Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank (FRB) President Rafael Bostic (he does not have a vote on the Federal Open Market Committee this year) believes the Fed may have to raise its benchmark interest rate higher than previously expected as strong data on the US labor market showed that economic activity in the US is slowing down slightly. Bostic said they would have to do a bit more work, and the Fed would have to raise rates higher than forecasts indicate.

The US trade deficit in December 2022 increased by 10.5% to $67.4 billion, the country's Department of Commerce said. According to the revised data, in November, the negative trade balance amounted to $61 billion, and not $61.5 billion, as previously reported. The rate was the lowest since September 2020. Experts, on average, expected growth to $68.5 billion from the previously announced November level.
