BoE interest rate decision 2nd August


Recommended Posts

This is it. We’re looking at a near 80% odd expectation of a rate rise despite many thinking that it may not be the best course of action in the long run. 

What are people’s expectations of the August rate hike? Likely to happen for good reason, or really for the BoE MPC to save face? Continued slow rate rises are needed I’m sure... but doesthe data support it? 

Second rate rise in 10 odd years. One thing’s for sure the banks are going to make bank (pun intended) if this comes through. Could be worth getting on the sector ETFs and short term stock swings. Steeper futures curve, better profitability on consumer debt / mortgages etc, whilst not as much of a pay out on banking interest, and latency in clients switching to bigger and better bank accounts. 

So where do we think things are heading? 

Good ida for a rate rise? 

GBPUSD and EURGBP estimates?

I would take Sentance over Blanchflower any day and the 'Carney face save' we have seen before when on nothing more than referendum 'fears' he lowered rates to 0.25% in Aug 2016, a mistake (imo) that he would not correct til late 2017. That's a whole year of a growing economy being stifled by ultra low rates.

Thanks jamesig for that. The question I have is how much does the Fed decision have an impact on these things? Or is the decision basically known now basis UK Data?

    • Most Asian stock indices were little changed on Monday following gains in European and US markets last week as investors are refocusing their minds on interest rates with the US Federal Reserve (Fed) expected to hike its rates by 25 basis points and the European Central Bank (ECB) and Bank of England (BoE) by 50 basis points this week. Major global stock indices are expected to end January higher amid slowing inflation, weakening economic data and mixed corporate earnings in the US which point towards a slower pace of central bank policy tightening. After slow start with German preliminary GDP and Spanish CPI data on Monday, US corporate giants such as Apple, Alphabet, Amazon, Meta Platforms and Exxon Mobil are expected to report earnings later this week.
