  • Beijing, China

    What's up with China? Another 1.7 percent decline in the Shanghai Index, to the lowest level since March 2009, just about the worst performing large stock market in the world.

    Three factors are moving stocks and commodities Friday.

  • China

  • A one Euro coin stands on a map of Brussels.

    So euro zone members want to bring down borrowing costs in Europe?  Good idea.  That was the one tangible idea from the G20 meeting, but unfortunately they didn't say how that would be accomplished.

    Even though virtually everyone has adopted the "it doesn't matter what happens to Greece, the euro is breaking up" mantra, the markets are acting like nothing particularly important is happening.
