  • Asian shares rise, US jobs data in focus
    Most U.S. markets will be closed on Friday, with some European markets closed Friday through Monday and reopening on Tuesday. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up about 0.5 percent, ignoring modest overnight losses on Wall Street. Australian shares (.AXJO) rose on growing expectations that the Reserve Bank of Australia will announce its second rate cut of 2015 when it meets on Tuesday, the first trading day after markets close for the Easter weekend. "Hedge funds are seen covering their short positions as the Nikkei fell sharply this week," said Norihiro Fujito, senior investment strategist at Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley Securities.
  • Oil retreats from large jump as focus returns to Iran talks
    Oil prices fell on Thursday as attention returned to nuclear talks with Iran, with the prospects for a deal and an increase in Iranian crude exports helping to keep pressure on prices. Major powers and Iran have stretched talks on Tehran's nuclear program into a second day past an end-March deadline, with diplomats saying prospects for a preliminary deal were balanced between success and collapse in the coming hours. Both Brent and U.S crude prices snapped three-session losing streaks on Wednesday, gaining $2 or more after data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA) showed a fall in rigs drilling for oil resulted in a drop in U.S. output last week for the first time since late-December. Brent crude for May delivery (LCOc1) was down 37 cents at $56.73 a barrel by 0408 GMT.
  • Big bank brokers use decoys, spy tactics to go alone
    Secret contracts, covert real-estate deals, scurrying around after nightfall to avoid detection: this is how far big-bank brokers are prepared to go when they plan to go independent. The Botkin Group, a team of brokers in Pittsburgh who produced $1.6 million in revenue last year for Morgan Stanley, went so far as to require non-disclosure agreements from contractors who made new signs, installed phones and delivered furniture to their new office. "We felt like we worked for the CIA," said Lester H. Botkin, 35, the youngest of the group, which also includes his father, Lester P. Botkin, 63, sister, Sara Botkin, 37, and one client service associate.     They represent growing numbers of brokers who are leaving big bank brokerages, such as Morgan Stanley, Bank of America's Merrill Lynch, Wells Fargo Advisors and UBS Group AG to branch out on their own.
