Find out what we think of the chances of a UK interest rate hike tomorrow and what could happen to the pounds in your back pocket as a result
Last weeks positive UK GDP figures have bolstered the case for an increase in interest rates by a likely 0.25%. According to the futures markets, the odds of such a rate increase are now more than 80% in favour of a hike. To this extent if the BoE increases by 0.25% tomorrow a rise in Sterling should be mostly "priced in" and we should see a modest appreciation in the value of the pound. On the flipside, because expectations of a rate hike are so high, any decision by the bank to do nothing would be a big shock to financial markets. If interest rates are kept on hold this could trigger a sell-off of the pound immediately after the decision.
