United Kingdom

Bank of England minutes

At 9:30 GMT Bank of England (BoE) is to publish the minutes from its most recent meeting on policy. Released two weeks after the meeting itself, the minutes provide a full account of the policy discussion, including differences of view. They also record the votes of the individual members of the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC). On November 6th 7 members of the Committee probably voted in favor of keeping the benchmark interest rate unchanged, while 2 members probably supported a rate hike. In addition, all 9 members of the Committee probably voted to keep monetary stimulus unchanged. In case the central bank demonstrates a hawkish view in regard to inflation pressure in the UK, this heightens the probability of an interest rate hike, which usually has a positive effect on the pound. A dovish view, on the other hand, has the opposite effect.

Bank of England inflation and growth forecasts

The central bank revised down its economic growth forecasts by 0.2% for 2015 and 2016 to 2.9% and 2.6%. The bank kept its growth projection for the current year, according to which UK economy will probably expand 3.5%.
