As of 10:03 am EST, I haven’t seen any news out of the Bank of England discussing modifications to findings in its August monetary policy report. The current bank rate set by the Bank of England is 0.1% with a target rate of inflation at 2.0%. The Bank of England currently purchases GBP895 million in government bonds in an attempt to keep borrowing rates low for consumers and businesses.
The Bank of England expects inflation to continue rising over the Bank’s current 2.0% target for the next two years before falling back to the target.
