Mervyn King hints at more QE

28 July, 2011


The Bank of England governor, Mervyn King, has hinted today in a question session with a parliamentary committee, that the Quantitative Easing policy may not be over after all.

Based on February’s inflation report, King said that there were still significant risks to the UK’s recovery, and unsurprisingly the Pound has fallen on the back of his comments.

With Friday’s GDP adjustment poised to sent jitters through the currency markets if there is further bad news, commercial exchange rates are looking particularly fragile at present.
