Exit Recession Italy is projected to exit a recession for the first time in four years, and Spains gross domestic product will pick up, economists forecast. Dont sell on the weakness, said Marinelli, who helps manage 110 million euros ($130 million) of assets at Pentalpha in London. Theres probably going to be some kind of compromise, and Greece is less a systemic issue now than it used to be. Syriza, which has been leading polls, plans to seek a writedown on Greeces debt, an option that German lawmakers have said is not on the table. But they are ready to discuss relief with Greeces next government.

Julianne Moore and Eddie Redmayne won best actor drama honors. Best comedy went to "The Grand Budapest Hotel," with acting awards in that category going to Michael Keaton and Amy Adams.

The Public Security said in a statement Monday that read this more than 1,000 tons of contaminated pork and 48 tons of cooking oil produced from the meat had been seized in the operation that began last year across 11 provinces. The ministry said the suspects belonged to 11 different syndicates who purchased pigs that had died of disease from farmers at cut-rate prices then processed them into bacon, ham and oil. It said the producers sourced the pigs by bribing government livestock insurance agents, several of whom were also sent for prosecution. A series of scandals in China have deeply undermined public trust in food safety. In an exclusive interview with FOX Business, the National Security Agency director said he thinks the recent cyberattack on Sony could set a precedent for future attacks aimed at the U.S.

Weaker oil prices tend to hurt gold as they reduce the need for gold as a hedge against oil-led inflation. But equity markets are taking a hit from persistent weakness in oil prices, fuelling the flight to safety. "Normally, lower oil prices are a negative for gold, but prolonged oil price declines may be fanning concerns that further losses could have a dislocative impact on the financial markets and oil-exporting economies," HSBC analyst James Steel said. "This is creating safe-haven demand for gold." Spot gold climbed to $1,228.20 an ounce, its highest since Dec.
