  • Asia shares face July drop on worst China loss in six years
    SINGAPORE/TOKYO (Reuters) - Asian shares inched higher on Friday but were still set to post a loss for July, led by China's biggest monthly drop in six years. The dollar edged away from highs scaled after U.S. GDP data reinforced expectations that the Federal Reserve is likely to raise interest rates this year. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up about 0.3 percent at 0532 GMT, but recorded a loss of 5.9 percent for the month.
  • Fed's 'nearly balanced' language no bar to September rate rise
    The U.S. Federal Reserve will not need to see balanced risks to the economy to proceed with an interest rate hike in September, according to former Fed officials and a review of central bank statements through recent turns in policy. In its latest statement, released Wednesday, the Fed said it continued to judge the risks to the U.S. economy as "nearly balanced," meaning it still sees a greater threat of a new downturn than it does of accelerating inflation and excessive growth. Prior to its decision to begin raising rates at that meeting, the Fed had for several months judged the risks to the economy as "roughly equal." It kept that characterization at the June meeting, and for nearly a year after that.
