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?

    • ARTFI's mission to make high-value art accessible through fractional ownership and NFTs is a fascinating concept. Let's explore other projects breaking down barriers in the art world and bringing ownership to the masses. ARTFI offers some unique features beyond just fractionalization: Focus on Blue-Chip Art, their concentration on established artists attracts high-net-worth collectors and increases investment potential. Industry Endorsements, supports from prominent figures adds credibility to the platform. So, is ARTFI your one-stop shop for owning a piece of an iconic painting because they are listed on Bitget? Maybe or maybe not. There are other options, and the art market itself is evolving alongside NFTs. What do you think? Is ARTFI a revolutionary force in art ownership, or just a trendy gimmick? Have you explored any other fractional ownership or art-related NFT projects? Share your thoughts in the comments!
    • Mystiko Network like competitors like Omni are promoting interoperability and scalability in the crypto landscape. However, Mystiko is standing out with seamless compatibility with various L1 and L2 blockchains which they have extended to cross-chain bridges, wallets, DEXs, and other dApps. By eliminating blockchain barriers, Mystiko Network allows users to transfer assets and interact with various dApps more easily. This focus on interoperability goes hand-in-hand with scalability. Plus, their ZK SDK allows developers to build secure and private dApps while reducing costs and simplifying cross-chain transactions. It has successfully raised $29.25 million and have forge backing from industry giants like Samsung Next, Coinlist, Hashkey Capital etc... emphasizes it potential and gives it a firm foothold in the interoperability niche. Mystiko is about to hit another milestone as their token XZK is about to be listed on a Tier1 CEX like Bitget further exposing it to investors! Overall, they are ticking the right boxes and I believe they are a project to watch!
