Fri, 04 Sep 2015 21:33:44 -0400
Trader works on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange shortly after the market opened in New YorkSlowing growth in emerging markets and currency fluctuations in anticipation of a U.S. interest rate hike may push third-quarter revenue and earnings estimates lower this month.

This could happen fairly quickly," said Tim Ghriskey, chief investment officer of Solaris Group in Bedford Hills, New York.

U.S. labor market shows some muscle despite slower job growth
Fri, 04 Sep 2015 16:11:52 -0400
People browse booths at a military veterans' job fair in CarsonBy Lucia Mutikani WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. job growth slowed in August, but the unemployment rate dropped to a near 7-1/2-year low and wages accelerated, keeping alive prospects of a Federal Reserve interest rate hike later this month. Nonfarm payrolls increased 173,000 last month after an upwardly revised gain of 245,000 in July, the Labor Department said on Friday. August's gain was the smallest in five months as the factory sector lost the most jobs since July 2013.

Muddled jobs report leaves Fed in a 'jam' watching markets
Fri, 04 Sep 2015 15:16:11 -0400
Federal Reserve building in WashingtonBy Jonathan Spicer and Jason Lange NEW YORK/RICHMOND, Va. (Reuters) - The latest U.S. jobs report was not definitively good or bad enough to help the Federal Reserve decide whether to raise interest rates later this month, leaving the decision hanging on volatility in financial markets over the next couple of weeks. The economy added 173,000 jobs in August, quite a bit fewer than expected. With global financial markets reeling over the last two weeks over fears of a Chinese economic slowdown, the report is probably the best and last direct reading on the economy before Fed officials consider hiking rates at a Sept. 16-17 meeting.

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 15:35:59 -0400
Bernard Madoff departs US Federal Court after a hearing in New YorkFive former Geneva wealth managers have paid "substantial compensation" to settle criminal complaints brought by clients whose assets they had invested with U.S. fraudster Bernard Madoff, the Geneva prosecutor's office said on Friday.

The five men - Vladimir Stepczynski, Pascal Cattaneo, Olivier Ador, Laurent Mathysen-Gerst and Jean-Marc Wenger - were charged with criminal mismanagement of client money by putting too many assets into a Madoff "feeder fund".
