Commodities, China stocks lick wounds after brutal July -  Yacktman Svc(YACKX) newsCommodities, China stocks lick wounds after brutal July

A man walks past the London Stock Exchange in the City of LondonBy Marc Jones LONDON (Reuters) - Commodities and China investors waved a relieved goodbye to July on Friday following a brutal sell-off that has revived fears about the global economy and overshadowed more encouraging news from the U.S. and Europe. There were signs that the rout wasn't over yet as Chinese stocks - which have suffered their worst monthly drop in 6 years - wobbled again, oil prices slipped following a more than 15 percent July slump and metals from industrial copper to precious gold hit multi-year lows. "The main moves this week have been the continued broad-based weakness in commodities," said Societe Generale strategist Alvin Tan.



Fed's 'nearly balanced' language no bar to September rate rise -  Yacktman Svc(YACKX) newsFed's 'nearly balanced' language no bar to September rate rise

Sun rises to the east of the U.S. Federal Reserve building in WashingtonBy Howard Schneider WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Reserve will not need to see balanced risks to the economy to proceed with an interest rate hike in September, according to former Fed officials and a review of central bank statements through recent turns in policy. In its latest statement, released Wednesday, the Fed said it continued to judge the risks to the U.S. economy as "nearly balanced," meaning it still sees a greater threat of a new downturn than it does of accelerating inflation and excessive growth. Prior to its decision to begin raising rates at that meeting, the Fed had for several months judged the risks to the economy as "roughly equal." It kept that characterization at the June meeting, and for nearly a year after that.



Exclusive: China watchdog extends pursuit of short sellers to HK, Singapore - sources -  Yacktman Svc(YACKX) newsExclusive: China watchdog extends pursuit of short sellers to HK, Singapore - sources

An investor checks on his mobile phone in front of an electronic board showing stock information at a brokerage house in HangzhouHONG KONG/SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China is pressing foreign and Chinese-owned brokerages in Hong Kong and Singapore to hand over stock trading records, sources said, extending its pursuit of "malicious" short sellers of Chinese stocks to overseas jurisdictions. China's main share markets, both among the world's five biggest, have slumped around 30 percent since mid-June and authorities have been flailing in efforts to prevent a further sell-off that could spill over into the wider economy. The markets regulator, the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC), wants the trading records to try to identify those with net short positions who would profit in case of further falls in China-listed shares, three sources at Chinese brokerages and two at foreign financial institutions said.
