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.

    • Thetanuts Finance is shaking things up in DeFi with their focus on structured products and, of course, options trading. Thetanuts isn't the only player on the DeFi options field. Badger DAO, for instance, is another project offering options for Bitcoin alongside their other yield-generating tools. Meanwhile, Opyn uses something called an Automated Market Maker (AMM) to provide liquidity, similar to how Thetanuts plans to leverage Uniswap v3 pools.   They've got some interesting features, just landed on Bitget, and seem to be building a community. But options trading can be complex, and DeFi is still the wild west of finance.  What do you think? Worth a shot, or best to stick to simpler DeFi tools? Let's hear your thoughts in the comments!
    • You know that saying we always hear, "not your keys, not your assets"? Well, HashPack is taking that to heart and giving us the power to truly own our crypto. We've all been there, trusting some custodial wallet or centralized exchange to hold our digital cash, only for them to mess it up or straight-up exit scam with our funds. HashPack is putting an end to that BS by making sure we're the only ones in control of our private keys and assets. No more relying on third parties to hold our crypto hostage. With HashPack, your accounts are fully decentralized and secure, just like crypto was always meant to be. And if that's not enough to make you feel safe, they've even integrated with top-tier hardware wallets like Ledger, D'CENT, and Citadel for an extra layer of protection. Talk about having your back! But HashPack isn't just about keeping our crypto on lockdown. These guys are on a mission to revolutionize the entire web3 experience. Let's be real, navigating this decentralized world can be a total pain in the **** sometimes, with all sorts of friction and barriers standing in the way. Well, HashPack is tackling those issues head-on with their user-centric products and services. And get this – HashPack has already achieved some seriously impressive feats in the space. They've built HashConnect, a secure dApp connection library, introduced trustless peer-to-peer trades, and have been leading the charge in ecosystem innovation. These guys are the real deal, no cap. But wait, it gets even better! HashPack's utility token, $PACK, is now available for trading on Bitget exchange. And not only that, but Bitget is running an ongoing campaign with a $3,000 $PACK prize pool up for grabs! Can you believe that? This is our chance to not only support a game-changing project like HashPack but also potentially win big in the process. So, what do you say, fellas? Are you ready to take back control of your crypto keys and assets? Are you hyped about the prospect of a seamless, user-friendly web3 experience? If so, then HashPack is the project you need to be paying attention to. Trust me, this is just the beginning of their journey – and I, for one, can't wait to see what they'll accomplish next!
    • You know, after being around the crypto block a few times, I finally feel like someone is getting scaling right with this Taiko project. They seem to have cracked the code on addressing the major headaches we've all faced trying to scale Ethereum in a truly decentralized, transparent, and efficient manner. With Taiko, the whole show is open-source, permissionless, and driven by the community itself – no shadowy centralizers pulling the strings behind the curtain. And get this – they're actually writing all that juicy block data directly onto the Ethereum mainnet! That means everything is out in the open, decentralized, and there for anyone to verify the latest chain state. No more black box nonsense. Transparency is clearly a huge priority here too. Taiko insists that every single bit of executable data has to be publicly available and in sequence. So we regular folks can generate proofs for blocks using only what's out there for all to see. No more having to blindly trust some convoluted system, you know? But Taiko isn't just focused on keeping things open and transparent – they're also hellbent on making the whole block creation and proposing process as streamlined and efficient as can be. Their approach levels that playing field so anyone has a fair shot at adding blocks based on legit factors like fees and MEV rewards. No more relying on a handful of big dogs to keep the wheels turning. And you've got to admire their innovative spirit – they're even splitting up the block submission process into two parts to cut down on those pesky bottlenecks we've seen cripple other systems. Genius, if you ask me! Now, I know some of the jaded old-timers in our crowd might roll their eyes and say "Here we go again, another overblown project overpromising the moon." But hear me out – Taiko has managed to turn heads and rustle up over $22 million from major investment heavyweights like Sequoia China, OKX Ventures, KuCoin Ventures, and they've even gotten a nod from ol' Vitalik himself! That's no mean feat, let me tell you. I truly believe Taiko is onto something special here. They're taking on the huge challenges of decentralization, transparency, and efficiency head-on, but doing it in a way that doesn't abandon Ethereum's core values and principles. If they can pull this off, it could be the real deal for finally making scaling a practical reality. And you know what's got me extra excited? Taiko's very own $TKO token is now available for pre-trade over on Bitget exchange! I might just have to throw a little support behind this promising project and see where it goes. Who's with me, huh? Let's dive into the future of decentralized Ethereum scaling together!
