This Thursday will be marked by the meeting of the Bank of England which, like the Federal Reserve (Fed) and the European Central Bank (ECB), will pause in the news of monetary policy.

At this meeting of Monetary Policy Committee analysts point to a continuation of stimulus measures and the key interest rate at 0,1%.

As such, the main reason for interest in this meeting will be in the comments that the central bank may make on the economic outlook, namely the risks that the increase in the number of cases of Covid-19 in the United Kingdom may represent for the outlook.

The institution led by Andrew Bailey has said the risks are negative, so it must reiterate that it is ready to do whatever is necessary to support the economy.

This Thursday will also be marked by the disclosure by Eurostat of industrial import prices in June.

Also this Thursday, the results of Credit Agricole and Axa in France, Adidas and Lufthansa in Germany and CBS, Symantec and T-Mobile in the United States will be announced.
