good morning. Welcome to our rolling coverage of the global economy, financial markets, eurozone and business.

Unemployment in the UK has fallen again as employers continue to add workers to their salaries… but wages are now chasing inflation again.

According to the National Statistical Office, the unemployment rate fell to 4.1% in the September-November quarter. This is down from 4.2% a month ago.

Salaries continue to increase as well. ONS estimates that employers added 184,000 additional employees in December, bringing salaries to 409,000, or 1.4% above pre-pandemic levels.

All regions are now above pre-coronavirus levels, with Scotland seeing the biggest increase this month.

Between October and December, 1,247,000 vacancies were created, vacancies again hitting all-time highs.

That’s a 462,000 increase from pre-pandemic, marking a record number of vacancies across most industries, with an all-time high of 4.1 vacancies per 100 employees. But vacancy growth has slowed, ONS warns.

The layoff rate fell to an all-time low after the novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19) crisis, suggesting that the termination of unpaid leave did not have a significant impact on the job market.

However, the economic suspension rate increased by 0.2 percentage points to 21.3%, indicating that more people are leaving the labor market due to schooling, early retirement, or illness.

#BoJ put monetary policy on hold, as widely expected. This is understandable given that inflation is still close to zero. However, it has raised its growth forecast for fiscal 2022 (to 3.8%) and inflation forecast (to 1.1%).
