According to data provider CMA, five-year credit default swaps insuring Qatari debt declined nine basis points since December 1 to 58 basis points January 07.

(GulfTimes.com) International  US Fed’s members want cautious approach to QE tapering – The US Federal Reserve's top officials debated their decision to scale back the massive bond-buying quantitative easing (QE) program last month, and they were keen to steer a delicate path. Minutes of the Fed’s December 17-18 policy meeting showed many members of the Federal Open Market Committee wanted to proceed with caution in trimming down its asset purchases. Most members wanted to stress that further reductions were not on a preset course. At that meeting, the US central bank decided to cut purchases by $10bn, bringing them to $75bn per month. Even at that pace the QE program is still an aggressive effort to clear the way for investment, hiring and economic growth in the United States. (Reuters)  Consumer credit in US increases on non-revolving debt – Consumer borrowing in the US increased in November, reflecting a gain in non-revolving debt such as student and auto loans. The Federal Reserve said the $12.3bn advance followed a revised $17.9bn rise the previous month. (Bloomberg)  China tells banks to improve disclosures in shadow-lending fight – China’s banking regulator has told lenders to publish data including off-balance-sheet assets and interbank liabilities as the government steps up scrutiny of the shadow-finance industry.

CBRC said the requirement is in line with rules published by the Basel Committee on international banking regulation in July. (Bloomberg)  China’s producer prices extend drop in sign of weakness – China’s producer prices extended the longest slide since the 1990s in December, adding to evidence that its economy weakened last month. According to government reports, the producer-price index (SHCOMP) fell 1.4% from a year before, the 22nd straight drop, and consumer-price gains trailed estimates at 2.5%. (Bloomberg)  China’s inflation hits seven-month low – China's annual consumer inflation slowed more sharply than expected to a seven-month low of 2.5% in December, easing market fears of tighter monetary policy rates. The drop in inflation last month, from November's 3%, was sharper than a fall to the 2.7% rate expected by the market, slowed by volatile food costs. However, rising money market rates and bond yields indicate that the People's Bank of China is tightening liquidity conditions to reduce debt levels and contain credit growth. However, there is little sign of a sharp turnaround in its policy stance. (ET) Regional  E&Y: Gulf private healthcare providers should raise capital through IPOs – According to a report by Ernst & Young (E&Y), private healthcare providers based in the Gulf should consider raising capital through IPOs as the healthcare expenditure as a proportion to the region’s GDP still remains low. The report said recent IPO of several healthcare facilities have set a precedent and more are to follow in the coming years. Numerous new facilities are planned in almost all the GCC region countries. The report added that the healthcare spending in the GCC region, which has the potential to become a hub for medical tourism, is expected to grow 11.4% until 2015, based on demographic and macroeconomic factors. With programs such as mandatory insurance, there is an increasing reliance on the private healthcare sector and well-established facilities are expanding rapidly to create capacity for their growing markets. The report said one way of doing this is by way of an IPO and raising capital for expansion.

(GulfBase.com)  Saudi Aramco to skip diesel term imports on delivered basis – According to sources, Saudi Aramco will skip diesel term imports on a delivered basis, removing a huge chunk of demand from the Asian and Middle East oil markets and potentially reducing refinery margins. The company is skipping term imports of diesel on a delivered basis this year for the first time after years of contracts with sellers to import at least about 2.2mn to 3mn barrels a month of the oil product. Cargoes chartered on a delivered basis mean the seller usually pays the freight charges to deliver cargoes to the buyer. Aramco might instead focus on tying up term contracts on a free-on-board basis with sellers like India-based Reliance Industries, though this is not certain and overall term volumes will be much less than past years. (GulfBase.com)  UAE’s loan growth set to rise 10% in 2014 – According to Standard & Poor's (S&P), loan growth in the UAE is set to jump at least 10% in 2014 as an increase in bank deposits drives down borrowing costs.

The UAE central bank’s data showed that customer deposits at 51 banks in the UAE rose 11% in the 12 months through September, the highest since 2008.
