Key Quotes

US Fed: Only 24% expect the Fed to raise rates at this week’s meeting, with 14% for October and 39%, in line with our expectation for a hike in December. That’s also 77% who would be surprised if the Fed were to hold off until the New Year. This is in line with our expectations for December to mark the Fed’s lift-off.”

BoE: 57% of clients expect the BoE to hike by February 2016, with an additional 28% expecting a hike in Q2 2016. Only 18% thought the BoE could hike before the Fed, while 82% said that is extremely unlikely or not possible. This falls broadly in line with our expectations for a February 2016 hike, while risks to a later hiking path remain.”
