Hong Kong Stocks Fail to Lure JPMorgan With Worst Developed Drop

Written By PT Kontak perkasa Futures Yogyakarta on Friday, June 28, 2013 | 1:50 PM

Bloomberg, (28/6) - Hong Kong stocks are set for the biggest decline among developed markets this half as concern about China’s economy drives valuations 22 percent below the five-year average.

The Hang Seng Index tumbled 9.8 percent in 2013, trailing the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index by the most in 15 years and wiping more than $145 billion from the value of shares. The losses dragged the gauge’s valuation to 9.7 times estimates earnings, compared with a five-year average of 12.5, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

JPMorgan Asset Management and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. say Hong Kong stocks may get even cheaper as a manufacturing slowdown in China collides with the worst cash shortage in a decade. The waning outlook for the world’s second-biggest economy is exacerbating declines spurred by the U.S. Federal Reserve’s plan to dial back unprecedented stimulus measures.

Harga minyak beranjak ke bawah US$ 97 per barel

NEW YORK. Harga minyak mentah di bursa berjangka Amerika Serikat (A) beranjak menuju ke bawah harga US$ 97 per barel, pada hari Jumat ini (27/6). Harga minyak turun akibat penguatan nilai tukar dolar AS.

Sementara itu, harga minyak mentah Brent turun 34 sen menjadi US$ 102,48 per barel. Meskipun turun, harga minyak Brent naik untuk yang ketiga ketiga dalam empat pekan.

Menurut Reuters, penurunan harga minyak sebagian besar didorong oleh kekhawatiran atas rencana pembatasan stimulus AS serta adanya perlambatan ekonomi di China.

Reuters (25/6) - Hong Kong shares may start weaker on Tuesday as investors brace for the first of two open market operations in the mainland to gauge the extent of the cash crunch that has raised fears of a banking crisis.

China shares suffered their worst daily loss in almost four years on Monday, with financials hammered on fears that the central bank would keep money tight and economic growth could slow sharply.

The Hang Seng Index dropped on Monday for a fourth straight day, ending down 2.2 percent at 19,814 points. The China Enterprises Index of the top Chinese listings in Hong Kong sank 3.2 percent to its lowest since October 2011.

Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta

Written By PT Kontak perkasa Futures Yogyakarta on Monday, June 24, 2013 | 11:51 AM

Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta adalah Daerah Istimewa setingkat provinsi di Indonesia yang merupakan peleburan Negara Kesultanan Yogyakarta dan Negara Kadipaten Paku Alaman. Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta yang terletak di bagian selatan Pulau Jawa bagian tengah dan berbatasan dengan Provinsi Jawa Tengah dan Samudera Hindia. Daerah Istimewa yang memiliki luas 3.185,80 km2 ini terdiri atas satu kota dan empat kabupaten, yang terbagi lagi menjadi 78 kecamatan dan 438 desa/kelurahan. Menurut sensus penduduk 2010 memiliki jumlah penduduk 3.452.390 jiwa dengan proporsi 1.705.404 laki-laki dan 1.746.986 perempuan, serta memiliki kepadatan penduduk sebesar 1.084 jiwa per km2.

Penyebutan nomenklatur Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta yang terlalu panjang menyebabkan sering terjadinya penyingkatan nomenkaltur menjadi DI Yogyakarta atau DIY. Daerah Istimewa ini sering diidentikkan dengan Kota Yogyakarta sehingga secara kurang tepat disebut dengan Jogja, Yogya, Yogyakarta, Jogjakarta. Walaupun memiliki luas terkecil ke dua setelah Provinsi DKI Jakarta, Daerah Istimewa ini terkenal di tingkat nasional dan internasional. Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta menjadi tempat tujuan wisata andalan setelah Provinsi Bali. Selain itu Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta menjadi daerah terparah akibat bencana gempa pada tanggal 27 Mei 2006 dan erupsi Gunung Merapi pada medio Oktober-November 2010.

SEJARAH
Keraton Yogyakarta

Sebelum Indonesia merdeka, Yogyakarta merupakan daerah yang mempunyai pemerintahan sendiri atau disebut Zelfbestuurlandschappen/Daerah Swapraja, yaitu Kasultanan Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat dan Kadipaten Pakualaman. Kasultanan Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat didirikan oleh Pangeran Mangkubumi yang bergelar Sultan Hamengku Buwono I pada tahun 1755, sedangkan Kadipaten Pakualaman didirikan oleh Pangeran Notokusumo (saudara Sultan Hamengku Buwono II) yang bergelar Adipati Paku Alam I pada tahun 1813. Pemerintah Hindia Belanda mengakui Kasultanan dan Pakualaman sebagai kerajaan dengan hak mengatur rumah tangganya sendiri yang dinyatakan dalam kontrak politik. Kontrak politik yang terakhir Kasultanan tercantum dalam Staatsblaad 1941 Nomor 47, sedangkan kontrak politik Pakualaman dalam Staatsblaad 1941 Nomor 577. Eksistensi kedua kerajaan tersebut telah mendapat pengakuan dari dunia internasional, baik pada masa penjajahan Belanda, Inggris, maupun Jepang. Ketika Jepang meninggalkan Indonesia, kedua kerajaan tersebut telah siap menjadi sebuah negara sendiri yang merdeka, lengkap dengan sistem pemerintahannya (susunan asli), wilayah dan penduduknya.

Setelah Proklamasi Kemerdekaan Republik Indonesia (RI), Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono IX dan Sri Paku Alam VIII menyatakan kepada Presiden RI, bahwa Daerah Kasultanan Yogyakarta dan Daerah Pakualaman menjadi wilayah Negara RI, bergabung menjadi satu kesatuan yang dinyatakan sebagai Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta (DIY). Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono IX dan Sri Paku Alam VIII sebagai Kepala Daerah dan Wakil Kepala Daerah bertanggung jawab langsung kepada Presiden RI. Hal tersebut dinyatakan dalam:

1.  Piagam kedudukan Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono IX dan Sri Paku Alam VIII tertanggal 19 Agustus 1945 dari Presiden RI.
2.  Amanat Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono IX dan Sri Paku Alam VIII tertanggal 5 September 1945 (dibuat secara terpisah).
3.  Amanat Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono IX dan Sri Paku Alam VIII tertanggal 30 Oktober 1945 (dibuat dalam satu naskah).

