Stock futures seesawed this morning following a new development from the UK. The Bank of England is intervening in the market chaos unleashed by the new UK government’s tax-cut-heavy economic plan. The central bank said Wednesday that it would hold off on its plans to start selling bonds, also known as gilts in the UK, and start a temporary program of buying longer-term debt. “Were dysfunction in this market to continue or worsen, there would be a material risk to UK financial stability,” the Bank of England said. “This would lead to an unwarranted tightening of financing conditions and a reduction of the flow of credit to the real economy.” The pound, which had fallen drastically against the dollar, popped briefly on the news. Yields on gilts are on track to post their biggest monthly gain in 65 years. The tax-cut plan from new Prime Minister Liz Truss’s government puzzled investors, officials and experts alike, even drawing backlash from the International Monetary Fund.
Ian became a Category 4 hurricane as it geared up to smash into the Tampa region on Florida’s west coast. The storm’s center was about 75 miles west-southwest of Naples, Florida, as of 5 a.m. ET Wednesday, according to the National Hurricane Center. Ian left Cuba without power before heading toward Florida. The storm’s approach prompted several authorities and companies to batten down the hatches. Walt Disney World and Universal Studios Orlando said they would be closing their parks for at least a couple days, while Amazon said it would close some of its warehouses in the region. The Tampa and Orlando airports also suspended operations.
