Unemployment in Great Britain continued to fall to 3.5% in the three months through August, according to new figures released today by the U.K. Office of National Statistics ONS. The unemployment rate is 0.3% lower than a quarter earlier, marking the lowest level since 1974.

The price of oil for a barrel of West Texas Intermediate fell more than 1.6% yesterday to a price of $91.13. The drop is due to the general uncertainty in the market about, among other things, how the oil supply from Russia will develop with the European sanctions and a possible upcoming price cap in the European Union. In addition, it was revealed last weekend that China’s service sector has continued to shrink due to tighter corona measures which has added to concerns about the Chinese economy.
