STORYLINE:

Japan's benchmark stock index rose sharply on Wednesday morning following an emergency interest rate cut by the US Federal Reserve on Tuesday.

The benchmark Nikkei index gained 421.27 points, or 3.35 per cent, to end morning trade at 12,994.32 points on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.

Stock prices rebounded as investors welcomed the Fed's larger-than-expected 0.75 percentage point rate cut, which also prompted the dollar's gains against the yen, traders said.

Many investors looked for bargains following sharp losses earlier this week.

The index plunged 752.89 points, or 5.7 per cent on Tuesday over fears about a US recession and a possible global slowdown, closing at 12,573.05, its lowest finish since September 8, 2005.

Japanese Finance Minister Fukushiro Nukaga welcomed Wednesday's stock gains in Tokyo and said that the US Federal Reserve rate cut would help Japanese market recovery.

Banking issues, including Mizuho Financial Group and Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Mitsubishi UFJ, as well as blue chips such as Toyota Motor, Canon an TDK, led the morning gains.

The US Federal Reserve's rate cut Tuesday gave Wall Street a partial rebound from a precipitous early decline.

The Dow Jones industrial average, down 465 points shortly after trading began, bounced around throughout the session before closing with a milder drop of 128.11, or 1.06 per cent, at 11,971.19.

Japan's broader Topix index, which includes all shares on the Tokyo exchange's first section, was up 45.27 points, or 3.71

percent, at 1,265.20 points. The Topix had lost 5.7 per cent on Tuesday to 1,219.95.

In currencies, the dollar bought 106.90 yen at late morning in Tokyo, up from 106.48 yen late Tuesday in New York.

The euro rose to 1.4636 from 1.4612 US dollars.

STORYLINE:

Greece on Wednesday woke up to the first business day of the new euro currency.

In Athens, customers queued at banks to exchange their money and shopkeepers opened their doors after the new year's holiday to begin trading in euros.

Twelve European countries adopted the new currency on January the 1st, giving up currencies that held a place in the history and hearts of the countries and their people.

But it is Greece's drachmas which are the oldest currency of those soon to be discarded in favour of the new euro notes and coins.

The Greek drachma has a history which reaches back 2,600 years.

But as nostalgia for the drachma diminishes, anticipation rises that the new currency may help boost Greece's economy.

Euro membership is hugely popular in Greece, with polls suggesting that nearly two-thirds of the population are in favour of the move.

STORYLINE

The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund on Sunday concluded a series of meetings saying their priority was to find ways wealthy nations could help developing countries meet their energy needs while protecting the environment.

The head of the World Bank, Paul Wolfowitz, said the bank''s development committee would discuss "options for increasing investments to help developing countries meet their energy needs while leaving a smaller environmental footprint".

Wolfowitz, an architect of the US-led invasion of Iraq, said there was an enormous need for energy in the developing world, where nearly one point six billion (b) people do not have access to electricity.

They''re also assessing a report examining how the international development community could reinforce good government practices and fight corruption.

Since taking over as bank president a year ago after serving as US deputy defence secretary, Wolfowitz has emphasised the need to fight corruption and has held up bank loans to several countries until they become more accountable.

On the world economy, the bank was expected to join in the assessment of the IMF and the Group of Seven industrialised countries that economic policy-makers need to remain vigilant against inflation and risks posed by rising oil prices, skewed trade and investment and bird flu.

The finance ministers and central bank governments gave the IMF, the world''s financial watchdog, the green light to remake the 184-nation institution so it can better prevent and cope with crises.

One suggested change would mean stronger policing of countries'' exchange-rate practices and expanding the IMF''s monitoring to emerging powers such Asia.

That is of key importance to the United States, which has a record 202 billion (b) dollars trade deficit with China.

The Bush administration long has prodded Beijing to let its currency float more freely with market forces.

"There is general panic today because some markets have lost up to 8%, including Paris. This reflects the variations we've seen recently, especially in Asia overnight. Yesterday the American market lost 5% so I think we are completely in a crisis of confidence. Whatever the measures that are being announced, whatever the rescue plans, I would say that the more these plans are important and frequent, the more it feeds the spiral of pessimism because people say 'if there are so many plans, the situation must be really bad' and that is what brings the markets down."

