Election 2014

More than 814 million people — a number larger than the population of Europe — are eligible to vote in the world’s biggest democratic exercise.  Full Coverage 

GLOBAL MARKETS ROUNDUP
    * Asian shares edged higher on Monday as further signs of a
stabilising Chinese economy boosted sentiment, but stagnant U.S.
budget talks which threaten to derail the world's largest
economy kept investors cautious and capped prices. 
    * The euro rose to a six-week high against the dollar on
Monday, after upbeat data on Chinese manufacturing helped to
trigger stop-loss buying of the common currency. 
    * Oil rose on Friday, notching its first monthly gain since
August, as the market continued to balance risks to demand from
the U.S. budget standoff against concerns about disruption to
Middle East supplies. 
    * Benchmark U.S. Treasury debt prices were little changed on
Friday as profit taking from four days of price gains was offset
by safe-haven bidding on anxiety about the lack of progress in
budget talks in Washington.
