The U.S. Federal Reserve left interest rates unchanged on Wednesday but signalled it still expects one more increase by the end of the year despite a recent bout of low inflation. The Fed, as expected, also said it would begin in October to reduce its approximately $4.2 trillion in holdings of U.S. Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities acquired in the years after the 2008 financial crisis. New economic projections released after the Fed's two-day policy meeting showed 11 of 16 officials see the "appropriate" level for the federal funds rate, the central bank's benchmark interest rate, to be in a range between 1.25 percent and 1.50 percent by the end of 2017, or 0.25 percentage points above the current level.

In line with expectations the Fed said it would begin in October to cut its roughly $4.2 trillion in U.S. Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities holdings by initially cutting up to $10 billion each month from the amount of maturing securities it reinvests.

The face of salt-to-software conglomerate Tata will change in the next 10 years as it moves forward with adopting new technologies and responds to the needs of a fast-growing nation, former chairman Ratan Tata said in a CNBC TV18 interview on Wednesday. Hinting at consolidation and possible divestments of certain businesses which once defined the group, Tata said the conglomerate may look very different in the next decade, although the 150-year-old group will always strive to retain its culture. "There will be companies who were not there earlier and companies that were there, not there 10 years from now, because they may not be relevant or they may be sold off or transferred to other companies," said Tata, who is currently chairman of the trusts that control two-thirds of holding company Tata Sons.

If all goes well, the three-in-one antibody could be used either as a long-acting treatment or a vaccine, according to Sanofi Chief Scientific Officer Gary Nabel.

The central bank confirmed it was in talks with B&N Bank's owners about the request, with a decision due in the near future, and said it had provided the bank with an emergency cash injection. There was no immediate sign of contagion and banking sector insiders said that while the problems that triggered the crises at B&N Bank, and previously Otkritie, could hit other lenders, only a few were vulnerable and the risk of a wider crisis small.

The Indian telecoms regulator's decision to reduce a fee operators pay each other for calls made from one network to another could help upstart operator Reliance Jio to step up its aggressive push for market share. While the regulator's move is a negative for market leaders Bharti Airtel, Vodafone India and Idea Cellular, which earn revenue from rivals for every call made to their networks, it will save Reliance Jio hundreds of million of dollars, analysts said. Jio, backed by India's richest man, Mukesh Ambani, has shaken up the market since its launch last year, offering unlimited free calls and cut-rate 4G data services.

https://in.finance.yahoo.com/news/going-loan-5-facts-must-123036682.html -- Going For A Loan? 5 Facts You Must Know About Your Credit ScoreWed, 20 Sep 2017 07:30:36 -0500
A good Credit Score is the key to having a good banking relationship as it has the potential to lift your worthiness to take a loan. Without a score close to 750, it is difficult to get a loan sanctioned. Despite its integral role in determining a candidate’s borrowing potential and purchasing big-ticket items through EMI, Credit Score is a mystery to many. Here are five things that you probably were not aware of about your Credit Score:
You Can Get A Loan With Zero Credit Score If you haven’t opened a credit account with any financial institution ever, your Credit Score would be ‘zero’, as banks would not have any credit record under your name. However, this does not mean that you cannot take a loan. If you have zero Credit Score, banks will not say no to you but they might ask you to provide income proof, ITR copy for the past two years, and utility bills to assess your repayment potential before lending you money.
Closing Old Credit Card Can Drop Your Score Closing an old Credit Card account reduces your credit limit, thus reducing your Credit Score for a temporary time period. An old credit account shows your transaction history, so closing it would wipe off your record. If you opt for closing a Credit Card account, try and increase your credit limit on your existing cards. Although the reason for which you decide to close your account does not reflect on your Credit Score, make sure you do not close a Credit Card account to escape an overdue outstanding loan amount. It is important to take a closure letter from the bank.
Closing An Unused Credit Card Account Can Help You In The Long Term An unused Credit Card is relatively more prone to misuse, so any unauthorised usage will lead to a drop in the Credit Score and loss of money as well. You can be caught off-guard if banks and financial institutions change the terms applicable on the card, leading to an impact on your Credit Score. So, if you have an unused Credit Card account, it is best to close it. For any future needs, you can apply for a new card based on your requirement.
Accessing Your Credit Report Can Impact Your Credit Score If your credit report is assessed in the context of loan application, your score drops by a few points. Banks need to look at your report to be able to assess your creditworthiness. Multiple loan applications only reduce your score further. However, if you check your score online, it is called a soft inquiry and doesn’t impact your Credit Score.
High Income Doesn’t Mean High Score Credit Scores indicate your creditworthiness in terms of borrowing practices and repayment pattern. The size of your income has no impact on the score if there is lack of discipline in your repayment pattern. Credit Scores are becoming more and more important every passing day with even employers and insurance companies looking at it to profile an individual. So, make sure you maintain a healthy score by going for a smart debt plan, wherein you have a proper repayment plan in place before you take a loan.
