Summer tipped for rate cut by Governor as he pledges he won't "walk away" from the job

Independent: Brexit: Bank of England Governor signals interest rate cut

He may end up getting kicked out. So, my long predicted rate cut is about to come to pass. Expectations are that it will be a 25bp cut to 0.25%. However, 2yr Gilts are being bid up bigly, to quote the next President of the USA, with rates collapsing on those to 0.105% I am expecting these to fall into negative territory forcing the BOE, which reacts to and competes with the market and is not in control, to cut to 0%, followed by negative rates to come as Britain becomes a safe haven whilst the EU becomes the focus of short positions and disintegration concerns. House prices are about to soar as this combines with FOREX house price discounts to foreigners who will flood in to front run border controls.

Good news for London house buyers

The Guardian: UK house price growth up in final set of figures before vote to leave EU

"Samuel Tombs, the chief UK economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, said: “Following the referendum, demand likely will weaken as unemployment begins to edge up and confidence falls. Meanwhile, banks soon will reflect the recent increase in funding costs in their mortgage rates. Prices in London look particularly vulnerable, given that job insecurity has increased in the City and banks will be thinking twice about high loan-to-income lending.” Foxtons, the London-focused estate agent, issued a profit warning this week. It believes that the vote to leave the EU will limit property sales in the capital for the rest of the year."

The Fergus saga continues.....

Torygraph: Britain's biggest landlord caught in Brexit turmoil - as he attempts to sell 1,000 properties

Is this not emblematic of the UK's housing market as the illusionary wealth of House Price Gains is so difficult to realise in the aggregate & can only rely on suckers mortgaging their lives away.

Stagnation and Decline (House Prices)

Telegraph: House prices to fall 5pc nationwide and tumble even further in London as worried home buyers back out

House prices and transaction levels will be hit by a "short, sharp shock for a quarter", as buyers pull out of chains amid the uncertainty that the vote to leave the European Union has created. Property experts warned that chains could collapse as worried buyers pull out of transactions or invoke "Brexit clauses", which allow them to back out if they don't like the outcome of the referendum.

Could this trigger the big one ?

BBC: Pound falls heavily as EU vote results come in

This is making 2008 seem like a minor hiccup. I remember 1992 when interest rates hit 14%. Of course Libertas might e right and next year your house might be worth £1000000000 or was that Zimbabwe dollars ? Is this the final punishment of the boomers against generation rent ? A lot of the boomers won't be happy when they see the price of their next BMW. Wait for the cries of "BoJo didn't tell us this would happen"
