Reuters poll time and the views are out on the BOE

  • None of the 61 economists polled see them hiking next week
  • Median view is that rates rise in Q1 2016
  • Rates seen at 1.75% (2.0% prior) by end of 2017 & 2.25% (2.5% prior) by end of 2018

A lot of chatter among pollsters that the FOMC holding fire puts the heat on the BOE to do the same

While there's not many looking for the MPC to move next week, a strong jobs report back on the 18th may see the vote for hikes increase
