The leader of Britain's opposition Labor Party, Keir Starmer, will warn in an upcoming speech, citing World Bank data, that Poland's economy will overtake the UK's by 2030 and by 2040 without a leadership change.

[The probability of the Bank of England raising interest rates by 50 basis points in March is small]
Investors expect the Bank of England to raise interest rates by 27 basis points at its March meeting, compared with expectations for a 20 basis point hike at the previous meeting, meaning investors now see a 50 basis point hike in March as a possibility Sex is small. This shift may be due to the market's belief that the Fed will continue to raise policy rates.

Combined with an earlier slowdown in money supply and real money growth, today's data is not good for the euro.
[The Federal Reserve implements interest rate hike measures to curb the highest level of inflation]
The Federal Reserve has implemented a series of rate hikes to curb the highest level of inflation in about 41 years. Markets widely expect several more rate hikes before the Fed pauses to assess the impact of tightening policy on the economy.

[Risk aversion triggers yen strength]
The yen strengthened against other G10 and Asian currencies in early trade as risk aversion could help support the yen's safe-haven appeal.
