President-elect Donald Trump takes center stage with his first postelection news conference Wednesday, and traders are looking for more details around the promises that have helped drive the Dow up 9 percent since Election Day. Another test for the rally will be the start of fourth-quarter earning seasons, and first up are financials, the leaders of the Trump rally with a near 18 percent gain since Nov. 8. JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America,Wells Fargo, PNC Financial and others report Friday. Earnings for the S&P 500 are expected to increase by 6.1 percent in the fourth quarter, but the S&P financial sector earnings are expected to have the biggest gains, with earnings up 15.7 percent, according to Thomson Reuters. The sector has bounced hard on the prospect of higher interest rates and a steeper yield curve, which would help bank profitability. The stocks also are rising on Trump's vow to end excess regulation. Besides banks, names like Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley are in that financial group and both are trading at near decade highs. Goldman is up 35 percent since the election, and has been leading the Dow. More»

Australian Defence Minister Marise Payne has said she is confident Indonesia will soon restore military ties with her nation. Indonesia suspended all military co-operation on Wednesday, saying "a lot of things needed to be improved". Australian officials said the complaint concerned "teaching materials" at an Australian army language facility. Indonesia's President Joko Widodo said relations with Australia remained strong despite the furore. "I think our relations with Australia remain in a good condition. The problem has to be clarified first at the operational level so the situation will not heat up," he told reporters. Mr Widodo also confirmed he had sanctioned the suspension, despite his spokesman earlier denying it was his decision. Senator Payne said the sensitive topic of West Papua was also raised by Indonesia. She said an official inquiry into the dispute would be completed soon. More»

President-elect Donald Trump has backed Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in casting doubt on intelligence alleging Russian meddling in the US election. Mr Assange said Russia was not the source for the site's mass leak of emails from the Democratic Party. Mr Trump has now backed that view in a tweet. He wrote: "Assange... said Russians did not give him the info!" The president-elect has repeatedly refused to accept the conclusions of the US intelligence community. Several US agencies including the FBI and the CIA believe Russia directed hacks against the Democratic Party and the campaign of its presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. The information, released through Wikileaks and other outlets, was intended to help Mr Trump win the election, say the FBI and CIA. More»

The trial of Choi Soon-sil, the woman at the centre of an influence-peddling scandal involving South Korea's president, has got under way. Ms Choi, a close friend of President Park Geun-hye, is charged with abuse of power and attempted fraud. Separately, the Constitutional Court began considering President Park's impeachment over the scandal. That trial, where the court must ratify or overturn a parliamentary impeachment vote, began despite Ms Park's absence. Proceedings opened on Tuesday but were curtailed because Ms Park did not attend. On Thursday the court went ahead anyway. Her lawyer has previously said Ms Park will not be in court "unless there are special circumstances", Yonhap news agency reported. More»

President Barack Obama has urged fellow Democrats to fight for his healthcare bill, as the incoming Trump team vowed to make a repeal of the law a priority. In a two-hour private meeting Mr Obama sought to rally members of his party, as Republicans took their first steps to dismantle his signature bill. Vice President-elect Mike Pence was also at Congress, where he told his party they would replace Obamacare. The law has extended health coverage to an estimated 20 million Americans. But the 2010 Affordable Care Act law has been hit by soaring premium costs and major insurers withdrawing from the scheme, leaving Americans with fewer choices for coverage. More»

Assembly elections will begin in five Indian states in February, the Election Commission of India has announced. Voting will be held in Uttar Pradesh, Goa, Punjab, Uttarakhand and Manipur, Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi said. Polling will be held from 4 February to 8 March. Votes will be counted on 11 March. Analysts say that the effect of the rupee ban is expected to play a crucial role in all five state elections. The government said the ban on 500 and 1,000 rupee notes was to curb corruption and the illegal hoarding of wealth as well as promote a shift to digital modes of payment. However, critics said the ban mostly impacted the poor and agrarian communities who largely depend on cash for their daily transactions. Mr Zaidi said a total of 160 million voters would be eligible to cast their votes in the five states. More»

Indonesia has suspended all military cooperation with Australia, saying "a lot of things needed to be improved". Army spokesman Maj Gen Wuryanto said the halt came into force in December and a broad range of activities were affected, including joint training. Australian Defence officials confirmed Indonesia had halted all defence cooperation over "teaching materials". Bilateral relations have been tense at times in recent years, although there were recent signs of improvement. "All forms of co-operation with the Australian military, including joint training, have been temporarily withheld. I hope it can be resolved as soon as possible," Maj Gen Wuryanto said. Australia's Defence Minister Marise Payne said later in a statement: "Late last year concerns were raised by an Indonesian TNI (Indonesian National Armed Forces) officer about some teaching materials and remarks at an Army language training facility in Australia."

The UK's ambassador to the EU urged British colleagues in Brussels to challenge "muddled thinking and... speak truth to power" as he quit ahead of Brexit talks, the BBC has learnt. Writing to staff, Sir Ivan Rogers said ministers needed to hear "unvarnished" and "uncomfortable" views from Europe. Earlier it emerged Sir Ivan would be leaving his post several months early. The government said he had quit so a successor could be in place before Brexit negotiations started. Sir Ivan's note to staff, obtained by the BBC, confirmed this but also warned the "government will only achieve the best for the country if it harnesses the best experience we have". Downing Street said it would not comment on the resignation email, but Sir Ivan was "free to express his own opinions". Outgoing ambassadors often write valedictory notes but few are as explosive as this. Sir Ivan does not name names but his remarks do not need much decoding. More»
