news for Asia trading on
Tuesday

October 2021

It
was a session of minor moves after the holiday Monday in North
America (US stock exchanges were open) … which was not much of a
holiday for markets with big FX moves and some equity falls.

Forex
movement here during Asia has been much more limited with
small ranges prevailing and not a lot of net change.

News
and data flow was not large either but there were some notable
developments (that did not move FX as noted above).

  • Japan
    wholesale inflation hit a
    13-year high, this
    puts
    the squeeze on industry profits as costlier input prices are not
    being passed on to consumers (CPI remains moribund). This
    will weigh on business capex ahead, fewer profits mean fewer yen to
    spend on business investment.
  • Business confidence in Australia in September bounced strongly, offset by a fall in business conditions. The ‘conditions’ measure is measured more objectively than the confidence sentiment. 
  • And
    this from China’s
    NDRC – is
    pushing for all industrial and
    commercial users to enter the
    power

    market,
    in an
    orderly
    way.
  • The
    world’s largest seller of liquefied natural gas (LNG), Qatar said
    it is not in a position to supply more, its ‘maxed out’ says its
    energy minister.
  • The
    Bank of Korea left its key rate unchanged at its policy meeting but
    did note more needs to be done on inflation in coming meetings.
