Money markets  had also priced in a second hike before year-end now this to February. The BoEs Governor Andrew Bailey stated the Bank had never indicated it would act at a particular meeting.

In a further central bank surprise, the Czech central bank hiked rates by 1.25% only a day after the Polish central bank was more hawkish than expected.
