Euro falls on ECB outlook; S&P 500 pares gains as focus on jobs data

Genral view of trading floor of Frankfurt stock exchange in FrankfurtBy Caroline Valetkevitch NEW YORK (Reuters) - The euro fell 1 percent on Thursday on a darkening euro zone outlook, while U.S. stocks pared sharp early gains to end barely higher as investors grew cautious ahead of Friday's August jobs report.

Nervousness ahead of the U.S. Labour Department's monthly jobs report on Friday and what it may mean for the U.S. interest rate outlook took out most of the early gains in stocks late in the session.

China biggest concern for emerging FX; real most prone to sell-off

A customer counts Chinese Yuan notes at a market in BeijingBy Silvio Cascione and Sumanta Dey BRASILIA/BENGALURU (Reuters) - China's struggle with an economic slowdown will haunt foreign exchange markets for months to come, a Reuters poll showed, even if many emerging currencies are considered somewhat cheap after months of a relentless sell-off. While speculation over U.S. interest rates will also weigh heavily, with only a few days to go until a Federal Reserve meeting in which some economists say it could raise rates, the chances of China devaluing its currency further is likely to hold more sway over financial markets. Forecasts for major emerging currencies such as the Brazilian real, the South African rand and Turkish lira were mostly unchanged or revised down from an August poll as analysts accounted for the sharp losses of recent weeks, fuelled by concerns of an historic stock market rout in China.
