    LONDON - Strength in heavyweight commodity stocks and banks
lifted Britain's top share index on Friday, as investors' risk
appetite returned after second-quarter growth rates in China
slowed, fuelling expectations for more stimulus moves.  
    The FTSE 100 closed up 57.88 points, or 1.0 percent,
at 5,666.13, regaining all of the previous session's drop to end
a volatile week almost where it started on Monday at 5,662.

    HONG KONG- Shares were set to start the week higher on
Monday, lifted by strength in Chinese growth plays, but a slew
of profit warnings will likely temper any further relief from
China GDP figures that were in line with expectations. 
   The Hang Seng Index was set to start up 0.9 percent at
19,265.34. The China Enterprises Index of top Chinese
listings in Hong Kong was indicated to start up 0.76 percent.

    FOREIGN EXCHANGE 
    SYDNEY- The euro and high-beta currencies like the
Australian dollar started trading on Monday with a spring in
their step, following a rally late last week in part on the back
of diminishing worries about China's economic health.  
    The euro also held firm, trading at $1.2250 versus
$1.2241 late on Friday in New York, pulling further away from a
two-year trough around $1.2162 plumbed last week. Against the
yen, the single currency edged up to 97.80, off a
six-week low of 96.43.

    TREASURIES 
    NEW YORK - U.S. government debt prices fell on Friday as
news of a surprise rise in producer prices and a rebound in Wall
Street stocks reduced the safe-haven appeal of bonds, although
benchmark yields remained near historic lows.  
    On lighter-than-usual volume, benchmark 10-year notes
 traded 5/32 lower in price to yield 1.49 percent, up
from 1.48 percent late Thursday.
    The 30-year bond lost 12/32 in price to yield
2.58 percent, up from 2.56 percent late Thursday. The bond yield
is just 7 basis points above its record low set on June 1.

    COMMODITIES

by 0023 GMT, after rallying 1 percent on Friday.

inched down 0.3 percent to $7,674.50 per tonne by 0115 GMT,
after rising 1.9 percent in the previous session. Prices hit a

above the government's target, soothing concerns about slowing
growth in the world's second largest economy.

barrel, reaching $103.44 intraday and pushing above its 50-day
