Sinopec Expects Nearly 57% Rise in Profit for First Nine Months 2018

Investing.com – Shares of China Petroleum & Chemical Corp Class H (HK:0386) (Sinopec) dropped 3.39% to HK$6.56 in Hong Kong on Thursday even after the company announced that it expected significant profit increases for the first nine months of the year.

In an announcement on Tuesday, the company said it expects profits attributable to shareholders to the end of September to increase between 54.7% and 56.6% to RMB21 billion to RMB21.7 billion. (Wednesday was a holiday in Hong Kong.)

The company said that increased profits were driven by increases in oil prices and improvements in its upstream business.

The company also released a white paper that showed it has contributed RMB1.93 billion (US$279 million) to poverty reduction in the past three decades, according to Xinhua. Sinopec had 44 projects underway last year in industrial development, countryside tourism, labor training and education in poor counties.

Crypto Prices Mixed; Binance Partners With Chainalysis to Add Compliance Tools

Investing.com - Cryptocurrency prices were mixed on Thursday, while Binance announced a partnership with New York-based compliance software provider Chainalysis to add compliance tools.

Bitcoin dropped 0.4% to $6,702.6 by 12:40 AM ET (04:40GMT) on the Bitifinex exchange, after receiving some support earlier this week with the launch of Fidelity Asset Services, a crypto trading platform for Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Ethereum fell 1.0% to $213.81 and Litecoin was little changed at $55.1. XRP gained 0.7% to $0.48789 on the Poloniex exchange.  

Chainalysis’ compliance software provides real-time monitoring of cryptocurrencies transactions and allows cryptocurrency exchanges to distinguish suspicious patterns, according to various reports on Wednesday.

The software could “identify and categorize thousands of cryptocurrency services to raise live alerts on transactions involved in suspicious activity,” the company said.

Commenting on the news, Wei Zhou, CFO at Binance, said: “By working with Chainalysis, we are able to continue building a foundational compliance program that enables the next phase of our growth. Our vision is to provide the infrastructure for a blockchain ecosystem and increase the freedom of money globally, while adhering to regulatory mandates in the countries we serve.”

In other news, Hong Kong-based exchange BTCC will expand its services to South Korea later in October, Korean business site The Investor reported.

BTCC will start providing beta service in October and begin its full debut in November. The service will include a trading platform, wallets, a mining pool and consumer payments. The company was founded in 2011 and was one of the top trading platforms in China before a crackdown on the mainland prompted it to close. It was bought in January by a blockchain investment fund in Hong Kong.

Oil Prices Drop on Larger-than-Expected U.S. Crude Stocks

Investing.com - Oil prices extended losses on Thursday morning in Asia after a report showing a larger-than-expected build in crude stockpiles last week.

Also affecting the market were ongoing jitters over the disappearance of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi and the impact of the disappearance on relations between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia.

Crude Oil WTI Futures for November delivery edged down 0.11% to $69.67 per barrel by 11:13PM ET (03:13 GMT) on the New York Mercantile Exchange, falling below the $70 mark for the first time in about a month. Brent Oil Futures for December delivery lost 0.1% to $79.97 a barrel on London’s Intercontinental Exchange.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration said on Wednesday that U.S. crude stocks surged by 6.5 million barrels last week, marking the fourth straight week of increases. Exports fell to 1.8 million bpd.

The increase in inventories offset a slip in U.S. crude production of 300,000 bpd to 10.9 million bpd over the same period after some of the offshore facilities were shut down for Hurricane Michael.

“A tick higher in refining activity and a drop-in production due to hurricane activity in the Gulf was not enough to halt a fourth consecutive climb in stocks,” Matt Smith, director of commodity research at ClipperData, told Reuters.

Separately, major oil producer and exporter Saudi Arabia is under international pressure due to its alleged involvement in the disappearance of Khashoggi, who went missing after entering the country’s consulate.

