    Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock ExchangeBy Rodrigo Campos NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. stock index futures rallied on Friday 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. * The BOJ's board voted 5-4 to accelerate purchases of Japanese government bonds, increasing its holdings at an annual pace of 80 trillion yen ($723.4 billion), while tripling its purchases of exchange-traded funds and real-estate investment trusts. * At the same time, Japan's $1. ...


  • Wal-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.

    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. ...

    The logo of BNP Paribas is seen on top of the bank's building in Fontenay-sous-Bois, east of ParisBy Maya Nikolaeva and Matthias Blamont PARIS (Reuters) - France's No. 1 bank BNP Paribas returned to net profit in the third quarter, recovering from a costly U.S. legal settlement to publish what it called a "rock solid" balance sheet, sending its shares up over 4 percent. 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. It said veteran adviser and trouble-shooter Jean Lemierre would become chairman in December. The bank settled with U.S. ...
