From the running Telegraph blog: 15.43 The Daily Telegraph's city editor, Richard Fletcher, points out on Twitter that we're heading for the longest losing streak in eight years unless the FTSE 100 picks up this afternoon: Twitter The FTSE 100 is currently down 1.1pc.

  6. Belfast the new Canary Wharf! Forgive me. Any new jobs are a good thing: 300 jobs for Belfast A financial sector company has announced plans to create more than 300 new jobs in Belfast. The expansion by Capita's life and pensions division at its centre in the north of the city will create 336 posts over the next four years. Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster welcomed the announcement, which follows an offer of more than £1m support by Invest NI. The minister said: "These new jobs, which will be created over the next four years, are very welcome in the current economic climate and offer a wide variety of opportunities including management and supervisory positions". The scheme aims to create 4,000 jobs by 2014 and includes a range of temporary measures to support individuals to start a new business as well as employment support for established businesses. Capita has operated at Beacon House, Clarendon Dock, for almost five years, servicing global companies such as Prudential, MetLife and Aviva. Anne Marie McGoldrick, operations director for life and pensions in Capita said: "We are forecasting significant sales growth for our Belfast operation over the next three years and in order to facilitate that growth, we will need to quadruple our employee numbers". http://www.u.tv/News/300-jobs-for-Belfast/eaa3f801-c168-4427-9fc7-7a03255c38f8
  7. Taken from the Telegraph live blog: Latest 15.30 An excellent graph from Reuters which shows why the bad Philly Fed numbers today (see 15.10 post) are such a disaster for markets - they generaly presage what the broader US-wide ISM manufacturing index will show:
