Stocks rose, while the yen weakened after its biggest weekly advance in four years, as investors weighed prospects for less economic stimulus before this weekâ€™s Federal Reserve meeting. Natural gas rebounded and corn fell.
The MSCI All-Country World Index advanced 0.5 percent to 365.01 at 7:05 a.m. in New York. Standard & Poorâ€™s 500 Index futures climbed 0.9 percent. Japanâ€™s currency depreciated at least 0.3 percent against its 16 major peers, weakening the most versus the rand and Australian dollar. Turkeyâ€™s lira snapped a four-day rally after police stepped up their crackdown on protesters in Istanbul and unions declared a strike. Natural gas jumped 2.2 percent after losing 2.5 percent last week, while corn futures slid 0.8 percent.
