The BoE is positioned to observe and follow the lead of other central banks in initiating a reduction in borrowing costs, following in the footsteps of the Federal Reserve and the ECB. This anticipated move is likely to occur no sooner than June or July. More details will be disclosed today as the UK regulator comments on its decisions and provides insights into future steps.
