Australia, NZ dlrs higher ahead of key inflation data
  + stars: | 2021-10-26 | by ( Paulina Duran | ) www.reuters.com   time to read: +2 min
The Australian dollar crept up 0.27% to $0.7511, after rising to $0.7546 last week, its highest level since July 6. The New Zealand dollar was also a little higher at $0.7171, trading below last week’s four-month high of $0.7219, which was triggered by consumer prices rising at decade-high speed. Iron ore prices, Australia’s number one export earner, were higher in choppy trading on Tuesday. Bond yields were again higher, with New Zealand yields rising between 3 and 5 basis points at the short end of the curve, while yields at the longer end were flat. “That will be good for share prices and property – but bad for the Australian dollar.” (Reporting by Paulina Duran Editing by Robert Birsel)

Moves were slight as traders eye central bank meetings in Europe, Japan and Canada this week and data releases in Australia and the United States. “The dollar has been reversing lower because of a more risk- on market, and that’s due to earnings coming in better than expected,” said Bank of Singapore analyst Moh Siong Sim, while investors await data and central bank meetings for direction. Analysts expect it might stay there through a slew of central bank meetings in coming days. No changes are expected from the Bank of Japan, although Reuters has reported that policymakers are discussing an end to a COVID-19 loan scheme. Australian quarterly inflation data due on Wednesday is also likely to set the tone in a tussle between rates markets and the resolutely dovish Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA).

LONDON (Reuters) - Currency markets lacked clear direction in early European trading on Tuesday, with the dollar edging slightly higher but most major pairs little changed as investors looked ahead to central bank meetings this week. But the dollar index held steady, up less than 0.1% at 93.913 at 0739 GMT. The Australian dollar, seen as a liquid proxy for risk appetite, was steady at $0.7494. The euro was a touch lower against the dollar, down 0.1% at $1.1598, hit by expectations that the European Central Bank will take a dovish stance when it meets on Thursday. ING strategists noted that, so far in 2021, energy-exporting currencies whose central banks are preparing to tighten - such as the Canadian dollar or Norwegian crown - have outperformed.

Currency markets were broadly quiet at the start of the week with traders awaiting U.S. growth data and central bank meetings in the euro zone, Japan and Canada. Analysts said the dollar's rebound was also aided by the euro slipping 0.2% to $1.1625 ahead of the European Central Bank meeting on Thursday. Australian inflation data, due on Wednesday, is likely to set the tone for the next stage in a tussle between traders and a resolutely dovish central bank. Soaring housing costs and rising food and fuel prices have tapering in the frame when Canada's central bank meets on Wednesday.

The New Zealand dollar was steady at $0.7154, below last week’s four-month high of $0.7219. Bond markets steadied after selling through last week, with strong demand at Monday’s A$1 billion ($746 million) Australian government bond auction which was more than six times oversubscribed. Nevertheless, Australian interest rate markets remain positioned for a far more aggressive hiking path than the central bank expects and traders are closely watching inflation due out on Wednesday. The RBA has forecast that it would hold steady at about 1.75% through to December. New Zealand government bonds were broadly steady on Monday, as were Australian government bond futures, with the three-year bond contract flat at 99.065.

Australia plans to make social media companies obtain parental consent for users under the age of 16 and threaten fines of up to A$10 million ($7.5 million) for internet platforms which fail to comply, under draft legislation published on Monday. Social media companies, which include anonymous forums like Reddit and smartphone dating apps like Bumble, would also be required to take all reasonable steps to determine users' ages and prioritize children's interests when collecting data, the Online Privacy Bill said. "Our draft legislations means that these companies will be punished heavily if they don't meet that standard," she added. Assistant Minister for Mental Health and Suicide Prevention David Coleman said the "leak of Facebook's own internal research demonstrates the impact social media platforms can have on body image and the mental health of young people".

Dollar catches footing as inflation pressures rates outlook
  + stars: | 2021-10-25 | by ( ) www.cnbc.com   time to read: +3 min
On Monday, the dollar was firm at $1.1643 per euro and found a footing on the yen at 113.54 after Friday's slide. "Dollar risks remain skewed to the upside," said Kim Mundy, a currency analyst at the Commonwealth Bank of Australia in Sydney. On Thursday, U.S. growth data is expected to show a slowdown in growth as consumer confidence has faltered, but a surprise on either side might have consequences for the interest rate outlook. Also on Thursday the Bank of Japan and the European Central Bank meet. In emerging markets the beaten-down Turkish lira was braced for selling as state banks are expected to follow a surprise rate cut from the central bank.

REUTERS/Simon WattsOct 25 (Reuters) - New Zealand reported 109 new locally acquired coronavirus cases on Monday, the bulk of them in its largest city, Auckland, as the country saw its second-worst day of daily infections since the pandemic began. Once the poster child for stamping out COVID-19, New Zealand has been unable to beat an outbreak of Delta variant of COVID-19 centred in Auckland, despite the city remaining under a strict lockdown for more than two months. Last week, Ardern said New Zealand will end its strict lockdown measures and restore more freedoms only when 90% of its eligible population is fully vaccinated. The number of cases in the current outbreak reached 2,681 and New Zealand has recorded 28 coronavirus-related deaths so far in the pandemic.

