U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Yellen smiles at the inaugural Michel Camdessus Central Banking Lecture in WashingtonBy Robin Emmott BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Investors shift focus this coming week from trouble spots such as Portugal's biggest listed bank to a marathon testimony by the U.S. Fed chair that could help chart a global path towards post-crisis "normalization". Concerns about losses associated with the founding family of Banco Espirito Santo had threatened to rattle euro zone markets, but by Friday traders had decided that BES was unlikely to disrupt Portugal's financial system or revive broader worries about the bloc's weaker economies. In any case, Janet Yellen's two-day appearance in the U.S. Congress from Tuesday will dominate global markets, which want above all to know how long the Federal Reserve will leave interest rates low after an unprecedented period of cheap money since the financial crisis. While October is likely to mark the end of the central bank's money printing, investors are looking for hints of an interest rate hike early next year, which would signal a return to normality after the Great Recession and its aftermath.

This photo taken June 25, 2014, shows Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., questions Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew as he testifies at a Capitol Hill hearing examining the Financial Stability Oversight Council's annual report to Congress in Washington. Warren is quickly becoming a top Democrat fund-raising and campaigning powerhouse. Since March, she has stumped for candidates in Ohio, Minnesota, Oregon, Washington and Kentucky and has trips planned in July for West Virginia and Michigan. It’s a hefty schedule for a freshman senator who not long ago was teaching law at Harvard. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak)CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Sen. Elizabeth Warren is quickly becoming a top Democratic fundraising and campaigning powerhouse, hitting the road on behalf of candidates in key races the party will need to win to retain control of the U.S. Senate in November.

Israelis stand on a hill at the Israeli town of Sderot, overlooking the Gaza Strip, as they watch smoke rising following an Israeli strike on Gaza, Saturday, July 12, 2014. Ignoring international appeals for a cease-fire, Israel on Saturday widened its range of Gaza bombing targets to civilian institutions with suspected Hamas ties and announced it would hit northern Gaza "with great force" to prevent rocket attacks from there on Israel. More than 150 Palestinians have been killed in five days of bombardment. (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis)JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel briefly deployed ground troops inside the Gaza Strip for the first time early Sunday as its military warned northern Gaza residents to evacuate their homes, part of a widening campaign against militant rocket fire that's killed more than 160 Palestinians.
