Today's  rate decision is a surprise to the market.

The BoE give hints of an increase, 0.15%. in advance than they do the opposite!!!!!

WHY DO CENTRAL BANKERS GENERALISE, THROW IN HINTS, SAY IT WILL BE XXX OR COMMUNICATE IN MYSTICAL WAYS? They micro manage statistical information as if it was gospel truth. Yet, it IS BASED ON THEORIES. Besides any modelling has certain assumptions built in too.

This conclusion makes experts take them for their word, or end up reading between the lines.

It demonstrates possibly:

1.   Make all believe they are invincible and know best (yet the Bond market is far more able to decide from known facts).

2.   They have many uncertainties but not show it publically.

3.    The perceived economic theory modelling does NOT give confidence to be CLEAR, PRECISE OR DECISIVE.

The Arts (as sciences, include Economics, Sociology, Law, Politics etc...) are million miles from the the workability of the Exact Sciences (like Physics, Engineering, AI, Biotechnology, Electronics, etc...).

How many are happy with the way Central Banks operate?

Hi @skyreach

Bank of England surprises market and keeps rates unchanged. Policymakers want to wait to see how the labour market reacts following the end of its furlough scheme.

The Bank of England (BoE) surprised analysts on Thursday by keeping interest rates unchanged, saying it needs more time to gauge how the end of a programme that paid furloughed workers during the coronavirus pandemic will impact the nation’s jobs market.

Thursday’s decision to keep the bank’s main interest rate at its all-time low of 0.1 percent surprised analysts and investors given surging energy and food prices that have contributed to an overall spike in inflation.

The vote by the BoE’s Monetary Policy Committee was 7-2 in favour of keeping the benchmark rate as is. The two policymakers who voted for a 15 basis-point rate hike said it was needed to offset domestic and global cost pressures, according to the meeting’s minutes.

The seven BoE policymakers who voted against a hike said there was “value” in waiting to see where the jobs market lands after the government ended a salary programme “before deciding when a tightening in monetary policy might be warranted”.

Holding back on interest rate hikes places the BoE in line with some other major monetary policymakers around the world. The European Central Bank and United States Federal Reserve recently said they would also leave interest rates unchanged. The Fed did however say on Wednesday that it would start scaling back its bond-buying programme that has helped support the economy during the pandemic.

The BoE’s new forecasts pictured weaker British economic growth with the forecast for 2022 cut to 5 percent from a previous 6 percent. It also predicted that inflation would jump to 5 percent in April 2022, driven by high energy prices.

Hi @skyreach

Check out the blog entry about Central Banks below, explains and covers the role of central banks, what it is, the major central banks, the responsibilities, interest rates and the impact on the forex markets.

Thank you for the key data on Central Banks.

Yes, they are private entities. The first of them was the FED, promoted and advised government officials or politicians by private bankers and business men from 1911 meeting until the legal setup of the FED in 1913. By-the-way the 1933 law passed gave full authority to the FED to act on behalf of the Government to handle its financing , rates and handling of inflation.

As to whether the Central Banks REALLY bring and maintain stability is open to question. Historically these Bankers have repeatedly said "This time it is different", that there is no bubble (hyperinflated assets being created). One example is Ben Bernanke famously advised Gorden Brown totally incorrectly along this idea.

Ben Bernanke was a very clever man who totally understood the destructive erosion of the value of money (purchasing value) when he was chief at the Economic Council AND hence fully promoted gold (as a standard and store of value.). But he was hired by the FED and from that point had to change his tune to join in on money printing without it being backed by gains in productivity or some gains in the store of value measure.

Once the gold standard was removed (by advice given by bankers) in the USA it immediately ended the Bretton Wood Agreement (became a failure -- and that was originated to handle the 1929-32 crash & Depression). It is ok for the USA to apparently print money like mad because it is the key world currency on which trade is done and all countries are trapped in that modeled system.

Nobody stopped the excess printing of money (paper money printed in the past but now done digitally at a press of a button for the computer programs to whiz out). Helicopter money that has been so hugely promoted  glibly is just doing the same OLD PRACTICES THAT DID NOT SOLVE THE PRIMARY PROBLEM.

ALL CENTRAL BANKS FOLLOWED THE FED's MODEL. That is why we get world depression -- it is a domino effect all based on the SAME FAULTY MODEL.

As I said in the previous note, Rates and Inflation are not the key determinants of an economy. Even Harry Dent as proven WHAT ECONOMIC MODEL WORKS AND WHY. Inflation has several meanings and effects -- some good and some bad. Even the Austrian School of Economics is a better model in some ways than the Conventional being used by most currently. However most economic theories of the past had issues. But the key fact remains that none of them could predict short term or long term. Most got it wrong. Rarely some got it right and then made a big noise about.

It seems the mentality is that Humans like to feel that they are right and the other fellow is wrong even when they are wrong. No one CHANGE THEIR THEORY and those who got it very badly wrong do not lose their jobs, nor the way they operated, the mechanisms they used get dumped (because that it not work).

Harry Dent seems to be an Economist who has produced the best (if not fully) a model that works.

  As regards current Inflation, well that is a big issue as some think (and some press reports ) that we are heading for hyperinflation ... others think it is temporary ... whilst others consider that we are headed for Deflation ahead. Deflation appears when TOO MUCH (extremely EXCESS) MONEY IS IN THE SYSTEM CREATED BY QE.

Repurchasing that back into the system as it is merely is creative accounting and somebody (usually the taxpayer, who did not create the problem) ends up paying for the aftereffects. The mechanism is , PRINT loads of money, Take the private industry / bankers toxic debts and give freely to them printed money. They will use the money to be invested in companies needing money, and into goods and services. AND hey presto, ALL WILL BE WELL!!!!!! THE REALITY HAS BEEN THE OPPOSITE!!!!!!!!

