Economic Round-Up

India’s central bank is looking at ending an emergency facility under which it has directly sold dollars to state refiners since late August, according to three people with knowledge of the matter. The rupee fell. The Reserve Bank of India is in talks with the companies to gauge the potential impact of withdrawing the measure on the exchange rate, two of the people said, asking not to be named as the discussions are private. The facility stays operational and “any tapering of the window, as and when it occurs, will be done in a calibrated manner,” the RBI said in a statement on its website. Under the contingency measure, the RBI provided the U.S. currency to Indian Oil Corp., Bharat Petroleum Corp. and Hindustan Petroleum Corp., according to the central bank.RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan, who raised the benchmark rate last month for the first time since 2011 to counter inflation, has said the bank will gradually scale back the dollar supplies as the rupee stabilizes. • The Federal Reserve will delay the first reduction in its bond purchases until March after the government shutdown slowed fourth-quarter growth and interrupted the flow of data, economists said. Policy makers will pare the monthly pace of asset buying to $70 billion from $85 billion at their March 18-19 meeting, according to the median of 40 responses in a Bloomberg News survey of economists. The 16-day budget impasse in Washington reduced growth by 0.3 percentage point this quarter. The U.S. central bank will reduce monthly purchases to a $25 billion pace by July and end the program at the October 2014 meeting, according to the survey conducted this week. Chairman Ben S. Bernanke’s second term ends Jan. 31, and President Barack Obama has nominated Vice Chairman Janet Yellen to succeed him. • The shutdown delayed the publication of key economic reports from the Department of Labor and Department of Commerce. It also prevented data collectors at the agency from gathering some of the data at the usual time period. The Labor Department said two days ago the September jobs report will be released Oct. 22, while October’s will be pushed back to Nov. 8 from Nov. 1. RR, All rights reserved Page 2 of 3
