Greek Contagion Concerns Attract Bears to Spain, Italy - Bloomberg

But they are ready to discuss relief with Greeces next government. The ECB is expected to announce a quantitative-easing program on Jan. 22, three days before the Greek election. European stocks fell last week on speculation the central banks stimulus measures will fail to shore up the economy. Its really difficult because youve got the next ECB meeting just before the Greek election, said William Davies, the London-based head of global equities at Threadneedle Investments, which manages about $140 billion in assets. If we were to see an increased likelihood of a Greek exit, equities in the euro zone would come under further pressure.

China arrests more than 110 people for selling pork from diseased pigs, tons of meat seized | Fox Business

The Public Security said in a statement Monday that more than 1,000 tons of contaminated pork and 48 tons of cooking oil produced from the meat had been seized in the operation that began last year across 11 provinces. The ministry said the suspects belonged to 11 different syndicates who purchased pigs that had died of disease from farmers at cut-rate prices then processed them into bacon, ham and oil. It said the producers sourced the pigs by bribing government livestock insurance agents, several of whom were also sent for prosecution. A series of scandals in China have deeply undermined public trust in food safety.

Gold climbs to one-month high on weaker dollar, oil - Yahoo Finance

Global oil prices are at their lowest level since April 2009. Weaker oil prices tend to hurt gold as they reduce the need for gold as a hedge against oil-led inflation. But equity markets are taking a hit from persistent weakness in oil prices, fuelling the flight to safety. "Normally, lower oil prices are a negative for gold, but prolonged oil price declines may be fanning concerns that further losses could have a dislocative impact on the financial markets and oil-exporting economies," HSBC analyst James Steel said. "This is creating safe-haven demand for gold." Spot gold climbed to $1,228.20 an ounce, its highest since Dec. 11, and was trading up 0.3 percent at $1,226.76 at 0329 GMT.
