Bombardier (Toronto: BBD-A.TO - news) has been hit with another trade tariff, as the international dispute that threatens thousands of jobs in Northern Ireland rumbles on. The Canadian firm, which employs 4,000 people in Belfast, has been slapped with a second preliminary levy of 80% on the exports of its planes to the US, the Trump administration announced on Friday. Bombardier is already facing a 220% tariff on a new model of passenger jet as part of a separate investigation into claims from US firm Boeing (NYSE: BA - news) that it received unfair state subsidies from the UK and Canada.

French President Emmanuel Macron will push on with his speech at the Sorbonne today detailing a major overhaul of the European Union's single currency zone, even as he knows that Angela Merkel might not be in a position to help him deliver on it.

The euro jumped more than 1 percent and yields on benchmark U.S. government debt remained at unattractive rates on Friday after the world's two leading central bankers declined to discuss monetary policy in keynote speeches. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's non-policy remarks at an annual meeting of central bankers in Jackson Hole, Wyoming pushed U.S. Treasury debt yields lower and increased chances that the U.S. central bank will not raise interest rates in December as had been widely anticipated. The euro, meanwhile, jumped more than 1 percent after European Central Bank President Mario Draghi, speaking after Yellen, did not talk down the euro zone single currency's strength as some investors had speculated.
Wall Street put a floor under global equities on Friday after a weak inflation reading brought investors back into U.S. stocks even as tensions between the United States and North Korea continued to escalate, though that tension still drove safe-haven buying of gold and the yen. A small rise in a measure of U.S. consumer prices pointed to benign inflation that could make the Federal Reserve cautious about raising interest rates again this year, which would be favorable to equity investors. The hope that the Fed will have to slow its rate-hike path appeared to stop, at least for now, the near $1-trillion loss in world stocks valuations this week triggered by the war of words between Pyongyang and Washington.
The three major U.S. stocks indexes ended higher on Friday, snapping three days of losses, as investors bet on slower U.S. rate hikes, but gains were muted by increasingly aggressive exchanges between ...
Sterling is set to plummet by double-digits by the end of the year on slowing UK economic growth and the likelihood the Bank of England will hold off raising interest rates, said Guy Petcho of Voya Investment Management. Petcho, global macro portfolio manager for the $213 billion investment firm, said in an interview that sterling was set to fall about 15 percent from its level on Friday of around $1.2960 to $1.10. The former Soros Fund Management analyst said second-quarter UK economic growth would likely be weak at slightly below 1 percent on an annualized basis.
World stock markets edged higher on Thursday, buoyed by a slight rebound in oil prices after hitting seven-month lows, while the U.S. dollar weakened for a second consecutive session. "It’s pretty low and you are looking for a bit of a breather but all the forces seem to be aligning against the price of oil, it is just a question of where does it settle out," said Thomas Martin, senior portfolio manager at Globalt Investments in Atlanta (BSE: ATLANTA.BO - news) , Georgia.

U.S. Treasury long-dated yields rose to one-week highs on Friday as investors consolidated positions ahead of next week's government debt auctions and a widely expected interest rate increase by the Federal Reserve.

Republican Greg Gianforte defeated a political novice to win Montana's seat in the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday, barely 24 hours after he was charged with assaulting a reporter who asked him about the Republican healthcare bill. A race that was expected to be a test of President Donald Trump's political influence ahead of next year's U.S. congressional elections was jolted by the charge against Gianforte, a wealthy technology executive who had urged voters to send him to Congress to help Trump. Gianforte beat Democrat Rob Quist, a banjo player and first-time candidate who had focused his campaign on criticism of the Republican effort to repeal and replace former President Barack Obama's healthcare law.

Federal Reserve policymakers agreed they should hold off on raising interest rates until it was clear a recent U.S. economic slowdown was temporary, though most said a hike was coming soon, minutes from their last policy meeting showed on Wednesday. Nearly all policymakers at the May 2-3 meeting also said they favored beginning the wind-down of the U.S. central bank's massive holdings of Treasury debt and mortgage-backed securities this year. While investors continue to see a rate increase as highly likely next month, the minutes showed that the Fed's rate-setting committee "generally" believed it hinged on the economy rebounding from its sharp slowdown in the first quarter.
Key healthcare stakeholders, led by the World Economic Forum, plan pilot programs this year to show the value of a new model for healthcare that would track and pay for treatment based on how well it works rather than the volume of care. The first pilot, being set up in Atlanta (BSE: ATLANTA.BO - news) , Georgia, will focus on treating heart failure. Signatories include Novartis AG (IOB: 0QLR.IL - news) , maker of heart failure drug Entresto, drugmaker Takeda Pharmaceutical Co Ltd , medical device maker Medtronic Plc (Frankfurt: 2M6.F - news) , integrated health insurer/provider Kaiser Permanente, Qualcomm Inc's health-data unit, and health officials from the Netherlands and Britain.

New U.S. single-family home sales rose less than expected in January, likely held back by heavy rains and flooding in California, but continued to point to a strengthening housing market despite higher prices and mortgage rates. Other data on Friday showed a dip in consumer sentiment this month, though it remained at a level consistent with a healthy pace of consumer spending. The economy has gained momentum, supported by a labor market that is near full employment.
