After signs of rising US inflation raised bets of a faster withdrawal of policy support by the Federal Reserve, Canada’s main stock index continued its stumble on Tuesday. Meanwhile, the Bank of Canada’s new mandate keeps a 2% annual inflation rate at its heart. The central bank will also consider the health of the job market as part of its inflation-targeting regime. Now policymakers at the US Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank, the Bank of Japan, and the Bank of England weigh the pace of interest rate rises needed to curb higher inflation.
