    STOCKS - DAX LOSES 0.18% AS CAUTION LINGERS IN EUROPEAN MARKETS

    Investing.com - European stocks opened lower on Wednesday, as investors remained cautious despite a global rebound in market sentiment, seeing as tensions with North Korea could possibly resurface at any moment.
    During European morning trade, the EURO STOXX 50 eased 0.08%, France’s CAC 40 slipped 0.12%, while Germany’s DAX 30 fell 0.18% by 03:45 a.m. ET (07:45 GMT).
    Market sentiment was still midly supported as Hurricane Irma appeared to have caused less damage than feared and in the absence of any new provocations from North Korea.
    Irma, which had hammered the Caribbean late last week andwas one of the most powerful Atlantic hurricanes, weakened to a tropical depression, easing concerns over the severity of its financial impact.
    Separately, market participants seemed to shrug off North Korea’s rejection of sanctions imposed by the U.N. Security Council.
    The Security Council voted unanimously on Monday to step up sanctions on the peninsula, in response to its sixth nuclear test.
    U.S. President Donald Trump said Tuesday that the U.N. sanctions were a 'very small step' and 'nothing compared to ultimately what will have to happen' to combat the regime's nuclear program.
    Financial stocks were mostly higher, as French lenders BNP Paribas (PA:BNPP) and Societe Generale (PA:SOGN) rose 0.20% and 0.39%, while Germany's Commerzbank (DE:CBKG) inched up 0.04%.
    Among peripheral lenders, Italy's Intesa Sanpaolo (MI:ISP) and Unicredit (MI:CRDI) climbed 0.83% and 0.79% respectively, while Spanish banks BBVA (MC:BBVA) and Banco Santander (MC:SAN) added 0.26% and 0.22%.
    Volkswagen (DE:VOWG_p) added to gains, with shares up 0.48% after the German automaker announced plans to step up its shift to electric cars by investing more than €20 billion in zero-emission vehicles by 2030.
    French rival Peugeot SA (PA:PEUP) added 0.13%. The company's Chief Executive Carlos Tavares said on Tuesday that European policymakers were responsible for the fate of 800 jobs at Opel's engine testing facility, seeing as many are under threat from a regulatory push to promote electric cars.
    Elsewhere, the tech sector was expected to be in focus on Wednesday, a day after Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) unveiled its iPhone 8 models, as well as the highly-anticipated iPhone X. There was some disappointment however amid disappointment the tech giant will not begin taking orders on the iPhone X model until October.
    Finnish phonemaker Nokia Oyj (HE:NOKIA) shares were down 0.29% in early European trade.
    In London, FTSE 100 dropped 0.65%, as the previous session's strong UK inflation data continued to boost demand for the pound.
    UK lenders were broadly lower, as the Royal Bank of Scotland (LON:RBS) edged down 0.12% and Lloyds Banking (LON:LLOY) slid 0.60%, while Barclays (LON:BARC) dropped 0.63% and HSBC Holdings (LON:HSBA) tumbled 1.22%.
    Mining stocks added to losses on the commodity-heavy index. Shares in Rio Tinto (LON:RIO) declined 1.04% and Glencore (LON:GLEN) slumped 1.66%, while BHP Billiton (LON:BLT) retreated 1.67%.
    EasyJet PLC (LON:EZJ) was one of the top performers on the index, with shares up 1.17% following news the low cost airline will allow customers to use its website to book long-haul flights with other carriers.
    In the U.S., equity markets pointed to a lower open. The Dow Jones Industrial Average futures pointed to a 0.14% fall, S&P 500 futures signaled a 0.17% loss, while the Nasdaq 100 futures indicated a 0.23% slide.

