omicron XBB.1.5 is immune evasive, binds better to cells

Gilnature | Istock | Getty Images The Covid omicron XBB.1.5 variant is rapidly becoming dominant in the U.S. because it is highly immune evasive and appears more effective at binding to cells than related subvariants, scientists say.

The subvariant more than doubled as a share of cases every week through Dec. 24. In the past week, it nearly doubled from 21.7% prevalence. Scientists and public health...

The Fed won’t be what drives markets in 2023, wealth manager says

The Federal Reserve played a major role in moving markets in 2022, driving a campaign of monetary tightening as it tried to combat inflation that hit multi-decade highs. Many who had money in stocks and even bonds suffered, as liquidity was sucked out of the market with every rate hike employed by the Fed — seven of them in the past year alone. In mid-December, the central bank raised its benchmark interest rate to the highest level in 15 years, taking it to a targeted range between 4.25% and 4.5%. Before that, the U.S. saw four consecutive three-quarter point hikes...

Putin attempts to undermine oil price cap as global energy markets fracture

Russia’s announcement of an oil export ban on countries that abide by a G-7 price cap is the latest sign that we’ve entered a new era for global energy markets, according to analysts. But they also note it’s unlikely to have a short-term impact on oil prices, with markets taking their cues from data and concrete actions rather than words. The price cap was introduced on Dec. 5 and requires traders using Western services such as maritime routes, insurance and financing to pay no more than $60 per barrel for seaborne Russian oil. Urals crude is currently trading around $50...
