  • Tokyo Nikkei index falls as economic worries presist

    Stocks in Asia plunge as global worries deepen amid a collapse in commodity prices that has pushed oil to a 12-year low. Tokyo's benchmark Nikkei index fell two point six percent in early trade. The index has lost around 12 percent of its value since the start of the year. World investors are concerned about the troubled Chinese economy as well, which is a key driver of global growth. Shanghai and Hong Kong stocks also sank in early trade. U-S markets on Friday saw heavy losses with the Dow Jones finishing down nearly two point four percent. On Monday, Brent crude oil briefly sank to as low as 27 dollars and 70 cents a barrel. West Texas Intermediate crude also slumped to 28 dollars and 82 cents.

    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 benchmark Nikkei Stock Average fell nearly 30 points to its lowest close so far this year.

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.

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 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.

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.

Natural Sound Trading was mixed on the Tokyo stock market on Monday as doubts lingered over the health of Japan's economy and financial system. The benchmark Nikkei Stock Average fell nearly 30 points to its lowest close so far this year. Shares were pushed down by fears that more financial sector companies could fold in the early part of 1998 - following the recent collapse of sector giant Yamaichi Securities. The yen finished trading marginally higher against the U-S dollar. On the close of trading last Friday, the Nikkei Stock Average had lost more than three per cent of its value. 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.

English/Nat Tokyo's Nikkei index tumbled to its lowest close in more than two years on Monday, after worries over the New York and Hong Kong stock markets. The benchmark 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average lost 325.38 points, or 1.87 percent. Brokers believe the downturn was sparked by a hefty fall in New York on Friday and another poor performance in Hong Kong early on Monday. Tokyo share prices tumbled on Monday, dashing hopes of a quick recovery in the Asian markets. The Nikkei closed at 17,038.36 points - its lowest level since August 14, 1995, when the index finished at 16,916.57. The TOPIX, the Tokyo Stock Price Index of all issues listed on the first section, fell 19.24 points, or 1.44 percent, to 1,312.45. The TOPIX had closed down 4.19 points, or 0.31 percent, on Friday. The U-S dollar climbed slightly against the yen. The plunge was partly in reaction to Friday's fall on Wall Street, where the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 132 points after fluctuating wildly, and reflecting fears about the possible impact of Asian economic problems on U-S companies. SOUNDBITE:(English) "On the external side, of course, the fall in New York on Friday had a negative impact and the instability and turmoil in Southeast Asia, especially in Hong Kong market is a very negative fact for the Japanese market." SUPER CAPTION: Mineko Sasaki-Smith, Chief economist, CS First Boston Expectations that a downturn in the U-S market could signal lower profits for major Japanese exporters hurt Sony Corporation and other blue-chip stocks in Tokyo. Economists also pointed to sluggish capital investment, and slow consumer spending in Japan. SOUNDBITE:(English) "And of course capital investment is not going to be growing as rapidly as people initially thought. The stock market's fall and weakening private consumption is beginning to have some impact on that. Production has been weak and of course we know that public spending and public investment as well as housing will continue to be very weak, so that pretty much leaves the exports, the net exports." SUPER CAPTION: Mineko Sasaki-Smith, Chief economist, CS First Boston Hong Kong's performance was another major factor in the Nikkei's poor showing. Hong Kong share prices tumbled sharply on Monday on overseas weakness and currency jitters. Relentless selling further battered Hong Kong stocks in afternoon trade on Monday. Trading wiped out gains made on Friday as investors seized the opportunity to unload more stock. Prices slid as soon as trading resumed after the midday break, with the Hang Seng Index hitting the day's low of 10,377 before recovering to 10,467, down 677 points, or 6.08 percent. Last week, Hong Kong stocks fell after authorities raised interest rates to ward off a speculative attack against its currency.

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.

English/Nat The Japanese stock market closed on a twelve year low on Thursday, falling nearly 2 percent to 13,197.12 -- its lowest close since February, 1986. Traders were alarmed by the latest report on business sentiment - the Tankan - which showed confidence at its lowest level for three-and -a-half years. The manufacturing sector took a beating on the Tokyo stock exchange Thursday following the early morning release of a key business confidence survey. The Bank of Japan's quarterly Tankan survey on business sentiment showed levels of confidence at record lows. The benchmark Nikkei Stock Average of 225 selected issues fell 209.27 points, or 1.56 percent, to 13,197.12 at the close - the lowest since February 1986. On the Tokyo foreign exchange market, the dollar traded moderately higher against the yen in reaction to the survey. . It rose to 136.66 yen in late trading, up 0.94 yen from late Wednesday in Tokyo. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I have to say I think a lot of people have kind of given up on Japan for the time being. They've put it in the ice age and they're waiting for it to thaw out. But I think that until the financial system really gets fixed I think a lot of people are still very, very concerned about Japan. And I think such concern is well warranted." SUPER CAPTION: Michael J. Naldrett, Dresdner Kleinwort Benson Japan is stuck in its worst recession in half a century, its economy dragged down by massive bad loans in its financial sector and sales dampened by the Asian currency crisis. The Tankan business confidence survey indicates that companies expect their earnings and financing to worsen further. Small and medium business in Japan is growing increasingly frustrated at the Obuchi government for being slow to inject public money into the economy.

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.

SOUNDBITE (English) Francis Lun, General Manager, Fulbright Securities: "The optimism over China helped push up A shares, and also helped drive up the H shares today. So, H shares slightly up today, in contrast with the local blue-chips, notably HSBC, and the strength of the H shares actually helped soften the impact of HSBC, so the market is only down about one hundred points, not two or three hundred points, thanks to the H shares." 16. Wide pan of Hong Kong Stock Exchange trading floor STORYLINE: Japan's benchmark Nikkei index closed at a 26-year low on Monday, amid deepening anxiety that economies in the US and elsewhere will take far longer to emerge from recession. The Nikkei 225 stock average lost 87.07 points, or 1.2 percent, to close at 7,086.03 - the lowest since 6 October 1982, when the index finished at 6,974.35. The broader Topix index fell 1.5 percent to 710.53, also setting a quarter-century low. Tokyo's stock market dropped after the Ministry of Finance announced a record current account deficit in January that plunged into the red for the first time in 13 years. The ministry said the current account deficit was due to plummeting demand for Japanese exports and a deepening global downturn. The deficit stood at a record 172.8 (b) billion yen (1.8 (b) billion US dollars) in January, far bigger than the previous deficit record of 25.6 (b) billion yen in January 1996, the ministry said. Stocks in Hong Kong also dropped on Monday, with the benchmark Hang Seng Index falling 576.94 points, or 4.84 percent, to close at 11,344.58. Weighing on Hong Kong were steep falls in markets on the China mainland, where investors booked some profits after the government didn't announce new and bigger policies to stimulate the economy at an ongoing legislative meeting. Shanghai's benchmark plummeted 3.4 percent. However, one analyst said that investors were still optimistic about China's economy, which meant that H shares - the shares of mainland companies listed on the Hong Kong exchange - helped prevent a further slide in the Hang Seng. "A shares" are shares of mainland Chinese companies listed within mainland China. Recent losses in Asian markets, while somewhat tame compared to those in the West, have still been severe as investors ratchet down their expectation for global growth in the face of abysmal economic data and signs of ongoing struggles at banks and major international firms.

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.