    U.S. PRODUCER PRICES RISE LESS THAN EXPECTED IN JULY

    Investing.com – U.S. producer price inflation and its core reading increased less than expected in August, though inflationary pressures at the factory gate were on the rise, official data showed on Wednesday.
    In a report, the Commerce Department said that producer prices increased 0.2% last month, missing the forecast for a 0.3% gain and still bouncing back from a prior 0.1% drop.
    Year-over-year, the producer price index (PPI) rose 2.4% in August, slightly below expectations for a gain of 2.5% but higher than the 1.9% increase in the preceding month.
    The core producer price index, that excludes food and energy, rose 0.1% in August, missing forecasts for a gain of 0.2% and compared to the prior month’s 0.1% decline.
    Core producer prices increased at an annualized rate of 2.0% last month, below forecasts for a 2.1% increase but higher than the gain of 1.9% in July.
    Core prices are viewed by the Federal Reserve as a better gauge of longer-term inflationary pressure because they exclude the volatile food and energy categories. Furthermore, when producers pay more for goods, they are more likely to pass price increases on to the consumer, so PPI could be considered a leading indicator of inflation.
    After the report, EUR/USD was trading at 1.1985 from around 1.1977 ahead of the release of the data, GBP/USD was at 1.3282 from 1.3278 earlier, while USD/JPY was at 109.97 from 110.01 earlier.
    The US dollar index, which tracks the greenback against a basket of six major rivals, was at 91.74, compared to 91.80 ahead of the report.
    Meanwhile, U.S. stock futures pointed to a lower open. The Dow futures fell 0.08%, the S&P 500 futures lost 0.17%, while the Nasdaq 100 futures traded down 0.24%.
    Elsewhere, in the commodities market, gold futures traded at $1,337.81 a troy ounce, compared to $1,337.48 ahead of the data, while crude oil traded at $48.66 a barrel from $48.70 earlier.

    BITCOIN FALLS, CHINESE AGENCY SAYS RISKS OF EXCHANGES 'CAN'T BE IGNORED'

    Investing.com – The selloff in Bitcoin continued unabated as sentiment turned bearish in the wake of a statement from The National Internet Finance Association of China (NIFA), claiming that “financial and social risks [of bitcoin exchanges] cannot be ignored.”
    On the U.S.-based Bitfinex exchange, bitcoin fell to $3843, down $305.3 or 7.36%, well below its recent peak of $4,969. At current prices Bitcoin has a market cap of $64.09 billion.
    The National Internet Finance Association of China, a self-regulatory agency, established by the People’s Bank of China, said that Bitcoin “is becoming a tool for money laundering” and warned that virtual currency trading platforms in China are not legally established.
    Chinese regulators, however, are yet to confirmed any plan to shut down local exchanges but the statement from NIFA supports recent media reports warning that the decision to shutter local exchanges had already been made.
    “China’s central bank, working with other regulators, has drafted instructions banning Chinese platforms from providing virtual currency trading services”, the Wall Journal said Monday, citing people familiar with the matter.
    The latest crackdown on cryptocurrency activity in China comes a week after the People’s Bank of China (PboC) sent shockwaves through the cryptocurrency market, imposing a ban on individuals and businesses from raising funds through initial coin offerings (ICOs).
    The string of recent measures proposed by China to curb the use of cryptocurrencies has unsettled investors as strong demand from Far East has been a key factor supporting cryptocurrency growth.

    Bitcoin Cash fell $34, or 6.39%, to $498, while Ethereum fell 9.11% to $268.33.

    DOLLAR DOWN SLIGHTLY IN EARLY ASIA, CHINA, INDIA DATA AHEAD

    Investing.com - The dollar fell slightly against the yen in early Asia on Friday with data from China and India later in the day providing a look at foreign flows.
    USD/JPY chnged hands at 110.23. down 0.04%, while AUD/USD traded at 0.8001, down 0.04%.
    The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a trade-weighted basket of six major currencies, was last quoted down 0.38% to 92.04.
    Later in Asia, China reports FDI and new loans and India tentatively releases its trade balance data for August with an expected deficit of $11.34 billion, as well as FX reserves.
    Overnight, the dollar fell against a basket of major currencies on Thursday as a surge in sterling to one-year highs offset a duo of economic reports indicating the U.S. economy is poised for strong third-quarter economic growth.
    The dollar failed to capitalize on better-than-expected inflation and initial claims jobless data in the wake of a surge in sterling amid rising expectations that the Bank of England will raise rates sooner rather than later.
    The Labor Department said on Thursday its Consumer Price index rose 0.4% last month after edging up 0.1% in July. The uptick in consumer prices in August was the largest monthly gain in seven months and lifted the year-on-year increase in the CPI to 1.9% from 1.7% in July.
    In a separate report the U.S. Department of Labor reported that initial jobless claims decreased by 14,000 to 284,000 in the week ended Sept. 10, confounding forecasts of a 2,000 increase.
    A strong day for sterling, however, weighed on dollar sentiment, after the Bank of England kept rates unchanged but warned that interest rates were likely to rise for the first time in more than a decade in the “coming months” to curb the fast pace of inflation.