Dalam perjalanan sejarah selanjutnya kedudukan DIY sebagai Daerah Otonom setingkat Provinsi sesuai dengan maksud pasal 18 Undang-undang Dasar 1945 (sebelum perubahan) diatur dengan Undang-undang Nomor 22 Tahun 1948 tentang Undang-undang Pokok Pemerintahan Daerah. Sebagai tindak lanjutnya kemudian Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta dibentuk dengan Undang-undang Nomor 3 Tahun 1950 tentang Pembentukan Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta Peraturan Pemerintah Nomor 31 Tahun 1950 sebagaimana telah diubah dan ditambah terakhir dengan Undang-undang Nomor 9 Tahun 1955 (Lembaran Negara Tahun 1959 Nomor 71, Tambahan Lembaran Negara Nomor 1819) yang sampai saat ini masih berlaku. Dalam undang-undang tersebut dinyatakan DIY meliputi Daerah Kasultanan Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat dan Daerah Kadipaten Pakualaman. Pada setiap undang-undang yang mengatur Pemerintahan Daerah, dinyatakan keistimewaan DIY tetap diakui, sebagaimana dinyatakan terakhir dalam Undang-undang Nomor 32 Tahun 2004.

Dalam sejarah perjuangan mempertahankan kemerdekaan Negara Kesatuan Republik Indonesia (NKRI), DIY mempunyai peranan yang penting. Terbukti pada tanggal 4 Januari 1946 sampai dengan tanggal 27 Desember 1949[8] pernah dijadikan sebagai Ibukota Negara Republik Indonesia. Tanggal 4 Januari inilah yang kemudian ditetapkan menjadi hari Yogyakarta Kota Republik pada tahun 2010. Pada saat ini Kasultanan Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat dipimpin oleh Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono X dan Kadipaten Pakualaman dipimpin oleh Sri Paku Alam IX, yang sekaligus menjabat sebagai Gubernur dan Wakil Gubernur DIY. Keduanya memainkan peran yang menentukan dalam memelihara nilai-nilai budaya dan adat istiadat Jawa dan merupakan pemersatu masyarakat Yogyakarta.
Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono X

GEOGRAFI
DIY terletak di bagian tengah-selatan Pulau Jawa, secara geografis terletak pada 7o3’-8o12’ Lintang Selatan dan 110o00’-110o50’ Bujur Timur. Berdasarkan bentang alam, wilayah DIY dapat dikelompokkan menjadi empat satuan fisiografi, yaitu satuan fisiografi Gunungapi Merapi, satuan fisiografi Pegunungan Selatan atau Pegunungan Seribu, satuan fisiografi Pegunungan Kulon Progo, dan satuan fisiografi Dataran Rendah.

Satuan fisiografi Gunungapi Merapi, yang terbentang mulai dari kerucut gunung api hingga dataran fluvial gunung api termasuk juga bentang lahan vulkanik, meliputi Sleman, Kota Yogyakarta dan sebagian Bantul. Daerah kerucut dan lereng gunung api merupakan daerah hutan lindung sebagai kawasan resapan air daerah bawahan. Satuan bentang alam ini terletak di Sleman bagian utara. Gunung Merapi yang merupakan gunungapi aktif dengan karakteristik khusus, mempunyai daya tarik sebagai objek penelitian, pendidikan, dan pariwisata.

Dollar Climbs to 2-Week High Versus Yen on Fed Tapering Outlook


Bloomberg (24/6) - The dollar rose to a two-week high versus the yen before data that may add to the case for the Federal Reserve to pare back bond purchases.

The U.S. currency strengthened ahead of reports tomorrow that will probably show orders for durable goods grew and house prices continued to recover. Fed Bank of Dallas President Richard Fisher will speak on monetary policy in London today.

The yen slumped against most major peers as Japan’s ruling coalition won a majority in Tokyo elections, signaling support for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Declines in the euro were tempered before the release of a German sentiment survey.

The greenback rose 0.7 percent to 98.61 yen as of 11:52 a.m. in Tokyo, the highest level since June 11. It gained 3.8 percent last week, the biggest jump since the five days ended Dec. 4, 2009. The U.S. currency added 0.2 percent to $1.3093 per euro, gaining for a fourth day, after earlier touching $1.3087, the most since June 6. The yen declined 0.5 percent to 129.07 per euro.

The Dollar Index, which Intercontinental Exchange Inc. uses to monitor the greenback against the currencies of six U.S. trade partners, rose 0.4 percent to 82.664 and reached 82.686 earlier, the highest level since June 5.

Gold inches up after biggest weekly fall in two years


Reuters, (24/6) -- Gold edged higher on Monday after a tumultuous week that saw prices drop the most in nearly two years on fears of an early end to the Federal Reserve's bond purchases and a cash crunch in China.

Spot gold gained 0.07 percent to $1,297.66 an ounce by 0018 GMT. It rose over 1 percent on Friday but recorded its worst weekly performance - down 7 percent - since September 2011.

Comex gold rose about $5 to $1,297.30.

Markets were roiled last week after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke laid out a strategy for the U.S. central bank to start scaling back its $85 billion monthly bond buying program.

St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank President James Bullard on Friday said neither the central bank's own economic growth forecasts nor its expectations for continued weak inflation supported a decision to dial back bond purchases.

China's central bank faced down the country's cash-hungry banks on Friday, letting interest rates again spike to extraordinary levels of some 25 percent for some banks as it stepped up the pressure to contain rampant informal lending.

Hedge funds and money managers slashed their bullish bets in gold futures and options for a second consecutive week to the lowest level in a month, a report by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission showed on Friday.

SPDR Gold Trust, the world's largest gold-backed exchange-traded fund, said its holdings fell 0.54 percent to 989.94 tonnes on Friday.

Gold Trade Most Bearish Since ’10 as Fed Spurs Drop: Commodities

Written By PT Kontak perkasa Futures Yogyakarta on Friday, June 21, 2013 | 10:54 AM

Bloomberg ~ Gold traders are the most bearish in 3 1/2 years after prices fell to the lowest since 2010 following Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke’s comments that the central bank may start curbing stimulus.

