Markets Wary of German ESM Ruling Delay

Markets Wary of German ESM Ruling Delay

Talking Points

  • German high court considering lawmaker’s bid to delay ESM ruling
  • Japan wages fall to near-low, Azumi says he is considering new policy
  • IMF’s Zhu Min says China growth could be cut by the Euro crisis

We are now only one day away from hearing the German Federal Constitutional Court’s decision on whether to allow the ratification of the permanent ESM bailout fund. However, first the court will announce today if the ruling will be decided tomorrow as scheduled, or if they will take more time to consider German lawmaker Peter Gauweiler’s bid to delay the decision and reconsider their ruling in light of the recent unveiling of the ECB’s unlimited bond purchase plan.

Also tomorrow, the three Greek coalition party leaders will meet again following the rejection of PM Samaras’s 11.5 billion Euro spending cuts plan. The Troika must approve Greece’s austerity plan in order for the struggling country to receive the next 31 billion Euro bailout payment.

In the overnight Asian session, new currency lending in China reached 703.9 billion Yuan in August, the highest amount for the summer month on record. The increased lending could be seen as a government effort to reverse the China economic slowdown.

In Japan, nationwide compensation fell by 243.5 trillion Yen in the second quarter, which was only 0.7% higher than the two-decade low. Japanese Finance Minister Jun Azumi said that Europe, the US and China all have downside risks to their economies, and he will be watching the Japanese economy further before deciding on additional policy steps.

Finally, the IMF’s Zhu Min said there is still a long way to go in the Europe crisis, and it could hurt the Chinese economy. However, Zhu Min said the Chinese economy is on a steady path and experiencing a soft landing.

There are no major released during today’s European session, the UK trade balance for July will be announced at 08:30 GMT. An announcement by the German High Court regarding the ESM ruling could move markets today, but it’s unclear when that announcement will take place.
