Bank of England Governor Bailey spoke earlier today. Baily said that the slowing of COVID infections was a “huge accomplishment”, however he noted “If I had to summarize the diagnosis, its positive, but with a large dose of cautionary realism”
He said that the central bank’s main goal was to get inflation to the targeted 2% and keep it there before anymore burden of proof was needed on the sustainability of the economy.
Contrast those comments with comments from some ECB officials last week, who noted that they felt the ECB needs to pick up the pace of its bond buying program to keep interest rates low, and the Sterling should outperform the Euro