    COMMODITIES - GOLD DIPS IN ASIA AS INVESTORS GROW CAUTIOUS AHEAD OF FED VIEWS

    Investing.com - Gold prices dipped in Asia as markets grow cautious ahead of Wednesday's Fed policy statements with the details on the pace of unwinding its balance sheet awaited.
    Gold futures for December delivery on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange rose 0.14% to $1,312.70 a troy ounce.
    Overnight, gold prices fell on Monday as fading tensions on the Korean Peninsula suppressed safe-haven demand while a sharp uptick in the dollar curbed sentiment on the precious metal ahead of the Federal Reserve’s two-day meeting slated for Tuesday.
    Fresh on the heels of a two-week losing streak, gold prices started the week on the back foot as investors appeared to unwind some of their long positions in the precious metal following strong gains in both the greenback and treasury yields.
    Treasury yields rose sharply, pushing the dollar higher, amid expectations the Federal Reserve will announce that it will begin unwinding its $4.5tn bond portfolio and reaffirm its outlook that an additional rate hike remains appropriate this year, when it concludes its two-day meeting policy meeting on Wednesday.
    “What is more, bond yields in the U.S. have increased significantly of late, which makes gold less attractive as an alternative investment,” Commerzbank (DE: DE: CBKG) says. “Presumably this is also why Friday saw the second consecutive daily outflow from gold ETFs [exchange-traded funds].”
    Gold is sensitive to moves higher in both bond yields and the U.S. dollar – A stronger dollar makes gold more expensive for holders of foreign currency while a rise in U.S. rates, lift the opportunity cost of holding non-yielding assets such as bullion.
    Meanwhile, geopolitical uncertainty eased, reducing demand for safe-haven gold as investors downplayed U.S-North Korea tensions and piled into risker assets such as equities.
    “Investors have been programmed to more or less ignore stuff with Korea. The last two or three times this kind of thing occurred we went down a little, only to turn back higher. We’ve learned to buy on the dips,” said Terry Morris, senior vice president and senior equity manager for National Penn Investors Trust Company.

    DOLLAR INDEX SLIPS LOWER WITH EYES ON FED DECISION

    Investing.com - The dollar slipped lower against other major counterparts on Wednesday, as investors remained cautious ahead of the Federal Reserve's policy statement due later in the day and amid fresh geopolitical concerns.
    EUR/USD added 0.12% to a one-week high of 1.2010.
    Sentiment on the greenback remained fragile as investors awaited the outcome of the Fed's monthly policy meeting.
    The U.S. central bank was widely expected to leave interest rates on hold, but it was also likely to announce plans to trim its $4.2 trillion in bond holdings.
    The safe-haven yen and Swiss franc, with USD/JPY down 0.21% at 111.35 and with USD/CHF shedding 0.24% to 0.9604.
    Traders were also cautious amid potentially higher tensions between the U.S. and North Korea following hawkish statements from U.S. President Donald Trump.
    In his first speech before the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, Trump said 'the United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself and its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.'
    Elsewhere, GBP/USD edged 0.18% higher to 1.3525, off Monday's 15-month peak of 1.3619.
    The New Zealand dollar was stronger, as NZD/USD climbed 0.77% to a six-week high of 0.7370 after official data earlier showed that New Zealand's current account surplus swung into a deficit of NZ$620,000 in the second quarter from a surplus of NZ$240,000 in the previous quarter.
    Analysts were expected a current account deficit of NZ$880,000 in the last quarter.
    The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a trade-weighted basket of six major currencies, was down 0.12% at 91.51 by 02:15 a.m. ET (06:15 GMT),the lowest since September 11.