Social media companies, which include anonymous forums like Reddit and smartphone dating apps like Bumble, would also be required to take all reasonsable steps to determine users' ages and prioritise children's interests when collecting data, the Online Privacy Bill said. The new proposed rules would put Australia among the most stringent countries in terms of age controls for social media, and build on efforts to rein in the power of Big Tech following mandatory licencing payments for media outlets and plans to toughen laws against online misinformation and defamation. "Our draft legislations means that these companies will be punished heavily if they don't meet that standard," she added.

REUTERS/Dado Ruvic/IllustrationSYDNEY, Oct 25 (Reuters) - A small Australian publisher is calling for the government to enforce a new law to compel Facebook Inc (FB.O) to negotiate a content deal, prompting the architect of the rule to say he was "concerned" about the social media giant's behaviour. The petition by academic publisher The Conversation, emailed to its readers at the weekend, reflects a groundswell of disquiet among smaller Australian outlets who have not reached deals with Facebook, as mandated by the new law. The U.S. internet giant and Alphabet Inc's (GOOGL.O) Google have been required since March to negotiate with Australian outlets for content that drives traffic, and advertising, to their websites. read more"The Conversation should not be treated differently to other media outlets," the publisher's editor, Misha Ketchell, said in the email to readers, seen by Reuters.

Turkey's lira fell to a fresh record low on Monday after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he was pursuing the expulsion of ten foreign ambassadors. The lira, having already hit a record low the previous week after Turkey's central bank cut its key interest rate despite growing inflation, is in for more pain if Erdogan continues on this path, analysts warned. Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, responsible for carrying out the order, has not yet commented on the matter. Erdogan's comments boosted fears of heightened tensions between the West and Turkey, hitting the already weak lira. "It goes without saying that the beleaguered Turkish Lira would fall under intense pressure, after setting various record lows over the past week," Teneo's Piccoli added.

The order has not yet been implemented by the Foreign Ministry but could be formally approved at Monday's meeting. They were summoned by the foreign ministry last week. Several embassies including the United States, Canada, Netherlands and New Zealand said on Monday they abided by the diplomatic convention not to interfere in a host country's internal affairs.

Turkey's President Tayyip Erdogan holds a news conference during the NATO summit at the Alliance's headquarters in Brussels, Belgium June 14, 2021. Turkey and its Western allies climbed down from a full-blown diplomatic crisis on Monday after foreign embassies said that they abide by diplomatic conventions on non-interference, averting a threatened expulsion of 10 ambassadors. "With a new statement made by the same embassies today, a step back was taken from this slander against our country and our nation. I believe these ambassadors ... will be more careful in their statements regarding Turkey's sovereign rights." "The United States notes that it maintains compliance with Article 41 of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations," the U.S. Embassy said on Twitter.

On Saturday, Erdogan said he had ordered the envoys be declared 'persona non grata' for seeking philanthropist Osman Kavala's release from prison. The lira hit a fresh all-time low in early Asian trade, weakening 1.6% to 9.75 per dollar in a move that bankers attributed to Erdogan's comments. Kemal Kilicdaroglu, leader of the main opposition CHP, said Erdogan was "rapidly dragging the country to a precipice". "Return at once to our real agenda and the fundamental problem of this country - the economic crisis." Erdogan said the envoys had failed to respect Turkey's judiciary and had no right to demand Kavala's release.

ISTANBUL — Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Saturday that he had ordered 10 foreign ambassadors who called for the release of a jailed philanthropist to be declared persona non grata. Describing the statement as an “impudence,” Erdogan said he had ordered the ambassadors be declared undesirable. “I gave the instruction to our foreign minister and said ‘You will immediately handle the persona non grata declaration of these 10 ambassadors,’” Erdogan said during a rally in the western city of Eskisehir.

A Rare Win in the Cat-and-Mouse Game of Ransomware
  + stars: | 2021-10-24 | by ( Nicole Perlroth | ) www.nytimes.com   time to read: +1 min
In a year rife with ransomware attacks, when cybercriminals have held the data of police departments, grocery and pharmacy chains, hospitals, pipelines and water treatment plants hostage with computer code, it was a win, rare in the scale of its success. For months, a team of security experts raced to help victims of a high-profile ransomware group quietly recover their data without paying their digital assailants a dime. It started in late summer, after the cybercriminals behind the Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack, known as DarkSide, emerged under a new name, BlackMatter. Soon after, the cybercriminals made a glaring mistake that most likely cost them tens, if not hundreds, of millions of dollars. Ransomware criminals encrypt a victim’s data and demand a ransom payment, sometimes millions of dollars, to return access.

The pandemic, paired with natural disasters, drives a record number of illegal U.S. border crossings. It was the highest number of illegal crossings recorded since at least 1960, when the government first began tracking such entries. Image The approval of the mix-and-match approach for coronavirus vaccine booster shots left Americans with many questions. Preliminary evidence strongly suggests that mixing two Covid vaccine types produces a stronger immune response than matching the booster to the initial vaccine. Booster doses of an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) seem to raise antibody levels higher than a booster dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
