* INFLATION: Costs are rising at the fastest rate in over 20 years for firms in Britain's services sector, according to a business survey released which shows why the Bank of England may soon raise interest rates.

* GOLD: Gold prices were flat, as cautious investors assessed the extent to which the Omicron coronavirus variant could hurt the global economy.
