Exclusive: Iranian oil output stagnates for third month amid OPEC bargaining | Reuters

Exclusive: Iranian oil output stagnates for third month amid OPEC bargaining | Reuters:

"Iran's steep oil output growth has stalled in the past three months, new data showed, suggesting Tehran might be struggling to fulfill its plans to raise production to new highs while demanding to be excluded from any OPEC deals on supply curbs.

Iran's oil output soared to 3.64 million barrels per day in June from an average of 2.84 million bpd in 2015 following the easing of Western sanctions on Tehran in January, adding to a global crude glut which has slashed oil prices.

But since June, output has stagnated and reached just 3.63 million bpd in August, according to fresh OPEC data based on secondary sources, which include consultants and industry media, and seen by Reuters. Iran also told OPEC it produced 3.63 million bpd in August, according to an OPEC source.

India’s stock market is waving goodbye to speculators  - FT.com:

The island nation's outsized role in India's economy stems from a 1983 bilateral tax treaty, which exempts Mauritius-based companies from capital gains tax on Indian investments.
Foreign investors around the world — from private equity groups to multinational corporations such as GlaxoSmithKline — have enthusiastically embraced the tax loophole, pumping tens of billions of dollars into India through subsidiaries in Mauritius."
