'Monetary policy that explicitly pursues environmental goals runs the risk of being overburdened,' Weidmann said in Berlin.  New ECB president Christine Lagarde has promised to discuss sustainability considerations in the bank's upcoming strategic review.

    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Iraq's protest-hit cities saw one of their bloodiest days yet on Thursday as a government crackdown killed more than 30 demonstrators following the dramatic torching of an Iranian consulate.  The country's capital and south have been rocked by the worst street unrest since the 2003 US-led invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein, with a protest movement venting fury at the government and its backers in neighbouring Iran.  The Iraqi Human Rights Commission said more than 30 people had died on Thursday when security forces used 'excessive force' to break up rallies, including 25 in the flashpoint city of Nasiriyah in the south.

    RIYADH/LONDON (Reuters) - Qatar's foreign minister has made an unannounced visit to Riyadh, two sources told Reuters, amid signs that a 2-1/2-year rift among U.S.-allied Gulf Arab states could soon subside.  Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani met with senior Saudi officials last month, said one of the sources familiar with the trip, the highest-level visit since May when Qatar's prime minister attended an Arab summit in Mecca.  It was unclear if the visit, first reported by the Wall Street Journal, included a face-to-face with de facto Saudi ruler Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

    Loading the atmosphere with five million tonnes of CO2 every hour has pushed Earth dangerously close to a no-return threshold, beyond which lies an unlivable hothouse world, top climate scientists have warned.  There are 15 known tipping points in the planet's complex climate system, and nine of them -- including permafrost, the Amazon rainforest, the Greenland icesheet, Arctic sea ice, and the Atlantic Ocean's circulation -- are alarmingly 'on the move', they reported in the journal Nature.  AFP spoke to two of the authors -- Tim Lenton, director of the Global Systems Institute at the University of Exeter, and Johan Rockstrom, director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research.

  • 19/27   Stocks Slip With U.S. Futures on Fresh Trade Worry: Markets Wrap
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- Stocks slipped in Europe along with U.S. equity futures after President Donald Trump signed a bill backing Hong Kong protesters, raising concerns about the prospects for an interim trade deal between the world’s two largest economies. Gold edged up.The Stoxx Europe 600 Index tracked declines in much of Asia, with automaker shares the biggest losers. Contracts on the main U.S. benchmarks all traded slightly lower as China threatened to retaliate against Trump’s move, though Beijing stopped short of any immediate action. Hong Kong shares pared an initial retreat to post a modest drop alongside Japanese, Chinese and South Korean stocks.European sovereign bonds edged lower. The pound trimmed some of Wednesday’s gain against the dollar. Treasuries didn’t trade because of the Thanksgiving holiday; U.S. equities are also shut.With volumes light thanks to the U.S. break and little in the way of direct trade news, Trump’s signing of a bill increasing American scrutiny of Hong Kong was one of the few narratives for investors on Thursday. The development is a potential headwind to stocks at a time when a global benchmark of developed- and emerging-market equities remains just below its all-time record.“The bad news is, the trade war is still on,” Andy Kapyrin, director of research at RegentAtlantic Capital LLC, told Bloomberg TV. “I really don’t see substantial progress on trade with China,” and markets will perceive Trump’s signing of the bill negatively, he said.Elsewhere, oil fell for a second day after U.S. crude production rose to a record.

  • 20/27   Morgan Stanley Ousts FX Traders as It Probes Concealed Loss
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- Morgan Stanley fired or placed on leave at least four traders over an alleged mismarking of securities that concealed losses of between $100 million and $140 million, according to people with knowledge of the matter.Morgan Stanley is investigating the suspected mismarking, which was linked to emerging-market currencies, said the people, who asked not to be identified as the details are private. Tom Walton, a spokesman for the New York-based firm, declined to comment.The traders who have been identified as part of the probe include Scott Eisner and Rodrigo Jolig, both based in London, and two senior New York-based colleagues, Thiago Melzer and Mitchell Nadel, the people said. Eisner, Jolig, Melzer and Nadel didn’t respond to requests for comment. Their ultimate employment status isn’t yet clear, but at least some of them are leaving the bank, the people said.Melzer was given responsibility for foreign exchange and emerging-markets Americas trading in March, while Nadel runs macro trading in the Americas, including rates and currencies. Eisner was managing orders for the Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa currency book, known as CEEMEA, according to his LinkedIn profile.In so-called mismarking, the value placed on securities doesn’t reflect their actual worth. The scope of the probe at Morgan Stanley includes currency options that give buyers the right to trade at a set price in the future, enabling them to both speculate and hedge against potential losses. Dealing in foreign-exchange options surged 16% to $294 billion per day in April, according to the most recent data from the Bank for International Settlements.Morgan Stanley’s currency options desk has struggled this year amid a slump in the volatility that generates profits for traders, even in the more unruly emerging markets, according to a person with knowledge of the performance.Third QuarterThe Wall Street firm booked some of the losses in the third quarter, one of the people said. Morgan Stanley reported a 21% increase in overall fixed-income trading revenue, a result that was “partially offset by a decline in foreign exchange,” according to its third-quarter earnings presentation.It has been a turbulent week for U.S. banks in London after Citigroup Inc. was fined 44 million pounds ($57 million) by the Bank of England for years of inaccurate reporting to regulators about the lender’s capital and liquidity levels. The incidents point to weak internal controls at investment banks a decade on since the financial crisis.The probe shows “the amount of effort still needed in these large organizations to reduce episodes of misconduct,” said Angela Gallo, a finance lecturer at Cass Business School. “The frequency of misconduct cases in the U.S. and Europe in recent years speaks very loudly that more fundamental changes are required.”(Updates with names of traders in third paragraph)\--With assistance from Silla Brush.To contact the reporters on this story: Stefania Spezzati in London at sspezzati@bloomberg.net;Donal Griffin in London at dgriffin10@bloomberg.net;Viren Vaghela in London at vvaghela1@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Ambereen Choudhury at achoudhury@bloomberg.net, Keith CampbellFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- Oil was little changed as OPEC and its allies signaled they won’t deepen output cuts and President Donald Trump signed a law supporting Hong Kong protesters, complicating trade talks with China.Futures in New York ended Thursday stuck between $58 and $58.50 a barrel for a fourth day as the U.S. Thanksgiving Holiday reduced trading volumes.Data presented to an OPEC committee in Vienna showed the market will be balanced in 2020 if the group maintains current output levels. Meanwhile, China said that U.S. legislation backing Hong Kong’s autonomy would strain ties just as the two countries work on a trade deal. The developments came on top of a report Wednesday showing a surprise increase in U.S. crude stockpiles and record production.“You probably have about 15% of the market expecting a deeper market cut from OPEC,” said Daniel Ghali, a TD Securities commodity strategist. “We do not expect that to happen.”Crude prices have rebounded since dipping close to $50 a barrel in early October on signs the U.S. and China would reach a partial trade deal. But futures have been hitting a wall since nearing $59 last week, and an agreement could now be harder to reach with Beijing threatening to retaliate and saying the new law risks affecting “cooperation in important areas.”The Hong Kong bill signed by Trump “may have some implication on the trade file,” Ghali said. “It’s not helping from a negotiating standpoint.”West Texas Intermediate for January delivery was just 0.2% higher at $58.24 a barrel when trading halted around 1 p.m. in New York, after declining 0.5% on Wednesday.
