Stocks and Bonds: World


Wall Street rose in afternoon trading on Friday after an historically weak reading of US wage growth lent weight to the view that the US Federal Reserve could delay a rate increase. All three major indexes were poised to end the month higher as earnings reports pushed global concerns to the background.

Wall Street ended flat on Thursday as investors digested ho-hum corporate earnings and new data showed that the economy grew more quickly in the second quarter. Procter & Gamble, Facebook and Whole Foods Market all fell after quarterly reports that left investors wanting more.
Japan's Nikkei share average was little changed on Friday as investors awaited more earnings from blue-chip companies and looked for signs of whether China's volatile stock markets were starting to take a toll on its economy. The Nikkei share average was flat at 20,526.84 points by mid-morning after traversing positive and negative territory. For the week, the index has been flat while it looks set for a gain of 1.5 percent for the month.
Britain's top equity index gained ground for the fourth day in a row on Friday, lifted by a rise in the shares of engine maker Rolls Royce and cruise ship company Carnival. The blue-chip FTSE 100 index closed up 0.4 percent at 6,696.28 points. The FTSE is up around 2 percent since the start of 2015 but some 6 percent below a record high of 7,122.74 points set in April.
European shares fell slightly after hitting a one-week high on Friday, with commodity stocks leading the market lower after prices of crude oil and major industrial metals dropped on supply-demand concerns. The European oil and gas index fell 1 percent as oil prices fell after producers' cartel Opec indicated there would be no output cuts despite a huge global oversupply, while the STOXX Europe 600 basic resources index was down 1.8 percent after copper fell on lingering worries about the metals' demand in top consumer China.
Indian shares ended more than 1 percent higher on Friday, led by banks on the government's plan to inject extra capital into state-run lenders struggling with bad loans, and as worries over corporate earnings eased. The BSE index ended up 1.48 percent, while the NSE index closed 1.32 percent higher. Both indexes ended the week largely flat.
Shanghai shares closed down 1.13 percent on Friday, after the market regulator announced a crackdown on computerised programme selling that it blamed for recent volatility, dealers said. The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index dropped 42.04 points to 3,663.73 on turnover of 460.5 billion ($75.3 billion). The index slumped 10 percent over the week.
