Bank of England to send new rates message in last year before Brexit

https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-britain-boe/bank-of-england-to-send-new-rates-message-in-last-year-before-brexit-idUKKBN1FS00P

 

"The Bank of England is expected to say on Thursday that another interest rate increase could be nearing as Britain’s economy grows faster than expected ahead of its departure from the European Union in just over a year’s time."

 

Comedy gold.


Why did no one see this coming.

" The housing market, which is key for consumer confidence, has steadily lost momentum since the Brexit vote. "

No it hasn't -  prices have still been racing up, unfortunately.

This is just a political statement, means nothing in reality.

They will raise rates when they have no other option, but now can sit tight.

Getting behind a curve isn't a very clear process. The concerns expressed by the dissenting members of the MPC is that too little now will mean too severe a response later in the year or post-independence. So it's not clear they can sit tight, especially when wage pressure has raised its head in the UK. I'm 95% expecting what we've been promised, but nothing is certain now.

I seem to recall several trolls saying this last year....unfortunately ( for them ) they were wrong.

 

They are still wrong.

 

The US are raising rates.  The UK MUST follow.

Oh dear.

Looks like Carneys rep is starting to blow up.

FT has a big read on Canada's housing bubble/home loan crisis - calling it what it is.

Comments are pointing the finger.

Best news in a long time, and there's been no shortage of good news lately.

A 'too severe response later' suits me just fine.
