    Brazil agreed to provide debt relief to state governments amounting to 50 billion reais ($15 billion) until 2018, seeking to offer a special loan to Rio de Janeiro prior to Olympics and beef up public services.
    Finance Minister Henrique Meirelles unveiled the debt relief as governors met with President Michel Temer, in which they would be given a six-month grace period and 1 ½ year of slashed payments.
    Source privy to the matter said Brazilian municipality would receive 3 billion reais ($850 million) loan, payable in the following week.

    [​IMG]

    USD/JPY is currently trading around 104.43 marks.
    It made intraday high at 104.85 and low at 104.35 levels. Intraday bias remains bearish for the moment.

    Asian Stocks Steady, Sentiment Bleak Before Brexit

    [​IMG]

    Asian stocks were steady as anxious investors await the results of the United Kingdom's EU referendum. Fed Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's cautious comments on possible rate hikes also toned down the mood in financial market.
    MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan climbed 0.1% while Japan's Nikkei dropped 0.7%. U.S. S&P Index rose 0.27% but was still under the 11-month high reached earlier this June. The Pound jumped as high as $1.4788 on Tuesday but slid back to $1.4667 during early Asian Trade. The Euro also dropped to $1.1250 compared to this week's peak of $1.1383 on Monday.

    Fxwirepro: Eur/gbp slips Below 78.6% Fib As Gbp Remains Bid on Bremain Sentiment

    [​IMG]

    According to the latest poll, via Number Cruncher Politics, the Remain camp continues on the lead at 46%(+3 from previous) vs Leave 44% (-1 from previous), with undecided at 10 (-2 from previous).

    Overnight, the latest polls via YouGov (online), showed Remain 51% and Leave 49%, while ComRes (phone) saw Remain 48% and Leave 42%.

    The pound continues to be well bid in light of the most recent opinion polls' outcomes. EUR/GBP has slipped below the 78% Fibo level and is currently trading around 0.7645 levels.

    Resistances on the upside align at 0.7656 (78.6% Fib of 0.7565 to 0.80 rally) ahead of 5-DMA at 0.77.

    On the downside supports are seen at 0.7617 (Jan 21st low), 0.76 and then 0.7568 (200-DMA). Market sentiment could be volatile in the lead up to the vote and recent moves on currency markets remain vulnerable to swings/reversals.

    Recommendation: Book partial profits, tighten trailing stops to 0.7656, target 0.7620/ 0.76

    Briferendum Series: Global Markets Feel Newcastle Tremors

    [​IMG]

    Results are coming out and some of them are a shocker. Newcastle was expected to be a stronghold for the “Remain” camp and was expected to provide somewhere around 12 percentage points lead to the “Remain” camp, instead, it was a very narrow lead in favor of the “Remain”. With 68 percent turnout, 65,504 people voted in favor of staying in the Union, while 63,598 favored going out. Newcastle was able to give a lead of only 1.4 percentage points to the “Remain” camp.

    With such setbacks, it’s not going well for the “Remain” camp. According to latest figure, authorities have so far declared results in 184 local authorities and 188 are still remaining. It is not all looking good for the “Remain” camp. “Leave” camp is leading with 52 percent in their favor.

    The pound has been declining fast after Newcastle shocker. Currently trading at 1.364 against the dollar, down more than 6 percent. The yen is up more than 3 percent trading at 101.3. S&P 500 is down 3.9%.

    Oil Continues Decline as Brexit Anxiety Persists

    [​IMG]

    Oil prices fell almost a percent on Monday, continuing distinct declines after the United Kingdom's vote to exit the EU triggered a significant selloff in global markets on Friday in order to avoid risks.

    London Brent crude declined 24 cents at $48.17 a barrel on Sunday from the $48.41 on Friday. NYMEX crude fell 26 cents at $47.38 a barrel after settling at $2.47 or 4.9% on Friday. The decline of the British pound during early Asian trading on Monday also added pressure to oil prices as investors struggle to determine the next step after the Brexit.

    Istanbul Airport Bombed, 31 Dead, 150 Wounded

    [​IMG]

    Ataturk Airport, the largest in Turkey and third busiest airport in the world, was the target of suicide bombers on Tuesday. Witnesses testified seeing 3 gunmen who opened fire to the people before setting off explosives.

    Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag said that a total of 31 were killed while 150 got wounded as a result of the attack. No group is claiming responsibility for the bombing yet, but police sources say that evidences point out to the Islamic State. This is because the same incident showed semblance to the attack that happened in Brussels airport on March 16.

    Turkey President Tayyip Erdogan meanwhile has expressed that terrorism nowadays has no regard on faith and values since the bombing took place during the Ramadan.

    The country has suffered from a series of attack just this year. It included two car bombings in Ankara and two suicide attacks in Istanbul. Turkey is known to be actively fighting the Islamic State and Kurdish militants.

    Largest Diamond Fails to Sell in Sotheby London Auction

    [​IMG]

    The 1,109-carat diamond Lesedi la Rona or “our light” remained unsold at an auction at London after the highest bid of $61 million didn't meet the minimum expected selling price. The diamond was expected to sell at $86 million. However, the highest bid only reached $61 million, far from the given “reserve price”, leaving the biggest diamond found in more than 100 years unsold at a Sotheby's auction on Wednesday.

    It is unclear what will happen to the diamond after the auction, but analysts are now looking at the potential of a private sale, most likely in a deal where Lucara Diamond Corp., the company who owns the Karowe mine where the diamond was unearthed, will still have some interest from the polished stones.

    BoJ Tankan: Business Sentiment Unchanged In Q2

    [​IMG]

    An index monitoring business sentiment in Japan was steady in the second quarter of 2016, the Bank of Japan said on Friday in its quarterly Tankan business survey. The large manufacturers' index came in with a score of +6, beating forecasts for +4 and unchanged from the previous quarter. The outlook also came in at +6, beating forecasts for +3, which would have been unchanged from Q1. The survey is closely watched by the Bank of Japan for formulating policies. Large industry capex for the current fiscal year is now seen higher by 6.2 percent, above forecasts for an increase of 5.6 percent and up sharply from the 0.9 percent decline seen in the previous quarter. The large non-manufacturers index was at 19, matching expectations although down from 22 in the previous quarter. The outlook score was 17, in line with forecasts and unchanged. The small manufacturing index came in at -5, beating expectations for -6 but down from -4 in the first quarter. The outlook was -7, in line with forecasts after showing -6 in the three months prior. The small non-manufacturing index had a score of 0, missing forecasts for 1 and down from 4 in the previous quarter. The outlook came in at -4, shy of forecasts for -2 and down from -3 in the three months prior. The sentiment indexes are derived by subtracting the percentage of respondents who say conditions are poor from those who say they are good. A positive reading means optimists outnumber pessimists.

    Tony Blair Suggest Leaders Remain Calm

    [​IMG]

    Former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair call for a sense of urgency when dealing with the process of the European Union negotiations. Blair recently declared that “our nation is in peril” following the referendum and added that a foreseeable complex relationship will soon be shared with other countries. Further on, he urged politicians to act with “genuine patriotic regard” in relation to the future of the country. Surprised by how distant and uncertain former European partners to Britain are today he goes off with a concerned tone.

    Blair suggests that in troubling times such as this the nation must portray a calm united front of supporting each other. The Labour party politician insists that this not be the time for another argument regarding the referendum and that politicians must be open to anything. He also mentioned for leaders to keep a cautious eye on Ukip leader Nigel Farage at the European parliament

    Line Lifts IPO Price Range to Meet High Demand

    Japan's Line Corp., the nation's biggest messaging application operator moved its price range for an upcoming IPO by as much as 115.5 billion yen or $1.12 billion due to the strong demand.

    Line lifted its price range from 2,700 yen to 3,200 yen a share up to 2,900 yen to 3,300 yen or $28.50-$32.50 a share. The company is targeting a dual listing in Tokyo and New York scheduled on July 14 and 15. It is expected to be the biggest technology listing so far in 2016.

    Line stated in a news release that its decision to lift its price range has factored in demand trends and the current stock market environment that revealed that investors remain interested on the IPO regardless of the market disruption post-Brexit.

    The Japanese firm is offering 13 million shares and 22 million shares in Japan and New York, respectively. An additional 5.25 million shares could be offered via a “green shoe” option, which enables the offering of more shares in case of exceptional demand.
