Interest rates set to rise to highest level for almost a decade 

Evening Standard
The Bank of England is today expected to hike interest rates to their highest level for almost a decade. Rates are predicted to increase from 0.5 per cent to 0.75 per cent in what would mark only the second rise since the financial crisis. The move would see rates reach their highest level since March 2009, when they were slashed from 1 per cent to the emergency low of 0.5 per cent. Investec economist George Brown said he is "fairly confident" the Bank will move to raise rates and is pencilling in an 8-1 vote in favour. Mr Brown believes the economy has performed in line with the Bank's last forecasts in May, when it backed off from an anticipated hike. The Bank also edged a step closer to pressing the button in June when its chief economist Andy Haldane joined two fellow policymakers in calling for a rise. Read more Londoners braced for interest rates rise Howard Young at the EY Item Club believes the vote may be less definitive given that inflation figures recently came in lower than expected. They were unchanged at 2.4 per cent in June, while wage growth has also been weak. It has become an even closer call after survey figures on Wednesday signalled a weaker performance from the manufacturing sector in July, according to Mr Archer. But he said this is "unlikely to deter" the MPC from raising rates. He said: "We believe that the odds still favour the Bank of England lifting interest rate from 0.50% to 0.75% on Thursday after the August MPC meeting - most likely following a split vote." He added: "With interest rates down at 0.50%, the Bank of England would clearly likely to gradually normalise monetary policy given that it is essentially an emergency low rate. "Furthermore, inflation remains above target and the labour market looks relatively tight with the MPC considering that there is little slack left in the economy."... read more
