Futures rally after BOJ ramps up stimulus -  Yacktman Svc(YACKX) newsFutures rally after BOJ ramps up stimulus

Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock ExchangeBy Rodrigo Campos NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. stock index futures rallied on Friday alongside most markets globally after the Bank of Japan significantly ramped up its stimulus program just days after the U.S. Federal Reserve wound down its own package of economic incentives. If futures' gains hold after the open, the S&P 500 will test its record high set more than a month ago. The BOJ's board voted 5-4 to accelerate purchases of Japanese government bonds while tripling its purchases of exchange-traded funds and real-estate investment trusts. At the same time, Japan's $1. ...



U.S. consumer spending weakest in eight months, savings jump -  Yacktman Svc(YACKX) newsU.S. consumer spending weakest in eight months, savings jump

Woman eats ice cream as she looks at the display in the window of a Gold Standard jewellery store in New YorkWASHINGTON, (Reuters) - U.S. consumer spending fell in September for the first time in eight months, suggesting the economy lost some momentum heading into the fourth quarter. The Commerce Department said on Friday consumer spending declined 0.2 percent last month as demand for goods tumbled and services barely rose. Spending had increased by an unrevised 0.5 percent in August. Economists polled by Reuters had expected consumer spending, which accounts for more than two-thirds of U.S. economic activity, to increase 0.1 percent in September. When adjusted for inflation, consumer spending fell ...

Wal-Mart to expand discounts as retail price war heats up -  Yacktman Svc(YACKX) newsWal-Mart to expand discounts as retail price war heats up

A Wal-Mart Stores Inc company distribution center in Bentonville(Reuters) - Wal-Mart Stores Inc said it will expand its offering of discounted products during the holiday season and may broaden a price-matching scheme to include online rivals, in the latest sign of an escalating price war among big U.S. retailers. Wal-Mart said it was bracing for competition to be as tough or tougher than in 2013, when heavy discounting depressed earnings across the industry. Wal-Mart's profits dropped in the holiday quarter last year and it has posted six straight quarters of flat or declining same-store sales. ...



Argentina default spreads to Par bonds, raising acceleration risk -  Yacktman Svc(YACKX) newsArgentina default spreads to Par bonds, raising acceleration risk

A padlock secures the shutters of a shop in Buenos AiresBy Sarah Marsh and Daniel Bases BUENOS AIRES/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Argentina's debt default spread to its Par bonds on Friday after the country failed to complete an interest payment, raising the risk that creditors could demand that its cash-strapped government immediately repay all of its debt. The country last month deposited a $161 million payment with a newly appointed local trustee to try to circumvent U.S. court orders for it to settle with "holdout" investors suing for full repayment of bonds from a 2002 default before paying debtholders who accepted a restructuring. ...

Bank of Japan Governor Kuroda walks into a news conference at the BOJ headquarters in TokyoBy Leika Kihara and Tetsushi Kajimoto TOKYO (Reuters) - The Bank of Japan shocked global financial markets on Friday by expanding its massive stimulus spending in a stark admission that economic growth and inflation have not picked up as much as expected after a sales tax hike in April. BOJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda portrayed the board's tightly-split decision to buy more assets as a preemptive strike to keep policy on track, rather than an admission that his plan to reflate the long moribund-economy had derailed. ...

Former UBS banker Raoul Weil, who is out on bail, arrives at federal court with his wife Susan in Fort LauderdaleBy Francisco Alvarado, Zachary Fagenson and Joshua Franklin FORT LAUDERDALE Fla./ZURICH (Reuters) - From bundles of cash inside scraps of newspaper to setting up shell companies, the trial in Florida of a former UBS executive is a reminder of the extreme methods some Swiss bankers used to hide clients' cash.     Raoul Weil, 54, is the highest ranking Swiss banker to be arrested in the United States and prosecutors are seeking to paint him as a facilitator of efforts that helped conceal up to $20 billion in taxpayers' assets in secret offshore accounts. ...

BNP -- battling to restore investor and client confidence after a $8.9 billion fine from U.S. authorities -- reshuffled its top ranks in the quarter to tighten controls.
