Gold inches up as dollar eases, Fed rate hike prospects weigh

Image result for Gold inches up as dollar eases, Fed rate hike prospects weigh(Reuters) – Gold rose on Tuesday as the dollar eased from nine-month highs but an increasing probability of a U.S. interest rate hike kept a lid on prices.

The metal is highly sensitive to rising rates, which lift the opportunity cost of holding non-yielding assets while boosting the dollar.

Spot gold was up 0.4 percent at $1,269.05 an ounce at 0915 GMT. It has traded in a narrow $6.60 per ounce range for the past five sessions.

The dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of currencies, slipped 0.1 percent to 98.68, after hitting a nine-month high on Monday.

U.S. gold futures were up 0.4 percent at $1,267 an ounce.

“What has been interesting in gold recently has been the rise in the dollar but we seem to have found a new level for the dollar and so you see gold stabilising,” Danske Bank senior analyst Jens Pedersen said.

“We need to monitor economic data ahead of the Fed’s decision because it’s an ongoing battle between the hawks and the doves right now and also how to interpret the data.”

Chicago Fed President, Charles Evans, said on Monday the U.S. central bank will raise its policy rate three more times by the end of next year, if inflation expectations and the labour market continue to improve.

A Markit survey of U.S. manufacturing climbed to a one-year top of 53.2, while business activity in Europe expanded at the fastest pace this year so far in October.

In technicals, support for gold appears to be between $1,250 and $1,260, which restricts downside moves, MKS Pamp said in a note.

“With the market pricing in a 70 percent chance of a U.S. rate rise this December it is difficult to see the yellow metal pulling too far away from these levels over the short term,” the precious metals trader added.

Silver was up 0.9 percent at $17.71 an ounce. It touched a more than two-week high of $17.88 in the previous session.

Platinum was up about 1.5 percent at $950.75 an ounce, while palladium was up 1.2 percent at $638.50.

ChemChina ready for concessions to clinch delayed Syngenta deal in 2017 – source

Image result for ChemChina ready for concessions to clinch delayed Syngenta deal in 2017 - sourceBEIJING/ZURICH (Reuters) – State-owned Chinese chemicals group ChemChina is ready to offer more concessions to win European Union antitrust approval for its $43 billion bid for Swiss pesticide and seed group Syngenta, a source with direct knowledge of the process said.

Clinching China’s biggest-ever foreign acquisition is taking longer than planned amid a flurry of deals in the agriculture sector that Syngenta, the world’s biggest pesticides maker, said on Tuesday had swamped competition watchdogs.

Syngenta expects the transaction to close around the end of March 2017, rather than this year as first planned, but insisted it would go ahead despite increased scrutiny by watchdogs gauging the impact of big deals on farmers and consumers.

Syngenta’s deal with ChemChina is one of two under EU scrutiny, while another mega deal involving Bayer and Monsanto is expected to land on the regulator’s desk in coming months.

Bayer and Monsanto have not formally requested EU approval but the European Commission has to consider this deal as well when assessing the ChemChina and Syngenta linkup, and another deal involving DuPont and Dow Chemical, to take into account the changing landscape, said an EU official.

Syngenta stock plunged more than 9 percent on Monday after a European Commission spokesman said the companies had not offered concessions to get the deal through, raising concerns about the likelihood of a longer, full investigation.

ChemChina submitted a proposal to the Commission in September, including a plan to divest some $20 million worth of assets from its agrichemical subsidiary Adama Agricultural Solutions, the Beijing-based source told Reuters.

But the Commission raised “a more detailed menu of possible remedies” last week, said the source, who declined to be identified because he was not authorised to speak to the media.

ChemChina is ready to cooperate fully with the Commission and come up with a satisfactory solution, the source added.

A ChemChina spokesman was not immediately available.

The Commission sometimes opens a full investigation to get a better understanding of complex takeovers, whereby some are eventually cleared with no or minor concessions, though this is probably not the case for ChemChina because of the wave of consolidation moves and the diverse interests involved.


Regulatory scrutiny over the ChemChina-Syngenta deal comes as global agricultural chemicals makers bulk up to better compete with each other.

Dow Chemical and DuPont plan a $130 billion merger, while Bayer aims to buy Monsanto for $66 billion.

Syngenta Chief Executive Erik Fyrwald told Reuters he expected the EU anti-trust watchdog to take its regulatory review of the ChemChina deal to a second phase once the Oct. 28 deadline for fast-track approval passes.

