Sun, 19 Apr 2015 08:11:12 -0400
Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock ExchangeBy Jennifer Ablan and David Gaffen NEW YORK (Reuters) - In January 2014, veteran short-seller Bill Fleckenstein said he was readying a new fund to bet on falling stock prices.

During the first week of her second presidential campaign, Clinton ticked through those missteps one by one, carefully retooling her positions to line up with the views of progressive Democrats.

Britain's bank tax jump threatens to push HSBC, StanChart to new home
Sun, 19 Apr 2015 08:08:36 -0400
A Swiss International aircraft flies past the HSBC headquarters building in the Canary Wharf financial district in east LondonBy Steve Slater and Sinead Cruise LONDON (Reuters) - HSBC and Standard Chartered are looking at the viability of quitting London for a new home in Asia because a big jump in a tax on UK banks makes staying in Britain increasingly painful. Several investors told Reuters they want the two banks to do a thorough analysis on whether it makes sense to move after Britain raised the bank tax by a third last month. Some are expected to quiz bosses on it at shareholder meetings, including at an investor gathering in Hong Kong on Monday. "There is a very clear risk that HSBC and StanChart reach a pain threshold where they think it is no longer worth staying in the UK," said Richard Buxton, head of equities at Old Mutual Global Investors, which owns HSBC shares and who said the bank was reflecting on a move.
