(Reuters) -Target Corp reported a bigger-than-expected 90% fall in quarterly earnings on Wednesday and missed estimates for comparable sales as it struggled to lure inflation-hit shoppers with steep discounts on apparel, electronics and home goods. As Target relies more on discretionary categories, it is prone to take a bigger hit during tougher times than its rivals such as Walmart Inc, where groceries and packaged food items get more shelf space. Walmart beat profit estimates as its core base of low-to-middle income shoppers flocked to its stores for bargains on groceries.

Home Depot reported bigger-than-expected comparable sales growth of 5.8% in the second quarter, but that was below the average of 14% in the corresponding periods of the past two years.

SAO PAULO (Reuters) -Brazil Potash, the Canadian firm planning to build Latin America's largest potash mine in the Amazon rainforest, is willing to employ local Mura indigenous people as it seeks their backing for the sensitive project, the company said in an interview on Monday. The project in Autazes, Brazil, 75 miles (120 kms) southeast of the Amazonas state capital Manaus, would reduce Brazilian agriculture's reliance on imports for 95% of its potash needs. The Mura, who fear the mine would bring prostitution and drugs to their communities, have opposed the project.
The U.S. Federal Reserve is hiking interest rates at the most aggressive pace in a generation, but the financial conditions it needs to tighten to tame soaring inflation are heading in the wrong direction. A rally in equities and falling government bond yields since the Fed's June hike means financial conditions are actually loosening, despite the U.S. economy having been hit with a combined 150 basis points of rate hikes at that meeting and the next one. Financial conditions reflect the availability of funding in an economy.
The U.S. Federal Reserve on Tuesday issued additional guidance for banks considering activities involving cryptocurrencies, emphasizing that firms must notify the Fed beforehand and make sure whatever they do is legally permitted. The Fed said in a statement that while cryptocurrencies could present "potential opportunities" to banks, firms needed to make sure they had systems in place beforehand to ensure the volatile assets did not threaten safety and soundness or consumer protections. Banks should also notify the Fed before engaging in any crypto-related activities, and any banks that had already pursued crypto initiatives should also notify the Fed about their involvement in the digital asset space, the agency said.
