U.S. employment data drag down dollar, Treasury yields

A man walks past the London Stock Exchange in the City of LondonThe dollar tumbled and benchmark U.S. Treasury yields touched multi-week lows on Friday as an unexpectedly weak government reading of American labor costs dulled prospects for higher U.S. interest rates. Wall Street stock prices rose, also taking a cue from the Employment Cost Index data showing the smallest quarterly increase in 33 years. Oil prices declined for a second day on growing worries about global oversupply.

Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock ExchangeThe Dow and S&P 500 were dragged down on Friday by weak earnings from oil producers Exxon Mobil and Chevron, while the Nasdaq edged up after Amgen's profit beat expectations. Exxon Mobil shares fell 4 percent to $79.52 while Chevron was down 4.2 percent at $89.06 after quarterly profits slumped on falling oil prices. Amgen rose 4.7 percent to $179.64 after the world's largest biotechnology company reported higher-than-expected second-quarter results.


If Greek trades in U.S. are any guide, Athens bourse may have rocky re-start

U.S.-listed equity instruments tied to Greece have fallen around 20 percent since the Athens stock market was closed in late June, heralding a potentially rough start when it finally re-opens. This was based on the performance of the "GREK" exchange traded fund (ETF) - comprised of U.S. market listings of Greek companies - since the actual Athens stock exchange has been shut. National Bank of Greece's U.S-listed equity instruments also rose 1.7 percent on Friday but again are down some 20 percent in the last month.

Greek stock market aims to reopen on Monday: regulator

Greece's stock market aims to reopen on Monday following a five-week shutdown but is still awaiting a finance ministry decree detailing new trading rules, the Greek securities regulator's chairman told Reuters on Friday. The Athens Stock Exchange (ASE) has been shut since June 29, when the government closed banks and imposed strict limits on withdrawals and foreign transfers to prevent a run on deposits by savers and companies. "We're working on the basis of Monday but we're waiting for the minister's decision, which is the legal prerequisite for the reopening," said Konstantinos Botopoulos, chairman of the Hellenic Capital Market Commission.

The China Securities Regulatory Commission says it is investigating institutions and individuals for programme trading, which had amplified "big fluctuations" on the stock marketChina's two stock exchanges have slapped trading limits on more than 20 accounts as the market regulator on Friday announced a crackdown on computerised "programme trading", which it blamed for recent volatility.

China stock regulator probes market impact of automated trading

An investor stands in front of an electronic board showing stock information at a brokerage house in FuyangBy Samuel Shen and Pete Sweeney SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China's securities regulator on Friday said it is investigating the impact of automated trading on the market, as Beijing intensifies pressure on its financial industry in the wake of a share-price plunge. The China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC), in an announcement on its official microblog, also said it had restricted 24 stock trading accounts for suspected irregularities, including abnormal bids for shares and bid cancellations that might have impacted wider market performance.
