And the chances of the Bank of England raising rates next month are seen around 53%, from 75% on Thursday. Currency traders had been favouring the U.S. dollar and others where rate hike prospects appeared strong, driven by higher inflation and stronger economies. Positioning on yen, Swiss franc and euro meanwhile has been bearish, reflecting the view policy tightening is distant for those countries. The sharp yield drop on 2-year Treasury notes -- a bond segment particularly sensitive to interest rate changes -- pushed its yield premium over Germany 10 bps lower . That view resonated across southern European bond markets, the programme's biggest beneficiaries.

The CWA also formed the Alphabet Workers Union, a so-called minority union that does not have collective bargaining rights. For many tech workers, the promise of a generous payday is no longer enough. They also want sound working conditions and assurances that the products they are building will not harm society, tech employees and organizers say. "After considering the benefits and costs, our employees voted overwhelmingly against forming a union," Mapbox said in a statement. On their website, members of the Mapbox Workers Union wrote that they banded together "to build a lasting, accountable, inclusive Mapbox."

REUTERS/Brendan McDermidNEW YORK, Nov 22 (Reuters) - Biden's pick of Jerome Powell to continue as Federal Reserve Chair gives global investors stability and some predictability as the central bank prepares to taper its asset purchases and start hiking rates. Investors had grown nervous about Powell's reappointment, with some saying they'd expected it earlier in the calendar - as has been the case with prior chair announcements. Powell has done more than any recent Fed chair to cultivate relationships on Capitol Hill, meeting regularly with members of both parties. The Fed Chair nomination comes as Democrats try to push through a landmark social spending bill that is central to the administration's economic agenda.

Nov 22 (Reuters) - Pfizer Inc (PFE.N) said on Monday its COVID-19 vaccine provided strong long-term protection against the virus in a late-stage study conducted among adolescents aged 12 to 15 years. A two-dose series of the vaccine was 100% effective against COVID-19, measured seven days through over four months after the second dose, the company said.
