Iran is unlikely to retaliate over the assassination of a prominent nuclear scientist before the inauguration of Joe Biden in case it jeopardizes any future sanctions relief, the top U.S. envoy on Iran told Reuters on Thursday. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, who had little public profile in Iran but had been named by Israel as a prime player in what it says is Iran’s nuclear weapons quest, was killed on Friday when he was ambushed on a highway near Tehran and his car sprayed with bullets. Elliott Abrams, Washington's special representative on Iran and Venezuela, said in an interview that Tehran was "desperately" in need of sanctions relief from the United States and that would be a key calculation in their decision-making as President-elect Biden takes over from President Donald Trump on Jan. 20.

This bearish take on the dollar was the near unanimous verdict of investors attending the annual Reuters Investment Outlook summit this week, who predicted that non-U.S. assets, from commodities to emerging markets to European stocks will perform well while U.S. interest rates remain stapled to the floor. "The markets are right, I think the dollar will cheapen from here," Rick Rieder, BlackRock's chief investment officer for fixed income, told the Reuters summit. He said, however, there would always be an "organic bid" for dollars as the world's premier reserve currency, but that should not prevent it weakening at least moderately while the euro and emerging market currencies strengthen, he said.

Jose Mourinho must hope his side are more cohesive and defensively sound against the Belgians following an abject display in freezing conditions in Austria.

The agreement shields unidentified alleged accomplices and nullifying it could impact the criminal case in New York against Ghislaine Maxwell, who stands accused of luring girls so Epstein could abuse them. Maxwell has pleaded not guilty.
