  • Asia shares swing higher as China nears seven year high
    Asian stock markets rose on Monday, with China stocks nearing a seven-year peak on hopes for more infrastructure spending and policy stimulus, while oil prices suffered further from excess supply. The Hang Seng China Enterprises Index (.HSCE) also added 3.5 percent after China allowed mainland mutual funds to buy Hong Kong stocks. After some early dithering, Japan's Nikkei (.N225) firmed 0.8 percent, helped by talk of demand for the new quarter and financial year. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan recouped early losses to gain 0.4 percent.
  • Oil prices drop on weak demand, potential Iran deal
    Oil prices fell on Monday as the market focused on whether Iran and six world powers would reach a deal that could add fuel to an already oversupplied market if sanctions against Tehran are lifted. "Any relaxation of Iran oil sanctions could see increased exports adding to swelling global supplies and further pressuring prices," ANZ said on Monday. Benchmark Brent crude futures (LCOc1) had dropped to $56.10 by 0600 GMT, down 31 cents as the market began to price in the possibility of a deal with Iran. Brokerage Phillip Futures said that it expected oil prices to fall to $50-53 for Brent and $46-48 for U.S. crude in the second quarter.

The CT6, to be unveiled ahead of the April 3-12 New York auto show, is an expensive car aimed more at boosting Cadillac’s brand image than sales volume. GM engineers are studying variations on the CT6’s multi-material construction for at least four other future vehicle architectures and other models could be derived from the CT6's “Omega” architecture, Travis Hester, CT6’s chief engineer, said in an interview.
