(GulfBase.com) International  US Fed set to drop threshold guidance under Yellen – Janet Yellen's first policy-setting meeting as the chair person of the US Federal Reserve will focus on how to fine tune the central bank's promise in order to keep interest rates low without roiling financial markets. Fed policymakers are expected to decide next week to scrap their threshold of a 6.5% unemployment rate used for considering a rate rise, and instead embrace new language that is less specific about when tighter policy might come. The threshold has been a staple of the central bank's „forward guidance‟ since December 2012, when it was first adopted to underscore a commitment to stimulate the US economy until it was on surer footing. However, the US unemployment rate has come down at a surprising speed, and now stands at 6.7%, leaving Fed officials anxious to adopt a new guidance in line with their view that the economy won't be ready for higher rates for some time to come. (Reuters)  EU ministers hold line on bank failures as ECB sees risks – European finance ministers made a few concessions to break a deadlock on a bank-failure bill, since the European Central Bank (ECB) warned that failure to enact it would hinder efforts to combat fragmentation of the financial sector. At the end of talks in Brussels, ministers identified six areas for possible compromise in talks with the European Parliament on the Single Resolution Mechanism legislation. However, details of new room for maneuver were in short supply as meetings wrapped up, and the consensus was that the parliament would need to cede ground for a deal to get done. (Bloomberg)  ONS: UK manufacturing output grows more than forecast – Factory production in the UK rose more than forecast in January 2014, adding to evidence for a broadening recovery.

Industrial production, which includes utilities and mines, rose 0.1% – less than the 0.2% forecast – as bad weather hit oil & gas output. Meanwhile, the Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said a recovery is under way in the UK, though investment and exports need to keep growing for it to be sustained. Officials have pledged to hold the key interest rate at a record low of 0.5% at least until unemployment falls to 7% (now at 7.2%). (Bloomberg)  PBoC ready to cut bank reserves if growth falters – According to sources, China's central bank is prepared to take its strongest action since 2012 to loosen its monetary policy if economic growth slows further, by cutting the amount of cash that banks must keep as reserves. A cut would be triggered if growth slips below 7.5% and toward 7.0%. Apart from supporting a stumbling economy, the stronger action of cutting bank reserves would provide a cushion against any shocks from financial reforms that the People's Bank of China (PBoC) is widely expected to push through this year, including a widening of the Yuan's trading band to give the currency more room to rise or fall each day and allowing banks more room to set deposit rates.