STORYLINE:

European markets tumbled in early trading on Wednesday amid ongoing fears about the state of credit markets despite the British government's 50 (b) billion pound (87.5 (b) billion US dollar) rescue package for the banking system.

The results seemed to be in line with similar falls in Asia, where Japan's Nikkei suffered its worst day since the 1987 stock market crash.

A meltdown in confidence strangled Asian stock markets on accelerating fears that the widening financial crisis could spawn a global recession.

Across Europe, banking stocks were among the biggest losers with Credit Suisse AG, BNP Paribas SA and Societe Generale some of the worst hit.

By mid-morning London time, Germany's DAX was down 323.99, or 6.1 percent, at 5,002.64.

Dirk Mueller, trader for MWB Fair Trade said the mood was very tense, and traders were getting little sleep because of what he described as a 24 hour world financial crisis.

France's CAC-40 index was 229.33 points, or 6.1 percent, lower at 3,502.89.

In France, the selling tide was so huge that the Paris stock exchange briefly suspended calculating the benchmark CAC-40 index amid a massive influx of sell orders that caused it to plummet nearly 8.2 percent at one stage.

Orders passed a threshold of 35 percent of the total market value of the 40 blue-chip stocks that make up the index, triggering an automatic halt in the calculation under exchange rules, a spokeswoman for the Paris exchange said.

Nathalie Pelras, head of Asset Management, Richelieu Finance said there was general panic on Wednesday because some markets have lost up to 8%, including Paris.

Russia's MICEX index dropped more than 14 percent in the first half-hour of trading Wednesday.

Most of Russia's trading takes place at Moscow's MICEX stock exchange, and officials subsequently announced that it was shutting until Friday after it opened with steep losses.

MICEX Spokesman, Alexei Gerasyuk, said certain rules regulating the functions of the stock exchange obliged officials to stop trading until the end of the next trading day or until a corresponding decision is made by the regulating agency.

Russia's oil-fuelled economy saw its stocks hurtle lower on the back of falling oil prices and concerns about the depth of the financial and economic woes in Europe and the US, contributing to the worst-ever day of trading for Russian shares on Monday.

With market confidence draining away across the global financial system, there is increasing talk that the world's leading central banks will announce coordinated rate reductions this week.

STORYLINE:

Tokyo stocks fell on Wednesday as investors were gripped by fears over a prolonged credit crunch stemming from the US subprime mortgage market meltdown.

The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average lost 73.39 points, or 0.58 percent, from Tuesday to 12,681.17, Japanese news agency Kyodo reported.

The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange was down 11.19 points, or 0.89 percent, to 1,241.93.

Mining and trading house issues were among the main losers, while forestry and fishery, pulp and paper, and air transport stocks led gainers.

The Tokyo market started weak but selling was soon offset by bargain-hunting, brokers said. Tokyo stocks on Tuesday closed sharply lower, sending the key Nikkei index to a three-month closing low.

But the advance tapered off as uncertainty in the US financial sector, reinforced by the recent US action to rescue troubled US mortgage finance giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, continued to weigh on investor sentiment, brokers said.

According to Kyodo, The Tokyo market was also dragged down by concerns not only about the economic outlook of the United States but of Japan as well.

The Bank of Japan Governor Masaaki Shirakawa said on Tuesday that the Japanese economy is further slowing and the central bank downgraded its forecast for the country's economic growth for the current fiscal year amid inflation concerns.

In Hong Kong meanwhile trade was down slightly on Wednesday, as investors remained cautious about the financial situation in the US.

The benchmark Heng Seng Index lost 186.03 points, or 0.88 percent, to open at 20,988.74 points.

The financial blue chips were mixed in the morning market.

HSBC Holdings rose 0.62 percent at 113.70 Hong Kong dollars (14.583 US dollars), whilst the Bank of China (Hong Kong) dropped 0.42 percent at 18.86 Hong Kong dollars (2.419 US dollars).
