  • Dollar up on Fed rate bets, earnings lift shares
    The dollar rose to its highest in more than three months and U.S. Treasury yields rebounded from two-month lows on Wednesday, after a Federal Reserve official said the central bank was close to raising interest rates. The comments on Tuesday from Atlanta Federal Reserve President Dennis Lockhart, regarded as one of the Federal Open Market Committee's centrist policymakers, put next month back on the table for the first U.S. rate hike in almost a decade. Solid European corporate earnings, notably from French bank Societe Generale (SOGN.PA), boosted stocks after Lockhart's comments and a slide in Apple shares (AAPL.O) soured sentiment the previous day.
  • Greek bank shares plunge for third day, stock market down 1.3 percent
    Greek bank shares sold off sharply for the third day in a row on Wednesday, but losses were far less than in the previous sessions. The main bank sector share index (.FTATBNK) was down 20.3 percent after losing around 30 percent on Monday and Tuesday. "The market is looking for the bottom, we are not far away from it," said Alexander Moraitakis, head of Athens-based Nuntius Securities.
  • Oil bulls' hope for quick price dip dimmed by 2020 crude under $70

Some are now reconsidering that view, as long-term oil prices take the lead in the market's latest dive, swaying sentiment toward a lengthier slump that would mean prolonged pain for big producers, from Exxon Mobil Corp (XOM.N) to Saudi Arabia.