U.S. President Donald Trump asked Turkey for an audio recording of Khashoggi’s death, which Turkey claimed to have already sent to the U.S.

On Wednesday, Trump said, “We’ve asked for it…if it exists…I’m not giving cover at all. And with that being said, Saudi Arabia has been a very important ally of ours in the Middle East. We are stopping Iran.”

The Turkish government leaked evidence, cited by the New York Times on Wednesday, about Khashoggi being tortured at the consulate. The evidence supposedly suggests the journalist was beaten, beheaded and his body was dismembered. If the evidence is confirmed, it could drive up the international political tensions.

Yuan Slips as U.S. Declines to Label China a Currency Manipulator

Investing.com - The Chinese yuan slipped against the dollar on Thursday as the U.S. held off from labeling China as a currency manipulator.

The Treasury Department declined to label China or any other trading partner of the U.S. as currency manipulators, but added that Beijing and some other countries including Germany, Japan and India have been put on a watch list.

The USD/CNY pair last traded at 6.9367 at 12:20 AM ET (04:20 GMT), up 0.12%. The People's Bank of China (PBOC) set the yuan reference rate at 6.9275 vs the previous day's fix of 6.9103.

Meanwhile, the U.S. dollar index that tracks the greenback against a basket of other currencies inched up 0.06% to 95.41 after the minutes from the latest Federal Open Market Committee meeting revealed that the Fed is likely to gradually raise rates to preserve a steady economy, despite U.S. President Donald Trump’s view that the central bank has been increasing rates too fast.

"The USD has been making up some lost ground in the past 24 hours or so. It seems to have been more market related rather than US data (only housing starts were released overnight and they were likely hurricane affected), while the FOMC Minutes this morning also have not shifted the dial too much," David de Garis, a director and senior economist at National Australia Bank, said in a morning note.

Elsewhere, the USD/JPY pair dipped 0.12% to 112.53 after Bank of Japan Governor Kuroda said the central bank will continue to maintain its current stance of low interest rates until Japan achieves its 2% inflation target.

The AUD/USD pair and the NZD/USD pair gained 0.4% and 0.08% respectively.

Stocks - S&P Closes Flat as Fed Minutes, Energy Weigh

Investing.com - The S&P 500 closed flat on Wednesday as the Federal Reserve's minutes pointed to further monetary tightening, while a slump in oil prices pressured energy stocks.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell about 0.36%. The S&P 500 fell 0.03%, while the Nasdaq Composite fell 0.04%.

Wall Street's attempt to extend its rally following its biggest one-day gain since March on Tuesday was undone by concerns that further Fed rate hikes could fuel a rally in U.S. government bond yields, denting investor appetite for risker assets like stocks.

The Federal Reserve's minutes showed that members remained committed to gradually raising interest rates as the economy was on pace to churn out "strong" growth in the third quarter of the year.

U.S. government bond yields surged following the release of the Fed's minutes as the 10-year Treasury note yield hit session highs.

Mostly upbeat corporate earnings, which have helped shift investor focus away from rising bond yields to corporate fundamentals, helped offset losses somewhat in the broader averages.

Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) posted third-quarter earnings postmarket Tuesday that handily beat expectations, as subscriber numbers came in well above analysts' estimates amid strong growth in both U.S. and overseas markets. Its stock closed 5.3% higher.

M&T Bank (NYSE:MTB) and US Bancorp (NYSE:USB) results also topped estimates, adding to a recent wave of bullish earnings from banks, triggering broad-based gains across financials.

Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) and Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS), both of which reported above-forecast earnings and revenue on Tuesday, rose nearly 3%.

But a weaker-than-expected report from IBM (NYSE:IBM) saw its stock spiral 7.6% lower as the company struggled to maintain revenue growth, though its earnings came in above Wall Street's estimates.

Falling energy stocks inflicted much of the damage on the broader averages owing to a slump in oil prices after data showed a larger-than-expected build in domestic oil supplies.

