TORONTO — Canada's main stock index gave up early gains but still posted a small increase as crude oil prices hit a more than seven-year high and the central bank kept its key interest rate in check. The Bank of Canada kept its key interest rate at 0.25 per cent, but warned higher interest rates are coming to help trim inflation from its hottest pace in three decades. Despite robust growth in the U.S. economy, an uneven global recovery, supply constraints, inflationary pressures, geopolitical te
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Federal Reserve signaled Wednesday that it will begin a series of interest-rate hikes in March, reversing pandemic-era policies that have fueled hiring and growth — and stock market gains — but also stubbornly high inflation. Chair Jerome Powell said at a news conference that inflation has gotten “slightly worse” since the Fed last met in December. He said raising the Fed’s benchmark rate, which has been pegged at zero since March 2020, will help prevent high prices from be

GENEVA (AP) — The finance model for the Winter Olympics calls for the host country to spend several billion dollars, the IOC to earn a couple billion, and sports bodies to share around hundreds of millions.

HALIFAX — A Nova Scotia Power proposal to charge fees for customers who sell power back to the grid has drawn heated criticism from solar installers who say it will damage the emerging industry. The utility applied Thursday before the Utility and Review Board for a monthly fee of about $8 per kilowatt of electricity, which in a typical 10-kilowatt photovoltaic solar installation would amount to about $960 annually. David Brushett, the chairman of Solar Nova Scotia, says this would be a massive r
But, as has been the case most of the week, gains were pared as investors processed how strong economic growth might inform the Fed's thinking. Chairman Jerome Powell indicated at a Wednesday news conference that inflation remained higher than the central bank would like and supply chain issues could persist. However, the prospect of faster or larger U.S. interest rate hikes helped push the dollar to its highest levels since July 2020.

A bipartisan group of U.S. lawmakers has asked the Treasury Department for "clarity to the digital asset ecosystem" after new related reporting requirements were included in last year's $1 trillion infrastructure law, Punchbowl News said on Thursday. In a letter dated Wednesday, the group told Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen that part of the bill was "ambiguous" because Treasury could interpret who within the digital asset ecosystem qualifies as a "broker" beyond what Congress intended, and urged against "a potentially expansive reading of the 'broker' definition."
The Los Angeles City Council on Wednesday approved a measure to ban new oil and gas wells and phase out existing ones. The council directed the city attorney to draft an ordinance to prohibit oil and gas drilling in Los Angeles, change zoning laws to make drilling illegal and study how to legally phase out existing wells. The council also created a jobs program to transition oil and gas workers to other industries. The decision comes after a decade of complaints from residents about health probl
STOCKHOLM (Reuters) -Electrolux said on Friday global supply chain issues would persist after posting a drop in quarterly profit, while expecting demand in 2022 above pre-pandemic levels.

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) -Tesla Inc on Wednesday forecast vehicle deliveries would comfortably grow by more than 50% year-over-year in 2022 despite persistent supply chain issues that it expects to be alleviated only next year.

But the cautious note about supply chain woes showed that even Tesla cannot avoid the shortages that were pitfalls for many larger automakers last year.
NEW YORK (Reuters) -Visa Inc beat Wall Street's quarterly estimates on Thursday as more international travel and e-commerce drove an increase spending volumes. While travel spending has stalled since late December due to the Omicron variant of the coronavirus, Visa executives said they believe the recovery will resume and net revenue will grow in the second fiscal quarter this year. "The upside is going to come from the continued recovery of travel and the affluent customer getting back in the mix of spending at the levels they were pre-pandemic,” Visa Chairman and Chief Executive Alfred Kelly said on a call with analysts.
