With the markets expecting no changes in rates and Quantitive easing; they were however looking for some forward guidance as to when an interest rate hike may come. The Fed are currently monitoring employment figures and inflation. Jerome Powell, Fed Chair did mention he need not see a “knockout, great, super strong employment report”. A reasonable reading would be satisfactory to consider moving rates. As it stands, a hike is likely to come in the second half of 2022.

The UK is closer to its first interest rate rise since the pandemic after two of nine member voted to tighten policy to balance inflation, whilst others agreed that uncertainty revolving around Covid need be the focus. An interest rate hike for the UK is currently priced in for the early part of 2022 – as early as February. With surging energy costs, labour shortages and chaos in the supply chain; The UKs recovery from the pandemic will certainly be of key importance before an interest rate rise comes
