    From the Floor: Markets sigh with relief despite China reserves dive
    Market sentiment improved broadly after China's foreign-exchange reserves plunged somewhat less than feared, though the $100 billion drop was formidable by any reckoning. Friday's US nonfarm payrolls were mildly hawkish for Fed policy ahead, EURUSD looked to get a foothold at new levels above 1.10, and core bond yields stayed on their downward course.

    Six top oil nations to hold emergency talks: Iranian news service

    The Sydney Morning Herald
    Six oil-producing countries have agreed on an emergency meeting between Opec and non-Opec member states, the Iranian oil ministry's news service Shana has reported, citing Venezuela's Oil Minister Eulogio Del Pino. “Iran has agreed to take part in the meeting and Russia has already announced its agreement,” Shana quoted Del Pino as saying. “Iran is the first Opec country which I visited to hold talks. Earlier, I visited Russia, which is not an Opec member”. Del Pino, who was in Tehran on Wednesday, stopped in Russia earlier this week and held talks with officials including Rosneft CEO Igor Sechin. Del Pino and Sechin talked about possible co-ordination to stabilise oil markets, Venezuela's oil ministry said.

We take a look at some of the numbers to look out for.

    Oil-obsessed markets ignore the ultimate liquid asset

    South China Morning Post
    In any country, there are two truly liquid assets that drive economic activity – oil and water. Water supply has geopolitical and economic effects on a local and global scale. China’s attempts to harness the waters of the Yarlung Tsangpo have been a source of tension between China and India. While Singapore imports water from Malaysia, it has also constructed desalination plants. Singapore has become a focal point for water technology. In Africa, Ethiopia’s proposed Grand Renaissance Dam makes Cairo fearful of the effects on the Nile. Water scarcity has profound implications for geopolitics and economic development. Markets pay close attention to the price of oil but water’s geopolitical importance cannot be ignored.