Fifteen analysts surveyed by Bloomberg expect prices to fall next week, with six bullish and five neutral, the largest proportion of bears since January 2010. The metal slumped below $1,300 an ounce for the first time since September 2010 yesterday. Investors sold 520.7 metric tons valued at about $21.7 billion from exchange-traded products this year.
 
Gold as much as doubled since 2008 as quantitative easing swelled the Fed’s balance sheet to a record $3.41 trillion. Bernanke said June 19 the central bank may start reducing the $85 billion in monthly debt buying this year and end the program in 2014. Bullion is heading for its first annual drop since 2000 after some investors lost faith in the metal as a store of value.

“The comments by the Fed are really the last signal for the soft hands that the bull market in gold is ending,” said Frederique Dubrion, the Geneva-based president and chief investment officer of Blue Star Advisors SA, which manages metals and energy assets. “One of the appeals of gold, especially since 2008, was because of quantitative easing. That they are going to slow down the pace of purchasing is not a good signal for gold.”

Hong Kong Stocks Head for Longest Weekly Loss Streak Since 2008



Bloomberg, (21/6) - Hong Kong stocks fell a fourth day, heading for the longest weekly losing streak in 4 1/2 years, amid concern a worsening credit crunch for Chinese banks and a stalling recovery in the world’s second-largest economy will hamper earnings.

The Hang Seng Index dropped 1.9 percent to 20,003.57 as of 9:45 a.m. in Hong Kong, extending this week’s slide to 4.6 percent. The equity benchmark is heading for a sixth week of declines, the longest such losing streak since October 2008. All but one of the 50 companies on the index fell, with volume 50 percent above the 30-day intraday average. The Hang Seng China Enterprises Index lost 2.2 percent to 9,058.63.

“We see a lack of recovery momentum in China,” Tai Hui, Hong-Kong based chief market strategist for Asia at JPMorgan Asset Management, which oversees about $1.5 trillion globally, said in a Bloomberg TV interview. “What’s happening in China with the data as well as the liquidity squeeze have added to uncertainty. The government and central bank are willing to let the economy go through some pain.” (riko)

Dollar Set for Weekly Gain Before Data on Housing, Goods Orders


Bloomberg, (21/6) -- The dollar headed for a weekly gain against all of its 16 major peers before U.S. data next week on home prices and durable-goods orders that may add to the case for the Federal Reserve to slow its bond purchases.

The yen snapped a four-day decline against the greenback as Asian stocks extended a global rout before a speech today by Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda. Deutsche Bank AG’s G10 FX Carry Basket index fell to the lowest level since September as borrowing costs rose in the U.S.

“I expect the dollar to remain resilient because it’s become clear that the Fed’s policy stance is tapering,” said Yuki Sakasai, a foreign-exchange strategist at Barclays Plc in New York. The yen may weaken further as “there’s a sufficiently good chance that the Bank of Japan will have to introduce additional monetary easing.'

The dollar traded little changed at $1.3216 per euro as of 10:13 a.m. in Tokyo, set for a 1 percent advance on the week. The yen was little changed at 97.29 per dollar and added 0.1 percent to 128.55 against the euro.

WTI Crude Drops a Second Day on Rising Stockpiles, Fed Easing

Written By PT Kontak perkasa Futures Yogyakarta on Thursday, June 20, 2013 | 10:22 AM


Bloomberg, (20/6) -- West Texas Intermediate crude fell for a second day after U.S. stockpiles unexpectedly increased and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke said the central bank may start reducing bond purchases later this year.
 
U.S. crude inventories rose by 313,000 barrels last week, the Energy Information Administration said yesterday. Supplies were forecast to decline by 500,000 barrels, according to a Bloomberg News survey. The Fed may begin tapering bond purchases this year and end them in 2014 should the economy continue to improve, Bernanke said in Washington.

WTI for July delivery, which expires today, dropped as much as 89 cents to $97.35 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The volume of all futures traded was 12 percent above the 100-day average. Prices decreased 20 cents to $98.24 yesterday. The more actively traded August contract was down 80 cents at $97.68 at 11:39 a.m. Sydney time.

Brent for August settlement on the London-based ICE Futures Europe exchange lost as much as 97 cents, or 0.9 percent, to $105.15 a barrel. The European benchmark grade was at a premium of $7.58 to WTI futures, from $7.64 yesterday.

SPDR Gold Holdings Slump Below 1,000 Tons as $30 Billion Erased

Bloomberg, (20/6) -- Holdings in the SPDR Gold Trust, the world’s largest exchange-traded product backed by bullion, fell below 1,000 metric tons for the first time in four years, wiping $30 billion from the value of the fund this year.

Assets slumped 351.3 tons, or 26 percent, this year to 999.56 tons, the lowest since February 2009, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Holdings reached a record 1,353.35 tons in December. Billionaire John Paulson is the biggest investor.

Bullion sank to a one-month low today after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke said asset purchases may be reduced later this year as the economy strengthens. The drop in holdings underscores how some investors have lost faith in the metal as a store of value amid low inflation and a global equity rally.

“Gold’s weakness is related to the willingness to take risk and we expect ETF liquidation to continue in the coming months,” said Dominic Schnider, head of commodities research at UBS AG’s wealth-management unit in Singapore. “Many of the SPDR investors are in the U.S. and people there probably feel that there are better opportunities” elsewhere, he said.

Bullion declined 20 percent in 2013, sliding into a bear market in April, as the MSCI All-Country World Index of equities climbed 6.7 percent, and the dollar gained 2 percent against a basket of six major currencies. Gold rallied for 12 years through 2012 as the Fed cut borrowing costs to a record to bolster the economy.

Bernanke said yesterday the central bank, which currently buys $85 billion of Treasury and mortgage debt each month, may begin reducing purchases this year and end the program in 2014 should the U.S. economy continue to improve. The Federal Open Market Committee raised its U.S. growth forecasts for 2014.

