Today, the UK labor market reported a strong jobs report with even lower unemployment at 4.2%. This will give the Bank of England more room to hike rates when they decide on Thursday. The U.S. PPI also came in hot at 0.8% last month, above the expected 0.5%, and rose to 9.6% over the last year in November from 8.8% the prior month marking one of the highest levels in decades.
The global trend has been to tighten since more than a billion people live with double digit inflation which is destroying savings accounts and the middle and lower classes. A number of countries have started to tighten including South Korea and New Zealand.
