  • Eurozone inflation rose for the first time in six months in December to a rate of 2.9 per cent. The rate was higher than the 2.4 per cent figure released last month but was still slightly lower than the 3 per cent figure forecasted by economists. The rise in inflation has led investors to reconsider bets that the ECB will start cutting rates as early as March.
  • The US added 216,000 jobs in December which was much higher than forecasts and the 173,000 jobs seen in November. This data was another sign of a strong economic signals and further led investors to revise early cut expectation bets that were made at the end of last year.

Average house prices rose 1.1 per cent in December as high mortgage rates, which has hurt the housing over the recent year, have continued to decline while mortgage approval rates have risen.
