Gilts rally after Fed opens door to more stimulus

first_img KCS-content Gilts were given a further boost when the minutes from the Bank of England’s most recent Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) meeting showed increased concerns about the outlook for the economy. But Sam Hill, a UK fixed income strategist at RBC Capital Markets warned it would be difficult to justify more QE with inflation already higher than target.The UK rally tracked similar movements in the US gilts market, where yields on benchmark 10-year Treasuries slid to their lowest level in three weeks.Gold prices saw yet another spike, with spot gold setting a record of almost $1,300 an ounce, while the dollar lost 1.5 per cent on a trade weighted basis, on fears that another round of stimulus would mean an effective devaluation of the currency. YIELDS on UK government bonds saw their sharpest fall in 18 months, after the US?Federal Reserve said it was open to a new round of quantitative easing (QE) to help revive the flagging American economy.The yield on the benchmark 10-year gilt dropped by 15 basis points to 2.97 per cent, the biggest drop since the Bank of England started buying up government bonds in March last year.

HSBC hit by US watchdogs

first_imgThursday 7 October 2010 9:46 pm THE Federal Reserve said yesterday that it issued an order against HSBC North American Holdings requiring the bank to improve company-wide risk management, including practices to prevent money laundering.It said that within 30 days, the bank’s board of directors must submit a plan for strengthening oversight of its compliance risk-management programme. The plan must show how risk is being managed within and across business lines, legal entities and jurisdictions in which the bank operates.HSBC is also required to submit to the Fed a company-wide compliance risk assessment that contains recommendations for improving controls and provides an evaluation of its compliance risk exposure.Last February, a senior US senator said he was referring HSBC Holdings to its US bank regulator in connection with questionable accounts it provided for senior Angolan officials.Senator Carl Levin, who chairs the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, said he was referring the issue to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, an arm of the US Treasury, due to concerns that tainted foreign money might be flowing into the US. The action caps a turbulent time for HSBC, which last month underwent a shake-up of its senior management.Earlier this month, two clients of HSBC Holdings were convicted of failing to report more than $49m (£31m) in income to the US Internal Revenue Service.The two Miami Beach-based developers, Mauricio and Leon Cohen, used shell enterprises and offshore tax havens in the Bahamas and elsewhere to conceal assets and income.

Purdue Analyzes Farm Economy at Commodity Classic.

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Purdue Analyzes Farm Economy at Commodity Classic. SHARE By Gary Truitt – Mar 3, 2017 Purdue Analyzes Farm Economy at Commodity Classic.The state of the farm economy is top of mind at Commodity Classic. As a result, the Purdue University economic outlook put on by the Purdue Center for Commercial Agriculture drew a standing room only crowd.Jim Mintert, with the Center for Commercial Agriculture, gave a detailed and sobering analysis of the current state of the U.S. farm economy. Mintert said the key to survival is management, “We see 2017 as another tough year, but farm operating costs are coming down. We expect to see operating costs come down to equal the price received by growers over the next 2 to 3 years. We do not expect commodity prices to increase to the point of covering the cost of production for several years. Thus, the key is how can producers hang on for 2017 and 2018.” He said fertilizer costs and cash rents will continue to decline, but the costs of seed and crop protection chemicals will continue to rise.Just after the Purdue program one of the largest farm trade shows opened at Commodity Classic, sporting the latest in production technology and equipment. Mintert cautioned growers about spending on capital purchases, “Producers with tight working capital should only make capital purchases if they really need the equipment.” He added that growers should not make a purchase just to save on taxes, a practice that has been common over the past few years.Dr. Jason Henderson, Assistant Dean of Agriculture at Purdue, told the crowd that interest rates will be going up and said the Federal Reserve has the goal of having a prime rate of 3% in the next few years.   He urged growers to not go deeper into debt the next few years.The program ended on an optimistic note with over a third of the audience indicating they feel their farms will be better off financially a year from now.   The new barometer of the level of optimism of U.S. farmers will be released by Purdue and the CME group on Tuesday.

Special Tribunal for Lebanon puts journalist and TV station on trial

first_img Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” April 21, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Special Tribunal for Lebanon puts journalist and TV station on trial Follow the news on Lebanon Organisation RSF_en Reporters Without Borders reiterates its support for Lebanese TV journalist Karma Khayat, whose trial before the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) in The Hague on charges of contempt of court and obstructing justice began last week. Help by sharing this information February 4, 2021 Find out more LebanonMiddle East – North Africa LebanonMiddle East – North Africa Receive email alerts News News News November 11, 2020 Find out more January 14, 2021 Find out more Created to investigate Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri’s assassination in 2005, the STL accuses Karma Khayat and her Arabic-language TV news channel, Al Jadeed TV, of endangering supposed confidential witnesses by filming them for a report after learning of their identity from an anonymous leak.The report, which Al Jadeed TV broadcast in instalments from 6 to 10 August 2012, has not been removed from the station’s website or YouTube account. The charges were originally announced in April 2014.This is the first time that a TV station has been the subject of a prosecution by an international court. The company that owns Al Jadeed TV, New TV S.A.L., is also being prosecuted. The STL is the first international court to be set up to investigate a single act of terrorism.Now Al Jadeed TV’s vice-president, Khayat says the report’s aim was to draw attention to the STL’s problems and did not endanger the supposed witnesses because their names and their faces were pixelated in the video footage. The STL accuses her of undermining the public’s confidence in its ability to protect witnesses.She is facing the possibility of a 7-year jail sentence and a 100,000-euro fine at the end of the trial, which began on 16 April.Reporters Without Borders, which supports Khayat and her TV station, believes it is vital to preserve freely-reported news coverage in Lebanon at a moment in its history that is extremely delicate from both the political and security viewpoint.“We condemn the decision to try Al Jadeed TV and Karma Khayat, who are guilty solely of holding the STL to account by broadcasting information obtained from leaks,” Reporters Without Borders programme director Lucie Morillon said. “The media have a duty to question the way the courts operate and to encourage a public debate on this subject.”International media that covered this story have not been charged. They include the Canadian broadcaster CBC, the German news magazine Der Spiegel and the French dailies Le Figaro and Libération, which used confidential documents and internal STL leaks.Khayat told the judge on 16 April: “The International Court was created for us and with our money. It is our duty to monitor its work.” Her lawyer, Karim Khan, said Khayat and other Al Jadeed TV employees have received death threats in connection with the case. According to our sources, the report’s two main aims were to show that confidential information was being leaked from within the TSL, thereby endangering the proceedings, and to highlight the fact that is was easy to access “protected” witnesses, who had not been briefed about the confidential nature of their status as witnesses.The first session of the trial, which began with the prosecution presenting its arguments, is due to end tomorrow. The trial will resume on 12 May, when the defence will have three days to present its witnesses and arguments. No date has been set for the verdict.Members of a group that supports Khayat and Al Jadeed TV attended the start of the trial. They include Florence Hartmann, a French journalist who was convicted of contempt of court by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.The STL has also charged Ibrahim Al-Amine, the editor of the daily Al-Akhbar, and the company that owns his newspaper, with contempt of court and obstruction of justice. No date has so far been set for their trial.Reporters Without Borders submitted an amicus brief on the Khayat case to the STL when a preliminary hearing was held on 13 May 2014.Lebanon is ranked 98th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.