“I think it is likely and we are expecting it, but it is not certain,” Fyrwald said. “The process was going along and then on Sept. 14 … the Bayer and Monsanto deal was announced, since then in both the U.S. and the EU there has been a very large escalation in data requests and questions.”

The Commission declined comment.

Fyrwald dismissed suggestions that the deal could be complicated by a possible merger of ChemChina and Sinochem.

“We talk to ChemChina regularly on a range of issues … and they have repeatedly assured us that they are not in any discussions about merging with Sinochem,” he said.

Fyrwald declined to comment on the regulatory impact of the other two big deals in the pipeline. “But I can tell you that the regulators are taking a very close look at everything.”

Syngenta reported third-quarter sales of $2.5 billion, down 3 percent year-on-year at constant exchange rates. The average forecast from analysts polled by Reuters was for sales to ease 0.5 percent.

Syngenta stock rose 1.8 percent to 404.70 Swiss francs by 0930 GMT, still well below the ChemChina offer price of $465 in cash per share plus a 5 Swiss franc special dividend, worth a total of around 467 francs.

Liberum analysts, who rate Syngenta “buy”, valued Syngenta at 357 francs per share should the deal not go through. ChemChina’s offer also includes a break fee of $3 billion, or 32 francs per share, for an overall fair value of 389 francs, they wrote in a note.

Nordea chairman says merger with ABN Amro would create “fine bank”

Members of the media surround Bjorn Wahlroos as he arrives at a meeting in Helsinki, Finland April 7, 2016. REUTERS/Vesa Moilanen/Lehtikuva/FilesHELSINKI (Reuters) – A merger between Sweden’s Nordea and Dutch state-owned lender ABN Amro would make “a pretty fine bank,” and early talks may continue after a March 2017 election in the Netherlands, Nordea chairman Bjorn Wahlroos said on Saturday.

In an interview with Finnish public broadcaster YLE, Wahlroos confirmed he had recently discussed a possible merger with representatives from the Dutch finance ministry and the Netherlands Financial Investments (NLFI), the state agency that holds a majority of ABN shares.

“It was a very preliminary contact … at the moment it looks like (talks) will not go forward until the Dutch parliamentary election,” Wahlroos said, referring to a March 2017 general election.

“I believe it is quite clear that due to the elections, there is not much enthusiasm right now for a larger project in the government level,” he added.

Following local media reports on Nordea’s approach earlier this month, ABN and the Dutch government said they were not looking for a buyer.

Wahlroos, who is also chairman at financial holding company Sampo and paper maker UPM-Kymmene, said Nordea was keen to expand its operations after investing more than one billion euros in information technology infrastructure.

He added that ABN would “fit together well” with Nordea, the Nordic region’s largest bank.

“The Netherlands is a very Scandinavian-type of country in many ways, open, liberal, market-oriented… (the combined bank) would be a pretty fine bank.”

Wahlroos said he had also suggested to the Dutch that the combined company’s headquarters could move from Sweden to the Netherlands.

Panel fails to finalise rates for GST

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – A council of finance ministers from India’s union and state governments on Wednesday failed to finalise the main rate of the goods and services tax and will again meet next month, raising concerns that the new sales tax might miss April’s deadline.

Union and state finance officials met for two days in New Delhi to resolve their differences over the rates as well as the administration of the tax. They will again meet on Nov. 3-4.

While the meetings could not break the deadlock, the contours of the discussions suggested India might end up with a tax structure with multiple rates.

Experts say that the best taxes have to be low, flat rates and few exemptions and warn that the proposed GST for India may – due to its relative complexity – deter compliance in a country where many businesses are skilled at minimising their taxes.

“Having more rates will complicate the situation,” said M.S. Mani, senior director at Deloitte Haskins & Sells LLP, adding uniform rate in states would simplify current tax structure.

The new tax is a signature reform of Prime Minister Narendra Modi that is aimed at making India an investor friendly destination. The measure would harmonise a slew of federal and state levies.

Supporters say the rollout of the new tax would boost the country’s economic growth by as much as 70 basis points. But a compromise-ridden tax threatens to rob any potential gains.

At the meeting, some states sought to impose a surcharge of tax on luxury products such as sparkling water and tobacco products to keep lower rates on essential food items, Kerala Finance Minister Thomas Issac told reporters.

But the union government did not support the proposal, saying it would have a cascading impact, a senior Finance Ministry official told reporters after the meeting.

The ministry has proposed four tax rates, with the highest at 26 percent for about 20-25 percent of taxable items. Other slabs included 12 percent for food and fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG), and 4 percent for precious metals like gold.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, however, remained optimistic that the November meeting would resolve the differences, paving the way for the tax’s implementation from April 1.

