    Stocks climb, gold suffers as rate-hike worries ease

    Shares rose broadly worldwide on Friday, with strong technology stocks and a retreat in Treasury yields lifting Wall Street, while gold had its biggest weekly loss this year as investors shrugged off concerns about interest rate hikes. The dollar edged higher as investors positioned for a more aggressive Federal Reserve to raise U.S. interest rates three times this year. In its semiannual report to Congress released Friday, the Fed's Washington-based Board of Governors looked past a recent stock market sell-off and inflation concerns, saying it sees steady growth continuing and no serious risks on the horizon that might pause its planned pace of rate hikes.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average was pointing toward an initial gain of around 85 points, while the S&P 500, tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite, and small-cap Russell 2000 were also looking at small gains. The big news overnight is that Treasury yields tumbled and Asian stocks jumped.

    U.S. shares rise, yields drop as rate fears ebb

    Most U.S. stocks advanced on Thursday, rebounding from a day earlier, and bond yields eased off highs following more cautious talk about the potential for interest rate increases this year. Oil prices also rose, in part because the U.S. dollar hit session lows in morning trading after having touched a 10-day high, as the euro was boosted by minutes from the European Central Bank's most recent policy meeting. Comments from St. Louis Fed President James Bullard on Thursday appeared to ease some investor concerns about the Federal Reserve's latest meeting.

    Stocks fall, yields and dollar rise after Fed minutes

    The benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury yield hit a four-year high, the dollar rose and stocks fell on Wednesday in a rocky session after the Federal Reserve at its latest policy meeting showed more confidence in the need to keep raising interest rates. The Fed's more upbeat take on inflation, as seen in the minutes of the Jan. 30-31 policy meeting released on Wednesday, will likely further cement expectations that new Fed chief Jerome Powell will lead his colleagues in raising rates next month. "Members agreed that the strengthening in the near-term economic outlook increased the likelihood that a gradual upward trajectory of the federal funds rate would be appropriate," the Fed said in the minutes.

    Samsung Electronics to slash OLED panel production as iPhone X demand disappoints: Nikkei

    Samsung Electronics Co (KSE:005930.KS - News) will slash output of its organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panels in response to its customer Apple Inc's (:AAPL.O) decision to cut production of iPhone X amid weak demand, the Nikkei reported on Tuesday. Samsung Display now plans to make OLED panels for 20 million or fewer iPhones at the South Chungcheong plant in the January-March quarter, significantly lower than its initial goal of supplying panels for 45 million to 50 million iPhones, the Nikkei reported. Samsung Electronics stock fell as much as 2.3 percent in morning trade, while shares of Japanese OLED component makers, such as Hodogaya Chemical Co (:4112.T) and Hirata Corp (:6258.T), also declined.
