Republican President-elect Donald Trump’s decision to fish in Democratic waters for a possible cabinet member or two is smart politics. Trump likely will win kudos for bipartisanship in considering a couple of Democrats for high office, although Gary Cohn, president and chief operating officer of Goldman Sachs, reportedly is also in contention for the energy secretary slot. Trump is also playing a clever game of scrambling the 2018 Senate campaign by threatening to lure a couple of popular Democrats out of the race to enhance his party’s chances of picking up their seats.

The dollar's rally since the U.S. election is likely to run out of steam soon and the damage from its strength in the past month could be enough to put the world's largest economy into a recession, an investment chief at Saxo Bank said on Monday.

The Tokyo Stock Exchange moved Sharp shares to the bourse's second section in August after the electronics maker booked negative net assets - where liabilities exceeded assets - for the year ended in March, when the company was hit by falling sales of smartphone panels and restructuring costs.
