Eurogroup President Dijsselbloem arrives for a European Union finance ministers meeting in BrusselsEurogroup chairman Jeroen Dijsselbloem rejected calls for banking union regulations to be loosened after weeks of falling bank shares, saying new European bail-in rules had caused investors to look "more critically" at risks born by banks. Speaking on Dutch radio on Saturday, Dijsselbloem, who is also the Dutch finance minister, said stricter rules imposed in the wake of the 2007 financial crisis that would restore confidence in banks. The Stoxx Eurozone Banks Index has fallen more than 25 percent since the beginning of the year, prompting policymakers including Bank of Italy governor Ignazio Visco to call for a more gradual introduction of rules that place the burden of propping up failing banks on investors.

A specialist trader works at his post on the floor of the NYSEThe S&P 500 is down about 13 percent from its record high in May, as oil remains mired below $30 a barrel, while concerns about stability among banks and uncertainty about the U.S. Federal Reserve's path of rate hikes have pushed investors away from risk assets. Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at BMO Private Bank in Chicago, views that as a positive sign.

Tougher lending standards pose risk to outlook for Fed -  BlackRock Global Allocation Inv A(MDLOX) newsTougher lending standards pose risk to outlook for Fed

Snow rests on the eagle statue atop the U.S. Federal Reserve in WashingtonA recent tightening of credit for U.S. companies is threatening to undermine economic growth, making it less likely the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates anytime soon. Fed Chair Janet Yellen said this week it was still too soon for the central bank to change its view that rate hikes are needed, a position supported by a still-robust pace of hiring that is helping consumers borrow more readily. "Financial conditions are tightening the Fed's belt," Deutsche Bank, which expects one rate increase this year, said in a note to clients on Friday.

Greek Prime Minister Tsipras gestures during the session 'The Future of Europe' at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in DavosGreek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Saturday that differences between the country's international lenders over its pension reform plans are delaying the first review of its latest financial bailout. The government has faced widespread protests over its reform plans however, as austerity-weary Greeks push back against yet more cuts to the country's welfare system. "There are differences among the lenders on Greece's pension reform that are delaying the whole process," Tsipras said without elaborating, in an interview in the newspaper "Sunday's Avgi" released on Saturday.

The Canary Wharf financial district is seen in east LondonAmerican and British regulators are likely to charge several banks with rigging interest rates, including Citigroup, the third-largest U.S. bank, and London-based HSBC Holdings, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.

Loeb, founder of Third Point LLC, participates in a panel discussion during the Skybridge Alternatives Conference in Las VegasBillionaire investor Daniel Loeb has told clients his firm has taken more defensive bets in the face of tumbling markets by dramatically increasing its short positions, which helped Third Point avoid "calamitous" losses last year.

Loeb, whose $17.5 billion hedge fund has delivered an average return of 16.2 percent a year over the last two decades, did not mince words in his assessment of tumbling markets.



Exclusive: Boeing nears decision to self-fund more F/A-18 fighters -  BlackRock Global Allocation Inv A(MDLOX) newsExclusive: Boeing nears decision to self-fund more F/A-18 fighters

A F/A-18E comes in to land onboard USS George H.W. Bush in the GulfBoeing Co is nearing a decision to invest "a significant amount" to keep a F/A-18E/F fighter jet production line in St. Louis running as it waits for the U.S. government to approve a delayed order by Kuwait for 28 jets, a senior executive said. Dan Gillian, who runs Boeing's F/A-18E/F and EA-18G electronic attack jet programs, told Reuters the company would decide in coming weeks whether to buy titanium and other materials needed to start work on the jets, even before the Kuwait deal and potential U.S. Navy orders are finalized. Delays in orders for the jets mean Boeing must decide whether to invest hundreds of millions of dollars into the F/A-18 program, even as its commercial division faces job cuts and a federal investigation into whether it properly accounted for two jetliners, the 747 and 787.
