  • Fed renews zero rate pledge, but hints at steeper rate hike path

    Sun rises to the east of the U.S. Federal Reserve building in WashingtonBy Michael Flaherty and Howard Schneider WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Federal Reserve on Wednesday renewed its pledge to keep interest rates near zero for a "considerable time," but also indicated it could raise borrowing costs faster than expected when it starts moving. Many economists and traders had expected the U.S. central bank to alter the rate guidance it has provided since March, given generally improving data on the economy's performance. But the Fed repeated its assurance that rates would stay ultra-low for a "considerable time" after a bond-buying stimulus program ends. ...


  • Dollar soars to six-year peak on yen after Fed, Tokyo stocks cheer

    A pedestrian looks at an electronic board showing stock market indices outside a brokerage in TokyoBy Wayne Cole and Hideyuki Sano SYDNEY/TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese shares jumped on Thursday after the dollar vaulted to a six-year peak on the yen as the Federal Reserve's outlook for rising rates underlined the diverging path between the United states and the rest of the rich world. In other regional share markets, the reception was mixed, with MSCI's index of ex-Japan Asian shares falling to 12-week lows, on the spectre of rising U.S. rates and slower economic growth in China. ...

  • Japan exports knocked by weak U.S. shipments, hurt economic recovery

    A worker rides a bicycle in a container area at a port in TokyoBy Stanley White TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's exports declined in August as shipments to the United States contracted, another sign the economy is struggling to rev up after a deep slump in April-June. A further period of lackluster exports and slack domestic demand could force the government and the Bank of Japan to find new ways to prop up the economy. Exports fell 1.3 percent in August from a year ago, less than the median estimate for a 2.6 percent annual decline. That followed a 3.9 percent annual gain in the previous month after having fallen in June and May. ...


  • U.S. inflation surprisingly weak, Fed keeps low rates pledge

    Shoppers carry their purchases along Broadway in New York CityBy Lucia Mutikani WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. consumer prices fell for the first time in nearly 1-1/2 years in August and underlying inflation pressures were muted, which could lessen the urgency for the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates. The Labor Department said on Wednesday its Consumer Price Index dropped 0.2 percent last month as a broad decline in energy prices offset increases in food and shelter costs. It was the first decrease since April last year and followed a modest 0.1 percent gain in July. Economists had expected consumer prices would be flat in August. ...
