Last Week

  • Asian shares were down for a sixth straight session on Tuesday, as a renewed EU energy price spike worsened fears of recession. This pushed bond yields higher but tipped the euro to a 20 year low; the single currency was struggling at $0.9937 after falling below parity with the dollar on Monday.
  • UK Energy Regulator increases price cap by 80%, suggesting that a typical household gas and electricity bill will rise to £3,549 a year, starting in October, from £1,971 at present. Conservative leadership candidates, Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss, have been warned that the crisis could extend for several years; especially given restricted gas supplies to Europe.
  • Stocks fell sharply on Friday, after a hawkish speech from Fed’s Powell, where he said he will continue to raise rates in the fight against inflation, and that ‘restoring price stability will likely require maintaining a restrictive policy stance for some time’. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 1.22%, the S&P500 fell 1.5% and the Nasdaq Composite slid 1.84%.
