Obama to Trump: Keep Russia sanctions separate from nuclear talks
Wed, 18 Jan 2017 16:57:34 -0500
By Roberta Rampton and Jeff Mason WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama urged President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday to keep separate the issue of economic sanctions on Russia from the pursuit of talks to reduce nuclear stockpiles. Trump, who takes office on Friday after winning the Nov. 8 election, said in an interview with the Times of London published on Monday that he would propose offering to end sanctions on Moscow in return for a nuclear arms reduction deal. Obama's administration imposed the sanctions in 2014 after Russia's annexation of the Crimea peninsula from Ukraine.


Yellen: Expect Fed to gradually hike rates over next 3 years
Wed, 18 Jan 2017 16:56:13 -0500

Fed's Yellen says 'makes sense' to gradually raise interest rates
Wed, 18 Jan 2017 16:54:45 -0500
By Ann Saphir SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - With the U.S. economy close to full employment and inflation headed toward the Federal Reserve's 2 percent goal, it "makes sense" for the U.S. central bank to gradually lift interest rates, Fed Chair Janet Yellen said on Wednesday. "Waiting too long to begin moving toward the neutral rate could risk a nasty surprise down the road - either too much inflation, financial instability, or both," Yellen told the Commonwealth Club of California in San Francisco. "In that scenario, we could be forced to raise interest rates rapidly, which in turn could push the economy into a new recession." The Fed raised short-term rates last month for only the second time since the 2007-2009 financial crisis, when it slashed rates to near zero and began buying massive amounts of Treasuries and mortgage-backed securities to push down long-term borrowing costs.


Fed's Yellen expects drag of stronger dollar on U.S. exports to continue
Wed, 18 Jan 2017 16:54:45 -0500
SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said on Wednesday that she expects the stronger dollar, whose rise in part is fueled by expectations the Fed will gradually raise interest rates, to continue to drag on U.S. exports. In response to questions from the audience at a Commonwealth Club of California event in San Francisco, Yellen also said that while the rise in equities also can be partly attributed to expectations of future Fed rate hikes, investors should take uncertainty into account, given that unexpected big rate hikes or cuts could affect stock valuations. ...

South Korean court dismisses arrest warrant for Samsung chief
Wed, 18 Jan 2017 16:51:25 -0500
By Joyce Lee SEOUL (Reuters) - A South Korean court on Thursday dismissed a warrant to arrest the head of the Samsung Group [SAGR.UL], the country's largest conglomerate, amid a graft scandal that has led to the impeachment of President Park Geun-hye. The pre-dawn decision by the Seoul Central District Court to allow Jay Y. Lee to go home is likely to come as a major relief to the company, whose leadership vacuum Lee has tried to fill since his father suffered a heart attack in 2014. Lee, who had been questioned for 22 hours last week and was held overnight on Wednesday while the court reached its decision, left the Seoul Detention Centre carrying a white shopping bag and climbed into a car without talking to reporters.