Cash gold lost as much as 0.9 percent to $1,339.60 an ounce, the cheapest since May 20, and traded at $1,340.55 at 8:26 a.m. Singapore time. While prices rebounded from a more than two-year low of $1,321.95 on April 16 as the rout spurred a purchasing frenzy of coins, bars and jewelry from China to India and the U.S., they have tumbled 30 percent from an all-time high of $1,921.15 in September 2011.

U.S. government filings in May showed billionaire investor George Soros joined funds run by Northern Trust Corp. and BlackRock Inc. in cutting holdings in SPDR assets in the first quarter. Paulson kept his stake of 21.8 million shares.

Paulson posted a 13 percent decline in his Gold Fund last month, according to a letter to investors. The drop brings losses in the strategy to 54 percent since the start of the year, the firm said in the letter, a copy of which was obtained by Bloomberg News. The Gold Fund is the smallest strategy of the $19 billion money manager, with about $360 million, or 2 percent of assets, most of it Paulson’s own money.

Holdings in global ETPs backed by gold shrank 517.4 tons, or 20 percent this year, to 2,114.6 tons, the least since March 2011, data compiled by Bloomberg show. Assets reached a record 2,632.52 tons in December.

The number of hedge funds investing in gold globally shrank to 290 in May, the lowest since 2010, from 310 in December, with their assets slumping 31 percent this year to $22.2 billion on losses and redemptions, according to EurekaHedge Pte Ltd., a Singapore-based fund-research company.

“The ETF size and the outflows from the ETF market have a disproportionate effect on the sentiment of the market because of their extreme visibility,” Mark Keenan, an analyst at Societe Generale SA, said this week on Bloomberg Television’s “First Up” with Zeb Eckert. “We see ultimately about 800 tons coming out of the ETFs for this year.”

Perubahan paradigma membawa emas meluncur ke $1200 :SocGen

Written By PT Kontak perkasa Futures Yogyakarta on Tuesday, June 18, 2013 | 10:59 AM


Marketwatch, (18/6) -- Kejatuhan harga emas yang cukup cepat di beberapa waktu lalu membuat analis dari Sociate General pada Senin kemarin memangkas perkiraan akhir tahun untuk si logam kuning tersebut.

Dalam catatan terbarunya, analis yang dipimpin oleh kepala peneliti komoditi Michael Haigh memprediksi penurunan ke $1200 per ounce hingga akhir tahun, turun dari estimasi yang diberikan pada 2 April lalu di $1375 - perubahan yang terjadi karena emas sekarang tengah merubah arah mendekati $1382 - $1600.

Dalam dalam tulisannya, 'kami percaya bahwa aksi selloff dramatis di bulan April, dikombinasikan dengan prospek dimulainya pengurangan pelonggaran kuantitatif sebelum akhir tahun, telah menghasilkan perubahan paradigma dari tingkah laku investor terhadap harga emas, yang kemungkinan juga akan menghasilkan kelanjutan penjualan dalam skala besar pada ETF emas tahun ini dan mungkin hingga tahun depan.

Penjualan ETF emas telah rata-rata mencapai 100 ton per bulan sejak selloff April. Kami perkirakan bahwa kelanjutan penjualan pada ETF akan melampaui tingginya permintaan untuk perhiasan/koin dan emas batangan. Oleh karenanya kami merevisi turun target harga emas untuk kuartal empat 2013 ke $1200 per ounce.

Dari hal tersebut berarati 13.2 persen kelanjutan penurunan pada harga emas. Hingga Jumat, emas untuk kontrak pengiriman segera telah jatuh 17.2 persen sejak awal tahun. (brc)

Gold holds steady ahead of Fed meeting


Reuters, (18/6) -- Gold was little changed on Tuesday as investors awaited guidance from a Federal Reserve meeting on the outlook for the bank's stimulus programme, amid some strong U.S. economic data.

Spot gold was near steady, easing $0.40 to $1,383.95 an ounce by 0018 GMT. Bullion fell about 0.5 percent on Monday as U.S. stocks rallied ahead of the Fed policy meeting over Tuesday and Wednesday. U.S. gold also marked time, rising $0.40 to $1,383.5.

Markets are closely watching for any clues on whether the Fed will wind down its $85 billion monthly bond buying program, which has supported gold prices. Recent strong U.S. data has increased speculation the Fed could taper the program soon.

The majority of U.S. homebuilders view conditions in the industry as favourable for the first time since the start of the housing crisis seven years ago, with an industry report showing confidence in the sector surged in June.

Any scale-back of the stimulus would hurt gold, which is typically seen as a hedge against inflation. Bullion is down 17 percent so far this year as investors have shunned its safe-haven appeal, while global stocks have rallied.

Holdings in SPDR Gold Trust, the world's largest gold-backed exchange-traded fund, stood at 1,003.17 tonnes on Monday -- their lowest in more than four years.

Gold Bears Return as ETP Rout Extends to 17th Week: Commodities

Bloomberg, 14/6) -- Gold traders turned bearish for the first time in a month as investors reduced holdings in exchange-traded products for an unprecedented 17th consecutive week and India, the biggest buyer, announced curbs on imports.

Eighteen analysts surveyed by Bloomberg expect prices to fall next week, with 14 bullish and four neutral, the largest proportion of bears since May 17. Investors sold 490.4 metric tons valued at $21.8 billion through ETPs since Feb. 8 and the 2,124.7 tons left is the least they have held since April 2011, data compiled by Bloomberg show.

Bullion is on track for the first annual drop since 2000 as some investors lose faith in it as a store of value. While the slump into a bear market in April hurt billionaire hedge fund manager John Paulson and producer Newcrest Mining Ltd., it spurred purchases of coins and jewelry worldwide. That demand may be threatened in India after the nation raised gold import taxes to contain a record current-account deficit.

The metal fell 17 percent to $1,384.85 an ounce by 11:06 a.m. Singapore time this year and is trading 28 percent below the record $1,921.15 set in September 2011.

The Standard & Poor’s GSCI gauge of 24 commodities dropped 3.1 percent since the start of January and the MSCI All-Country World Index of equities rose 7.1 percent. Treasuries lost 1.4 percent, a Bank of America Corp. index shows.

