Face Of US Ambassador Slashed In South Korea

March 5th, 2015 by James

South Korean police and U.S. officials have announced that U.S. Ambassador Mark Lippert was in stable condition after a man slashed him on the face and wrist with a knife. The man was screaming demands for a unified North and South Korea.

Face Of US Ambassador Slashed In South Korea

A stunned-looking Lippert was seen in media images as examining his blood-covered left hand and holding his right hand over a cut on the right side of his face, his pink tie splattered with blood. The attack, which happened at a performing arts center in downtown Seoul, was condemned by the U.S. State Department. The ambassador was preparing for a lecture about prospects for peace on the divided Korean Peninsula.

Lippert was in stable condition after surgery at a Seoul hospital and his injuries weren’t life threatening, said the U.S. State Department.

Kim Young-man, spokesman for the group hosting the breakfast, the Korean Council for Reconciliation and Cooperation, said the knife-wielding man ran screaming up to Lippert as soup was being served for the breakfast meeting and began slashing.

The suspect also shouted anti-war slogans after he was detained. In 2010, the suspect threw a piece of concrete at the Japanese ambassador in Seoul. The accused, Kim Ki-jong, was later sentenced to a three-year suspended prison term over the attack. In October 2007, Kim also reportedly tried to set himself on fire with gasoline while protesting in front of the presidential Blue House.

Four-Month Loan Extension For Greece

February 21st, 2015 by James

On Friday, the finance ministers of euro zone agreed in principle to extend Greece’s financial rescue by four months. This decision averted a potential cash crunch in March that could have forced Greece out of the currency area.

Four-Month Loan Extension For Greece

The deal, which is to be ratified once creditors of Greece are satisfied, ends weeks of uncertainty since the election of a leftist-led government in Athens that pledged to reverse austerity. “Tonight was a first step in this process of rebuilding trust,” Jeroen Dijsselbloem, chairman of the 19-nation Eurogroup, told a news conference. “We have established common ground again to reach agreement on this statement.”

The agreement provides a breathing space for the new Greek government to help it negotiate longer-term debt relief with its official creditors.

European Union paymaster Germany, Greece’s biggest creditor, has asked for “significant improvements” in reform commitments by Athens before it would accept an extension of euro zone funding.”Being in government is a date with reality, and reality is often not as nice as a dream,” German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble told reporters. He stressed Athens would get no aid payments until its bailout program was properly completed.

“The Greeks certainly will have a difficult time to explain the deal to their voters,” the conservative veteran said.

The accord requires Greece to submit a letter by Monday to the Eurogroup listing all the policy measures it plans to take during the remainder of the bailout period. Euro zone member states will ratify the extension, where necessary through their parliaments if the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund are satisfied.

Berlin Wants Greece To Stay In Euro Zone, Says Germany’s Vice Chancellor

January 7th, 2015 by James

Germany’s Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel said the German government wants Greece to stay in the euro zone and there are no contingency plans to the contrary. Gabriel was responding to a media report that Berlin is of the view that the currency union could cope without Greece.

Gabriel, the Economy Minister and leader of the center-left Social Democrats (SPD), added the euro zone had become more resilient in recent years and could not be “blackmailed”.

“The goal of the German government, the European Union and even the government in Athens itself is to keep Greece in the euro zone,” Gabriel said in an interview to Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung. “There were no and there are no other plans to the contrary,” he said. Gabriel also said the euro zone had become far more stable in recent years.

“That’s why we can’t be blackmailed and why we expect the Greece government, no matter who leads it, to abide by the agreements made with the EU,” he said while referring to the January 25 Greek election and a possible change of government.

Earlier, a spokesman for Chancellor Angela Merkel, Georg Streiter, remarked that the government of Germany expects Greece to stick to the terms of its 240-billion euro EU/IMF bailout agreement.

A report in Der Spiegel magazine on Saturday said Berlin now believed the euro zone would be able to cope with a Greek exit, or “Grexit”, if necessary. Berlin considers “Grexit” almost unavoidable if the left-wing Syriza opposition party wins Greece’s election, Der Spiegel reported. Syriza wants to cancel austerity measures and a chunk of Greek debt.

December 19th, 2014 by James

On Friday, Asian shares enjoyed their best day in 15 months after Wall Street enjoyed its biggest two-day advance since late 2011 amid relief that the U.S. Federal Reserve was in no hurry to withdraw stimulus from the U.S. economy.

Biggest Rise In 15 Months For Asian Shares

These gains came as Oil prices stayed under pressure to suggest that equity investors were starting to see the positives in reduced fuel costs and increased consumer spending power.

Australia’s main index romped ahead by 2.2 percent and Japan’s Nikkei JNIc1 climbed 2.1 percent to erase most of its recent losses. Shares in Shanghai hit their highest in four years while MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS put on 1.5 percent. “Risk sentiment is ending the week on a stronger footing after a poor start,” said analysts at Barclays. “Market expectations for ECB QE add to the Fed’s upbeat message on U.S. growth and stabilization in Russia.”

The Dow .DJI surged 2.43 percent, while the S&P 500 .SPX gained 2.4 percent and the Nasdaq .IXIC 2.24 percent.

The US dollar regained ground on the yen to 119.24 and the euro resumed its decline against the U.S. dollar, dropping to $1.227. After a wild week, oil prices managed to steady for the moment. Brent LCOc1 inched up 11 cents to $59.38 after it lost over a $1.00 on Thursday, while U.S. crude CLc1 added 21 cents to $54.32.

Dow And S&P 500 Finished At Record Highs

November 21st, 2014 by Jenna Anderson

On Thursday, the Dow and S&P 500 finished at record highs as data suggested further strength in the U.S. economy and Intel gave an upbeat forecast.

