The Pound stagnated, following the news that food inflation had hit a 15 year high.
Last week was pretty jam-packed as far as announcements were concerned with the Fed and the BoE both raising interest rates by 25bps.

The Bank of England (BoE) has raised the UK interest rates by 0.25 basis points to 4.25% to combat double-digit inflation.
UK Core Inflation and Inflation Rate YoY (FEB) was forecast to drop by 0.1% (5.7%) and 0.2% (9.9%) respectively, but came in much higher at 6.2% and 10.4%, respectively. MoM inflation also rose by 0.5% to 1.1%. This will pose a big question for the BoE as a double-digit inflation may require more than the forecasted 25 basis points hike.

The latest issue on the cards is Credit Suisse who are having problems, the issue with this is that Credit Suisse is very much one of the “Too big to fail” banks, and if this bank fails we do end up in a very 2008-esque situation.
The main highlight of the past few days has been the failure of the tech startup-focused SVB and the crypto focussed Signature Bank – Sweden’s largest pension fund (also known as Alecta).
Workers across the UK are getting less money in their pockets at the end of every month as regular pay in real terms fell by 2.4% in November to January, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
