    Australia Retail Sales Rise Just 0.1% In June



    The total value of retail sales in Australia was up a seasonally adjusted 0.1 percent on month in June, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said on Thursday - coming in at A$25.043 billion.

    That was shy of expectations for a gain of 0.3 percent following the 0.2 percent gain in May.

    For the second quarter of 2016, retail sales advanced 0.4 percent on quarter to A$72.682 billion.

    That also was below expectations for 0.5 percent, which would have been unchanged from the three months prior.

    MetLife Profit Fails to Hit Estimates on Weaker Underwriting



    United States' biggest life insurer MetLife Inc. posted a quarterly profit that distinctly missed analysts' projections, mainly due to weaker underwriting and tax-related adjustment in two of its biggest markets. The company's net income plunged 94% to $64 million or 6 cents per share in the second quarter. Total operating earning in Americas also dropped 42% to $835 million, while Asian operating earnings descended 39% to $259 million. On an operating basis, the company earned 83 cents per share, below analysts estimates of $1.35. MetLife's earnings in the Americas were affected by weaker underwriting, while earnings from Japan were weighed down by the firm's decision to lower the sale of yen-denominated products and tax-related adjustments. The firm stated in January that it plans to split a significant portion of its U.S. Retail business due to the regulatory conditions.

    Bank of England Cuts Benchmark Interest Rate to 0.25 Percent



    The Bank of England lowered its benchmark rate to a historical low and revived a bond-buying scheme to help prop up the UK economy from the impact of the Brexit vote.

    On Thursday, the bank announced an unexpectedly large stimulus package. First, the bank lowered its benchmark interest rate to 0.25% down from 0.5% and it sees further cuts toward zero in the following months. Second, it revived a U.K. government bonds purchasing program that has been halted since 2012, and added that it would start buying corporate bonds as well. A new term-funding program for banks was also announced, providing lenders with extremely cheap four-year loans to fund lending to households and enterprises. The rate cut was supported with a unanimous vote, while 3 voted against the bond purchasing scheme.

    The bank also lowered its growth forecast for 2017 sharply, recording the largest downgrade since it started releasing such projections in 1993. It lowered its growth forecast for next year from 2.3% in May to 0.8% and pared off its 2018 projections from 2.3% to 1.8%

    Fitch Retains Austria's Rating At 'AA+'



    Fitch Ratings affirmed sovereign ratings of Austria at 'AA+' with stable outlooks late Friday.

    The rating agency said the economic growth is expected to remain on a steady upward trend and average 1.6 percent in 2016-17 after four years of sluggish activity.

    The underlying growth is forecast to pick up in 2017 as investment continues its steady recovery and net exports make a positive contribution to growth.

    The fiscal deficit was better than expected in 2015 at 1.1 percent of GDP compared with a 1.9 percent target, Fitch said.

    Further, the agency estimates Austria's fiscal policy to remain prudent, producing small primary general government surpluses during 2016-2018.

    Oil Prices Climb on Revived Output Restrain Talks by OPEC Members



    Oil prices advanced on Monday, elevating on reports of revived talks by some members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries to curb output.

    U.S. WTI crude oil futures climbed 0.5% from their last close, up by 21 cents at $42.01 per barrel while Brent crude futures were up 0.29% by 13 cents at $44.40 per barrel.

    The increase in prices were brought on by the renewed calls by several OPEC members to halt production in an effort to restrain output that is persistently outpacing demand. OPEC members including Kuwait, Ecuador and Venezuela are perceived to be behind the renewed talks according to analysts. However, sentiment is continued to be weighed down by the increase in U.S. drilling with rigs operating in the country reported to be currently at its highest number since March.

    U.S. Stocks Retreat From Record Highs



    U.S. equities climbed down from record highs on Monday as losses in healthcare shares pared gains due to elevated oil prices and a strong performance by the U.S. jobs market in July.

    The benchmark S&P 500 touched a record intraday high at the beginning of trading day before closing down at 0.09% at 2.180. 89 while the Dow Jones industrial average was down 0.08%, closing at 18, 529.29. The Nasdaq Composite fell 0.15% to 5, 213.14.

    Seven out of the 10 key S&P indexes slid, with the healthcare group leading the losses. Bristol-Myers led the drop and fell for the second day, losing 4.71% following its statement on Friday that its lung-cancer treatment drug did not pass a vital late-stage study.

    Meanwhile, the energy index advanced 1.22% with Exxon Mobil and Schlumberger climbing 1.18% and 1.6% respectively.
