"Yen traders eye BOJ minutes, China eyes rebound

The final trading week of the first half of the year gets underway on Monday, with Asia's scorecard looking reasonably positive from an equity perspective, mixed through a currency and bond lens, and more bleak from a Chinese market angle.

Chinese stocks will be looking to stop the rot and halt the recent decline that has extended their underperformance against regional and global peers this year.

Am holding a big shirt YEN posituon

"Investors in Japanese assets, meanwhile, are on high FX intervention alert after the yen fell on Friday for a seventh straight day towards 160.00 per dollar, the level that triggered the first of Tokyo's yen-buying forays into the market nearly two months ago.



With the Bank of Japan's next policy meeting not until July 30-31, it may require verbal or direct intervention again to halt the yen's slide. The BOJ's summary of opinions from its June 13-14 policy meeting, to be released on Monday, will be closely watched."

Nick Gerli (@nickgerli1) posted at 10:31 AM on Fri, Jun 21, 2024:
The downturn in Austin, TXs housing market is remarkable.

Inventory has now spiked to the highest level on record.

More than 25% higher than the previous, pre-pandemic high.

And the listings just keep coming.

Values down nearly 20% already and could have another 15% decline https://t.co/Jb8UOSZG0A
