Following dovish comments from several Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) members and yesterday’s poor UK GDP data, markets are now pricing in a Bank of England rate cut in January with a 50% probability.

However, the Deloitte CFO survey showed a marked rebound, with 38% planning to raise capital expenditure over the next 12 months – the highest proportion since 2015.