To hit that timeline, union and state lawmakers need to pass key bills in this calendar year, and even then there will be a race against time to set up IT systems and ensure millions of businesses are ready to file returns online.

U.S. crude hits 15-month highs after big drawdown

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) said crude stocks fell 5.2 million barrels in the week ended Oct. 14. Analysts polled by Reuters had expected the EIA to report a crude build of 2.7 million barrels. [EIA/S]

U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude’s front-month contract rose $1.39, or 2.7 percent, to $51.68 a barrel by 11:26 a.m. EDT (1526 GMT). It hit $51.93 earlier, its highest since July 2015. WTI’s more active second-month hit 5-month highs.

Brent, the international benchmark for crude, was up $1.21, or 2.3 percent, to $52.89 per barrel. It earlier hit$53.14.

It is common for crude stocks to build at this time of year as refineries go into maintenance, turning out less gasoline and other fuel products. Refinery runs have fallen since the start of September, reaching 88 percent of capacity last week.

The EIA data also cited lower crude imports as a factor for the inventory drop. U.S. crude imports slid by 912,000 barrels per day last week to 6.47 million bpd, the lowest since November 2015.

“The report was bullish due to the large drop in crude oil inventories,” said John Kilduff, partner at New York energy hedge fund Again Capital.

Still, a surprisingly large build of 2.5 million barrels in gasoline stocks that contrasted with analysts’ expectations for a 1.3 million-barrel drop meant a less rosy outlook for oil for some.

“So, while the headline number was bullish, we wouldn’t call it extremely bullish given the large gasoline build,” said Tariq Zahir, a trader in timespreads of WTI at Tyche Capital Advisors in New York.

Also supporting oil was evidence of declining production in China and optimism that the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries will secure an output cut at its meeting next month.

Oil prices have risen more than 15 percent over the past three weeks after OPEC announced plans to remove some 700,000 barrels per day of production from a global crude glut of 1.0 million-1.5 million bpd estimated by analysts.

Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said on Wednesday he was planning to meet his Saudi Arabia counterpart this weekend to discuss coordination of actions to support the market. OPEC itself meets Nov. 30 to finalize the output cuts.

Singapore Airlines bans Samsung Galaxy Note 7 on its flights

SINGAPORE (Reuters) – Singapore Airlines said on Saturday it has banned Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 mobile phones from all its flights and any passenger carrying one will not be allowed to board its planes.

The U.S. Department of Transportation has issued an emergency order banning the devices from aircraft in the United States as of Saturday at noon EDT (1600 GMT).

Samsung Electronics Co Ltd has recalled its flagship Galaxy Note 7 smartphones worldwide because of incidents of the phones emitting smoke or catching fire, dealing a huge blow to the company’s reputation.

Singapore Airlines said on its Facebook page that “the Galaxy Note 7 smartphone will be prohibited from being brought on board all our flights in person, in carry-on baggage or checked-in baggage with effect from 16 October.”

India’s Essar agrees to sell oil arm to Rosneft-led group

By Douglas Busvine and Denis Pinchuk

GOA, India (Reuters) – India’s debt-laden Essar Group confirmed on Saturday that it has agreed to sell a 98 percent interest in its Essar Oil unit to a consortium led by Russia’s Rosneft, giving the energy giant a gateway into the world’s fastest growing fuel market.

The deal will see Rosneft, along with its partners Trafigura and United Capital Partners (UCP), pay $10.9 billion for Essar’s refining and retail assets. Separately, $2 billion will be paid toward the acquisition of the Vadinar port in the western state of Gujarat, along with certain import and export facilities.

Sources familiar with the matter had told Reuters on Friday that a deal was imminent.

It will give Rosneft a 49 percent stake in Essar Oil, with 49 percent being split equally between Trafigura and UCP. The deal was carefully structured to avoid falling foul of western sanctions against Russia over its role in the Ukraine crisis.

“Rosneft will not get a controlling stake, partly because of these reasons (sanctions)”, Andrey Kostin, head of Russian lender VTB which advised Essar on the deal, told Reuters.

The deal helps Russia to deepen economic ties with India that stretch back to the Soviet era. The purchase is the biggest foreign acquisition ever in India and Russia’s largest outbound deal, according to Thomson Reuters data.

It was finalised after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Russian President Vladimir Putin met at a summit in the western state of Goa on Saturday.

