Global Macro Comment — Trump wins the presidential election

Trump has won the American presidential election, and both the House of Representatives and the Senate have Republican majorities. The major uncertainty regarding President Trump's political agenda will probably lie like a wet blanket over the economy in the near future.

Macro Comment UK — No further cuts from the Bank of England

At its November meeting, the Bank of England (BoE) kept its monetary policy stance unchanged and dropped its easing bias, citing prospects for higher inflation due to a weaker GBP. The BoE now underlines that there are limits to its tolerance for an inflation overshoot. On the other hand, the BoE expects GDP growth to drop further than previously foreseen due to market worries about a 'hard' Brexit. We reiterate our expectation of an unchanged Bank Rate ahead and maintain our expectation for the GBP to strengthen somewhat from current levels vs. the EUR in the near term.
