Poll out on Reuters surveying 68 economists

  • All respondents expect rates to remain at 0.50% on 14 Dec meeting
  • Expects UK economy to grow 0.3% to 0.4% per quarter through to June 2019 (unchanged from November poll)
  • EU-UK free trade agreement most likely outcome of Brexit talks
  • Sees a 25% chance of a disorderly Brexit (compared with 30% in October poll)

Nothing that most of us wouldn't have guessed anyway. GBP/USD is still reeling higher from yesterday's move, but off the highs for the day - currently at 1.3530.
