Shares in Japan tumble as investors worry about the global economy

Shares in Japan sold off sharply on Monday as investors grappled with concerns over the global economy.

The Nikkei 225 plunged 3.01 percent to close at 20,977.11, as shares of index heavyweights Softbank Group and Fanuc plummeted 5.01 percent and 3.84 percent, respectively. The Topix index also fell 2.45 percent to finish its trading day at 1,577.41.

That followed a sell-off on Wall Street Friday, as an inverted yield curve stoked fears that an economic recession is on the horizon. Disappointing economic data released Friday out of Europe, coupled with an economic downgrade by the Federal Reserve, added to those concerns.

The spread between the 3-month Treasury bill and the 10-year note turned negative on Friday — the first time in more than a decade. Investors consider this to be a signal that a recession may be coming soon.

At present, the central bank balance sheets among the G3 economies — the U.S., Japan and the European Union — are “bloated,” they said. As a result, the difference in yield between holding a long-term bond versus a series of short-term debt was suppressed.

“However, this should not detract from the fact that the slowdown across the developed markets is deepening. While the US economy still seems to be on firm footing, guarding against downside risks has become the Fed’s main priority (as opposed to policy normalisation). The Fed’s dovish pivot over the past few months should help to cushion slowdown risks,” they said.

Bank shares in Tokyo struggled on Monday, with Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group falling more than 3 percent and Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group declining 2.91 percent.

Surprise and suspicion in Thailand as pro-military party leads election race

Surprise and suspicion in Thailand as pro-military party leads election race

A party linked to Thailand’s military led the popular vote after most ballots had been counted from Sunday’s general election, the country’s first since a 2014 coup, giving it a surprise advantage over anti-junta parties hoping to make a comeback.

Unofficial results will be announced on Monday afternoon, so it is still not certain that the Palang Pracharat party backing junta chief Prayuth Chan-ocha will have enough lower house of parliament seats for him to stay on as prime minister.

Pheu Thai, a party linked to the self-exiled former premier Thaksin Shinawatra whose loyalists have won every election since 2001, fell short of expectations that it would outdistance the military’s proxy party. However, it still looked likely to have the largest share of parliament seats.

The strong showing by the pro-junta party dismayed voters who had hoped the poll would loosen the grip that traditional elites and the military have long held on power in a country that has one of the highest measures of inequality in the world.

Many took to social media to voice their suspicions about the results of an election which critics had said was skewed in favor of the military from the outset.

Thai-language hashtags that translated as “Election Commission screw-up” and “cheating the election” were trending at numbers one and three on Twitter in Thailand.

Many tweets referred to inconsistencies between the numbers for voter turnout and ballots cast in some parliamentary constituencies, and some questioned the overall turnout of less than 70 percent, which was much lower than expected.

Asia is resilient and can bounce back in the face of challenges, says Credit Suisse regional CEO

The Asia Pacific CEO of Credit Suisse is bullish on Asia’s growth.

“I’m very excited about the region … the entrepreneurs are very resilient, the people are resilient — hardworking, and I think that’s the biggest asset that the region has to continue to grow,” Helman Sitohang told CNBC at the Credit Suisse Asian investment Conference in Hong Kong on Monday.

“One thing which is very exciting about the region is the ability to adapt, to really adjust to the changes etc., and then come back,” Sitohang said. “The region has resilience of the people, the resilience of the entrepreneurs, to adapt.”

He says the region’s adaptability is whyso many entrepreneurs have been flocking to its shores. According to Sitohang, Asia is home to the highest number of entrepreneurs.

Asked if there were opportunities for Asia in the ongoing trade conflict between the U.S. and China, Sitohang said: “In every shift of resources, there’s always somebody that will benefit.”

He said Southeast Asia would likely be a beneficiary.

“I don’t think it’s a loss for China either as well, because China obviously has other parts that they can contribute and also adapt, and the country has amazingly been able to continue to grow at a strong pace,” Sitohang added.

Fed’s rate pause is an ‘opportunity’ for Indonesia to spur growth, says its finance minister

The Federal Reserve’s pause in interest rate hikes is a relief for many emerging economies, and represents an opportunity for Indonesia to accelerate growth, the Asian country’s finance minister told CNBC on Monday. “For us … this is an opportunity to actually accelerate the growth, but we really have to be very careful,” Sri Mulyani Indrawati told CNBC at the Credit Suisse Asian Investment Conference in Hong Kong.

Fed's rate pause is an 'opportunity' for Indonesia to spur growth, says its finance minister

The Federal Reserve’s pause in interest rate hikes is a relief for many emerging economies, and represents an opportunity for Indonesia to accelerate growth, the Asian country’s finance minister told CNBC on Monday.

“For us … this is an opportunity to actually accelerate the growth, but we really have to be very careful,” Sri Mulyani Indrawati told CNBC at the Credit Suisse Asian Investment Conference in Hong Kong.

“Because this pause in increasing rates is also showing that the global economy environment is not good. So we really have to be very careful in seeing this signal,” she added.

The U.S. central bank surprised investors by adopting a sharp dovish stance last Wednesday, projecting no further interest rate hikes this year, and justifying its more temperate outlook by cutting 2019 growth outlook for the world’s largest economy.

Meanwhile, a raft of weak economic data around the world also stoked recession fears.

Germany’s manufacturing activity dropped to its lowest level in more than six years in March, according to data from IHS Markit; while in the euro zone as a whole, manufacturing fell to its lowest level since April 2013.

