The last time the Bank of England maintained the bank rate at a record low of 0.1% and the number of its asset purchases at 745 billion pounds. Officials warned that the British economy will take more time to rebound after the coronavirus damage than it was expected before. The central bank also mentioned a probability of negative interest rates. As for the British pound itself, it has been performing really great since late July amid the risk-on sentiment and hopes for a soon Brexit agreement. However, those expectations erased as EU-UK negotiators had failed to make any progress so far. The further prolongation of the Brexit deal will weigh more on the pound.