The yo-yo day of trade on Wall Street, which was characterized by violent swings in both directions, was not helped by soft housing data, triggering a slump in homebuilders.

The Commerce Department said Wednesday U.S. homebuilding fell 5.3% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.201 million units in September. Building permits fell 0.6% to a rate of 1.241 million units.

Shares of Lennar (NYSE:LEN), KB Home (NYSE:KBH) and DR Horton (NYSE:DHI) slumped more than 2%.

In corporate news, Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) fell 1.74% following reports that CEO Elon Musk had informed the electric car company that he intended to purchase $20 million of common stock during the next open trading window.

Top S&P 500 Gainers and Losers Today:

United Continental (NASDAQ:UAL), Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) and US Bancorp (NYSE:USB) were among the top S&P 500 gainers for the session.

IBM (NYSE:IBM), AutoZone (NYSE:AZO) and Campbell Soup (NYSE:CPB) were among the worst S&P 500 performers of the session.

Oil Down 3% on Supply Build; $100 Bet Looks More Distant

Investing.com - The oil market's previous bet for $100 a barrel is turning into a bet on how much more crude could lose before the year is up.

An outsize build in U.S. inventories for a fourth week running was the latest in a bearish set of events that have transformed the bullish story in oil. Wednesday's EIA report drove prices down as much as 3%, pushing U.S. (WTI crude) below the key $70 mark and its U.K. peer Brent under $80.

"At the least, the bulls have to cut some of the risk they've piled on," said Tariq Zahir, managing member at Tyche Capital Advisors, an oil-focused hedge fund in New York.

Also weighing on the market was data from TankerTrackers, an independent oil cargo surveyor, that showed Iran exported 2.2 million barrels per day in the first two weeks of October, not far from the peak of 2.7 million bpd it shipped in May before the U.S. decision to reimpose sanctions against the Islamic state.

And even more disruptive to bullish oil positions was a story in the New York Times that a Saudi Arabian crisis over the disapperance or alleged murder of a journalist may now derail President Donald Trump's hopes to enlist Riyadh's help to turn Iranian oil exports to zero under the sanctions beginning Nov. 4.

WTI, which rose nearly 7% between August and September, is down 6% so far into October. It ended Wednesday's session down $2.17, or 3%, at $69.75 a barrel. Despite the slide, WTI still showed a gain of 15% on the year, though that could be further reduced without a quick turnaround in sentiment.

Brent was down $1.49, or 1.8%, at $79.92 by 2:46 PM ET (18:46 GMT), after falling earlier to a three-week low of $79.22 . For the year though, it was still up 19%.

Just two weeks ago, Brent, the global benchmark for crude, hit four-year highs above $86 a barrel, heightening speculation that it would reach $100 by the end of the year or early 2019 from the combination of Iranian sanctions and supply squeezes in other major oil producing countries such as Libya, Iraq and Venezuela.

That view began to crumble after data from the EIA showed unexpectedly large crude builds of 8 million barrels and then 6 million barrels for two weeks in a row.

On Wednesday, the EIA again stunned the market, citing a growth of 6.5 million barrels for last week vs. analysts' forecasts for a build of 1.6 million barrels.

Casting further doubts on the $100-a-barrel bet were warnings last week by OPEC and the IEA, the energy watchdog of the West, that the market was comfortably supplied and could even return to a glut if demand falls from overpricing.

Gold Slips, Halting 2-day Climb; $1,250 Still in Sight

Investing.com - Gold prices fell on Wednesday after a two-day climb as a rallying dollar took some of the bullish support from the precious metal as the Federal Reserve released details from its latest policy meeting.

But analysts said they saw no major hurdles in bullion's path towards its next target of $1,250 an ounce.

In one of its most extraordinary performances in years, gold has held its own against the dollar amid a series of rate hikes planned by a distinctly hawkish Federal Reserve.

The dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of six currencies, rose nearly 0.5%, its most in three weeks.

After falling from a 2018 peak of $1,343.80 in February, gold returned to $1,200 in August. Since then, it has more or less held its ground there despite a rate increase in September, which the Fed is likely to follow with another in December and three more in 2019.

"The price of gold hasn’t retreated and tested its support level at $1210. And that’s good news," said Walter Pehowich, executive vice president at Dillon Gage Metals in Addison, Texas.

The Fed minutes reaffirmed the FOMC's commitment to a steady rise in rates, noting that "(f)urther gradual increases in the target range for the federal funds rate would be consistent with a sustained expansion of economic activity."

U.S. gold futures' most-actively-traded contract, December, settled down $3.60 at $1,227.40 on the COMEX division of the New York Mercantile Exchange. It hit a two-and-a-half-month high of $1,236.90 on Monday.

A surfeit of geopolitical tensions have supported gold over the past three weeks, including Saudi Arabia's crisis over the disappearance of an allegedly murdered journalist, China's trade war with the United States and Italy's budget woes that could affect the eurozone.

U.S. bond yields have also hit multiyear highs, restraining the dollar from rallying, to gold's advantage, despite a hawkish Fed.

Gold was also seeing strong support from speculators attempting to push it to $1,250 or beyond ahead of the expiration of options on Oct. 25, traders said.

Dollar Rides Euro, Sterling Slump Higher; Fed Minutes Eyed

Investing.com - The dollar rose against its rivals Wednesday, shrugging off soft housing market data ahead of the release of the Federal Reserve's September minutes.

The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback against a trade-weighted basket of six major currencies, rose by 0.34% to 95.09.

The Commerce Department said Wednesday U.S. homebuilding fell 5.3% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.201 million units in September, below economists' estimates of 1.220 million units.

The report also highlighted a sharp 0.6% fall in building permits to a rate of 1.241 million units, missing forecasts for a 2.1% increase.

The duo of bearish reports on housing activity added to what has been a streak of disappointing data for the housing sector at a time when many fear rising interest rates may dent home buying activity.

The release of the minutes from the Federal Reserve's September meeting, slated for 2.00 p.m., is expected to be closely parsed for clues on monetary policy in the wake of continued criticism from President Donald Trump.

Trump on Tuesday reiterated his criticism of the Fed's plans to continue with gradual rate hikes, saying the Fed was his "biggest threat" because it was raising rates too fast.

The dollar's charge higher was also supported by a weakness in both the pound and euro.

GBP/USD fell 0.35% to $1.3138 as inflation data missed economists' forecasts, while Brexit-related angst also weighed amid the EU summit this week.

EUR/USD lost 0.35% to $1.1534 on reports that the EU Commission had rejected Italy's latest budget submission.

Italy's plan to stick with its proposed 2019 budget deficit at 2.4% of GDP is expected to face backlash from policymakers in Brussels, raising tensions in the bloc.

USD/JPY fell 0.01% to Y112.25 as improving risk sentiment dented demand for safe-haven yen after Wall Street pared some of its earlier losses.

USD/CAD rose 0.45% to C$1.2992 as the loonie was pressured by a plunge in oil prices after data showed a larger-than-expected build in U.S. oil supplies.

In other news, smart contracts that use blockchain could be liable under U.S. regulations if they are used for event contracts, Brian Quintenz, a commissioner at the U.S. Commodity and Futures Trading Commission.

"Essentially, these contracts would allow individuals to bet on the outcome of future events, like sporting events or elections, using digital currency. If your prediction is right, the contract automatically pays you the winnings," he said.

Such contracts would fall under a prediction markets, which the CFTC regulates.

"If the contract is a product within the CFTC's jurisdiction, then regardless of whether it is executed via a written ISDA (International Swaps and Derivatives Association) confirmation or software code, it is subject to CFTC regulation," Quintenz said.
