  • In Japan, annual wage negotiations between trade unions and companies have begun. Initial reports from the country indicate record wage increases, which may encourage the Bank of Japan to make a historic policy change.

  • Pierre Wunsch, a member of the Governing Council, said that the European Central Bank will soon have to risk cutting interest rates, even though wage inflation and the rise in service prices are uncomfortably high.
  • President Vladimir Putin, speaking days before the 15-17 March elections, warned the West on Wednesday that Russia was technically ready for nuclear war and that the US sending troops to Ukraine would be considered a significant escalation of the war.
  • Dynamic growth in the cryptocurrency market continues. Bitcoin gains 1.15% in the first part of the day to a level of 72,300 USD, and short corrections are quickly used by investors to buy BTC at a lower price.
  • Such a situation was observed yesterday when Bitcoin briefly fell from the levels of 73,000 USD to around 68,000 USD.
