Financial Orbit wrap 18/12/15 & 19/12/15

Five sentences or graphics which sum up the Financial Orbit output over the last 24 48 hours across the website, twitter account and anything else thought about...

1. Japan - kind of a bit more QE by the BoJ as they extend maturity of JGB holdings they are purchasing to 7-12 years and establish New Program For ETF Purchases Adding JPY 300 Bln To Current Purchases eve if the formal QE at Y80trn per month unchanged.

And the reaction of the Nikkei? As I noted on Twitter:

'Nikkei turned out of +ve territory to be 1.7% lower after the BoJ’s surprise announcement' (via ). They needed a bigger QQE boat...

2. I wrote up the corporate numbers from the cruise ship operator Carnival observing:

3. The latest Financial Orbit Speaks was published:

4. Unsurprisingly I discuss the Fed decision above...but is or is there not US inflation?  I liked this chart via @jsblokland:


5. Finally, I noted on Twitter:

V interesting on the country that bosses around & on payoff historically required to change a country's name
