Jonny Hart speaks to APAC Senior Market Analyst Jeffrey Halley about news impacting the market and the week ahead.
Steeping in for a vacationing Craig Erlam, we have a blockbuster episode today. We start with the upcoming FOMC and Bank of England rate announcements and their implications for the market. Both are in different situations thanks to the Ukraine War but their decisions should have a very binary outcome. After that, it’s oil and the market reaction to the EU’s proposed ban on Russian oil imports. We also discuss what the outlook for oil is. We then delve into the Ukraine/Russia commodity complex, and its downstream impact on the world including the global food chain. Finally, we take a high-level view of the world as central banks struggle to control inflation while war rages in Eastern Europe.
