    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.

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.

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 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.

English/Nat Japan's benchmark stock index rose on Thursday to its highest closing level so far this year on continued buying by foreign investors. The benchmark 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average gained 1-point-77 per cent, closing at 16,846-point-69. On Wednesday, the average had closed up by point-45 per cent, its previous highest close this year. Analysts hailed the market climb, but cautioned investors against seeing an early turnaround in the Japanese economy. Tokyo share prices started lower on profit-taking following recent gains. But the market later turned into positive territory with active buying of steel and information-related stocks. That left the Nikkei Stock Average up 292-point-19 points, a 1-point-77 per cent climb that was the highest so far this year. On Wednesday, the average closed up 74-point-79 points, to 16,554-point-50, this year's previous record. Analysts said the market was also buoyed by an overnight surge in New York, and cautioned against seeing the boost as the start of a long term trend. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I'd be very surprised if it goes on for much longer, the simple reason being that it's difficult to see any sustained economic growth in Japan. There is some good news here right now, but it may only relate to restructuring of the economy. Now that's a good thing in the long term context, but it also can be very painful in terms of the short term dynamics of the economy. And my sense is that Japanese economic growth will remain negative for another couple of years at least." SUPER CAPTION: Russel Jones, Chief Economist, Lehman Brothers Meanwhile the Bank of Japan has announced that the domestic wholesale price index for March was the lowest since July 1979. While prices of agricultural, livestock and fishery products increased, those of chemicals, electrical machinery, and paper products fell. A fall in petroleum and coal product prices also contributed to the drop in the domestic price index. The continued decline in prices has underscored increasing deflationary pressure in Japan, with domestic wholesale prices effectively dropping for the seventh consecutive fiscal year. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I'd be very surprised if wholesale prices and for that matter consumer prices started to increase in a sustained way for the foreseeable future. There's just too much excess capacity around in the Japanese economy. There's too little pricing power for companies, and economic policy at this stage is not really expansionary enough to turn around those trends." SUPER CAPTION: Russel Jones, Chief Economist, Lehman Brothers The U-S dollar advanced against the yen during Thursday's trading. The dollar bought 121-point-18 yen at mid-afternoon, up point-40 yen from late Wednesday in Tokyo but below its late New York level of 121-point-35 overnight.

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.

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 closed at 20-thousand-one-hundred-and-33-point-9 on Wednesday,... just hours after news broke that Japan had posted its first trade surplus in three years last month... on the back of the weak yen and low oil prices. Investors are expecting robust earnings figures from Japanese companies this year for similar reasons at even a better rate than their Western rivals... and potentially producing double-digit profit increases. Japan′s central bank is expected to further ease its monetary policy... at its monthly meeting next week,... which also boosted the bullish market.

English/Nat Japanese stocks finished higher on Friday on buying by foreign and domestic investors, rebounding sharply from the previous day's decline. The dollar slipped against the yen. The benchmark 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average rose 124.50 points, or 0.74 percent, closing the week at 16-thousand 851 point 58 points. On Thursday, the average closed down 37.60 points, or 0.22 percent. The dollar bought 118.28 yen at mid afternoon, down 0.52 yen from late on Thursday in Tokyo and also below its late New York level of 118.83 yen overnight. Traders said share prices advanced on continued active buying from foreign and individual investors who have grown more optimistic about the economic outlook for Japan and other Asian economies. Traders also said supporting the market was the expectation that public and pension funds were allocating new funds to the stock market. The market, however, reduced some of its early gains on profit-taking in high-technology sectors. An overnight rally on Wall Street also encouraged investors in Tokyo. Most Asian stock markets surged this week with Hong Kong blue chips hitting an 18-month high on Thursday. Some analysts say a main reason for the recovery in Asian markets is Japan giving a real sign of economic recovery. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Basically I'm very optimistic on Japan we're seeing a full blown recovery because Japan has solved its banking problems and is reflating the economy. And that in the short term good for Asia - but Asia has not solved its own banking problems and that's why the Asian recovery is only temporary, domestic demand can not fully recover in Asia its export demand that will benefit from Japan but they still have problems with the banking system, loan growth is still very weak in Indonesia, in Thailand and Korea." SUPER CAPTION: Richard Werner, Chief Economist, Profit Research Center So, the surge of Asian stock could be a short term. Analysts say to attain a self-sustained recovery in Asia, the Asian countries have to conduct drastic reforms such as reform of their banking systems.