The halt in rate hikes — and the Fed signalling in January that it will be “patient” with monetary policy — is “relieving pressure” for many emerging economies, Sri Mulyani said. That’s especially welcome for Indonesia, Southeast Asia’s largest economy, as it suffers from capital outflows, she said.

Look for Thailand’s next government to be a coalition, senior official says

Look for Thailand's next government to be a coalition, senior official says

It’s “quite likely” that Thailand’s next government will be formed through a coalition, a senior government official told CNBC on Monday, as initial tallies came following Sunday’s long-awaited election after five years of military rule.

Panitan Wattanayagorn, a security advisor to Thai Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan, said that officials in the pro-military Palang Pracharat Party and Pheu Thai Party — linked to self-exiled former premier Thaksin Shinawatra — are in discussions and also “talking to all parties.”

Speaking to CNBC’s Sri Jegarajah in Bangkok, Panitan said: “It seems quite likely that the next government will be a coalition party between one big party and maybe two important, medium-sized parties.”

The vote is shaping up as a contest between three groups:

A pro-military camp that includes the Palang Pracharat Party — led by current cabinet members in the military regime.

An anti-military group that comprises the Pheu Thai Party and the newly founded Future Forward Party.

Parties that are neutral or undecided about how they will align themselves.

The last group includes the Bhumjaithai Party, whose vote is said to be crucial to swinging the election’s final outcome.

Panitan, who is also a professor at the Chulalongkorn University, said: “It seems quite likely that Bhumjaithai will be a decisive force.”

“The final analysis is whoever gains the majority of the seats will form the government,” he added, “so Bhumjaithai will be very hard at work today and over the next few days to make sure that they coordinate and communicate with all supporters.”

His comments come as Thailand’s Election Commission reported the numbers on Monday with 94 percent of votes counted: Palang Pracharat was leading the popular vote with 7.69 million votes, while the Pheu Thai Party was next with 7.23 million votes.

The numbers released were for the popular vote, but those do not reflect parliamentary seats won. Pheu Thai could still take the lion’s share of those, because of its concentrated popularity in the north and northeast of the country.

The ruling junta repeatedly postponed general elections after it overthrew an elected government in 2014.

The Sunday vote will determine 500 members of the House of Representatives, the lower chamber of Thailand’s legislative branch. The junta will appoint the 250-member Senate, or the upper house.

None of the parties are expected to single-handedly win enough seats in the House to form a government. Therefore, the 250 appointed senators will join their colleagues in the House to select the next prime minister to lead the next government.

Based on a Reuters tally of partial results of the 350 constituency seats contested on Sunday, Pheu Thai was on track to win at least 129 and Palang Pracharat at least 102.

— CNBC’s Yen Nee Lee and Reuters contributed to this report.

Trump’s ‘inconsistency’ undermines faith in administration, says former defense chief William Cohen

“I think most countries would like to have some level of predictable and continuity — and the president seems to thrive on not being predictable.” The U.S. Treasury Department blacklisted two Chinese companies on Thursday, saying they helped North Korea dodge U.S. and international sanctions. Those measures are aimed at pressuring North Korea to dismantle its nuclear and missile programs. The president’s tweet led many to conclude he was overturning Thursday’s sanctions on the Chinese companies.

Trump's 'inconsistency' undermines faith in administration, says former defense chief William Cohen

“I think most countries would like to have some level of predictable and continuity — and the president seems to thrive on not being predictable.”

The U.S. Treasury Department blacklisted two Chinese companies on Thursday, saying they helped North Korea dodge U.S. and international sanctions. Those measures are aimed at pressuring North Korea to dismantle its nuclear and missile programs.

But in a move that surprised and confused many, Trump tweeted on Friday: “It was announced today by the U.S. Treasury that additional large scale Sanctions would be added to those already existing Sanctions on North Korea. I have today ordered the withdrawal of those additional Sanctions!”

The president’s tweet led many to conclude he was overturning Thursday’s sanctions on the Chinese companies. However, some media reports indicated that Trump might have been referring to future sanctions.

The White House has not responded to CNBC’s request for clarification, which was sent outside office hours on Sunday.

“If you can have the Secretary of Treasury impose sanctions to be reversed by the president the next day, that causes, I think, some question about our reliability coming out of the administration,” said Cohen, who’s now chairman and CEO of consulting firm The Cohen Group.

Fed's Charles Evans says US economy is slowing but downplays recession

HONG KONG — Chicago Federal Reserve President Charles Evans says the U.S. economy has slowed, but he downplayed chances of a recession.

Concerns about an inverted yield curve — an important recession indicator — spooked U.S. financial markets on Friday. An inverted yield curve occurs when short-term rates surpass their longer-term counterparts.

Addressing the markets’ reaction, Evans told CNBC at the Credit Suisse Asian Investment Conference: “I think we have to be a little bit nervous obviously.”

“Whenever the yield curve gets flat, we see growth decelerating and, like I say, I’m looking for almost 2 percent growth this year. That sounds kind of low but it’s actually relative to trend of one-and-three-quarters, it’s a good growth rate,” he told CNBC’s Nancy Hungerford and Emily Tan in Hong Kong on Monday.

“I think anytime the economy decelerates from 3.1 percent down to 2 percent, it takes a really sharp-minded focus to kind of go, ‘All right, it’s less than what we had but it’s still pretty good,'” he added.

Earlier, Evans told a panel at the conference that the world’s largest economy remains robust. “I look at the nature of the U.S economy, I look at the labor market, it’s strong, the consumer continues to be strong,” he said.
