News & Events

September 19, 2014
Global markets rallied following Scotland's decision to remain as part of the United Kingdom. Scotland voted to stay in the UK by a 55% to 45% margin, a solid outome that was expected to bring some relief to Spain, which faces a similar secessionist movement in Catalonia. The English Pound jumped to a 2 week high against the US Dollar. World shares were on target to posting their fifth out of six weekly gain. The Euro hovered near a 14 month low, however, after banks returned 20bln Euros just a day after taking a disappointing 83bln Euros in the first of the ECB's loan offerings. Risk sentiment was on the defensive after the US Senate approved a bill to arm and train moderate Syrian rebels fighting Islamic State militants, while tensions continued to simmer between the Ukraine and Russia. Brent crude oil held below $98 a barrel while gold inched lower to $1224.40 an ounce. World markets will also focus on today's largest ever stock offering by Chinese internet giant Alibaba. Wall Street is expected to open on a stronger note after enjoying another week of record highs.
