Inflation in US is not slowing down

The new inflation numbers will not make anyone happy. The YoY CPI numbers are over 7.5%, while the expected value was around 7.3% and the previous were at 7.0%. The MoM inflation has increased by 0.6%, with the previous increase being 0.5% and the forecast being at a 0.4%. None of these numbers are positive, which can lead to markets selloff.

EU trying to lure IPO investments

The EU Listing Act, which is supposed to be put forward by the end of this year, should help incentivize mainly deep technology companies to open up and raise funds in Europe.