    COMMODITIES - CRUDE OIL PRICES MIXED AS MARKET LOOKS TO U.S. RIG COUNT

    Investing.com - Crude oil prices were narrowly mixed in Asia with weekly rig count figures in the U.S. later in the day likely providing short-term direction on supply.
    On the New York Mercantile Exchange crude futures for November delivery rose 0.02% to $50.70 a barrel, while on London\'s Intercontinental Exchange, Brent eased 0.07% to $56.15 a barrel.
    Overnight, oil prices settled higher on Wednesday, as bearish data showing U.S. supplies of crude oil rose more than expected was overshadowed by growing expectations that Opec will decide to extend its agreement to cut oil output.
    A report from the Energy Information Administration (EIA) showing crude stockpiles rose more than expected last week briefly pared earlier gains amid growing investor optimism on a possible extension to the Opec-led agreement to cut oil output.
    Inventories of U.S. crude rose by roughly 4.6m barrels in the week ended Sept. 15, confounding expectations of a rise of about only 3.4m barrels. It was the third weekly build in crude stockpiles.
    Gasoline inventories, one of the products that crude is refined into, fell by roughly 2.13m barrels, missing expectations of a draw of 2.14m barrels while distillate stockpiles fell by 5.7m barrels, topping expectations of a decline of 1.6m barrels.
    The third-weekly build in US crude stockpiles comes after heavy flooding due to storm Harvey knocked out nearly quarter of the U.S. refining capacity in August, pressuring demand for crude oil, the primary input at refineries.
    The bullish start to the week for crude prices follows comments from Iraqi oil minister Jabar al-Luaibi, in which he said that Iraq and other OPEC members are considering options to its production-cut agreement, including an extension beyond March and a deeper output cut.
    In May, Opec and non-Opec members agreed to extend production cuts for a period of nine months until March, but stuck to production cuts of 1.8 million bpd agreed in November last year.

    STOCKS - DAX SLIPS AS GEOPOLITICAL RISKS WEIGH ON GLOBAL MARKETS

    Investing.com - European markets moved lower on Friday, despite upbeat economic reports from France and Germany, as fresh geopolitical tensions between the U.S. and North Korea dampened market sentiment around the globe.
    The EURO STOXX 50 dipped 0.04%, France’s CAC 40 fell 0.25%, while Germany’s DAX 30 was down 0.08% by 03:45 a.m. ET (07:45 GMT).
    Sentiment was hit after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said on Friday that Pyongyang will consider the 'highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history' against the U.S. in response to President Donald Trump's threat to destroy the country.
    Shortly after, North Korea's Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho said his country could conduct a hydrogen bomb test in the Pacific Ocean of an unprecedented scale.
    In his first speech before the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, Trump said 'the United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself and its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.'
    Investors seemed to shrug off data released earlier Friday by research group Markit showing that manufacturing and service sector activity in Germany and in France expanded more than expected this month.
    Financial stocks were mixed, as French lenders BNP Paribas (PA:BNPP) and Societe Generale (PA:SOGN) rose 0.24% and 0.46%, while Germany's Deutsche Bank (DE:DBKGn) and Commerzbank (DE:CBKG) declined 0.66% and 0.64%.
    Among peripheral lenders, Italy's Intesa Sanpaolo (MI:ISP) and Unicredit (MI:CRDI) dipped 0.01% and 0.06% respectively, while Banco Santander (MC:SAN) eased up 0.05% and BBVA (MC:BBVA) retreated 0.36% in Spain.
    Elsewhere, Deutsche Lufthansa AG (DE:LHAG) shares tumbled 1.60% as the German airline company is expected to get a large part of AirBerlin, filed for insolvency in August. UK rival easyJet (LON:EZJ) is also still in the race for getting some assets.
    In London, FTSE 100 fell 0.27%, as investors were eyeing a speech from UK Prime Minister Theresa May scheduled later in the trading session.
    Reports earlier in the week suggested that the UK would be ready to pay €20 billion for a two-year transition period after Brexit.
    Smiths Group (LON:SMIN) was one of the worst performers on the index, with shares down 4.09% after the engineering company reported pretax profits of £528 million for the full year ended Jul 31, up 17% year-on-year.
    The group also reported an 11% increase in operating profit to £589 million.
    Mining stocks added to losses, as Glencore (LON:GLEN) declined 1.33% and Anglo American (LON:AAL) plummeted 1.69%, while rivals Antofagasta (LON:ANTO) and BHP Billiton (LON:BLT) retreated 1.79% and 2.27% respectively.
    In the financial sector, stocks were broadly on the downside. Shares in the Royal Bank of Scotland (LON:RBS) edged down 0.19% and HSBC Holdings (LON:HSBA) dropped 0.51%, while Barclays (LON:BARC) lost 0.97% and Lloyds Banking (LON:LLOY) tumbled 1.04%.
    Meanwhile, shares in Johnson Matthey (LON:JMAT) jumped 1.03% after the chemicals specialist announced on Thursday plans to invest £200 million in bringing to market a cobalt-free battery material it claims will cut the cost and increase the range of electric vehicles.
    In the U.S., equity markets pointed to a lower open. The Dow Jones Industrial Average futures pointed to a 0.17% slip, S&P 500 futures signaled a 0.19% loss, while the Nasdaq 100 futures indicated a 0.31% decline.
