Brexit deal 'could be done within three weeks'

Thursday's comments from the BoE reinforces our view that the central bank will raise rates in the second quarter of next year, after the UK's European Union exit date. As a result, he said there will likely be "short-term volatility" in the economic data.

Backbench Brexiteers are adamant they will rebel should the deal tie Britain into a customs union indefinitely.

In the case of a no-deal Brexit, there would be a hit to supply, "potentially fairly large and certainly more rapid than one is accustomed to in an advanced economy", Carney suggested.

The BOE also noted that the situation is now different from just after the 2016 referendum, when inflation was below target and demand was weaker than supply.

Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said a disruptive no-deal Brexit was not the bank's main assumption but if there was a shock to the economy, it was not possible to say if rates would need to rise or fall in response. And it could add stimulus by buying corporate bonds.

The Bank of England has kept its key interest rate on hold as it waits for the outcome of the stalled Brexit discussions between Britain and the European Union.

The Bank of England has said that a prominent United Kingdom scientist will feature on its new polymer £50 note, and are calling on the public to put forward nominations.

The bank said there has been little evidence of significant precautionary stock-building ahead of Brexit, though it said it's possible that could occur over the rest of this year and early next if concerns about Brexit persist.

The bank said consumer spending performed better than it had expected but businesses were holding back on investment until there was clarity about Brexit.

Meanwhile, bullish traders took cues from a more hawkish-than-expected BOE rate hike outlook, noting that more rate hikes might be needed as there could be overheating in the economy during the second half of 2019.

Britain would experience a "moderate" recession lasting four to five quarters in the event of a no-deal Brexit, S&P predicted.