Moral of this story is: OLD FAILED SOLUTIONS USED AGAIN AND AGAIN DO NOT SOLVE THE PRIMARY PROBLEM OF BOOMS AND BURSTS. And THAT NATURAL FORCES (market forces) WERE NOT ALLOWED TO REGULATE THEMSELVES , i.e private industry should not be subsidised or propped up. If people lose their jobs then the government should subsidise them and retrain them for new jobs. Failing companies and old unchanging industries are the fault of top executives running them -- poor performers in truth. Hell, most individuals would be demoted or sacked for bad performance that worsened their company, not rewarded.

EXAMPLE CASE

In the last recession FEAR OF GOD was put to government and the nation as if the world would totally collapse if the bankrupt banks failed. Governments panic and fear mass unemployment and they would be voted out of office so take up any solution that temporarily appears to work. Certainly it is a major issue but failed collapsed banks can be made to go , just as any other bad company. Their assets can be bought back cheaply instead of taking over toxic debts of others who ruined the system. Other banks  holding Bonds lose out (& private individuals) but that IS the nature of this game.

    • Gold on the rise, as Brent crude and natural gas show signs of impending weakness Ongoing trends look likely to continue, with gold grinding higher as Brent crude and natural gas show signs of potential impending weakness. Source: Bloomberg      Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Thursday 09 February 2023  Gold grinds higher after collapse into trendline support Gold ended last week with a bang as price collapsed into a fresh four-week low. However, despite growing calls for a reversal across a number of asset classes, this week has seen equity markets and the dollar turn back in the direction of their prevailing trend. Given the close correlation between the dollar and gold, this signals the potential for another move higher for precious metals if money does not flow into the dollar. For gold, the current grind higher looks likely to continue, with a break back below the recent low of $1861 required to create a fresh bearish outlook. Source: ProRealTime Brent crude rebound takes price back up towards descending trendline Brent crude has spent much of the week regaining lost ground following a bearish turn that saw $10 sliced off the price in the space of a fortnight. The wider trend does remain bearish, with the descending trendline and Fibonacci resistance levels bringing the potential for another bearish turn before long. With price currently at the 61.8% retracement ($85.20), there is a good chance we see the bears come into play before long. Watch for a move through 80 on the stochastic to signal a bearish turn from a momentum perspective. To the upside, we would need to see a push up through the $89.01 resistance level to bring confidence of a more protracted bullish rebound. Source: ProRealTime Natural gas turns lower from Fibonacci resistance Natural gas has turned lower once again after a rebound in the early part of the week. This is a market that has been a consistent performer for the bears, with the relatively balmy European winter ensuring that storage levels remain well topped up throughout the drawdown period of the year. While we did see a push into the 76.4% Fibonacci level on Tuesday, price has been reversing lower in line with the wider bearish trend. With a very consistent bearish trend still in play, we would need to see a push up through the $2.789 swing-high to bring about a more positive outlook. Until then, further downside looks likely.

    • ASX 200 afternoon report: 9th of February 2023 Find out all the latest information on the ASX 200 market. Updated as of 9th February, 3.00 pm AEDT.   Source: Bloomberg   Indices ASX Coal Dividend S&P/ASX 200 Interest rate  Tony Sycamore | Market Analyst, Australia | Publication date: Thursday 09 February 2023  The ASX 200 trades 43 points (-0.57%) lower at 7487 at 3.00 pm Sydney time. The ASX 200 has slumped today, taking its lead from a fall on Wall Street, as Fed Speakers hit the wires to beat the hawkish drums and remind markets that higher rates will be required for longer to bring down inflation. IT sector The tech sector experienced losses today, led by Google. Google fell 7.44% after its new AI intelligence chatbot Bard underwhelmed Sezzle fell 8.53% ZIP fell 5.91% Megaport fell 5.65% as it elected not to pay a dividend Novonix fell 4.72% to $1.72. AGL fell 11% after reporting a loss of $ 1.1 billion for the first half of the year. It also slashed guidance and its interim dividend to 8c per share. Elsewhere, Real Estate heavyweight Mirvac slumped 5% to $2.28 as wet weather, interest rate hikes, and labour shortages limited its first-half earnings. Financial sector The pressure of this week’s RBA rate hike and intensification in the fight for new deposits has hada negative effect on all banks apart from ANZ. ANZ has added 0.23% to $23.85 after its upbeat trading update NAB fell 0.8% to $31.80 Westpac fell 0.36% to $23.82 CBA fell 0.4% to $109.89. Mining sector The 40% fall in the price of coal out of Newcastle since the start of the year continues to weigh on the coal miners. Whitehaven coal fell 5.62% to $8.06 New Hope fell 4.9% to $5.81 Yancoal fell 4.62% to $5.87 Coronado Coal fell 4.65% Fortescue Metals added 0.89% to $22.68 BHP added 0.02% to $48.13 Rio Tinto fell 0.4% to $123.65. Technical analysis We view the ASX 200 as being stretched to the upside and overbought after five straight weeks of gains. For the Elliott Wave followers, there is a five-wave advance from the October 6411 low to this week’s 7567.7 high. All of which warn that a pullback is looming. A break of support at 7460/50 (coming from recent lows) would indicate that a medium-term high is in place and that a corrective pullback is underway. We continue to favour trimming longs ahead of the bull market 7632 high and looking to either buy a sustained break of the 7632 high or a pullback into the 7200/7000 support area.
