Analysts including BitFury Vice Chairman George Kikvadze attributed the surge in the trading volume of the Japanese Bitcoin exchange market to the exit of Bitcoin traders in China.

  • UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - When President Donald Trump takes the world stage at the United Nations for the first time this week, he will share the spotlight with his envoy Nikki Haley, who has emerged as the surprising public face of U.S. foreign policy.

  • The pound fell for the first time in three days as investors took profits following the currency’s best week versus the dollar since 2009, which saw it surge on heightened expectations of an interest-rate hike by the Bank of England.
