The central bank left out two controversial elements of the original proposal. Part of the proposal that established limits on banks’ exposures to single parties was held back because the Fed is still working on how to define them for US firms. Another planned change, which would have set an additional capital buffer above the standard requirements, also was left out. (Bloomberg)  US concerned about Japan domestic demand outlook – The US expressed concern about whether domestic demand will remain a principal driver of the Japanese economy.

(ADX)  Moody's: Omani banking system outlook stable – Moody’s Investors Service stated that the outlook for the banking system in Oman remains stable, reflecting the country favorable operating environment underpinned by high oil prices and increased government spending. The rating agency expects stable macroeconomic conditions to support low levels of nonperforming loans (NPLs), sound liquidity buffers, healthy levels of capitalization and earnings. These supportive factors will continue to offset potential shocks from an unexpected drop in oil prices and risks stemming from high borrower concentrations, opacity surrounding local conglomerates and real-estate sector exposures. Moody's expects Oman's real GDP to expand by 4.3% in 2014. Relatively high oil prices will fuel the government's ability to increase spending, stimulating the nonoil sectors and the banking sector over the 12-18 month outlook period. Moody's said that stable macroeconomic conditions will lead to credit growth of around 10-12% in nominal terms in 2014.
