Key Quotes



“While the vote to maintain policy was 9-0 with no dissenters, minutes show that some on the MPC saw diminishing risks that a small rate cut would derail the economic recovery."



"BOE stressed that the timing of a hike remains data dependent, and suggested that new forecasts next month in its Quarterly Inflation Report will be key. Minutes will be followed by June retail sales on Thursday and advance Q2 GDP on Friday."



"Momentum appears to be strong as we move into Q3, and firm data will surely feed into expectations of an earlier BOE tightening path".
