New Zealand Q Unemployment Rate Dips To 6.2%

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The unemployment rate in New Zealand was 6.2 percent in the first quarter of 2013, Statistics New Zealand said on Thursday.

That handily beat forecasts for 6.8 percent, which would have been unchanged following a revision from 6.9 percent.

The employment change added 38,000 more people or 1.7 percent on quarter and 0.3 percent on year after rising 0.8 percent on quarter and falling 0.7 percent on year in the previous three months. The rise in employment came mainly from full-time employment and was across a range of industries, the bureau said.

"We saw labor market conditions improve over the quarter as employment increased and unemployment fell. This improvement followed a period of weakness over 2012, when employment and labor force participation fell," industry and labor statistics manager Diane Ramsay said. "However, while this is a strong turnaround, the labor market has yet to recover to levels seen at the start of last year."

The participation rate was 67.8 percent, matching forecasts and up from 67.2 percent three months earlier.

The employment rate rose to 63.7 percent in Q1, up from 62.7 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012. The number of people unemployed fell by 15,000 over the quarter. "We usually see actual unemployment rise in March quarters as a result of seasonal factors, such as students entering the job market.

We didn't see this happen this quarter, and this has resulted in a larger than expected seasonally adjusted quarterly fall," Ramsay said. The number of people outside the labor force decreased in the March 2013 quarter.

Dollar Jumps To New Multi-year High Vs. Yen, 5-week High Vs. Swiss Franc

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The US dollar extended its overnight gains against the currencies of Japan and Switzerland on Friday morning in Asia.

The greenback jumped to 100.94 against the yen, its strongest level since April 2009 and a 0.3 percent appreciation from Thursday's close of 100.63.

On the upside, the dollar-yen pair may find target around the 103.0 level.

The greenback also continued to creep higher against the Swiss franc, rising back above the key 0.95 level after a gap of 5-weeks.

The dollar rose as high as 0.9507 against the Swiss franc, adding almost 0.3 percent from Thursday's closing quote of 0.9481. The next likely resistance level for the greenback-franc pair is seen around the 0.9540 level.

Japan GDP Rises 0.9% On Quarter In Q1

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Japan's gross domestic product expanded 0.9 percent in the first quarter of 2013 compared to the previous three months, the Cabinet Office said in Thursday's preliminary report.

The headline figure beat forecasts for an increase of 0.7 percent following the flat reading in the previous three months.

Q4's reading barely broke a string of three straight quarters in the red. On a yearly basis, GDP jumped 3.5 percent - also topping expectations for a gain of 2.7 percent following the upwardly revised 0.2 percent increase in Q4. Nominal GDP was up 0.4 percent on quarter, just shy of forecasts for 0.5 percent after dipping 0.3 percent in the previous quarter.

The GDP deflator was down 0.4 percent on quarter after easing 0.3 percent in the three months prior.

On year, the deflator was down 1.2 percent versus forecasts for 0.9 percent after falling 0.7 percent in Q4. Capital spending declined 0.7 percent on quarter, missing expectations for an increase of 0.7 percent following the 1.5 percent contraction in the previous three months.

Private consumption added 0.9 percent, while exports made a 0.4 percent net contribution to GDP.

Dollar Gaining Ground On Strong Consumer Sentiment Data

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The dollar is climbing against all of its major competitors at the end of the trading week.

The stronger than expected increase in U.S. consumer confidence helped to assure investors of recovery in the U.S. economy, following the release of some weak data in recent days.

Consumer sentiment in the U.S. has seen a substantial improvement in the month of May, according to a report released by Thomson Reuters and the University of Michigan on Friday, with the consumer sentiment index rising to its highest level in nearly six years.

Japan Data On Tap For Monday

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Japan is scheduled to release a batch of data on Monday, highlighting a modest day for Asia-Pacific economic activity.

On tap are final March figures for the leading and coincident indexes, plus April numbers for machine tool orders, convenience store sales, department store sales and Tokyo condominium sales.

In addition, the Cabinet Office will release its monthly economic report for May.

The leading and coincident indexes are expected to see little change from the preliminary reading that suggested scores of 97.6 and 93.3, respectively.

Machine tool orders plummeted 24.1 percent on year in March, while convenience store sales eased 0.4 percent, department store sales added 3.9 percent and condominium sales surged 48.4 percent. New Zealand will see the April results for its Performance of Services index; in March, it came in at 55.4.

Thailand will provide gross domestic product numbers for the first quarter of 2013; in the previous three months, GDP was up 3.6 percent on quarter and 18.9 percent on year.

Hong Kong will announce its unemployment rate for April, with forecasts suggesting 3.4 percent - easing from 3.5 percent in March.

The won stood at 1,127.6 per dollar at 0030 GMT, just above 1,128.7 at the end of local trade on Thursday, when the South Korean currency fell 1.3 percent as an equity selloff around the world sparked a flight to safer assets.

Bond futures fell as concerns about the equity selloff eased and South Korea's central bank chief warned of risks from the future unwinding of massive monetary stimulus by the world's major central banks.

Dollar Little Changed Ahead Of The Long Weekend

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The dollar is little changed in comparison to its major competitors on Friday. With equity markets adding to their recent weakness, investors appear hesitant to take a position ahead of the long holiday weekend.

After reporting a sharp drop in new orders for manufactured durable goods in the previous month, the Commerce Department released a report on Friday showing that durable goods orders rebounded by more than anticipated in the month of April.

The report said durable goods orders surged up by 3.3 percent in April after tumbling by a revised 5.9 percent in March. Economists had expected orders to climb 1.1 percent compared to the 5.7 percent drop that had been reported for the previous month.

The Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) is a more stable union today than it was a year ago, European Central Bank President Mario Draghi said Thursday. Also "markets are fully confident that the euro is a strong and stable currency," he said in a speech in London.

Speaking on the deep financial and economic interconnectedness between Europe and the UK, Draghi said Europe needs "a more European UK" as much as the UK needs a more British Europe.

Eurozone's economic activity will likely stabilize sooner rather than later, supported by the gradually improving consumer confidence and the boost to purchasing power coming from low inflation, IHS Global Insight Chief UK and European Economist Howard Archer said.

An index measuring corporate service prices in Japan was down 0.4 percent on year in April, the Bank of Japan said on Tuesday, standing at 96.1.

That missed forecasts for a decline of 0.2 percent, which would have been unchanged from the previous month.

On a monthly basis, corporate service prices were down 0.3 percent after rising 0.7 percent in March. Among the individual components, prices were up for advertising and transportation. They were down for real estate and flat for other services.

U.s. Dollar Trumps the Rest

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The dollar gained broadly in early Asian trade on Wednesday after robust economic data boosted Treasury yields and raised expectations that the Fed may make an early exit from its easing scheme, making the greenback more attractive.

Against a basket of currencies, the dollar rose 0.2 percent to 84.33 after tacking on 0.7 percent in the previous session.

Demand for dollars rose as Treasury yields surged to their highest in a year and the Dow stock index hit another record high.
