Eyes on Fed after ECB, other bank stimulus moves -  Permanent Portfolio(PRPFX) newsEyes on Fed after ECB, other bank stimulus moves

The United States Federal Reserve Board building is shown in WashingtonBy Caroline Valetkevitch NEW YORK (Reuters) - The Federal Reserve could be key for Wall Street next week as investors get to hear from the U.S. central bank for the first time since a series of moves by its global peers, including the European Central Bank's massive stimulus plan. Thursday's larger-than-expected stimulus package from the ECB lifted U.S. stocks, helping indexes post gains for the week after three straight weeks of losses.



All eyes on Fed, Greece after ECB fires bazooka -  Permanent Portfolio(PRPFX) newsAll eyes on Fed, Greece after ECB fires bazooka

The United States Federal Reserve Board building is shown in WashingtonBy Ingrid Melander PARIS (Reuters) - After the surprises from central banks which rocked markets at the start of the year, the U.S. Federal Reserve will be watched as closely as ever this week to see that it doesn't stray from its own policy path. The atmosphere will already be tense as the fallout from Sunday's snap election in Greece settles and concern has grown in some quarters that central banks, which played such a big part in guiding economies through the financial crisis, are becoming less predictable. The shock of the Swiss National Bank abandoning its cornerstone currency cap had yet to fully subside when the European Central Bank said it would flood markets with over a trillion euros, more than expected, to prevent the euro zone from sliding into deflation. Canada also cut its rate out of the blue and Denmark did so twice to navigate a world of tumbling oil prices and weak growth.



Venezuela's currency woes an increasing threat to U.S. corporate profits -  Permanent Portfolio(PRPFX) newsVenezuela's currency woes an increasing threat to U.S. corporate profits

A cashier counts Venezuelan bolivar notes in a state-run supermarket in CaracasBy Tim McLaughlin and Svea Herbst-Bayliss (Reuters) - Venezuela's deepening economic troubles, and in particular the weakness of the bolivar and restrictive currency controls, have hurt U.S. corporate profits for the fourth quarter of 2014 and are set to inflict further pain this year. In a likely sign of things to come from a number of companies this results reporting season, Ford Motor Co on Friday said it was taking a pre-tax charge of $800 million for its Venezuela business. Ford also said that it was unable to maintain normal production in Venezuela with the availability of vehicle parts constrained. Also on Friday, diaper and tissue maker Kimberly-Clark Corp said it took a fourth-quarter charge of $462 million for its Venezuelan business.



U.S. existing home sales, economic activity gauge rise -  Permanent Portfolio(PRPFX) newsU.S. existing home sales, economic activity gauge rise

A sign marks a house for sale by the owner in the Capitol Hill neighborhood in WashingtonThe National Association of Realtors said on Friday existing home sales increased 2.4 percent to an annual rate of 5.04 million units last month. "The still-tight mortgage credit conditions and more challenging first-time homebuyer affordability that were revealed by the failure of home sales to continue recovering last year remain serious concerns as we head into 2015," said Ted Wieseman, an economist at JPMorgan in New York. First-time buyers made up 29 percent of transactions in December as well as for the year as a whole, well below the level needed to boost growth in the housing market.  For all of 2014, existing home sales fell 3.1 percent, the first annual drop in four years. The housing market has struggled to maintain momentum since stagnating in the second half of 2013 following a run-up in mortgage rates.

Exclusive: Big mortgage investors take first step toward suing Ocwen -  Permanent Portfolio(PRPFX) newsExclusive: Big mortgage investors take first step toward suing Ocwen

To match FEATURE USA-HOUSING/By Karen Freifeld NEW YORK (Reuters) - Major mortgage bond investors including BlackRock , MetLife and Pimco on Friday took a first step toward suing Ocwen Financial Corp , accusing it of having failed to properly collect payments on $82 billion of home loans, according to a person familiar with the matter and to documents seen by Reuters. The group sent a formal notice of non-performance to Ocwen and trustees for 119 residential mortgage-backed securities trusts, alleging improper loan modification practices, wrongfully recouped advances, and a failure to account for cash flows. The notice said that Ocwen also steered work to affiliates such as Altisource Portfolio Solutions and Home Loan Servicing Solutions for allegedly unnecessary or overpriced mortgage servicing to the detriment of the trusts, investors and borrowers. The case is the latest setback for Ocwen, which was recently threatened with the loss of its license in California, and whose stock has fallen 89 percent from its record high in October 2013 amid state and federal probes into its business practices.
