LONDON, July 13 Following are five big themes likely to dominate thinking of investors and traders in the coming week and the Reuters stories related to them.
LONDON, July 13 Emerging market shares edged toward their first weekly gain in over a month on Friday, though there was some serious damage showing, including the worst week for Turkey's lira since the financial crisis a decade ago.
LONDON Turkey's financial markets are being battered. The lira is at a record low after slumping more than 20 percent this year, Istanbul's stock market has just had its worst day in over two years and investors are dumping the country's bonds.
LONDON Britain is to almost double the funding it provides to countries in the Western Balkans to 80 million pounds and ramp up its number of security staff in the region to try and tackle organised crime gangs.
LONDON S&P Global is watching Turkey closely, the rating agency said on Tuesday, and it warned that President Tayyip Erdogan's move to install his son-in-law as finance minister showed power in the country was now increasingly centralized.
LONDON Macedonia expects to get approval to start NATO membership talks this week, its foreign minister said on Monday.
LONDON European shares headed for a third day of gains on Thursday as reassuring economic data from Germany and a report that its big carmakers could be spared from U.S. tariffs offset another gloomy session for Asia.
LONDON, June 29 If last year's financial markets boom was down to a 'Goldilocks' global economy, 2018 has so far been all about the bears, with the worst start to a year for world stocks since 2010.
