  1. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09pl66b The actual documentary is called 'Shaking the Magic Money Tree'. Since the financial crisis, no less than £435billion of new money has been created through the policy of "quantitative easing", equivalent to a fifth of Britain's annual GDP. In this programme, financial journalist Michael Robinson finds out what happened to this staggering sum of money, and evaluates its effect on the lives of us all. With the help of expert testimony, Robinson explains how this controversial policy works, effectively creating money at the push of a button.
  2. In 2014 the Bank of England stopped reporting data that had been required since 1844, due to concerns that it might reveal Bank Operations and reduce the ability of the Old Lady to intervene to save the markets. That the decision to recommend that was made by three ex-BoE employees, is irrelevant. Anyway The BoE reports this now http://www.bankofengland.co.uk/publications/Documents/weeklyreport/2016/2610.pdf The new weekly report. It has a thing called "Loan to Asset Purchase Facility" That seems to increase by something like £2bn to £2.5bn each week. Or at least
  3. Conversations about the so called soft-cap keeping turning up in threads where they really have no place, so I figure we can keep that debate focussed by keeping it in one place. This is the kind of view that I see expressed on one side of the debate: Source As best I understand it the argument rests on something about the average LTI in 2014 Source It then appears to run something like this - by introducing a soft cap of no more than 15% of new lending at more than 4.5x the Bank of England was both normalising lending at 4.5x household income and calling for more lending (i.e. ho
  4. UK household debt is a key risk to financial stability - http://www.bankofengland.co.uk/publications/Pages/news/2016/301116.aspx We're not seeing the full impact yet. How long can the Bank of England tolerate its current pricing model to absorb those price increases, without raising rates... That depends on individual agendas, egos and overviews of success. My personal perspective is that the current rate cannot be pegged for the next 30 years. The country is in spending frenzy via credit card syndromes. As for house prices, if the internal inhabitants cannot afford, then the co
  5. First post in a long while... But very relevant to how the markets will react and what that will do to the debate. The Government issues debt and a calendar of all the planned issuance dates can be found here http://www.dmo.gov.uk/reportView.aspx?rptCode=D5D&rptName=fa29db60-825e-4dc9-93a1-0ec538b00338||GILT%20MARKET%20(10)&reportpage=Issuance_Calendar It shows the next planned debt issuance by the DMO will be on tuesday 5th July. At that point the market will start to tell the government what it thinks. At the moment HMG is proposing to borrow at 1.5% for 5 years. Whether there w
  6. Consultation opened today. Have only briefly scanned. Report includes analysis of buy to let market. Anybody in the know over what this will mean for buy to let? http://www.theguardian.com/money/2015/dec/17/bank-of-england-given-powers-rein-buy-to-let-market https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/consultation-on-financial-policy-committee-powers-of-direction-in-the-buy-to-let-market/financial-policy-committee-powers-of-direction-in-the-buy-to-let-market#the-buy-to-let-market
  7. FreeTrader has already flagged the April 2015 Trends in Lending released today, but I think that the section on buy-to-let could do with a slightly louder shout. As I've flagged on another thread last July Donald Kohn, external member of the Financial Policy Committee, made an odd remark about BTL asserting that it was a safety valve that wasn't entirely safe. I'm going to try to avoid editorialising, but just encourage other posters to dip into Trends in Lending April 2015. The discussion in Trends in Lending is very dry, but one thing that it does go to the trouble of pointing out is that b
  8. Many, many years ago, back when Northern Rock was imploding there was a lot of discussion here about what the Bank of England were doing, and it showed up through a historical report that Bank of England had been reporting since 1844 called the Bank Return. When I was looking to update an old thread on the size of the Bank of England (= amount of fictitious money printed), here http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/index.php?/topic/66763-time-to-celebrate-bank-of-england-got-bigger-again/?p=909399373 I found that the Bank of England have stopped publishing this data because it is viewed as
