E&Y ITEM Club has predicted that the Bank will not raise interest rates
again this year.
‘So the case for another immediate rise in rates is certainly not as solid as
the markets have predicted. Ernst & Young ITEM Club is of the view that the
MPC probably won’t raise rates again this year,’ the club said.
Professor Peter Spencer, chief economic advisor to the Ernst & Young ITEM
Club, says that according to the ‘flavour’ of the minutes of MPC meeting, the
narrow decision to raise interest rates in January ‘represented the February
decision brought forward, rather than an extra move to tighten policy’.
