 And Spain's parliament has agreed to pass a constitutional limit on public-sector borrowing. It's the first eurozone country to impose such a restriction1. Last week, France and Germany called on all eurozone governments to introduce limits to help contain the debt crisis. The proposed amendment2 will require the government to maintain a balanced budget and cap the total amount of debts it can run up. The Spanish parliament is also debating further austerity measures to cut the country's deficit3

 
World stock markets have risen on speculation4 that the US Federal Reserve is planning further stimulatory5 measures. Wall Street was up around three per cent while European markets closed a more modest half a per cent higher. 
 
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke is widely expected to discuss further stimulus6 actions in a speech on Friday. Weak housing and factory data in the US have triggered this latest speculation. 
 
Now let's take a look at those markets now. The Dow closed up 322 points. The NASDAQ was also up 160 points. And the S&P500 was up 33 points. In London, the FTSE closed up 34. 
 
And checking commodity prices, West Texas Crude is trading at 85 US dollars and 39 cents a barrel. Tapis crude is trading at 117 US dollars and 30 cents a barrel.