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.

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.

Natural Sound Japan's main stock index fell on Monday as concerns about the earnings of high-technology companies weighed down the market. The benchmark 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average lost 177.37 points, or 1.05 percent, to close the day at 16,674.21. On Friday, the index gained 124.50 points, or 0.74 percent. The poor performance on Friday in America's Nasdaq index, which includes many high-technology shares, triggered selling of Japanese hi-tech issues on Monday. The Nasdaq closed down 4.20 percent for the week on Friday. Japanese precision machinery and electronic share prices have languished since U-S-based companies Compaq and Intel warned last week that their earnings may not be as strong as expected. The U-S dollar's dip from its levels late last week has exacerbated those worries, as a weak U-S currency makes Japanese exporters' products more expensive overseas and reduces the value of repatriated earnings. The broader Tokyo Stock Price Index of all issues listed on the exchange's first section was down 10.34 points, or 0.77 percent, to 1,332.69. The TOPIX rose 5.10 points, or 0.38 percent, on Friday. In currency dealings, dollar-supportive comments by Japanese monetary authorities pushed the dollar higher than its levels in New York on Friday. The dollar bought 118.18 yen, down 0.04 from late Friday in Tokyo but above its late New York level of 118.02 yen on Friday.

Natural Sound The U-S dollar edged lower against the yen in subdued trading in Tokyo on Wednesday. The benchmark 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average gained 42.63 points, or 0.32 per cent, closing at 13,403.60 points. The yen had risen sharply against the dollar the previous day, leading to massive intervention by the Bank of Japan (B-O-J) to stem the Japanese currency's rise. The Bank of Japan's yen-selling intervention was the first since February 1996. It followed growing anxiety over the yen's recent rally. Traders said the central bank spent between 1 -2 (b) billion U-S dollars in foreign exchange markets as it dumped yen holdings. But the dollar, after sliding from a high of more than 147 yen in August to a 28-month low on Monday, rose more than 4 yen on Tuesday - on the back of the surprise intervention. On the Tokyo Stock Exchange on Wednesday, share prices slipped after an overnight drop on Wall Street. There the Dow Jones industrial average finished at 9,474.68, down 145.21 points. But later, the market turned mixed - as investors remained cautious about the recent volatility in foreign exchange movements. Despite the Nikkei's gains, declines outnumbered advances 650 to 459, with 201 issues unchanged. The broader Tokyo Stock Price Index of all issues listed on the first section rose 1.15 points, or 0.11 per cent, to 1,057.08. The TOPIX (the measure of all First Section issues) lost 1.41 points, or 0.13 per cent, the previous day. Meanwhile, the yield on the benchmark No. 203 10-year Japanese government bond fell to 1.730 per cent from Tuesday's finish of 1.770 per cent. This drove its price up to 100.56 yen from 100.24 yen. A stronger yen tends to make Japanese exports more expensive abroad and cuts into profits earned overseas. Lower earnings by exporters could hamper efforts to jump-start Japan's recession-plagued economy.

English/Nat The dollar rose to its highest level against the yen in more than two months on Monday, following a larger than expected drop in Japan's March trade surplus. Japanese stocks also fell sharply. The benchmark Nikkei Stock Average shed 2.32 percent at the end of the days trading. However, the Japanese finance ministry also announced that the country's current account surplus is looking rosier - climbing 17.6 percent to a non-seasonally adjusted 15.227(t) trillion yen, or 124 (b) billion U-S dollars, for the 1998 fiscal year. Financial experts say the new figures show Japanese investors are putting their money to work overseas. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The Japanese Yen has been extremely stable and range bound, 118 to 122 for the last three months. Now, things are changing. Most importantly, you find that U-S bond yields have started to rise and Japanese bond yields have dropped further. So, it's becoming extremely attractive for Japanese investors to put the money at work overseas." SUPER CAPTION:Jesper Koll, Economist SOUNDBITE: (English) "The key issue today is that Japan's external surplus was less than expected by market forecasters. Yes, Japanese imports were very weak and that indicates that the economy here at home is still rather weak. But more important, that you will find is that the excessive strength of Yen is indeed weakening Japanese exports and overall the trade and current account surplus is starting to come down."

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.
