Gold Gets 1 boost on Greek Crisis Fears Stocks Slump

first_imgGold jumped 1 percent on Monday as investors sought safety in the metal after the Greece debt crisis took a turn for the worse over the weekend, with Athens looking more likely to default and exit the euro zone.FUNDAMENTALSSpot gold was up nearly $11 to $1,185.20 an ounce by 0030 GMT, after reaching $1,186.91 earlier in the session, its highest in nearly a week.U.S. gold futures also jumped 1 percent to a session high of $1,187.60.Bailout talks between the Greek leftwing government and foreign lenders broke down over the weekend and the European Central Bank froze vital funding support to Greece’s banks, leaving Athens with little choice but to shut down the system to keep the banks from collapsing.The failure to reach a deal with creditors leaves Greece set to default on 1.6 billion euros of loans from the International Monetary Fund that fall due on Tuesday. Athens must repay billions of euros to the ECB in the coming months.The impending default on the IMF loans leaves Greece sliding towards a euro exit and also carries broad implications for the global financial system. Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras late on Friday surprised creditors by calling a snap referendum on what he said were the unacceptable terms offered to keep the country from bankruptcy.U.S. stock futures and the euro fell almost 2 percent in early Asian trade on Monday. Asian shares look set to open lower, despite the Chinese central bank’s monetary easing on Saturday.

Telenor plans to sell India business to Idea Cellular Report

first_imgTelenor India, the Indian subsidiary of parent company Telenor, held talks with Idea Cellular for selling its entire India unit in a cashless deal. The deal would include Idea Cellular taking over all the liabilities of the Norway-based telecom operator.Telenor owes the Indian government Rs 1,900 crore in deferred spectrum payments. It also owes Rs 1,800 crore in debt to financial institutions. “The two companies have held negotiations for a transfer of all liabilities and assets without an actual payout,” the Economic Times quoted a source as saying. However, according to other media reports, the talks between the two telecom operators may not lead to a deal being finalised since Idea may not want to add additional debt burden. Idea bought additional spectrum worth Rs 13,000 crore during the spectrum auction in October. Telenor has spectrum rights in Bihar, Jharkhand, UP East, UP West, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Assam and Gujarat. If the deal comes through, it would result in Idea Cellular gaining 4G spectrum in the 1800 Mh band, while Telenor would exit the Indian market, ET added. Since January this year, Telenor has marked down the value of its India business by about Rs 5,000 crore, whereas the write-down of the value of its license was over Rs 4,000 crore. Telenor did not take part in the recently concluded October spectrum auction, hinting that the company intended to leave the market, where it incurred losses in thousands of crores and struggled to remain afloat. The Idea Cellular stock was trading at Rs 76.10 at around 1 p.m. on Friday, down 1.17 percent from its previous close on the Bombay Stock Exchange.last_img read more

AntiTrump protesters in March for Truth

first_imgActivists carrying placards with political points of view march to City Hall through downtown Los Angeles, California. Photo: AFPSharp political passions over President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate accord and his links to Russia brought people onto the streets of cities around the globe on Saturday, mostly to condemn but some to praise him.They came as Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, ended days of confusion to make clear that “President Trump believes the climate is changing” and that man-made pollutants are partly responsible.She insisted in a CNN interview that Trump, who has often called global warming a “hoax,” was concerned about the changing climate. “Just because the US got out of a club doesn’t mean we aren’t going to care about the environment,” she said.But Trump’s decision Thursday to pull out of the Paris treaty, which is designed to cut harmful emissions and slow the Earth’s warming, sparked a wave of global condemnation and helped fuel some of the many protest marches on Saturday.The largest of the many US rallies organized as a March for Truth appeared to be in New York, where as many as 3,000 anti-Trump protesters descended on Foley Square in Lower Manhattan, with some shouting “Liar!” or “Lock him up!” or “Take back America!”Nearly as many people converged around the Washington Monument in the US capital to similarly demand a full and independent investigation of the allegations that Trump or his aides might have colluded with Russia ahead of last year’s US presidential election to help Trump win.To ‘raise our voices’“The president works for the American people, and not for a foreign entity around the world,” said Linda Sarsour, an organizer of the march and a co-chair of the Women’s March on Washington in January.Added Savannah Stark, a 22-year-old from Ohio, “We need to keep working hard and raise our voices until he’s impeached.”Other rallies were held in cities from Portland, Oregon on the US West Coast to Munich, Germany and Lima, Peru. Demonstrators also demanded that Trump release his tax returns, a tradition among US presidents which Trump has steadfastly refused to follow.The US demonstrations appeared to be mostly peaceful. They were far smaller than some of the earlier anti-Trump protests.They took place just days before the highly anticipated appearance June 8 before a Senate committee of James Comey, who as FBI director was leading an investigation of the Russia matter before Trump fired him early in May.Trump has denied placing pressure on Comey or the FBI, as well as denying any collusion with Russia.Former FBI chief Robert Mueller has been named as a special counsel to investigate any links between Russia and the Trump campaign.“We want to get to the bottom of this,” Leon Chen, a 32-year-old Texan and self-described Republican taking part in the Washington march, told AFP. “It’s not only Russia, it’s also his business ties, how him and his family are profiting from this presidency.”Treaty ‘cost us billions’At the same time as the other rallies Saturday, a few hundred Trump supporters gathered on the street in front of the White House to applaud the president’s withdrawal from the Paris treaty—a move criticized around the world—and to demonstrate their backing for the Republican president.That rally was dubbed “Pittsburgh, Not Paris”—a reference to the president’s statement Thursday, in announcing his plan to withdraw from the international climate treaty, that “I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris.”The Trump supporters included Vince Harrison, 56, a burly retired firefighter from Washington, who said it was his first rally ever.“I believe in clean air, and I think Americans will still lead on clean air,” he said. But he added that the treaty “was costing us billions to be in it while other countries were not required to do anything.”Treaty supporters note that it is actually non-binding—no country was required to do anything—but the presence of the United States, the second-largest polluter after China, was considered vital.Several people at the pro-Trump rally said they were unconcerned that exiting the treaty would leave the United States in the company of the only two countries that are not signatories: Nicaragua and Syria. And some said other issues mattered more to them than the climate pact—starting with building a wall on the Mexican border.A sign at a nearby rally held as a counter to the “Pittsburgh, Not Paris” rally correctly noted that “Pittsburgh’s Mayor Supports the Paris Accord.”In fact, Mayor Bill Peduto on Friday joined the mayors of some 175 other US cities and the governors of several states in announcing that his city would follow the terms of the Paris treaty.Pittsburgh, once known not just as a powerhouse steel producer but as one of the most polluted cities in the country, will work to convert its city vehicle fleet to hybrid and electric vehicles and to make its buildings more energy-efficient, said Peduto.He was to address a pro-Paris rally Saturday in Pittsburgh.last_img read more