India raised the import duty to 8 percent from 6 percent on June 5 and the central bank also further restricted shipments. Overseas purchases slid to an average of $36 million a day in the 14 business days through June 7, compared with an average $135 million a day in the 13 days through May 20, Raghuram Rajan, chief economic adviser in the Finance Ministry, said June 11. The All India Gems & Jewellery Trade Association has asked the government for a discussion on reversing the tax increase.

The move to slow demand comes amid the worst drop in ETP holdings since the first product was listed in 2003. Assets fell for 17 weeks through June 7 and are down 11.2 tons so far this week. Paulson, the largest investor in the SPDR Gold Trust, the biggest ETP, had a 13 percent loss in his Gold Fund last month. That takes the decline since the start of the year to 54 percent, according to a copy of a letter to investors obtained by Bloomberg News.

Bullion rose 57 percent since 2008 as the Fed led a global surge in money printing to boost growth. While the U.S. central bank will slow purchases, it will still buy $65 billion a month by October, the median of 59 economist estimates compiled by Bloomberg this month shows. The Bank of Japan restated its April pledge this week to increase the monetary base by 60 trillion to 70 trillion yen ($742 billion) a year, and refrained from adding extra policy tools to counter bond-market volatility.

“Global fundamentals, including accommodative monetary policy, remain positive for gold,” said Adrian Day, who manages about $135 million of assets as the president of Adrian Day Asset Management in Annapolis, Maryland. “The market is slowly realizing that despite all the talk about tapering of bond buying by the Fed, there will be no meaningful global tightening any time soon.”

The surge in equities over the past three quarters, which also damped demand for gold, is now partially reversing. The MSCI All-Country World Index reached a seven-week low yesterday. The U.S. Dollar Index, a measure against six currencies, slipped to the weakest in almost four months.

Hong Kong Stocks Rebound as U.S. Economic Data Beats Estimates


(Bloomberg) 14/6 -- Hong Kong stocks gained, with the city’s benchmark index rebounding from its lowest close since Oct. 8, as U.S. economic data beat estimates and on bets the Federal Reserve will keep interest rates at a record-low.

The Hang Seng Index rose 0.6 percent to 21,005.48 as of 9:34 a.m. The Hang Seng China Enterprises Index added 0.5 percent. The gauge yesterday closed 21 percent lower than its Feb. 1 high, exceeding the 20 percent threshold that some investors consider as a bear market.

Gold edges lower for second session on stimulus fears


Reuters, (14/6) - Gold eased for a second session on Friday as investors worried about an early end to the Federal Reserve's massive bond-buying stimulus on the back of strong U.S. data.

Spot gold fell 0.1 percent to $1,384.01 an ounce by 0023 GMT after losing about 0.15 percent on Thursday following stronger-than-expected U.S. data. U.S. gold rose about $6 to $1383.6.

U.S. retail sales rose more than expected in May and first-time applications for unemployment benefits fell last week, signs of resilience in the economy.

Investors fear a strengthening economy could prompt the Fed to start winding down its $85 billion monthly bond purchases that have supported gold prices.

Net gold imports into India have fallen from an average of $135 million in the first half of May to $36 million in the second half, the finance minister said. The government has raised the import duty on gold and curbed gold financing in an effort to cut its current account deficit.

SPDR Gold Trust, the world's largest gold-backed exchange-traded fund, said its holdings fell 0.63 percent to 1,003.53 tonnes on Thursday to fresh four-year lows.

Asia stocks swoon; Japan, China markets plunge

Written By PT Kontak perkasa Futures Yogyakarta on Thursday, June 13, 2013 | 3:55 PM


MarketWatch(13/6) -- The Nikkei Stock Average plummeted 6.4% to end at 12,445.38 in Tokyo for its sixth loss in seven trading days. The drop marked the benchmark’s decline for a seventh straight Thursday, including the 7.3% plunge on May 23.

The selloff came as the U.S. dollar fell as low as ¥93.76 during the session, nearly two full yen lower than the ¥95.61-level seen in North America late on Wednesday. The drop followed a a third straight session of losses for U.S. stocks Wednesday, on concerns the Federal Reserve could taper down its bond purchases.
The dollar’s tumble against the yen “will put regional markets under pressure, but it may also [force] the U.S. Fed to reconsider its tapering plans in the face of a global sell off,” said Kim Eng Securities director of sales trading Andrew Sullivan.

Japan Stocks Tumble as Nikkei 225 Nears Bear Market; Yen Climbs


Bloomberg, (13/6) -- Japan’s Nikkei 225 Stock Average plunged, falling 19 percent from a recent high and close to entering a bear market, as the yen rose to its strongest against the dollar in more than two months.

The Nikkei 225 slumped 5.6 percent to 12,547.96 as of 12:39 p.m. in Tokyo, its third fall of more than 5 percent in the past month. The gauge dropped as much 6.6 percent today, the biggest loss since shares in Japan plummeted on May 23. Nikkei 225 futures lost 5.4 percent in Osaka and 5.1 percent in Singapore. The Topix sank 4.2 percent to 1,050.78 with all 33 industry groups retreating.

“Selling breeds selling and it’s snowballing,” said Nader Naeimi, Sydney-based head of dynamic asset allocation at AMP Capital Investors Ltd., which manages $126 billion. “There’s a global sell-off in risk assets. Short term there was froth and that needed to come out, especially in Japan.”

All but one company on the Nikkei 225 fell. Toyota Motor Corp., the world’s No. 1 carmaker, sank 3.8 percent. Nomura Holdings Inc., Japan’s biggest brokerage, lost 4.8 percent as securities companies declined. Hino Motors Ltd. tumbled 7.9 percent for the biggest fall on the Nikkei 225. Kansai Electric Power Co. was the only share to rise.

The yen today rose to its strongest level since April 4, when the Bank of Japan unveiled a plan to buy more than 7 trillion yen ($73 billion) of bonds every month in an attempt to secure 2 percent inflation. The Japanese currency gained to as much as 94.45 per dollar.

“Investors are worried that the yen may strengthen even further,” said Tomomi Yamashita, a fund manager who helps oversee the equivalent of $5 billion at Shinkin Asset Management Co. in Tokyo. “There isn’t any good material to boost the market right now, and investors who had bought too much are feeling uneasy and now dumping shares.”

