Indian central bank cuts interest rate

Ricky Knox, CEO of digital-only challenger bank Tandem, says the Bank of England should cut the interest rates to boost the economy in the midst of Brexit uncertainty.

After the predicted follow-up cut next quarter, the RBI Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) was forecast to keep interest rates on hold at least until the fiscal year starting April 2020.

The economy isn't ready for a no-deal, no-transition Brexit, Carney said, adding that the probability of such an outcome has increased.

Mr Carney said: "When the economy is growing more slowly, the probability of it having a negative quarter or two goes up".

India's central bank on Thursday unexpectedly lowered interest rates and, as anticipated, shifted its stance to "neutral" from "calibrated tightening" to boost a slowing economy after a sharp fall in the inflation rate.

"Taking into consideration these developments and assuming a normal monsoon in 2019, the path of CPI inflation is revised downwards to 2.8 per cent in Q4:2018-19, 3.2-3.4 per cent in H1:2019-20 and 3.9 per cent in Q3:2019-20, with risks broadly balanced around the central trajectory", RBI said.

Nevertheless, the forecasts suggested that just one more quarter-point hike would be needed in the next three years to return inflation to close to the 2 per cent target, down from nearly three hikes seen in November.

That represented the biggest cut in its projections since the period immediately after the 2016 Brexit referendum and put Britain on course for its weakest economic growth in the 10 years since the global financial crisis. A sharper-than-expected slowdown in the global economy is also impacting United Kingdom growth, according to the Bank.

"Uncertainty around negotiations has obviously intensified since November and is now weighing more heavily on activity, predominantly lower business investment and tighter financial conditions".

Sterling at first weakened on the news but quickly recovered to trade flat on the day against the dollar at 1.29 and higher against the euro at 1.14.

India vs New Zealand, 2nd T20I Dream 11 prediction
But once De Grandhomme and Taylor were back in the dug out, New Zealand lost momentum and ultimately folded for 158. Ross Taylor was forced to run singles as the hit-me balls dried up and de Grandhomme was also slowed down.

The global economy has continued to slow in recent months, reflecting a tightening in global financial conditions and the impact that trade tensions caused by Brexit and the strained relationship between United States and China, the BoE said.

This is being driven by sharp falls in business investment, as well as a drop in consumer spending and signs of a weaker United Kingdom housing market.

The EC slashed its forecast for Italy to just 0.2 per cent for the whole year, compared with a previous forecast of 1.2 per cent, while it also trimmed Germany's forecast to 1.1 per cent from 1.8 per cent. The economy could grow by around 0.5 percentage point more over the coming three years.

India's December headline inflation fell to an 18-month low of 2.19 percent, well below the RBI's medium-term 4 percent target. The Federal Reserve has changed direction, and now many analysts expect no United States rate hikes this year, after four in 2018.
