DOLLAR HITS 13-YR LOW VS YEN AS AUTOS BAILOUT FAILS – Dollar dives below 89 yen, hits 13-year low

The dollar hit a 13-year low against the yen on Friday after the U.S. Senate failed to agree on a bailout for U.S. automakers.

The U.S. Senate failed on Thursday night to reach a last-ditch compromise to bail out U.S. automakers, effectively killing any chance of congressional action this year.

The $14 billion legislation officially died in the Senate late on Thursday after supporters failed to get enough support in a procedural vote.

“It has become really severe for the prospect of the bailout plan,” said Mitsuru Sahara, senior manager at Bank of Tokyo-Mitsuibishi UFJ.

Traders said there were fewer market participants, making market swings larger, pushing the dollar below 89.00 yen for the first time in 13 years.

The dollar fell as low as 88.40 yen, the lowest since 1995.

The euro declined 0.4 percent to $1.3313.

BOJ EXPANDS LENDING FOR FIRMS (Japan)

The Bank of Japan said it will expand lending by about 3 trillion yen (HK$250 billion) to help companies tide over a year-end BANK OF JAPAN - SPAINcredit squeeze and accept lower rated corporate bonds as collateral for loans.

The central bank, which kept rates steady at 0.3 percent at an emergency meeting yesterday, said it plans to accept triple B-rated corporate bonds as collateral which would make it easier for banks, scarred by the global financial crisis, to lend to companies.

The move in Japan came as a private nonprofit group of economists said the United States is now in recession and the US economy may be in the midst of the longest slump in the post-World War II era as job losses mount and credit dries up. The economic slump began in December 2007, the National Bureau of Economic Research said.

The Federal Reserve might buy Treasury securities to spur growth.

CHINA PASSA JAPÃO COMO MAIOR CREDOR DOS ESTADOS UNIDOS

USA AND CHINA TALK MONEY

Em meio a sua pior crise financeira em décadas, os EUA vêem uma troca de guarda na posição de seus principais credores individuais. Segundo o relatório mais recente do governo, de setembro, a China passou o Japão como maior detentor de papéis do Tesouro americano, numa ascendente que começou seis meses atrás.

Agora, a China detém US$ 585 bilhões em “treasuries”, como são chamados os títulos da dívida pública dos EUA, ante US$ 573,2 bilhões do Japão, que mais vendeu do que comprou os papéis em quatro dos últimos seis meses. No total, estrangeiros detêm US$ 2,86 trilhões de títulos do governo americano, ou o dobro do PIB brasileiro.

A notícia é agridoce para os EUA. Por um lado, o país vê reafirmada a confiança dos mercados mundiais e a crença de que o governo terá condições de honrar seus compromissos.

Por outro, vê sair do topo da lista de credores seu principal aliado na Ásia para dar lugar a seu maior competidor comercial mundial. A política de compra dos títulos pela China é agressiva: o país dobrou o valor investido desde julho de 2005.

Brasil em 4°

Já o Brasil continua em quarto lugar, posição que ocupa há mais de um ano. Mas diminuiu sua exposição, passando de US$ 146,2 bilhões em agosto para US$ 141,9 bilhões em setembro. À frente do país, além de China e Japão, estão Reino Unido e dois agrupamentos, de exportadores de petróleo, formado por 15 países, e dos paraísos fiscais do Caribe, formado por seis países.

A diferença entre compra e venda de papéis foi de US$ 66,2 bilhões em setembro, mês em que as Bolsas tiveram grandes perdas -reflexo do estopim da atual fase da crise financeira, detonada pela decisão do governo dos EUA de não socorrer o banco de investimentos Lehman Brothers, que quebrou.

O Tesouro informou ainda que investidores estrangeiros compraram US$ 143,4 bilhões em ativos americanos em setembro, a maior entrada de capital em quase três anos.

EFECTOS DE LA CRISIS FINANCIERA – Japón entró ya en recesión económica

Posted by Gilmour Poincaree on November 18, 2008

17/11/2008

TOKIO, 17 de noviembre.— Considerada como la segunda economía mundial más fuerte, Japón entró Japón entró ya en recesión económica - noviembre de 2008hoy oficialmente en recesión, una semana después de que los 15 países de la Eurozona entraran por igual camino, influenciados por la crisis financiera de Estados Unidos.

Un comunicado de prensa del Ministerio de Finanzas indica que la economía nacional se contrajo, por segunda ocasión, en un 0,1% en el tercer trimestre, señala PL.

“Esta no será una recesión corta o indolora”, advirtió Noriko Hama, economista y profesor de la universidad Doshisha.

Con las economías de Francia y Gran Bretaña también en rápida desaceleración, el presidente de la Comisión Europea, José Manuel Durao Barroso, llamó a adoptar un plan de estímulo fiscal a nivel europeo.

Los inversionistas de Asia y Europa no se mostraban muy impresionados con la nueva ola de promesas efectuada el sábado por los líderes del grupo de países más industrializados y los emergentes para unir fuerzas a fin de estimular el crecimiento y reformar la arquitectura financiera mundial.

Entretanto, Reuters reporta desde Londres que las acciones europeas cayeron hoy, entre otros factores, por los crecientes temores a una recesión, los planes del banco Citigroup de eliminar 50 000 empleos y un retroceso de los precios de los metales.

Al mismo tiempo se dio a conocer que la zona euro acumuló un déficit comercial, en septiembre, de 5 600 millones de euros, frente al superávit de 2 900 millones en igual periodo del 2007, difundió la Eurostat.

Sin embargo, acota PL, economistas encuestados esperaban un desbalance de 7 300 millones de dólares para el noveno mes del 2008, muy por encima de lo registrado.
