ActivTrades | Unemployment Drops and Interest Rates Likely to Rise

Activ TradesInvestors realise that interest rates play a large part in the return on monies across the investment board.  As interest rates rise, returns grow larger, and the financial sector becomes more and more active with stock trading, which in turn strengthens currencies and broadens the growth of economies. The Bank of England governor, Mark Carney, has said that the interest rates are not likely to rise before the unemployment rate reaches 7%; however the rate has now dropped to 7.7% and that is a decrease from the 7.8% in previous reports, so the outlook is very good that interest rates will soon trend upward. Investing advisors see this as a wonderful event and solicit those potential market players to take the initiative now in order to reap the benefits of the coming growth.

Official figures in the UK show that people claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance has fallen to its lowest level since 2009, so this also is a sign of recovery in the job market and the broader economy. Even if many more are working part-time rather than full-time, it is still lessening the burden on the assistance programs needed and monies for support of such claims. Part-time employment is showing positive gains for both men and women and the strength of the pound against the euro and dollar is reflecting the upward trends of employment. Private sector jobs are increasing according to the Prime Minister and the rate of pay has also increased compared to a year ago, even though there has been a loss shown in public sector employment. The chief economist at the British Chambers of Commerce touts that this is a showing of the resilience and flexibility of the labour market and that those qualities are what is driving the recovery of the country. All indicators show economic and investment growth, which for ActivTrades clientele, is a blessing.
