    Japanese/English The financial turmoil experienced in Asia appears to be continuing into the new year.

The Thai baht plunged to a record low on Monday in the first day of domestic trading of 1998, passing the milestone of 50 baht to the U-S dollar. Dealers said the decline was triggered by a fall in other regional currencies on Friday.

And as the government struggles to rebuild--a spokesman says banks may be asked to ease loans for TEPCO, the owner of the leaking Fukushima nuclear plant. That was bad news for banks today; but the markets were good to Japan's automakers. Here's more. Japan's Nikkei average hit a two-week low on Friday (May 13), as bank shares tumbled after the government spokesman said that banks are likely to be asked to ease troubled TEPCO's loan burden. The benchmark Nikkei average closed, down 0.7 (seven tenths of a percent) percent at 9,648, while the broader Topix fell 1.1 percent to just under 840. Shares in utilities also took a hit, after Japan's government approved a plan to help TEPCO compensate victims of the crisis at its tsunami-crippled nuclear plant. Foreign investors flocked to buy automakers like Nissan and Toyota, due to concrete details of their post-earthquake recovery plans. Nissan gained 3.7 percent to 824 yen after the carmaker reported a stronger than expected 7.2 percent rise in quarterly operating profit, despite Japan's earthquake. It also predicted its global output would return to normal by October. Toyota rose 1.3 percent to 3,415 yen and Honda gained 1.6 percent to 3,150 yen. And commodity stocks extended their losses, with Index shedding 1.6 percent to 554,000 yen, JX Holdings slipping 1.7 percent to 528 yen and Sumitomo Metail Mining dropping 1.4 percent to 1,333 yen, hit by ongoing jitters about volatility in commodity prices.

1. Various of Tokyo Stock Exchange interior STORYLINE: Tokyo's main stock index plunged to a new 17-year low on Wednesday amid continuing concerns about the Japanese economy and financial system. The benchmark 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average fell 209.64 points, or 1.87 percent, to 10,979.76 - over 20 points below the psychologically important 11-thousand-point level. It was the lowest since the index's October 20, 1984 close of 10,928.68. Many traders are bracing themselves for the Nikkei to fall below 10-thousand points in the near future. The Tokyo Stock Price Index (TOPIX), a broader measure of the market than the blue chip-heavy Nikkei, also marked its lowest close on Wednesday since March 1999. It was down 23.39 points, or 2.03 percent, to 1,126.86. Also hurting sentiment was an estimate from Financial Affairs Minister Hakuo Yanagisawa late on Tuesday that it is likely to take seven years to halve bad debts in Japan's banking industry. In order to reinvigorate the slumping stock market, the Financial Services Agency said on Wednesday it has proposed a cut in the capital gains tax for stock transactions to 10 percent from 26 percent, local media reported. The proposed tax break is intended to lure individuals to invest in the stock market instead of keeping their savings in bank accounts, the FSA officials said. They said maintaining the dearth of small investors in the market is to blame for the prolonged slump in Japanese stock prices.

It was no wonder that the market got off to a shaky start on Monday when many investors stayed away. Some investors - rocked by a string of Japanese corporate failures in recent months - sold off their stocks. They feared that more Japanese companies could face insolvency in the coming months. Companies which have collapsed recently include Yamaichi Securities, Japan's fourth-largest brokerage, and Nitto Kogyo, a major golf course management firm. The fall in shares helped the yen to start trading higher, but later in the day it too fell. This was despite a strong verbal intervention by the Japanese Vice Finance Minister Eisuke Sakakibara during a television interview. He said the government would do its utmost to support the yen. Meanwhile, Japan's Foreign Minister Keizo Obuchi arrived in Seoul on Monday for talks aimed at stabilising the South Korean economic crisis. Major banks from Japan, the United States and Europe will also meet on Monday in New York to discuss financial support for South Korea. The Nikkei Stocks Average closed at 14,775.22. The U-S dollar bought 130.13 yen in mid-afternoon trading, down 0.11 yen from late Friday and also below its late New York rate of 130.41 yen.