Yellen difavoritkan untuk menggantikan Bernanke Fed: jajak pendapat Reuters


(Reuters) 13/6 - Janet Yellen, yang sekarang menjabat wakil ketua Federal Reserve, adalah kandidat yang paling di favoritkan untuk menggantikan Ben Bernanke saat masa jabatan keduanya sebagai pimpinan bank sentral AS berakhir awal tahun depan, menurut jajak pendapat Reuters terhadap para ekonom.

Hasil jejak pendapat menyatakan bahwa 40 dari 44 ekonom kata Yellen, mantan presiden San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank, akan menjabat sebagai pimpinan Federal Reserve pada bulan Februari 2014. Dukungan untuk nominasi nya kuat tapi belum cukup kuat, dengan 23 dari 38 ekonom mendukung untuk menduduki jabatan tertinggi Federal Reserve.

Yellen, ekonom berusia 66 tahun yang dipandang sebagai pendorong kelonggaran kebijakan moneter, setelah menjabat sebagai orang nomor dua di bank sentral sejak 2010. Dia sangat mendukung langkah-langkah agresif yang diambil oleh Bernanke untuk memacu pertumbuhan ekonomi AS dan meningkatkan lapangan kerja. (izr)

Yen Surges Past 95 Per Dollar to 2-Month High on Japan Flow Data



Bloomberg(13/6) -- The yen surged, jumping to the strongest level in two months against the dollar, after government data showed Japanese investors were net sellers of overseas bonds and stocks for a fourth-straight week.

The greenback’s volatility against the Japanese currency jumped to the highest in more than two years before U.S. economic data that may provide more direction about when the Federal Reserve will begin to slow stimulus. The yen has now unwound all its losses since the Bank of Japan announced unprecedented monetary stimulus on April 4. New Zealand’s dollar dropped against all of its major peers after the central bank signaled the currency remains overvalued.

The yen surged 1.3 percent to 94.75 per dollar as of 11:28 a.m. in Tokyo after climbing to 94.45, the strongest since April 4. Its 4.2 percent, three-day advance is set to be the biggest since May 2010. The currency pair’s one-month implied volatility touched 17.1 percent, a level unseen since March 2011. The yen gained 1.2 percent to 126.59 per euro.

Gold extends declines into 2nd day on stimulus worries

Written By PT Kontak perkasa Futures Yogyakarta on Wednesday, June 12, 2013 | 9:19 AM


Reuters, (12/6) -- Gold extended declines into a second session on Wednesday as fears lingered that the Federal Reserve could curb its stimulus programme as the U.S. economy shows signs of recovery.

Spot gold had fallen 0.2 percent to $1,376.29 an ounce by 0022 GMT, after a 0.5 percent drop the day before as equity and commodity markets were rattled by the absence of fresh steps from the Bank of Japan to calm turbulence in the domestic bond market.

Bullion had fallen to its lowest in nearly three weeks on Tuesday before recovering some of the losses.

U.S. gold was little changed at $1,376.20.

A Standard & Poor's upgrade of the U.S. credit outlook on Monday prompted investors to believe the economy was strong enough for the Fed to begin scaling back its bond purchases. Such a step would dent gold's appeal as a hedge against inflation.

BOJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said the central bank would consider fresh steps to calm markets if borrowing costs spike again in the future, but the central bank held off on new measures on Tuesday arguing that bond markets had stabilised.

Outflows from gold-backed exchange-traded products totalled $5.7 billion in May, compared with $8.7 billion in April, according to Blackrock. In the first four trading days of June, outflows amounted to $374 million.

Rencana Jepang meredam harga minyak

NEW YORK. Rencana Bank Sentral Jepang untuk membatasi stimulus berdampak kemana-mana. Setelah bursa Amerika Serikat (AS) dan harga emas, pengaruh rencana pembatasan stimulus di Jepang itu ikut mempengaruhi harga minyak dunia.

Harga minyak mentah Brent turun karena ada kekhawatiran, bank sentral selain Jepang ikut sikap dari Bank Sentral Jepang tersebut. Para investor khawatir, banyak bank sentral lain ikut memperlonggar kebijakan moneter seperti yang akan dilakukan Jepang.

'Gagasan dari Bank of Japan meredam harga,' kata Gene McGillian, analis dari Tradition Energy di Stamford. Minyak mentah Brent turun 99 sen menjadi US$ 102,96 per barel, setelah sebelumnya kehilangan lebih dari $ 2 per barel.

Minyak mentah AS merosot 39 sen menjadi US$ 95,38 per barel setelah sempat jatuh ke posisi US$ 94,04, per barel, sedikit di bawah rata-rata 100 hari di harga US$ 94,07.

McGillian mencatat, bahwa reli harga minyak menuju US$ 97 yang terjadi baru-baru ini telah mereda setelah tak ada lagi tanda-tanda pulihnya ekonomi AS.

Sejak awal Mei, minyak mentah Brent diperdagangkan pada kisaran US$ 100 - US$ 105 per barel sejak awal Mei. Sedangkan minyak mentah AS pada waktu yang sama diperdagangkan pada kisaran US$ 91 - US$ 97 per barel.

Asian Stocks Extend Rally; SoftBank Advances On Offer For Sprint

Bloomberg, (11/6) -- Asian stocks rose, with the regional equity benchmark extending the biggest gain in three weeks yesterday, as consumer shares advanced. SoftBank Corp. gained after Sprint Nextel Corp.’s board approved an increased takeover offer from the Japanese mobile carrier.

Japan’s Topix index added 0.3 percent after surging the most in two years yesterday ahead of a Bank of Japan policy statement today. 

The MSCI Asia Pacific Index added 0.2 percent to 131.99 as of 10:07 a.m. in Tokyo after falling less than 0.1 percent. The measure gained 1.1 percent yesterday, the biggest gain since May 20. Seven of the gauge’s 10 industry groups rose.

“The BOJ’s press conference and monetary policy statement today have the chance to add stability to a currency and a market that have been in free-fall,” said Evan Lucas, a Melbourne-based markets strategist at trading-services provider IG Markets Ltd.

Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 added 0.1 percent as the market reopened after a holiday. China’s equity market is shut for a holiday. New Zealand’s NZX 50 Index fell 0.1 percent. South Korea’s Kospi index lost 0.6 percent.

Emas Bergerak Lemah Di Asia Pasca Revisi Kredit AS

Reuters, (11/6) - Emas tergelincir di perdagangan Asia Selasa pagi karena penguatan dolar AS dan ekuitas setelah Standard & Poor merevisi prospek kredit untuk Amerika Serikat dari negatif menjadi stabil.

Spot emas melemah 0,07 persen menjadi $ 1,385.41 per ounce pada pukul 07:07 WIB, setelah membukukan keuntungan kecil di sesi sebelumnya. Emas AS sedikit berubah pada posisi $ 1,385.20.

Perusahaan pemeringkat, S & P pada hari Senin menghapus ancaman jangka pendek atas downgrade peringkat kredit untuk AS dengan merevisi prospeknya menjadi stabil, mengutip prospek ekonomi dan fiskal yang terus membaik.

Analis mengatakan bahwa ini bisa menekan daya tarik emas sebagai safe haven untuk jangka pendek menyusul serangkaian data ekonomi AS yang positif.

Inflasi yang rendah berarti Federal Reserve AS belum dapat menerapkan kampanye untuk menurunkan pembelian obligasi yang agresif jika diperlukan, Presiden the Fed of St Louis, James Bullard mengatakan pada hari Senin, dengan alasan bahwa dia tidak mendukung pemangkasan pembelian obligasi.

Kepemilikan SPDR Gold Trust naik sebesar 0,3 persen menjadi 1,009.85 ton pada hari Senin. Kepemilikan tersebut masih berada di dekat posisi terendah empat tahun. (brc)

Topix Jumps Most Since March 2011

Written By PT Kontak perkasa Futures Yogyakarta on Monday, June 10, 2013 | 11:42 AM

Bloomberg, (10/6) -- The Topix index climbed by the most in two years, after a three-week, $600 billion rout, as the yen weakened and shares advanced across the board. Stocks also gained after the government pension fund said it will sell bonds to buy more equities.

All the Topix’s 33 industry groups advanced, led by carmakers, brokerages and steel producers. Toyota Motor Corp. jumped 7.1 percent, the most since March 2011. Sharp Corp. surged 12.7 percent after Qualcomm Inc. agreed to a second share purchase. Toshiba Corp. soared 7 percent after a report it may win a contract to build nuclear reactors in the Czech Republic.

The Topix increased 4 percent to 1,099.64 as of 12:46 p.m. in Tokyo, its biggest gain since March 22, 2011. Just 41 shares fell on the 1,709-member gauge. The measure plunged 6.9 percent last week, its third weekly decline. It’s the first time since at least 2000 the gauge has dropped more than 4 percent for three straight weeks. The yen weakened against the dollar after better-than-estimated U.S. jobs data last week.

“The stock market is carefully watching the currency market,” said Masayuki Kubota, who oversees the equivalent of $1.7 billion at Daiwa SB Investments Ltd. in Tokyo. “But both the markets have been so volatile recently it’s hard to know what the appropriate levels are.”

Shares also rose today after the government said the Japanese economy grew more in the first quarter than the government initially forecast. Gross domestic product expanded an annualized 4.1 percent, compared with a preliminary calculation of 3.5 percent, the Cabinet Office said.
More Shares

The BOJ started a two-day policy meeting today. At issue is whether to double the maturity of loans extended to banks to two years to quell bond-market volatility. The board is divided over authorizing the measure.

Gold Rebounds From Worst Slump Since May on Chinese Factory Data

Bloomberg, (10/6) -- Gold gained, paring last week’s decline, as investors bought the precious metal as a haven asset after China’s data trailed forecasts, sparking a selloff in industrial raw materials.

Spot gold advanced as much as 0.4 percent to $1,388.41 an ounce before trading at $1,386.04 as of 10:48 a.m. Singapore time. Prices ended down 2.2 percent on June 7, the worst close since May 15, after data showed U.S. employers took on 175,000 workers in May, beating the 163,000 median forecast in a Bloomberg survey.

China’s industrial output rose a less-than-forecast 9.2 percent in May from a year earlier and factory-gate prices fell for a 15th month, while export gains were at a 10-month low and imports dropped, data released over the weekend show. Gold has dropped 17 percent this year, entering a bear market in April as economic optimism increased speculation that the U.S. Federal Reserve may scale back its monetary stimulus.

Alan Greenspan, a former Fed chairman, said on CNBC television last week that the central bank needs to begin cutting back on its unprecedented asset purchases and move toward stopping them altogether. The central bank currently buys $85 billion of Treasury and mortgage debt a month.

Speculators raised their net-long position on gold by 19 percent to 57,113 futures and options by June 4, the highest in seven weeks, U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission data show.

Gold held in exchange-traded products fell 1.3 metric tons to 2,135.866 tons as of June 7, the lowest since May 2011, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

Taruhan seputar pengurangan stimulus angkat index dollar

Bloomberg, (10/6) - Index Dollar naik untuk hari kedua sebelum Presiden Federal Reserve of St Louis, James Bullard berbicara hari ini di tengah spekulasi bahwa bank sentral akan memperlambat stimulus moneter karena membaiknya perekonomian.

Greenback menguat terhadap yen, reli dari posisi terendah dalam dua bulan setelah hasil data pekerjaan AS yang rilis Jumat lalu lebih baik dari perkiraan dan menjelang pertemuan kebijakan Bank of Japan selama dua hari pekan ini. Dollar Australia dan Selandia Baru melemah setelah data China menunjukkan tingkat impor yang jatuh secara tak terduga.

'Saya perkirakan dollar akan cukup solid ditengah berkutatnya seputar ekspektasi bahwa the Fed akan mulai memperlambat program pelonggaran moneternya,' kata Daisaku Ueno, senior analis valuta asing dan pendapatan tetap dari Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley Securities Co di Tokyo. 'Di Jepang, ada rasa bahwa BOJ akan memperkenalkan pelonggaran tambahan.'

