In the UK unemployment increased by 48,000 between October and December to 2.67million which was in line with expectations. The number of people claiming jobseeker’s allowance also rose by 6,900 to 1.6 million, which is the highest it has been since January 2010. The poor unemployment data alongside evidence that the economy contracted in the fourth quarter is fuelling claims that the government has tried to cut the deficit too quickly. The Bank of England also hinted at the potential for more Quantitative Easing due to the quarterly inflation report presenting new, higher inflation forecasts. The Governor of the Bank of England stated that the UK economy faced “substantial headwinds” that are “hampering our recovery and rebalancing,” Economic data is fairly light in the UK today as the markets look for any developments surrounding Greece Call in now for the latest update and the latest news.