Various of Tokyo Stock Exchange trading floor STORYLINE: Japan's benchmark stock index rose sharply on Wednesday morning following an emergency interest rate cut by the US Federal Reserve on Tuesday. The benchmark Nikkei index gained 421.27 points, or 3.35 per cent, to end morning trade at 12,994.32 points on the Tokyo Stock Exchange. Stock prices rebounded as investors welcomed the Fed's larger-than-expected 0.75 percentage point rate cut, which also prompted the dollar's gains against the yen, traders said. Many investors looked for bargains following sharp losses earlier this week. The index plunged 752.89 points, or 5.7 per cent on Tuesday over fears about a US recession and a possible global slowdown, closing at 12,573.05, its lowest finish since September 8, 2005. Japanese Finance Minister Fukushiro Nukaga welcomed Wednesday's stock gains in Tokyo and said that the US Federal Reserve rate cut would help Japanese market recovery. Banking issues, including Mizuho Financial Group and Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Mitsubishi UFJ, as well as blue chips such as Toyota Motor, Canon an TDK, led the morning gains. The US Federal Reserve's rate cut Tuesday gave Wall Street a partial rebound from a precipitous early decline. The Dow Jones industrial average, down 465 points shortly after trading began, bounced around throughout the session before closing with a milder drop of 128.11, or 1.06 per cent, at 11,971.19. Japan's broader Topix index, which includes all shares on the Tokyo exchange's first section, was up 45.27 points, or 3.71 percent, at 1,265.20 points. The Topix had lost 5.7 per cent on Tuesday to 1,219.95. In currencies, the dollar bought 106.90 yen at late morning in Tokyo, up from 106.48 yen late Tuesday in New York. The euro rose to 1.4636 from 1.4612 US dollars.

The Nikkei rose after no further damage was reported at the crippled nuclear plant in northeast Japan following Thursday night's aftershock. Traders say the Nikkei gained momentum in line with rises in oil and gold prices during Asian trade, with the yen's extended falls against the euro bolstering overall sentiment. Japanese stocks have been buoyant from the morning, supported by a strong performance from major retailers. The Nikkei was also helped by the surge in shares of Tokyo Electric Power, after its stock jumped more than 20 percent. TEPCO rose sharply after Mizuho Securities lowered its target price on the stock to 900 yen, which is still more than double the current level, and rated it (quote) "outperform." Tokyo Electric shares closed up 23.5 percent at 420 yen.

English/Nat Tokyo shares have tumbled a day after posting their biggest gain since January, while the dollar took a breather after its free-fall the day before. The Nikkei share average was down more than five percent by Thursday afternoon, as shares in leading exporters were sold amid worries that a surge in the yen against the dollar could hit profits. The dollar fell a stunning 8 percent, partly because of optimism that Japan is close to a deal to restructure its bloated banking sector. It was the biggest one-day drop in percentage terms in a quarter of a century. The dollar was trading at around 120.60 yen at midday, a spectacular fall of about 12 yen from just 24 hours earlier. Currency traders said there was still a strong view that the yen would again fall back in the longer term, but at the same time predicted that the climb would continue for now. SOUNDBITE: (English) "It looks like a change in trend for the yen. This kind of move doesn't come very often and now we're starting to see some people reviewing their views on the yen and saying well, maybe it isn't going to weaken any further." SUPER CAPTION: Jason James, Head of Research, HSBC Securities, Japan There were a number of reasons for the yen's strong performance. There's optimism that Japan's government will soon enact a bill designed to strengthen the country's ailing banks. The ruling Liberal Democratic Party had been wrangling with opposition forces for weeks over the bank plan but the major sticking points had been resolved by the time the bill was submitted to Parliament on Wednesday The possibility of large-scale extra spending by the Japanese government to stimulate the economy also played a part. In addition, previously upbeat views on the U-S economy have dimmed, raising further worries about the negative impact on Japanese exporters' profits. Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan's remarks hinting at further rate cuts weighed on dollar sentiment, dealers said. Tokyo stock prices fell as investors collected their profits. It followed the market's second-largest point gain for the year. Tokyo's benchmark Nikkei Stock Average of 225 selected issues fell 278.26 points, or 2.01 percent, to 13,547.35 in the first 30 minutes of trading.

English/Nat Japan's Nikkei Index plunged more than 400 points in the first hour of trading Tuesday in the wake of a steep sell-off overnight in New York. The benchmark 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average fell 260.74 points, or 1.53 percent, to 16,777.62 points in the first 30 minutes of trading. That was its lowest level so far this year. On Monday, the average lost 325.38 points, or 1.87 percent. The drop was prompted by the overnight plunge in New York and sharply lower Nikkei futures on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. Tokyo stock prices fell sharply in early trading Tuesday following the worst ever single-day point drop on Wall Street overnight. The U-S dollar was lower against the yen. in Monday trading, the Dow Jones industrial average lost 554.26 points to 7,161.15, or 7.2 percent. Trading was terminated before the end of the session due to the steep decline. It was the biggest one-day percentage decline since Oct. 26, 1987, a week after the Black Monday crash, when the market fell 22.6 percent. The broader Tokyo Stock Price Index of all issues listed on the first section was down 19.05 points, or 1.45 percent, to 1,293.40. The TOPIX closed down 19.24 points, or 1.44 percent Monday. The selling spree on Wall Street capped a day of global turmoil on financial markets, touched off by a resumption of big declines in Hong Kong. The selling, initially on concerns over the financial future of the once-booming Asian economy, fed on worries over the prognosis for the bull market. SOUNDBITE:(English) "Fundamentally, players in the Tokyo market have been very worried anyway. There's the extraordinary pessimism out there concerning the Japanese economy. And if in that situation we have big declines in Hong Kong, in Asia and now Wall Street, which seemed until recently the only market that was just going up and up and up. People panicked and of course we saw a massive sell-off this morning." SUPER CAPTION: Richard Werner, Chief Economist, Jardine Fleming Securities On the foreign exchange market, the dollar was traded at 121.66 yen, down 0.28 yen from late in Tokyo on Monday and below its late New York level of 121.88 yen overnight. The yield on the benchmark No. 182 10-year Japanese government bond fell to 1.610 percent from 1.650 percent Monday, driving its price up to 109.72 yen from 109.42.

