Fed renews zero rate pledge, but hints at steeper rate hike path -  BlackRock Global Allocation Inv A(MDLOX) newsFed renews zero rate pledge, but hints at steeper rate hike path

Sun rises to the east of the U.S. Federal Reserve building in WashingtonBy Michael Flaherty and Howard Schneider WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Federal Reserve on Wednesday renewed its pledge to keep interest rates near zero for a "considerable time," but also indicated it could raise borrowing costs faster than expected when it starts moving. Many economists and traders had expected the U.S. central bank to alter the rate guidance it has provided since March, given generally improving data on the economy's performance. But the Fed repeated its assurance that rates would stay ultra-low for a "considerable time" after a bond-buying stimulus program ends. ...



Dollar surges to six-year peak on yen, Tokyo stocks cheer -  BlackRock Global Allocation Inv A(MDLOX) newsDollar surges to six-year peak on yen, Tokyo stocks cheer

A pedestrian looks at an electronic board showing stock market indices outside a brokerage in TokyoBy Wayne Cole SYDNEY (Reuters) - Japanese shares jumped on Thursday after the dollar vaulted to a six-year peak on the yen as the Federal Reserve's outlook for rising rates underlined the diverging path between the United states and the rest of the rich world. The euro skidded to a 14-month trough while gold hit an eight-month low as the dollar swept higher across the board, a move that many investors have been itching to wager on all year. ...

New Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 Tablets are displayed during a launch event in New YorkBy Jennifer Saba and Deepa Seetharaman NEW YORK (Reuters) - Amazon.com Inc ramped up its push into hardware on Wednesday with the debut of six new or upgraded devices, including a high-end $199 e-reader called the Kindle Voyage and its cheapest-ever touch-screen tablet.

Japan exports knocked by weak U.S. shipments, hurt economic recovery -  BlackRock Global Allocation Inv A(MDLOX) newsJapan exports knocked by weak U.S. shipments, hurt economic recovery

A worker rides a bicycle in a container area at a port in TokyoBy Stanley White TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's exports declined in August as shipments to the United States contracted, another sign the economy is struggling to rev up after a deep slump in April-June. A further period of lackluster exports and slack domestic demand could force the government and the Bank of Japan to find new ways to prop up the economy. Exports fell 1.3 percent in August from a year ago, less than the median estimate for a 2.6 percent annual decline. That followed a 3.9 percent annual gain in the previous month after having fallen in June and May. ...



Federal Reserve signals faster but still slow path for rate rises -  BlackRock Global Allocation Inv A(MDLOX) newsFederal Reserve signals faster but still slow path for rate rises

Federal Reserve Board chair Janet Yellen arrives at her news conference in WashingtonBy Howard Schneider WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Federal Reserve officials nudged their expected path of interest rate increases higher on Wednesday, but did little to change the outlook for a long slow climb back up to normal monetary policy. The revised rate projections left a deep disconnect between the U.S. central bank and financial markets, with investors anticipating significantly lower rates in the future than the Fed officials themselves project. The so-called "dots" matrix from the Fed rate setters showed their median view of the appropriate federal funds rate by end-2015 at 1. ...



U.S. inflation surprisingly weak, Fed keeps low rates pledge -  BlackRock Global Allocation Inv A(MDLOX) newsU.S. inflation surprisingly weak, Fed keeps low rates pledge

Shoppers carry their purchases along Broadway in New York CityBy Lucia Mutikani WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. consumer prices fell for the first time in nearly 1-1/2 years in August and underlying inflation pressures were muted, which could lessen the urgency for the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates. The Labor Department said on Wednesday its Consumer Price Index dropped 0.2 percent last month as a broad decline in energy prices offset increases in food and shelter costs. It was the first decrease since April last year and followed a modest 0.1 percent gain in July. Economists had expected consumer prices would be flat in August. ...

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) logo is seen at the IMF headquarters building during the 2013 Spring Meeting of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank in WashingtonWASHINGTON (Reuters) - The global economy faces a growing risk from big financial market bets that could quickly unravel if investors get spooked by geopolitical tensions or a shift in U.S. interest rate policy, the International Monetary Fund said on Wednesday. The IMF, an institution based in Washington that is the world's premier watchdog for financial and economic stability, said in a report it still expects economic growth will pick up in the second half of 2014 after a rough start to the year. ...
