By Herbert Lash NEW YORK (Reuters) – The dollar climbed to a more than four-year peak and global equity markets rose on Friday after data showed U.S. employers stepped up hiring in September and the jobless rate fell to a six-year low, further signs of a relatively strong economy. The strong dollar helped pushed gold below $1,200 an ounce for the first time this year after a Labor Department report showed U.S. nonfarm payrolls rose by 248,000 last month and the jobless rate fell two-tenths of a point to 5.9 percent. …

By Steve Slater LONDON (Reuters) – Royal Bank of Scotland posted a surprise 1 billion pound ($1.7 billion) pretax profit for the second quarter thanks to a turnaround in losses from bad loans, prompting it to release earnings a week early. It sent RBS shares soaring by 14 percent to 376 pence, on course for their biggest one-day gain since April 2009 and boosting chances of the taxpayer recouping what it invested – though maybe not for several more years because the price is still 25 percent below what the state paid. RBS said the profit was mainly because of an economic upturn that allowed it to write back losses that had been booked on bad loans, giving it a net release of 93 million pounds. ‘STRONGER BANK’ RBS said it was obliged to release headline numbers early because they were far better than market expectations.
SanDisk Corp gave a current-quarter revenue forecast that was below Wall Street’s estimate, warning that it would be unable to the meet the booming demand for solid-state drives and memory chips, and its shares fell 9 percent in extended trading.

BERTHOLD, N.D. (AP) — 1st Lt. Andy Parthum spends his workday 60 feet below ground awaiting the order he hopes never arrives: to launch the most powerful weapon ever devised by man. He is a nuclear “missileer” — an airman who does his duty not in the air but in a hole in the ground.
By Chuck Mikolajczak NEW YORK (Reuters) – U.S. stocks fell in a broad selloff on Tuesday, dropping for a second straight session and driving the Dow below 17,000 as investors turned cautious before the start of earnings season. Nine of the 10 primary S&P 500 sector indexes declined, with only the defensive utilities group higher for the day. “The big companies have squeezed everything out they possibly can to get these manufactured earnings to look good,” said Derrick Handwerk, managing partner of Handwerk Multi Family Office in Lansdale, Pennsylvania.
