UK & Eurozone interest rates

mar bonnin palmer

As expected, at today's MPC and ECB meetings, the UK interest rate has been held at 0.5%, while the Eurozone rate has been cut to 1%.

The cut was already priced in to forex markets, meaning the exchange rate for buying Euros did not improve much. Jean-Claude Trichet's accompanying speech has however caused some volatility, as the Eurozone for the first time discussing a quantitative easing programme similar to those in the UK and USA.

The net result has been strength for the Euro, which is back down around the 1.12 level, having peaked at 1.1409 in earlier trading today. Currency brokers will be able to advise you of the latest movements.
