The Bank of England has pushed interest rates above their financial crisis lows on Thursday, but made clear that it is not in a hurry to raise them in the future with uncertain leaving the UK on the horizon.

Nine rate setters in England was unexpectedly unanimous in its vote to raise rates to 0.75 percent from 0.50, the level at which they spent most of the last decade, only 15 months after the quarter and the month of voting, when they were reduced even lower.

Economists polled by Reuters mostly expected 7-2 vote for interest rate hikes.

The Bank of England said that the UK economy, although growing at a slower pace than in the past ahead of the quarter and month, was almost a “speed limit”, or full power, creating preconditions for a more home-grown ahead of inflationary pressures.

Well, interest rates remained one of a gradual and societies increases as Central Bank seen only part of the inflation is above the 2% target over the next few years.

This forecast is based on betting for investors who expect only one more rate hike in late 2019 or early 2020 Bank rate creeps up to 1.1% at the end of 2020. This was lower than the projection of figures 1.2 percent, the last time the Bank of England published projections for the economy in may.

The fifth largest economy in the world slowed down as the referendum in 2016 to leave the EU.

With less than eight months before the British exit from the EU, London and Brussels, as well as key members of the conservative Prime Minister Theresa may parties are still far apart on that future trade relations should look like.

The Bank of England said that the economy “may be significantly influenced the response of households, businesses and financial markets” in the news about a British exit from the EU.

However, the Bank continued to stress that the British economy was in danger of too much inflation, even with slower growth.

The Central Bank said that inflation in two years is likely to be 2.09%, which is above the target level of 2% in England.

The Bank of England said that the UK economy will grow this year at 1.4 percent, unchanged its forecast in may, but he pushed upwards its growth forecast in 2019, up 1.8% compared to the previous forecast of 1.7 percent.

Salaries are likely to grow annually by 2.5 per cent at the end of this year, slightly slower than projected in may, will rise to 3.25 percent in 2019, unchanged, as before.

Some economists from the private sector challenged the opinion of the Bank of England that inflation is building, and I think a rate hike now only risks turning the Central Bank of the UK, if you are unable to exit UK online.

The Bank of England Governor mark Carney said that all bets on future rate hikes from the Bank of England will be turned off if no-quarter and month.

Some investors believe that the risk of global trade war is another reason for caution in England.

In its statement Thursday, the Central Bank said it saw “the first signs that the actual and possible protectionist measures begin to have a negative impact” on world trade.

He also elaborated on his thinking about how this is probably its planned rates by publication of a new long-term forecast for the UK trends in real interest rates, or “R*” from zero to 1 percent, more than 2 percentage points below its pre-financial crisis.

Adjusted for the purpose of the Bank of England on inflation, this will mean that Bank rate of 2-3% to keep growth and inflation stable when the economy is operating at full capacity.

In the short term, Bank rate means the so-called equilibrium real interest rate, or “R*” is likely to be somewhat lower level, but do not evaluate.
