14:34 EDTCLFIron ore producers slide after Australia cuts price target on the commodity
Shares of iron ore producers are falling after Reuters reported that Australia reduced its 2015 price forecast for iron ore to $54.40 a tonne from $60.40 a tonne. According to Reuters, Australia's current projection on iron ore prices is based on its view that China, the commodity's main market, will produce less steel in 2015 and 2016 as as the seaborne supply of iron ore increases. PRICE ACTION: Cliffs Natural Resources (CLF) is down over 10%, BHP Billiton (BHP) is lower by 2.3%, and Vale (VALE) is down 4% in afternoon trading. Steel stocks, including United States Steel (X), AK Steel Holding (AKS), and Nuco (NUE) are also sliding in afternoon trading.

05:59 EDTITGartner: Worldwide IT spending on pace to decline 5.5% in 2015
Worldwide IT spending is on pace to total $3.5T in 2015, a 5.5% decline from 2014, according to the latest forecast by Gartner, Inc. Analysts attribute the decline to the rising U.S. dollar. In constant-currency terms, the market is projected to grow 2.5%. In Gartner's previous forecast in April, it had forecast IT spending to decline 1.3% in U.S. dollars and grow 3.1% in constant currency. "We want to stress that this is not a market crash. Such are the illusions that large swings in the value of the U.S. dollar versus other currencies can create," said John-David Lovelock, research vice president at Gartner. "However, there are secondary effects to the rising U.S. dollar. Vendors do have to raise prices to protect costs and margins of their products, and enterprises and consumers will have to make new purchase decisions in light of the new prices." Communications services will continue to be the largest IT spending segment in 2015 with spending at nearly $1.5T. However, this segment is also experiencing the strongest decline among the five IT sectors. In the device market, mobile phones continue to be the leading segment, with growth in Apple phones, especially in China, keeping overall phone spending consistent. However, overall smartphone unit growth will start to flatten. The PC and tablet market continues to weaken. The expected 10 percent increase in average PC pricing in currency-impacted countries is going ahead, delaying purchases even more than expected. Excessive PC inventory levels, especially in Western Europe, need to be cleared, which will delay Windows 10 inventory in the second half of the year. Within the data center systems segment, storage and network markets are both expected to see weaker growth in U.S. dollar terms as a result of the appreciation of the U.S. dollar. Reference Link
