    BHP, Vale get short extension on Brazil mine disaster settlement

    BHP Billiton (BHP.AX) (BLT.L) and Vale SA (VALE5.SA) have been granted an extension until Nov. 16 by a Brazilian court to negotiate a settlement on a $47 billion (35.59 billion pounds) claim stemming from the Samarco mine disaster in 2015, BHP said on Tuesday. Brazilian federal prosecutors in May last year served the joint partners in the Samarco iron ore mine with a 155 billion Brazilian real claim to pay for the social, environmental and economic costs of cleaning up the country’s worst environmental disaster. A settlement date of Oct. 30 was set by the court earlier this year after the parties failed to reach an agreement by a previous deadline of June 30.

    EM fund managers move to more exotic currencies as dollar hits lows

    Some of 2017’s top-performing emerging market fund managers are reshuffling their currency holdings, paring back bets on some of the asset class' big names and shifting to more exotic currencies like the Czech koruna, Uruguayan peso and the Egyptian pound. The dollar's bounceback in September, including its best week of the year to close the month, has not changed managers' underlying bearishness on the currency. The shift represents a sense that the greenback’s remarkable slide against rivals like the Mexican peso and Brazilian real may stall - the dollar bounced to a three-month high versus the peso on Thursday - while other currencies are due for a rally.

    Services group Sodexo sees some impact from euro's strength

    Sodexo (EXHO.PA), a French facilities management and vouchers group, said on Monday there would be some impact on its results from the recent rise in the euro (EUR=). "The currency impact on operating profit will remainjust slightly positive, but less than in the first half, given the recent strength of the euro against the U.S. dollar, sterling and the Brazilian real," Sodexo said in a statement. Sodexo, the world's second-biggest catering services company after Compass Group (CPG.L), confirmed its guidance for operating profit growth at the bottom of an 8-9 percent range for 2017, and announced the completion of the sale of its Vivabox USA arm to Lion Equity Partners.

    Speculators' net short dollar bets largest since May 2016 -CFTC, Reuters

    Speculators boosted their net short bets on the U.S. dollar this week to their largest since the second week of May 2016 amid political tension in Washington and diminished expectations of accelerated interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve.

In a wider measure of dollar positioning that includes net futures contracts in the New Zealand dollar, Mexican peso, Brazilian real and Russian ruble, the U.S. dollar posted a net short position valued at $11.09 billion, the largest since January 2013, from $9.55 billion a week earlier.

    Brazil reverses preliminary decision on Petrobras hedge accounting

    Brazil's securities industry watchdog CVM has reversed a preliminary decision ordering state-controlled Petróleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) to restate financial statements in recent years to include the impact of currency protection on debt and other balance sheet items. In a securities filing late on Tuesday, Petrobras said the watchdog's board scrapped an earlier internal ruling asking for the restatement of results from the second and third quarters of 2013, and to the years of 2014, 2015 and 2016 to account for impairments related to certain hedging transactions. Petrobras announced changes in the accounting of so-called currency hedging in July 2013 to limit the impact of a weakening Brazilian real on debt.
