August interest rate rise gets closer

Its time to fix those mortgage rates, come August there could be some people in Wolverhampton who have a shock to their monthly finances. August interest rate rise moves step closer the Bank of England has held interest rates but signalled an August rate rise is more likely than previously thought. In a decisive move, Andrew Haldane, the Bank’s chief economist, joined two other Monetary Policy Committee members in voting to raise rates to 0.75%. The nine-member MPC was split 6-3, with Bank governor Mark Carney leading the group who voted to hold rates at 0.5%. The last time three people “dissented” from the overall view, in June 2017, rates rose the following November. But economists believe that if the economy does show signs of picking up, an August rise is in play. Government borrowing figures published on Thursday boosted hopes among some economists that the economy may be gaining momentum. The pound jumped by about a cent against the dollar following the Bank’s decision, climbing back above the $1.32 level, as the possibility of an August rate rise appeared to increase. https://www.applefinance.co.uk