ZHANG: Asia stocks were mixed on Tuesday. Financial shares were boosted by hopes that U.S. bond insurers will keep their credit ratings. But a ratings downgrade of Japanese mobile carrier KDDI pressured the benchmark Nikkei near the end of the session. KDDI shares dropped 5 percent. Japan's Nikkei ended only 0.7 percent lower (13,825), but the index had hit fresh six-week highs earlier in the day. Korean stocks also ended lower, but had tapped five-week highs early in the session. Hong Kong property stocks were among the top performers. HSBC was also a top gainer in Hong Kong. The global bank jumped after Standard and Poor's removed a threat to downgrade the ratings of bond insurers, easing concerns about sub-prime related losses at big lending houses. On the downside, gold extended losses after the U.S. Treasury said it would support gold sales by the International Monetary Fund, which holds more than 3,000 tonnes of bullion. Australian gold miner Rio Tinto fell despite reporting a 9 percent rise in underlying profit. The firm again rebuffed a $147 billion takeover bid from BHP Billliton.

Wide of Stock Exchange STORYLINE: Japanese shares fell sharply in early trade on Thursday, pressured by lingering fears over a global recession as investors looked past Barack Obama's US presidential victory. The benchmark Nikkei 225 stock average dropped 440.59 points, or 4.63 percent, to 9,080.65 as of 9:50 am (0050 GMT) in line with a 5.05-percent fall on Wall Street on Wednesday. Investors also locked in profits after the Nikkei index jumped more than 4 percent the previous day. Tokyo analysts said sentiment turned downbeat in Tokyo as investors sold export-linked shares on the back of a strong yen. A rising yen hurts exporters like Sony and Toyota as it cuts the value of their profits when repatriated to Japan. The broader Topix also shed 4.25 percent to 925.79 in early trade on Thursday. In New York on Wednesday, volatility swept over the US market again, with the Dow Jones industrials falling nearly 500 points and all the major indexes tumbling more than 5 percent. While the market had expected Obama to win the election, investors were worrying about the weakness of the world's largest economy and pondered what the Obama administration might do. Analysts said the market is already anxious about who Obama selects as the next Treasury Secretary, as well as who he picks for other Cabinet positions.

Natural Sound The U-S dollar has rebounded against the yen following a rally in U-S markets late last week. Tokyo stocks rose sharply, closing up 2.23 per cent on Monday. That followed a plunge last Friday when the Nikkei average saw its largest drop this year in both points and percentage. The plunge was sparked by fears over Japan's worsening economy and instability in global financial markets. Stock prices are rising in Japan. Last Friday saw the benchmark Nikkei Stock Average suffer its largest drop this year both in points and percentages. But at close of trading on Monday it was up 2.23 per cent. Friday's plunge had two causes -- the overall worsening of the Japanese economy and general instability in the global markets. All of this prompted Japanese Prime Minister Keizo Obuchi to hit the industrial heartland at the weekend, talking to small business leaders and visiting factories. He was getting a sense of what impact the country's worst recession in decades is really having on average people. It's a rare sight in Japan to see the Prime Minister on the factory floor. Japanese stocks rallied on Monday afternoon on reports that the ruling Liberal Democratic Party is proposing a new plan to bailout the Long-Term Credit Bank of Japan. That news triggered hope for a quick solution to deadlocked deliberations in Parliament about the bank's future.

