Boe Interest Rates.

Recommended Posts

BoE Interest rate decisions used to be a very popular thread topic.

Have decision days now become irrelevant?

When do people see any likely movement and in what direction?

Interest rates will stay at 5% because thats an easy figure to do the sums with and the government and BoE are a bit rubbish with maths.

Seriously though I reckon they will stay at 5% at least till the end of the year...

I think the BoE will finally see sense and help 'joe public' understand the correlation between interest rates and inflation by moving from the complex percentage figure to a simple base-sixteen index system.

All will be well.

I guess I should explain why I think a cut -

The banks have just bought a load of worthless B and B shares in the vain hope of propping it up.

A 1% cut will be their reward.

Interesting theory.

Do you think it'll 'start' happening on Thursday?

I'll stick my neck out and say yes.

By Thursday the big banks will have to decide whether to bail out B&B or spend the money on a Latte from Starbucks, If the banks decide not to bail out B&B I will be making a bid with some change I found down the back of my sofa.

There may be something in it but I don't think they could be that blatant as to start so soon after the various inflation warnings.

Well it's a good theory so I won't mock you but I'll hope you're wrong all the same ;)

I'm cleaning the car tomorrow, we may be able to put a rescue bid together.

Can I start early?

They need the money, and to pull the plug on the BTL fookers who they now have in their grasp.

BTW..what is the relationship between the BOE/IMF/Worldbank?

Personally I think it will be a hold.

Too much bearish news about at the minute and they really don't want to freak the sheeple out.

Certainly I have been wondering what their reward might be for subscribing to 30% of nothing.

A 1% cut that will help the banks make a nice bit of profit as it wouldn't get passed on, they'll just take it as profit to try and rebuild their books after they've then manipulated the Libor rate.

I was going to clean the sofa with the exact same hope... perhaps we could combine our bids and buy up several other small lenders...
