Wall Street ends lower after Yellen comments fail to inspire

Traders work shortly after the opening bell on the floor of the New York Stock ExchangeU.S. stocks ended weaker on Friday after Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen indicated that the central bank was poised to raise interest rates this year, in line with Wall Street's expectations. In a speech, Yellen said a rate hike would be warranted this year if the economy keeps improving as expected. Investors have enjoyed an extended period of low volatility and steady gains, but with the Fed on track to raise rates this year and major indexes near records, the market could get a bit choppier in coming weeks.


Wall St flat, Yellen comments in line with expectations

Traders work shortly after the opening bell on the floor of the New York Stock ExchangeU.S. stocks were flat on Friday after Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said it would be appropriate to raise interest rates this year if the economy continues on its current path, in line with broad expectations on Wall Street. In a speech, Yellen said the economy was well-positioned for growth and that it would take several years to return to normal interest rates. Yellen is a dove more than a hawk, and she's not in a real rush to raise rates.

GLOBAL MARKETS-Stocks get that Friday feeling as stimulus trumps growth concern

World shares neared record highs and bond yields fell on Friday, as investors shrugged off slowing global growth and focused instead on the continued stimulus provided by the world's major central banks. U.S. futures pointed to a slightly positive open on Wall Street, after the S&P 500 hit an all-time high on Thursday. A batch of soft manufacturing data on Thursday from the United States, China and Germany pointed to sluggish global growth but cemented investor hopes that central banks will keep stoking activity.

Pedestrians look at an electronic board showing the various stock prices outside a brokerage in TokyoBy Hideyuki Sano TOKYO (Reuters) - The market capitalisation of shares listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange's main board hit a record high on Friday, topping a 26-year peak and marking one victory in Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's campaign to jolt the economy out of a long phase of deflation and stagnation. The total market capitalisation of the TSE's first section rose to 591.30 trillion yen ($4.9 trillion), surpassing the previous peak of 590.09 trillion yen hit in December 1989, when share prices hit record peaks at the height of the Japanese asset bubble. Although the TSE's Topix index is still more than 40 percent below its 1989 peak, the market's size grew as the number of listed firms increased to 1,881 from 1,161 back then.
