    Trans-Pacific Partnership may be a bitter pill to swallow

    The Sydney Morning Herald
    The Trans-Pacific Partnership highlights the conflict between intellectual property protection and cheap medicine. The proposed trade and investment treaty involves Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the US, and Vietnam. The pharmaceutical industry wants 12 years of monopoly after the release of a new treatment as part of the TPP. That is seven years longer than the current period in Australia, after which competitors can develop and sell cheap generic. For those suffering a serious illness and who need affordable medicine, that seven years could be a life-and-death difference.

    3 Numbers: Talks but no fix for Greek debt, German Ifo, US durables
    There are hopes that today's Eurogroup talks will lead to compromise that give Greece access to the final payment in its second bailout programme. Approaching debt repayment deadlines could otherwise force the country into a default. In Germany, the Ifo business climate index may fall short of expectations; yesterday's purchasing manager index was a negative surprise. In US, there are hopes for a turnaround in the long-term downtrend in durable goods orders.

    Earnings Preview: How long will Sohu remain sustainable?
    Fallen tech giant Sohu will release its first quarter earnings on April 27 before the markets open, with investors expecting to see continued growth from its search engine Sogou, and growing content costs for its video business.

    Commodities may have hit bottom, but no sharp recovery likely

    The Sydney Morning Herald
    A chorus of market watchers say the price of key commodities such as oil and iron ore may be close to their nadir in the cycle. Mihir Worah, CIO for real return and asset allocation at global bond fund manager PIMCO, says a supply shake-out forced by sharp price declines has put supply and demand closer to equilibrium. Commodity prices won't go down from here, he says. However market watchers point to the risk that producers will step in with new capacity prematurely.
