Interest rates pull back?

It was always a potential reason for raising interest rates back in the day - the fact that in the near future (ie now) the central banks would need to lower them again to give a bit of stimulus. 

That seems to be happening. 

We have the Fed spewing dovish tones whilst the BoE has downgraded its economic outlook to its lowest level since the financial crisis which let’s not forget was a decade ago amid mounting uncertainty over Britain’s exit from the EU.

stocks are loving it. Granted that has a couple other factors like trade war talks. Would be interested in what people are thinking. I don’t like to predict these things but the writing seems to be on the wall. 

Brexit has shown it’s worrying face as well. Read in the FT this morning “Nearly four-fifths of the gilts in circulation are held by UK investors and the market has become increasingly reliant on domestic support. Last year foreign investors’ net purchasing of gilts hit its lowest level for more than three years.” 80% held by uk investors? That seems like a hella lot to me? Is that normal?
