Emerging market stocks were set on Friday for their worst week in five months, weighed down by a hawkish U.S. central bank and geopolitical worries, even as fears of an imminent escalation in tensions over Ukraine seemed to have eased. MSCI's index of emerging market stocks steadied after a steep sell-off a day earlier, when comments from Fed Chairman Powell saw markets raise bets for an aggressive monetary policy tightening cycle this year. While most bourses firmed, China markets saw a late-session rout ahead of a week-long Lunar New year holiday, while the yuan rose 0.2% after its worst session since March 2020 when pandemic panic gripped the market.

Sterling on Friday edged up against the euro, just off its 23-month high, as investors expect the Bank of England to raise rates next week and follow a much faster path of monetary tightening than the European Central Bank in 2022. Analysts argued that the hawkish BoE stance would boost the pound, despite the tightening plans from the U.S. Federal Reserve, providing some defence also against the dollar. “Key rates that rise by more than 25bp (at next week’s policy meeting) would help sterling if BoE governor Andrew Bailey were able to convince the market that the BoE has a plan,” Commerzbank analysts said, describing last year’s BoE announcements as “fickle.”

Albert Adomah has played 458 times in the Championship, more than any other outfield player since the division rebranded under that name, but only twice in the Premier League. In fact, a record-breaking second tier career that has taken in six clubs across a dozen seasons has seen the QPR man earn just as many promotions to the top flight of English football as appearances in it. The games came nine days apart, in August 2016, months after Adomah had helped fire Boro back into the Premier League, but by the time the summer’s transfer window had closed he found himself back in the Championship, sold to Aston Villa in a move he puts down to “circumstances” and “a few personal reasons”.
