Artemis Investment Limited – US Rate Update, Asia Markets Slump, Concerns over Russia and Ukraine
The Federal Reserve on Wednesday held interest rates at near zero, but reiterated its commitment to withdrawing its pandemic-era easy money policies in the face of rapid price increases.
In its first policy-setting meeting of 2022, the Fed reiterated that U.S. economic activity continues to strengthen despite the emergence of the Omicron variant of COVID-19.
Asian shares fell to their lowest in more than 14 months, short-term U.S. yields rose to 23-month highs and the dollar strengthened on Thursday after the Federal Reserve's chairman signaled plans to steadily tighten policy.
At the same time, rising investor concerns over political tensions between Russia and Ukraine exacerbated worries over tight energy market supply, keeping oil prices elevated at multi-year highs.
