Jobs, Jobs, Jobs, and the UK Election http://ow.ly/MGTyV
The polls proved wide of the mark. While we had detected a break toward the Tories over the past week, the results were stunning. The Tories appear to have won half the 650 seats.  Most of the contested seats swung to the Conservatives. They picked up seats from the Lib-Dems and Labour.

What Would 'Unconventional Monetary Policy' from the PBOC Look Like? http://ow.ly/MhP3b
Press reports suggest that the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) is considering unconventional monetary policies, including direct purchases of local government bonds and/or some sort of long-term refinancing operation (LTRO) using local government bonds as collateral.  While there is no universal definition of QE, we make the distinction that the former (direct bond purchases) are unconventional measures, while the latter (long-term liquidity inject...

A Tightening Natural Gas Market May Signal a Price Turnaround http://ow.ly/Mh5FQ
Last Friday we finally received confirmation of where all the natural gas supply has been coming from as Cabot (COG) reported its earnings. Just like Chesapeake (CHK), they reduced natural gas output, but on a much grander scale. CHK has yet to report and will do so on May 6 providing even more color on the subject.

The Importance of 'Fast-Track' Authority to the TPP and TTIP http://ow.ly/MfuR8
The Senate Finance Committee is currently considering a trade bill that would extend “fast-track” negotiating authority to the president while also demanding a larger role for Congress than it has taken in the past.

Japan's Abe Moves Closer to His Ultimate Goal for the JA http://ow.ly/MhGP1
The Abe administration’s policy of separating the organisational interests of JA-Zenchu, the peak body of agricultural cooperatives (JA), from the interests of the prefectural central unions (chūōkai) and local cooperatives and farmers generally paid off in April’s local government elections.

Taiwan's Growth Carries it to Front of the Pack for Asian Economic Expansion http://ow.ly/MhfQQ
For the fourth straight quarter, Taiwan has leapt ahead of other Asian economies in terms of expansion. Expected first-quarter report results should demonstrate growth of about 3.5 percent, according to a report by Bloomberg News. That would put it at least one full percentage point ahead of South Korea, Singapore, and Hong Kong. As such, Taiwan may become the model by which other economies, particularly around Asia, measure their own success.

The FOMC Meeting Begins, and the Market Waits http://ow.ly/MgZeg
The US dollar has yet to stabilize against the euro and sterling, although it has steadied against the dollar-bloc currencies and yen.  The euro bid through the $1.10 level on the back of stronger month supply growth and the first growth in private credit in two years.  After finishing yesterday's North American session on its highs, fully recovering from the disappointing Q1 GDP, sterling has extended its gains to $1.54.  Since the April 13 low ...

'Economic-Only' vs. 'Economic-Plus-Political' EU Membership http://ow.ly/MfsbR
In the last five years, austerity has undermined our public services, lowered the living standards of working people, pushed more children into poverty and held back economic growth.
