South African stocks ended with little changed JOHANNESBURG: South African stocks ended a see-saw session little changed on Friday as investors refrained from making aggressive bets ahead of the long holiday weekend amid lack of progress in the United States to avert a looming fiscal crisis.   Signs of a deepening recession in the euro zone in the form of bleak German manufacturing data also gave players pause for caution after pushing the domestic stock market to three successive record highs this week.   South African markets will ...
South Africa JOHANNESBURG: South Africa's rand firmed against the dollar on Friday, supported by a stronger euro, although a looming African National Congress (ANC) leadership election next week is keeping investors uneasy about holding the rand.   By 0654 GMT the rand was at 8.6460 to the greenback, firmer than Thursday's New York close of 8.6600.   Market analysts expect the rand to remain range bound between 8.60 and 8.70 amid relatively thin pre-Christmas trade.   "For now we're expecting rand to remain ...
South Africa stocks book record close for third day  JOHANNESBURG: South African stocks booked a record closes on Wednesday, extending their run into a third day, as hopes of further US stimulus boosted riskier assets worldwide.   Mining shares topped the gainers' list on the benchmark JSE Top-40 index as metal prices cruised higher with the price of copper at its strongest level in two months.   The stock market has hit a string record highs this year, largely unmoved by a global economic slowdown, US fiscal problems, ...

Iraq sees near-record 3.7mbpd oil output in 2013  VIENNA: Iraq, the world's fastest growing crude exporter, expects more quick gains next year as foreign companies push production towards the highest level ever, Iraqi Oil Minister Abdul-Kareem Luaibi said on Sunday.   After stagnating for decades due to wars and sanctions, Iraq's oil output began to rise in earnest in 2010 after Baghdad secured service contracts with companies such as BP, Eni , Exxon Mobil and Royal Dutch Shell.   Flows have now reached 3.4 million barrels per ...
South African shares fall as gold miners lose lustre JOHANNESBURG: South African stocks retreated from record highs on Monday as a Greek plan to buy back bonds put pressure on Johannesburg-listed bullion producers such as Gold Fields.   South Africa's biggest gold producers AngloGold Ashanti, Harmony and Gold Fields all lost more than 2 percent.   Greece announced on Monday a 10 billion euro bond buy-back plan intended to reduce its ballooning debt and open aid taps, which cheered the market's appetite for assets riskier than gold.   Uncertainty in ...
