Euro, shares gain as Spain dodges rating downgrade  NEW YORK: Global stocks rose and the euro hit a one-month high on Wednesday, helped by brighter prospects for resolving Spain's debt woes, but disappointing quarterly earnings from Intel Corp and IBM weighed on US equity markets.   US and German government debt prices fell after Spain avoided a damaging ratings downgrade from Moody's and stronger-than-expected US housing data pointed to an improving economy, which reduced safe-haven demand.   Growing speculation that Spain will ask for a bailout next month lifted the euro. A possible line of credit to Spain and some easing of German opposition to aid for Greece and Spain were also likely to support the euro in the near term.   Wall Street opened mixed, with the Dow pulled lower by Intel and IBM. But the Nasdaq rebounded to climb higher, building on the best two-day advance for US stocks in a month.   Intel slumped 1.9 percent to $21.92 while IBM lost 3.8 percent ...

China proposes US rice import rules, but industry group wary  WASHINGTON: China has proposed a set of plant safety rules for potential imports of US milled rice, the US Agriculture Department said on Friday, but an American trade group said they may present "onerous conditions" for market access.   The draft protocol was a milestone after nearly seven years of work and improved the prospects for US rice exports to the world's most populous nation and largest rice consumer.   USDA said China completed the plant risk assessment for ...
Gold on track for biggest weekly loss in 2 months  NEW YORK: Gold eased on Friday and was set for its biggest weekly loss in two months as better US consumer sentiment and improved jobs data stirred worries that the Federal Reserve might withdraw its bullion-friendly stimulus sooner than expected.   The metal weakened after data showed US consumer sentiment unexpectedly rose to a five-year high.
