United Kingdom (U.K.): Pay Awards Fall as Economy Slips into Recession

British Pound traded at 1.2625 against USD at 9:00 am PST.

U.K. employers lowered the pay awards in settlements at the start of the year as the economy entered a recession. The news would offer some relief to the Bank of England policymakers as inflationary pressures will likely to ease in the months ahead, allowing them to consider an interest rate cut. The median basic pay award for the three months to the end of January fell to 5.1% from 6.0% in the October to December period, results of a survey by the human resources firm XpertHR showed. With headline CPI inflation falling from 10.1%  in January 2023 to 4% in January 2024, pay awards had been expected to follow suit. Official data released last week showed that the annual growth in average earnings, excluding bonuses, slowed less than expected to 6.2% in the fourth quarter from 6.7% in the prior period. 02/21/2024 - 11:13:00 (RTTNews)

 

European Union (E.U.): Eurozone Consumer Confidence Improves More Than Expected

Euro traded at 1.0818 against USD at 9:00 am PST.

Euro area consumer confidence improved more than expected in February after deteriorating the previous month. Still, the reading remained negative, suggesting lessening pessimism, preliminary data from the European Commission showed. The flash consumer confidence index climbed to 15.5 from -16.1 in January. Economists had forecast a score of -16. In December, the reading was -15.1. The corresponding index for the E.U. rose to -15.8 from -16.2 in January. Consumer confidence readings for both regions remain well below their long-term average. The survey period was from February 1 to 21. The final reading for consumer confidence is set to be released along with the monthly economic sentiment survey results on February 28. 02/21/2024 - 10:43:00 (RTTNews)

The six-month annualized growth rate in the Westpac-Melbourne Institute Leading Index, which indicates the likely pace of economic activity relative to trend over the next three to nine months, dropped to -0.25 percent in January from -0.01 percent in the previous month. 02/21/2024 - 02:55:00 (RTTNews)
