Stocks and Bonds: World


US stocks rose on Monday, with the S&P 500 up for the fifth day, after last week's disappointing jobs report hardened views that the Federal Reserve won't raise interest rates this year. Global stock markets were also higher on the prospect that near-zero interest rates will continue for a while yet. Friday's US nonfarm payrolls report for September showed that job growth slowed in the last three months.

Tokyo's benchmark Nikkei 225 index closed higher Monday on speculation the US Federal Reserve will keep interest rates near zero longer and an economic downturn will force Japanese policymakers to increase stimulus this month. The Nikkei rallied for a fourth day, the first time it has done so since China devalued its yuan currency in August, sparking fears about the world-wide impact of the country's struggles and triggering a rout in global equity markets.
Britain's top share index rose nearly 3 percent on Monday, with a surge in Glencore after a volatile week leading mining companies higher. Glencore shares jumped as much as 20 percent in London, following a 25 percent leap on the Hong Kong market, on hopes the company would sell some assets to cut its debt. The shares closed up 21.1 percent and have now recouped last week's losses. The stock dropped around 30 percent last Monday, before rallying towards the end of the week.
European shares rose sharply on Monday as weak data in Europe and elsewhere reinforced expectations the broad monetary policy backdrop will remain equity-friendly, with Glencore and ArcelorMittal lifting the mining sector. The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index ended up 3 percent and the euro zone's bluechip Euro STOXX 50 climbed 3.3 percent. Both had fallen on Friday before Wall Street rebounded to end in the black.
Indian shares rose more than 2 percent on Monday, posting their biggest single-day percentage gain in nearly nine months as expectations for a US rate hike faded after weaker-than-expected US jobs data. Indexes posted a fourth consecutive day of gains after earlier hitting their highest intraday levels since August 21. Markets were closed on Friday for a public holiday.
Sri Lankan shares ended slightly weaker on Monday, after hitting one-week closing highs in the previous session, led by falls in John Keells Holdings Plc and Commercial Bank of Ceylon Plc. The main stock index ended 0.23 percent, or 16.48 points, weaker at 7,089.06, slipping from its highest close since September 25 hit on Friday.
The stocks, financial and commodity markets in China are closed until October 8 for National Day holidays.