Wide of exchange with stocks board in background 5. Close of electronic stocks board 6. Wide of exchange interior STORYLINE Japanese stocks rose slightly in early trading on Friday with the benchmark Nikkei up around half a percent. In Tokyo the Nikkei 225 hit 7496.78 in early trading, up around 0.52 percent. The broader Topix index was also slightly up at 745.43, a rise of 0.39 percent. Brokers said the feeling on the stock exchange floor was mixed as investors weighed up bleak economic data showing a sharp fall in industrial production in January and optimism buoyed by the weaker yen, which helps the export-dependent Japanese economy. Industrial production in Japan plunged at a record pace in January as manufacturers continued to slash output amid collapsing global demand, the government said on Friday. Output at Japanese manufacturers tumbled 10 percent from the previous month, the largest drop since Tokyo began measuring such data in 1953. The figure marks the fourth straight month of retreat and is worse than December's 9.8 percent fall. Declines were particularly steep among makers of cars, electronics and general machinery, according to the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. The government's survey predicts that industrial production will decelerate 8.3 percent in February before climbing 2.8 percent in March. In a separate report, household spending, a key indicator of domestic consumer demand, fell 5.9 percent from a year earlier. Consumer spending accounts for more than half of Japan's gross domestic product. However the government also said on Friday that Japan's jobless rate in the month eased to 4.1 percent and that the core consumer price index excluding fresh food was unchanged from the previous year. Investors were also hopeful that the weaker yen would help Japanese manufacturers and big exporters despite reports on the slowdown.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index nose-dived 952.58 points to 9,203.32, a five-year low. That was its third-biggest drop in percentage terms and largest plunge since October 1987. The massive sell-off in Tokyo follows a plunge on Wall Street Tuesday, when the Dow Jones industrial average lost more than 5 percent despite steps by the Federal Reserve to reinvigorate dormant credit markets. The Nikkei index has lost a staggering 24 percent in the last two weeks. Among biggest losers, Toyota Motor Corp. plunged almost 12 percent to 3,280 yen on media reports that Japan's top automaker's operating profit would fall 40 percent this fiscal year through March due to sluggish demand in the U.S. market. Toyota's rival, Nissan Motor Co., also dropped 9.9 percent, to 501 yen. Honda Motor Co. lost 10.31 percent to 2,305 yen.

Japanese/English The financial turmoil experienced in Asia appears to be continuing into the new year. The crisis was sparked in late 1997 by the sharp devaluation of several Southeast Asian currencies. The Thai baht plunged to a record low on Monday in the first day of domestic trading of 1998, passing the milestone of 50 baht to the U-S dollar. Dealers said the decline was triggered by a fall in other regional currencies on Friday. And in Japan, stocks fell on the first trading day when investors back from their weeklong holiday dumped shares amid fear of further business failures. In an annual New Year's rite, Tokyo stock exchange officials and brokerage employees gathered on the trading floor to welcome the first day of trading in 1998 with short, sharp bursts of coordinated hand-clapping. Many of the women present wore colourful kimonos to the ceremony, which was held before the start of trading. Japan's stock market has been shaken by a recent string of corporate failures, including the collapse of "Big Four" broker Yamaichi Securities Co. in November and major food company Toshoku Ltd. last month. These and other high profile failures contributed to the Nikkei average's 21 percent, decline in 1997. The Chairman of the Exchange called for sound fiscal reporting and responsibility by corporate Japan in his New Year message. SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) 'We strongly expect that the related industries also hold the spirit of self discipline and they make further effort to keep the healthy state of management.' SUPER CAPTION: Mitsuhide Yamaguchi, Chairman, Tokyo Stock Exchange Outside protesters handed out pamphlets to stock exchange workers. The protesters were calling for corporate Japan to clean up its act by stopping the paying off of racketeers. The benchmark Nikkei 225 Stock Average sank 301.90 points, or 1.98 percent, to 15,258.74 in an abbreviated half-day of trading. Full-day trading will resume on Tuesday. A loss on the first day of trading has long been considered an ill omen. Traditionally, many dealers have stepped in to push up the market at the outset of trading. But no such moves were evident on Monday. Analysts expect the economy to continue its downward trend until the Autumn when corporate Japan finalises its restructuring to a more streamlined internationally competitive system. SOUNDBITE: (English) 'Basically the market is going to focus on the fundamentals, and the fundamentals of the Japanese economy - is it going up or is it going down and it looks as over the next six months the economy will fall into recession and as such the Stock Market outlook is not very rosy.' SUPER CAPTION: Jesper Koll, Vice President JP Morgan Securities Asia Koll predicts the yen could weaken to 140 or 145 as the Japanese economy slides toward recession. Meanwhile the U-S dollar was sharply higher against the Japanese currency compared to its level in Tokyo last Tuesday. But it slipped from late Friday in New York. Traders said the U-S dollar has been buoyed by worries over the health of Japan's financial system, yet subjected to bouts of profit-taking by Japanese exporters and speculators.
