Aussie up on Chinas government officials statement

Australian dollar received support after on October 17th a government official from China said that the central bank is intending to provide national and regional lenders with about 200 billion yuan (32.7 billion USD) in order to help them satisfy year-end liquidity needs. Last month the Chinese central bank injected 500 billion yuan into the first five largest banks in the country. China is Australias largest trading partner.

Japan’s Pension Fund report

According to the Nikkei newspaper, the $1.2 trillion Government Pension Investment Fund (GPIF) is to boost its target for foreign bonds and shares to almost 30% from 23%. The planned review of fund’s assets may occur as late as December, because of different views on the best timing, expressed by fund officials, its investment committee and the health ministry, according to Takatoshi Ito, a government adviser. The yen lost ground against its major peers, following this announcement.

“The fact that they’ve put numbers on the reallocation implies that they’re closer to implementing it and the flows actually occurring,” said Sam Tuck, a senior currency strategist at ANZ Bank New Zealand Ltd. in Auckland, cited by Bloomberg News. “Markets will be looking at those flows as supportive for equity markets and outflows from Japan, which would both be negative for the yen based on current correlations.”