Indeks Dollar, yang Intercontinental Exchange Inc menggunakan untuk melacak greenback terhadap mata uang dari enam mitra dagang AS, naik 0,1 persen menjadi 81,753 pada pukul 09:45 am di Tokyo dibandingkan tanggal 7 Juni, ketika naik sebesar 0,2 persen.

Dolar naik 0,4 persen menjadi ¥ 97,97 dari tanggal 7 Juni, ketika menyentuh 94.99, terendah sejak 4 April. Greenback diambil $ 1,3215 dari $ 1,3218 pada akhir pekan lalu, ketika menguat 0,2 persen. Euro naik 0,4 persen menjadi 129,44 ¥.

Dolar Australia turun 0,5 persen menjadi 94,54 sen AS. Kiwi Dolar Selandia Baru melemah 0,3 persen menjadi 78,70 sen AS.

Written By PT Kontak perkasa Futures Yogyakarta on Wednesday, June 5, 2013 | 9:35 AM


Bloomberg, (5/6) - Saham Jepang berayun antara keuntungan dan kerugian menjelang pidato Perdana Menteri Shinzo Abe mengenai strategi pertumbuhan negara.

Indeks Topix kehilangan 0,2 persen menjadi 1,123.33 pada pukul 09:39 am di Tokyo, setelah naik sebanyak 0,2 persen sebelumnya. Lima saham naik untuk setiap tiga yang jatuh. Indeks Nikkei 225 Stock Average sedikit berubah pada posisi 13.528 dengan volume 15 persen di bawah 30-hari rata-rata intradaynya.

'Hari ini adalah hari Abe - 'hari panah ketiga' - konferensi pers yang telah lama ditunggu-tunggu pada kebijakan untuk menghidupkan kembali pertumbuhan,' kata Stuart Beavis, kepala ekuitas derivatif institusional dari Vantage Capital Markets di Hong Kong. 'Hari ini adalah awal dari pembangunan reformasi struktural yang lengkap yang telah diharapkan sejak pasca pemilihan umum bulan Juli.'

Nomura Holdings Inc merosot 2,4 persen, memangkas kenaikan 7,6 persen kemarin. Saham-saham eksportir menurun bahkan setelah yen melemah melewati 100 dolar. Saham real estate menguat setelah surat kabar Nikkei melaporkan bahwa Abe akan mempromosikan perkembangan kondominium bertingkat tinggi dalam rencana pertumbuhannya. (brc)

Dollar Bertahan Diatas 100 Yen

Bloomberg, Rabu (5/6) - Dolar bertahan di atas 100 yen untuk hari kedua, setelah menguat dari posisi terendah dalam hampir sebulan terakhir sebelum rilis data tenaga kerja AS yang dapat menambah permasalahan bagi Federal Reserve untuk memperlambat laju stimulus moneternya.

Presiden the Fed of Kansas City, Esther George kemarin mendesak pengurangan program pembelian obligasi bank sentral yang dikenal sebagai pelonggaran kuantitatif (QE) karena laju pertumbuhan yang semakin cepat. Presiden the Fed of San Francisco, John Williams mengatakan "penyesuaian ke bawah" yang mengacu pada pembelian aset dan itu mungkin secepat "awal musim panas ini."

Dolar naik 0,3 persen ke 100,30 yen pada pukul 09:39 am di Tokyo dari level kemarin, ketika naik 0,5 persen. Mata uang tersebut turun ke 98,87 pada tanggal 3 Juni lalu, terendah sejak 9 Mei. Euro jatuh 0,1 persen menjadi $ 1,3069. Mata uang bersama Eropa tersebut naik sebesar 0,2 persen menjadi 131,10 yen.

Indeks Dollar, yang Intercontinental Exchange Inc menggunakannya untuk melacak dolar AS terhadap mata uang dari enam mitra dagangnya, naik sebesar 0,1 persen menjadi 82,87.

ADP Research Institute kemungkinan akan melaporkan tingkat penyerapan tenaga kerja di AS yang naik sekitar 46.000 pekerjaan menjadi 165.000 pada bulan Mei dibandingkan bulan sebelumnya, menurut perkiraan median dari ekonom yang disurvei Bloomberg News.

Yen melemah terhadap sebagian besar rekan-rekan utama sebelum Perdana Menteri Jepang Shinzo Abe menguraikan strategi pertumbuhannya, "panah ketiga" dari program kebangkitan ekonomi yang bertujuan untuk membangun stimulus fiskal dan moneter. Yen jatuh ke posisi terlemah sejak Oktober 2008 pada bulan lalu, setelah Bank of Japan pada bulan April mengumumkan akan membeli lebih dari 7 triliun yen (US $ 70 milyar) dari obligasi setiap bulannya.

Gold Holds Decline as Dollar Strengthens, SPDR Outflow Resumes


Bloomberg, (5/6) -- Gold held losses as the dollar’s strength damped demand for a store of value and outflows from the largest bullion-backed exchange-traded product resumed.

Spot gold traded at $1,399.88 an ounce at 9:12 a.m. in Singapore from $1,399.43 yesterday, when prices decreased 0.9 percent. Cash silver was little changed at $22.536 an ounce.

Gold has dropped 16 percent this year as the dollar rallied on speculation the U.S. Federal Reserve may scale back asset purchases as the economy recovers. The Dollar Index rose for a second day today before U.S. employment data that may back the case for less stimulus. Assets in the SPDR Gold Trust fell to 1,010.45 metric tons, shrinking for the first time in a week.

“The dollar’s performance has kept gold in a tight range,” said Huang Fulong, an analyst at CITICS Futures Co., a unit of China’s largest listed brokerage. “We continue to watch ETF flows with interest. India took another step to curb demand, which weighed on sentiment, although it remains to be seen if it will be effective.”

Bullion for August delivery was little changed at $1,397.30 an ounce on the Comex, after sliding 1 percent yesterday as India, the world’s biggest consumer, widened curbs on imports. The restrictions on overseas purchases by banks on a consignment basis will be expanded to include state-run trading companies and others authorized to directly import gold, the Reserve Bank of India said.

Kansas City Fed President Esther George yesterday urged a reduction in the central bank’s bond-buying program as growth quickens. San Francisco Fed President John Williams said that a “modest adjustment downward” in purchases is possible “as early as this summer.”
