Top Market Segment to Watch Out Today:
Toyota Motor Corp.: Toyota Motor Corp said on Wednesday it has begun assembling cars at a new plant in Myanmar whose start was put on hold for more than 19 months after a military coup and during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Japanese automaker said the plant, which is opening even as other companies have pulled out of the country, has begun to assemble one or two vehicles a day, working from parts kits shipped to Myanmar in September.
US: The U.S. is scrambling to tackle unintended consequences of its new export curbs on China’s chip industry that could inadvertently harm the semiconductor supply chain, people familiar with the matter said.
By late Tuesday, hours before a new restriction took effect, South Korean memory chipmaker SK Hynix Inc said it got authorization from the United States to receive goods for its chip production facilities in China without additional licensing imposed by the new rules.
The Biden administration had planned to spare foreign companies operating in China such as SK Hynix and Samsung Electronics (OTC:SSNLF) Co from the brunt of new restrictions, but the rules published Friday did not exempt such firms.
As published, the rules require licenses before U.S. exports can be shipped to facilities with advanced chip production in China as part of a U.S. bid to slow China’s technological and military advances.
Euro Zone: The European Central Bank should start shrinking its balance sheet once its interest rate is close to 2%, first by getting banks to repay their loans and then by whittling down its bond holdings, ECB policymaker Francois Villeroy de Galhau said on Tuesday.
Trying to fight runaway prices, the ECB has raised its rate on bank deposits to 0.75%, promised more hikes and begun a debate about mopping up excess liquidity from the banking system – legacy of its fight against deflation in the last decade.
Villeroy said it was too early to say whether the ECB should raise that rate by 50 or 75 basis points at its Oct. 27 meeting.
But he reaffirmed the rate should be at its neutral level — or “a bit less than 2%” — before the end of the year, paving the way for the ECB to shrink its balance sheet.
Then Villeroy said the ECB could begin not replacing some of the maturing bonds that it has bought under its 3.3 trillion-euro ($3.20 trillion) Asset Purchase Programme during the last seven years – when inflation was too low.
