Shares in London, meanwhile, are drifting lower as traders await the results of the tests, according to our markets reporter Nick Fletcher in his latest Market Forces blogpost . 12.39pm: With the markets trying to second guess the results of the stress tests, any news is being grasped and all meaning squeezed out of it.

The European Commission, for instance, is trying to calm fears that its decision to allow Spain and Portugal to extend state support to their banks until the end of the year is NOT ... market research, surveys and trends
Fundamental Analysis – Returning Confidence Turns Bond Appetite ...
U.S. 10-year treasury notes are cheapening up ahead of a $21 billion auction later today as yields rise to the highest since the end of June.

California to issue IOUs after missing budget deadline; muni bond ...
to elderly, disabled and welfare recipients who are due checks because the governor and the legislature failed to agree on a spending plan before the state's budget year begins today. Treasurer Bill Lockyer said California won't default on any bonds, which have claims second only to schools. Schwarzenegger's administration forecasts that the state will spend $4.5 billion on debt service this year, but only $16 million is due in July. Bond rating agencies could act as early as today to lower California's bond ratings, as they've warned in the past few weeks. Both Moody's and S&P have threatened ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Suddenly, just getting caught up with and effortlessly riding the overall upward wave--a strategy which has become known as momentum investing--is no longer enough. Momentum issues now are in the press as much for their spectacular recent losses as for their previous but fleeting gains. Value investing is a strategy which focuses on the fundamental strengths of an individual stock; though in some cases, you might take advantage of the relative strengths of an ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Sale leaves some Synlait investors sour
Disillusioned small shareholders in Synlait will probably walk away from the Canterbury dairy company they say has done a U-turn on its founding strategy by selling its only value-added asset to Chinese investors. ''We will quietly sell. There are people looking for shares at the moment but I tell them unless you can get 10 per cent you're not going to get a fair run,'' said a Synlait Limited investor who spoke on condition of anonymity. About 44 shareholders put $25 million into Synlait's first factory and have had no dividend in nine years, an investor said. Apart from the dilution of their ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
John C. Bogle: Financial Reform: Will it Forestall a Future Crisis of Ethic ...
The financial reform act that was signed into law this week — while imperfect — represents an important first step in attempting to preclude or mitigate future financial collapses. But increased regulation and oversight alone will be insufficient to prevent a recurrence of the recent financial crisis. The causes of the collapse are no secret. While it is often claimed that “victory has a thousand fathers, but defeat is an orphan,” the defeat suffered by investors in our devastating financial crisis seems to have, figuratively speaking, a thousand fathers. The Federal Reserve kept interest rates too low ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
