Financial markets have pared back their expectations of a Bank of England rate rise on Dec. 16 since information emerged about the new variant last week, and now see a two thirds chance of a rate rise, down from three quarters before. The probability of a BoE move was barely 50% on Tuesday before U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell cast doubt on the transitory nature of inflation pressures and suggested the Fed might need to slow its bond purchases faster than planned.

Variations of the word “grooming” appeared nine times in her federal indictment, according to the New York Times.On Thursday, expert witness Dr Lisa Rocchio told jurors that “childhood sexual abuse is a process” that begins with the selection of the victim and escalates through trust-building and desensitization.Prosecutors have accused Maxwell of initiating the grooming process by introducing young girls to Epstein, posing as a mentor figure, and allegedly giving the girls explicit sexual advice.Videos taken outside the Southern District of New York Courthouse show Teresa Helm, an alleged victim of Maxwell and Epstein, and lawyers arriving to the trial on Thursday morning.
