  • Japan shares soar, yen skids after BOJ stuns with new easing steps
    Japanese stocks soared 4.8 percent to their highest close since November 2007 and the yen skidded to near seven-year lows against the dollar on Friday, after the Bank of Japan surprised markets with fresh easing steps it called a pre-emptive move to stoke inflation. The Nikkei stock average marked its biggest one-day gain since June 2013 after Japan's central bank said it would purchase more shares of exchange-traded funds and real estate investment trusts, extend the duration of its portfolio of Japanese government bonds, and increase the pace at which it expands base money to "pre-empt manifestation" of risks. The dollar was buying 111.06, up about 1.7 percent on the day after rising as high as 111.18 yen, its highest since January 2008. "It was a total surprise that the BOJ eased further at this time given that BOJ executives have not voiced such pessimistic views lately.
  • Citigroup sets aside $600 million more to cover legal costs
    Citigroup is one of six major banks that are expected to settle with Britain's Financial Conduct Authority by mid-November over allegations that the banks manipulated foreign exchange markets. Barclays Plc, another of the six banks, said on Thursday it had set aside 500 million pounds for the third quarter to cover potential fines. While the legal costs have hit profits, weighed on share prices, and consumed management time, they have not forced banks to raise money by issuing shares, and are not expected to. Citigroup, for example, is likely to make nearly $28 billion in pre-tax profits over the next five quarters, way more than enough to cover heightened legal expenses, according to analysts at Bernstein Research.
  • Wal-Mart to expand discounts as retail price war heats up
    Wal-Mart said it was bracing for competition to be as tough or tougher than in 2013, when heavy discounting depressed earnings across the industry. Wal-Mart's profits dropped in the holiday quarter last year and it has posted six straight quarters of flat or declining same-store sales. “It is starting to heat up right now, and I would expect it to be at least as competitive as last year," Steve Bratspies, executive vice president of general merchandise for Wal-Mart's U.S. Wal-Mart said it plans to have 20,000 "rollbacks", or a product discounted for at least 90 days, on offer starting on Saturday.
