United States (U.S.): Philly Fed Index Pulls Back Much More Than Expected in September; Weekly Jobless Claims Unexpectedly Decrease to 201,000

A report by the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia showed a significant downturn in regional manufacturing activity in September. The Philly Fed said its diffusion index for current activity tumbled to a negative 13.5 in September from a positive 12.0 in August, with a negative reading indicating contraction. Economists had expected the index to slump to a negative 0.7. The diffusion index for future general activity jumped to 11.1 in September from 3.9% in August, suggesting more widespread expectations for overall growth over the next six months. 09/21/2023 - 08:41:00 (RTTNews)

United Kingdom (U.K.): Bank of England Surprises with No Change in Bank Rate

The Bank of England kept its benchmark rate unchanged unexpectedly, thus pausing the rate hike cycle that raised interest rates in 14 consecutive sessions. The Monetary Policy Committee of the BoE, headed by Andrew Bailey, voted 5-4 to maintain the bank rate at 5.25%. Markets widely expected a quarter-point increase. Five committee members judged that retaining the rate at 5.25% was warranted at this meeting as there were signs that the labor market was loosening. Four members voted to lift the bank rate by 25 basis points, citing evidence of more persistent inflationary pressures.

The MPC also voted unanimously to reduce the stock of U.K. government bond purchases held for monetary policy purposes, and financed by the issuance of central bank reserves, by GBP 100 billion over the next twelve months, to a total of GBP 658 billion. Bank staff forecast the economy to grow only slightly in the third quarter of 2023, and underlying growth in the second half of the year is also projected to be weaker than expected. CPI inflation is forecast to fall significantly further in the near term. However, services price inflation is expected to remain elevated in the near term, with some potential month-to-month volatility. 09/21/2023 - 07:37:00 (RTTNews)