Dow And S&P 500 Finished At Record Highs

Technology shares gave the markets their biggest lifts, along with energy. Intel shares jumped 4.7 percent to $35.95 to boost all three major indexes. Intel shares hit their highest level since January 2002, after its 2015 revenue outlook was above expectations of the Wall Street and the company raised its dividend.

Data showed factory activity in the U.S. mid-Atlantic region grew at its fastest pace in two decades. In October, U.S. home resales jumped to their highest in more than a year.

Margaret Patel, senior portfolio manager at Wells Capital Management, said growth in the economy and earnings should bode well for stocks heading into next year.

“Next year will be a reasonable to maybe a surprisingly good year,” she said. “(There is) no reason in the world why we can’t see P/Es expand.” Patel said stocks could rise by a mid single-digit to high-teens percentage next year.

The Dow Jones industrial average rose 33.27 points, or 0.19 percent, to 17,719, a record close. The S&P 500 gained 4.03 points, or 0.2 percent, to 2,052.75, its 44th record high this year. The Nasdaq Composite added 26.16 points, or 0.56 percent, to 4,701.87.

NYSE advancing issues outnumbered decliners 2,013 to 1,025, for a 1.96-to-1 ratio; on the Nasdaq, 1,824 issues rose and 893 fell for a 2.04-to-1 ratio.

Hungarian Protesters Urge To Scrap Internet Tax

November 1st, 2014 by James

On Sunday, more than 10,000 people marched in Budapest to demand the scrapping of a proposed tax on Internet use. The critics of Prime Minister Viktor Orban call the proposed tax on internet use as his latest anti-democratic measure.

Hungarian protesters urge to scrap Internet tax

“There will be no Internet tax… we will block it,” organizer Balazs Gulyas told the crowd to cheers. “If the tax is not scrapped within 48 hours, we will be back again,” he said.

In an echo of recent pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, the crowd held smartphone torches aloft outside the economy ministry and held signs with slogans such as “Free Wifi! Free Internet! Free Hungary!”

Included in Fidesz’s 2015 budget proposal, the tax would charge telecom companies 150 forints (about 61 cents) per gigabyte of data and can reduce the budget deficit of Hungary to within the European Union standard of 3 percent of GDP by generating potential revenue from the tax at 100 billion forints ($414 million).

Economy Minister Mihaly Varga said the tax of 150 forints (0.50 euros, $0.61) on each transferred gigabyte of data — was required to help shore up the 2015 budget of Hungary, one of the EU’s most indebted nations. Varga added the internet use tax was fair because it was a shift away from phone lines and to the Internet.

“The EU has been critical of Orban for introducing illiberal policies, but they’ve not used all available tools to sanction him,” said Tsveta Petrova, a Europe analyst at Eurasia Group, a political risk consultancy. “They’ve allowed Fidesz to claim it is defending Hungarians against the interests of European bureaucrats.”

‘No’ Campaign Victorious In Scotland

September 22nd, 2014 by James

Following a historic referendum vote, Scotland will remain part of the United Kingdom — along with England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. A majority of voters rejected the possibility of Scotland getting away from Britain and becoming an independent nation. The “No” campaign has won the referendum on Scottish independence with 31 of 32 councils declared.

'No' Campaign Victorious In Scotland

Admitted defeat in Scotland’s independence referendum, Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond urged the rest of Scotland to do the same. In a televised statement, Salmond thanked Scotland “for 1.6 million votes for Scottish independence.”

Edinburgh voted overwhelmingly to stay in the union with 123,927 for “Yes” and 194,628 “No” votes. Argyll and Bute and Aberdeenshire also voted “No.” Glasgow delivered a solid win for the independence camp with 194,779 votes for “Yes,” and 169,347 for “No.”

The counting officer for Edinburgh, Sue Bruce, explained each ballot will be double-checked, to verify each voter’s decision.

Addressing dozens of election workers, Bruce added, “I look forward to working with you during the course of the evening to deliver an accurate and transparent Edinburgh count in which you and the voters of Edinburgh can have full confidence.”

About 790,000 people applied for a postal vote — the largest volume of registration for postal votes ever in Scotland. The vote for the first time was extended to 16- and 17-year olds living in Scotland. Nearly 110,000 people younger than 18 had registered to vote.

Dollar Climbs To New Six-Year High Against Yen

September 10th, 2014 by James

Today, the US dollar rose to a new six-year high against the Japanese yen as the Australian dollar nursed a second session of heavy losses after further gains in U.S. Treasury yields.

Dollar Climbs To New Six-Year High Against Yen

U.S. Treasury yields have moved up as a result, with the two-year US2YT=RR within sight of a three-year peak of 0.590 percent set in late July. On Wednesday the 10-year yield US10YT=RR popped back above 2.50 percent, off a recent low of 2.30 percent, and was at 2.505 percent in Asian trade.

“People missed their chance to buy the dollar on dips,” said Kaneo Ogino, director at Global-info Co in Tokyo, a foreign exchange research firm.

“The interest rate outlook is in focus, as Japanese yields will keep to lower levels,” he said.

The Australian dollar skidded 0.4 percent to $0.9162 AUD=D4, after dropping as low as $0.9154. This was due to a pick-up in market volatility pushing investors to pare back carry trades. The setback of Aussie dollar was sparked by a broad rally in the U.S. dollar. “Traders could see a further correction lower if we see a daily close south of $0.9175, which is a key support level,” said Stephen Innes, senior trader at OANDA Asia Pacific.

The euro edged down against the US dollar, moving back toward a 14-month trough of $1.2859 EUR= plumbed in European trade on Tuesday. The dollar index .DXY edged down slightly to 84.234 from Tuesday’s 14-month high of 84.519.
