Japan’s Q3 GDP revised down to 3.6 percent annualised contraction

The Japanese economy shrank 3.6 percent in the third quarter, worse than the initial estimate of a 3.0 percent contraction, revised government data showed on Wednesday, posting a decline as private spending took a hit from a resurgence in COVID-19.

The revised figure for gross domestic product (GDP) released by the Cabinet Office compared with economists’ median forecast for a 3.1 percent contraction in a Reuters poll.

On a quarter-on-quarter basis, the GDP fell 0.9 percent, slightly worse than the initial reading and median forecast for a 0.8 percent drop.

Oil-to-telecom conglomerate Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) on December 7 announced the launch of a strategic joint venture with Abu Dhabi Chemicals Derivatives Company RSC Ltd (TA’ZIZ) for chemical projects worth $2 billion in Ruwais, a town located 240 km to the west of Abu Dhabi City.

The new joint-venture will construct and operate a Chlor-Alkali, Ethylene Dichloride (EDC) and Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) production facility, with an investment of more than $2 billion,” RIL said in a statement. The joint venture, named ‘TA’ZIZ EDC & PVC’, will be a “world-scale chemical production partnership” at the TA’ZIZ Industrial Chemicals Zone in Ruwais.

US trade deficit shrinks as exports hit record high

The US trade deficit narrowed sharply in October as exports soared to a record high, potentially setting up trade to contribute to economic growth this quarter for the first time in more than a year.

The commerce department said on Tuesday that the trade gap plunged 17.6 percent to $67.1 billion. That was the biggest percentage decline since April 2015. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast a $66.8 billion deficit.

Oil edge lower as investors try to assess Omicron impact

Oil prices edged lower on Wednesday, reversing gains from earlier the week, as investors tried to assess the full impact of the Omicron coronavirus variant on global fuel demand and the effectiveness of existing vaccines.

Brent crude futures dropped 25 cents, or 0.3 percent, to $75.19 a barrel at 0129 GMT, after settling 3.2 percent higher on Tuesday. US West Texas Intermediate crude was at $71.86 a barrel, down 19 cents, or 0.3 percent, having gained 3.7 percent in the previous session.

Gold inches higher as US Treasury yields ease

Gold prices rose slightly on Wednesday as US Treasury yields eased from their recent highs, reducing the metal’s opportunity cost, while investors looked ahead to key inflation data that could settle the course of interest rates.

Spot gold rose 0.1 percent to $1,785.48 per ounce. Benchmark 10-year and 30-year US Treasury yields pulled back from their one-week highs hit on Tuesday.
