    FTSE, DAX, CAC Called Up as GDP Figures Awaited

    Published: Wednesday, 15 Feb 2012 | 1:47 AM ET

    Staff Writer, CNBC.com

    European markets were expected to open slightly higher on Wednesday ahead of a number of important economic growth figures.

    France, Germany and Italy will all release preliminary fourth-quarter gross domestic product figures for 2011 Wednesday morning. The overall euro zone GDP figure, also released on Wednesday morning, is expected to show that the region's economy contracted in the last three months of 2011.
    Worries over Greece will continue to weigh the market after a key euro zone meeting on Greece's bailout was canceled Tuesday night.
    The Eurogroup of euro zone finance ministers has called off a planned face-to-face meeting on Wednesday, saying that the Greek government had not provided the required written commitments to push through its new austerity package.
    There will be a busy reporting day, with 2011 results from BNP Paribas, which will be watched for any indication of the health of the French banking system. Danone, Heineken and Clariant also report results.
    Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner defended President Barack Obama's tax cut plans, saying that corporate tax reform would end "dozens and dozens" of tax breaks for businesses.

    more good news:

    China central banker backs euro, vows more support
    Posted: 15 February 2012 1357 hrs

    BEIJING: China's top central banker Wednesday expressed confidence in the euro and pledged to continue buying European sovereign debt, as the Asian giant seeks to shore up support for its biggest trading partner.

    Central bank governor Zhou Xiaochuan also repeated remarks by Premier Wen Jiabao that China was ready to get more involved in efforts to resolve the eurozone debt crisis, which is hurting demand for its exports.

    "As Premier Wen Jiabao said yesterday at the China-EU summit, China will... continue to invest in European government bonds and will continue... to get more involved in solving the European debt crisis," Zhou said.

    "We have confidence in the euro," he added, during a speech at the opening of a euro exhibition in Beijing also attended by European Union president Herman Van Rompuy and European Commission president Jose Manuel Barroso.

    Wen told the European leaders on Tuesday that Beijing was considering using the International Monetary Fund and Europe's bailout funds to help address the continent's fiscal woes, without elaborating further.

    Van Rompuy said Wednesday that European leaders "highly value" China's confidence in the region and vowed to do everything necessary to "maintain the euro and the financial stability of the eurozone".

    China has made clear its growing concerns over the crisis in Europe, repeatedly urging EU leaders to get a grip on the situation, which the foreign ministry said this week had reached a "critical juncture".

    Barroso said Europe was "putting our house in order" but noted it was a long process.

    "This is a marathon not a sprint," he said Wednesday.

    European leaders last year approached China, which holds the world's largest foreign exchange reserves, to invest in a bailout fund to rescue debt-stricken states.

    So far China has made no firm commitment, but Zhou said Wednesday that the Asian powerhouse had not reduced the proportion of its investments in euro-denominated assets during the crisis.

    "We believe that so long as all the European nations can solidify themselves together they will have the ability to solve the problems they face," Zhou said.

    STI breaches 3,000 mark
    By Millet Enriquez | Posted: 15 February 2012 1340 hrs

    SINGAPORE: Singapore's Straits Times Index (STI) breached the 3,000 level on Wednesday for the first time since August 2011.

    The benchmark overcame a bout of early selling, setting a positive course after the first 35 minutes of trade.

    It reached a high of 3,014.76 by 11am, a gain of 0.9 per cent.

    By mid-day, the STI was trading 0.68 per cent higher at 3,007.80, with a gain of 20.39 points. Among the biggest movers are commodity stocks Golden Agri and Noble Group.

    "The STI is proving to be a resilient market as investor attitude to risk improves off the back of a rosier outlook for the global economy, particularly in the US," said Justin Harper, Head of Research at IG Markets Singapore.

    Signs of the STI breaking through the 3,000 mark had been eminent since late last week, "but the failure to agree on the Greek debt deal spooked markets globally on Friday," Mr Harper said.

    With the Greek issue gaining some degree of stability, the STI has climbed for three straight days. It is 13 per cent higher for 2012.

    In a February 15 report, CIMB upgraded its call for STI to Trading Buy, from Underweight and set a first-half 2012 target to 3,340. For 2013, it raised its STI target to 2,865.

    The brokerage said "markets are no longer concerned with a banking crisis; the challenges from an economic slowdown are deemed less catastrophic."
