    Dollar falls, oil-exporter currencies rise after Saudi attacks; yen firms

    The dollar fell while safe havens and currencies of oil-producing countries rallied on Monday, following an attack on Saudi Arabian refining facilities that disrupted global oil supply and heightened Middle East tensions. Oil prices surged nearly a fifth at one point following the strikes on two plants, including the world's biggest petroleum processing facility in Abqaiq, which knocked out more than 5% of global oil supply. Yemen's Iran-aligned Houthi group claimed responsibility for the damage, but the U.S. has pointed the finger directly at Iran.

    Why the Saudi oil attack is a ‘big deal’ that could be a ‘game changer’ in stock markets and crude prices

    An intensifying Middle East conflict is threatening to throw the world's energy market into disarray after weekend drone attacks destroyed parts of Saudi Aramco's Abqaiq plant — one of the world's largest processors of oil — and a separate nearby oil field. On Saturday, the drone attacks, directed at Saudi Arabian oil facilities that account for nearly 10 million barrels of crude-oil production, resulted in massive plumes of black smoke emanating from the oil field, and a shutdown that could lead to about 50% of its production being at least temporarily thrown offline. Prominent crude-oil strategist Phil Flynn at Price Futures Group told MarketWatch on Sunday that the drone strike was a “big deal” that could result in a major spike in crude-oil prices, because of the potential disruption to global supplies.

    Brent crude oil prices surge by 19pc as Saudi Arabia struggles to restore production after Houthi drone attack

    Brent crude surged the most on record after a drone strike on a Saudi Arabian oil facility removed about 5pc of global supplies. The benchmark oil futures jumped as much as $11.73 a barrel (£9.40) to $71.95 as the market opened Monday in Asia, the biggest advance in dollar-terms since futures started trading in 1988. State energy producer Saudi Aramco lost about 5.7m barrels per day of output on Saturday after 10 unmanned aerial vehicles struck the world's biggest crude-processing facility in Abqaiq and the kingdom's second-biggest oil field in Khurais.

    U.S. blames Iran for Saudi oil attack, Trump says 'locked and loaded'

    U.S. President Donald Trump said on Sunday the United States was "locked and loaded" for a potential response to the attack on Saudi Arabia's oil facilities, after a senior U.S. administration official said Iran was to blame. Trump also authorized the use of the U.S. emergency oil stockpile to ensure stable supplies after the attack, which shut 5% of world production and sent crude prices soaring more than 19% in early trade on Monday, before moderating to show a 10% gain.

    Oil soars after Saudi facility attacks, weak China data hits shares

    Oil surged to four-month highs on Monday after weekend attacks on crude facilities in Saudi Arabia sparked supply fears, while shares in Asia extended losses as bleak economic data from China sapped investors' risk appetite. Crude futures on both sides of the Atlantic hit their highest since May, but came off their peaks after U.S. President Donald Trump authorized the use of the country's emergency stockpile to ensure stable supply. Trump also said the United States was "locked and loaded" for a potential response to the strikes on the Saudi facilities, which shut 5% of world production, after a senior official in his administration said Iran was to blame.

    Iran rejected accusations by the United States that it was behind attacks on Saudi oil plants that risk disrupting world energy supplies and warned on Sunday that U.S. bases and aircraft carriers in the region were in range of its missiles.

    L Brands Inc.'s plan to turn around the Victoria's Secret lingerie brand includes offering fewer discounts, which could be a big problem for customers, analysts say.

Gundlach, the outspoken chief executive of DoubleLine, mockingly delivered a presentation called the “Greatest Economy Ever,” an allusion to President Donald Trump's characterization, which the famed bond investor doesn't share. Gundlach, to a London audience, outlined a number of worrying signs, including declines in purchasing indexes, which peaked at right about the same time the U.S. and global stock markets (SPX)did.

    Oil prices soar more than 10% after Saudi plant attacks

    Oil prices surged more than 10 percent Monday after attacks on two Saudi Arabian plants that slashed output in the world's top producer by half, with Donald Trump blaming Iran and raising the possibility of a military strike on the country. West Texas Intermediate jumped 10.68 percent to $60.71 and Brent climbed 11.77 percent to $67.31 in early Asia trading following the blasts at facilities run by state-owned giant Aramco. Tehran denies the accusations but the news has revived fears of a conflict in the tinderbox Middle East after a series of attacks on oil tankers earlier this year that were also blamed on Iran.

    Millennials are resorting to this questionable tactic to buy their first homes

    Millennial home buyers are going to some troubling lengths to foot the bill for their first homes, according to a new survey. Millennials are more likely than their older counterparts to fund their down payment and closing costs by dipping into retirement savings (13%, versus 8% of Generation Xers and 7% of baby boomers), saving money by moving in with family or friends (14%, versus 5% of Gen Xers and 2% of boomers) or selling personal items (12%, versus 5% of Gen Xers and 2% of boomers), a recent Bankrate survey of 2,582 U.S. adults found. They're trying to exhaust all their options, and they're certainly doing that at higher levels than the other generations.