The all-cash deal will give Rosneft and its partners control of Essar’s 20 million tonne refinery in Gujarat, and its retail fuel outlets in India, where growth for refined petroleum goods in the next five years is expected to be in the 5 percent to 7 percent range.

“Rosneft is entering one of the most promising and fast-growing world markets,” said its Chief Executive Igor Sechin in a statement, adding that the deal gives it “unique opportunities for synergies” with its existing assets.

Separately, Rosneft said it would use Venezuelan crude to supply the Vadinar refinery.

The closing of the transaction is conditional on receiving requisite regulatory approvals that are expected before the end of the first quarter of 2017.

The deal also reduces some of the pressure on Essar, which is controlled by the billionaire Ruia brothers. The group has a presence in oil and gas, steel, ports and power, and has been under pressure from its lenders to reduce its debt burden.

In parallel with the deal, Russian lender VTB said on Saturday it would lend Essar about $3.9 billion toward debt reconstruction.

Chanda Kochhar, chief executive of ICICI Bank Ltd – one of Essar’s top lenders – welcomed the deal, noting that it has been working closely with Essar to deleverage its stressed balance sheet.

With no rate hike, risks to economy up ‘appreciably,’ ex Fed advisor says

The Federal Reserve is “way, way” behind the curve with its lack of interest rate hikes so far this year, former Dallas Fed Advisor Danielle DiMartino Booth told CNBC on Wednesday.

The minutes from the Federal Open Market Committee’s meeting in September, released Wednesday, show a divided Fed. While it opted to leave rates unchanged, officials in favor of hiking are worried that waiting too long could send the country into recession.

“The risks have obviously gone up appreciably,” Booth said in an interview with CNBC’s “Power Lunch.”

The concern is that if the Fed waits too long, it could be forced to raise rates aggressively to slow the economy.

Rate hike

The central bank has left the door open for a rate hike before the end of the year. It meets again in November and December.

However, Lindsey Piegza, chief economist for Stifel, Nicolaus & Co., believes there is no incentive for the Fed to raise rates thanks to slow growth, nonexistent inflation, negative business investment and the consumer under pressure with declining income.

“Certainly they may have to raise rates faster if we turn the corner into 2017 or beyond, but the risk of raising rates too fast more than offsets the risk of raising them too slow at this point,” Piegza told “Power Lunch.”

Traders expect the Fed to hike in December, although probability is less than 60 percent. Many don’t expect it to happen in November because there is no press conference scheduled afterward and it is happening right before the presidential election.

And if the markets react violently to the election, Booth doesn’t think the Fed will raise at all in 2016.

“They won’t move a hair in December if there’s disruption. It’s not their M.O.,” she said.

Piegza argued any rate increase will be based on the data, not politics. “It’s not about the election being six days later. It’s not about the outcome of the election or the market’s reaction to the election,” she said. “It’s about how the U.S. economy is evolving and right now we are subpar growth, declining income, declining gains in employment, declining gains in manufacturing, inflation is still sluggishly low.”

Sorry, Donald Trump, but the Fed isn’t talking politics

Janet Yellen

For all the charges about how politicized the Federal Reserve has supposedly become, the November election apparently was not a discussion topic during the central bank’s September meeting.

Fed watchers have been speculating that it doesn’t want to hike rates ahead of the presidential election. Republican nominee Donald Trumphas alleged that the Fed is holding off because it doesn’t want to disrupt the economy and ruin Hillary Clinton’s chances of getting elected.

Trump told CNBC in September that Fed Chair Janet Yellen should be “ashamed” by her actions as head of the U.S. central bank, without providing evidence of his allegations.

But a summary of the September FOMC gathering produced no references to the race. Of course, the meeting minutes document does not constitute a transcript, but an otherwise detailed document did not even make passing reference to the campaign.

Questioned at the post-meeting news conference about whether the Fed was holding off because of the election, Yellen asserted that no political discussions have taken place. Moreover, she said that when the transcript is released in five years, it will not reflect any talk of the election.

Fed minutes: Hawks fear recession in rate hike delay  12 Hours Ago | 04:01

“I can emphatically say that partisan politics plays no role in our decisions,” Yellen told reporters.

Even a benign interpretation has been that the Fed won’t hike in November because it doesn’t want to disrupt the election in either direction. The Federal Open Market Committee meeting concludes Nov. 2, with the election just six days later. Traders give just an 11.4 percent chance of a move at the meeting.

The only reference to anything political at the September meeting was talk of the June Brexit, in which Britons voted to leave the European Union. Despite dire predictions, the vote “apparently exerted less drag on economic activity than previously anticipated by many analysts,” the minutes noted.
