Concerns about worsening global oil demand drove crude prices lower after Saudi Arabia cut the official selling prices of its crude to all buyers. Oil prices also fell on a ShippingWatch report that some shipping companies have struck a deal with Houthi rebels to allow their ships to pass safely through the Red Sea, which could reduce supply disruptions.Asian markets were mostly down on Monday. Japan’s Nikkei 225 (JP225) gained 0.27% for the day, China’s FTSE China A50 (CHA50) fell by 1.14%, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng (HK50) ended the day down by 1.88%, and Australia’s ASX 200 (AU200) ended the trading day negative by 0.50%.Chinese authorities said they plan to reduce the amount of money banks must set aside in reserves to stimulate lending. The Central Bank will also strengthen counter-cyclical and inter-cyclical policy adjustments to create a favorable financial environment for the country’s economic growth. Traders are raising bets on further monetary easing this year as a weak economic recovery forces authorities to cut interest rates and provide ample liquidity.The Bank of Japan (BoJ) said it will cut its monthly purchases of ultra-long government bonds, a reminder that it may still go for a reduction in stimulus to the economy this year. Market bets indicate traders still expect the Bank of Japan to end its negative interest rate policy later this year, although speculation that it will do so this month has largely subsided. Data released on Tuesday showed that consumer price growth in Tokyo slowed for a second month in December, which also eased pressure on the BOJ. Currently, overnight index swaps indicate that the Central Bank will end its negative rate policy in July this year, although as recently as two weeks ago, it was supposed to happen in April.
