Will the Bank of England revamp its quantitative easing programme?

Tomorrow's meeting of the monetary policy committee could be one of the more eventful of recent times with opinion split as to whether the Bank of England will inject more money into the quantitative easing programme or let it run its course when it hits £200 billion limit. The "clever money" would appear to be on a suspension or closure of the quantitative easing programme although there are concerns as to whether the UK economy is strong enough to take up any slack.

More and more we are seeing warnings of a potential double dip recession in the UK and whilst the closure of the quantitative easing programme is expected by many analysts, it would to a certain degree impact upon liquidity and money markets and potentially impact upon the UK economic recovery. There is no doubt that the weeks and months ahead will be very challenging for the Bank of England and the UK government would obviously prefer an injection of further funds to carry the economic recovery over to the next term of office.

There is visible nervousness in the investment and the money markets as we approach the next monetary policy committee meeting although we should be put out of our misery fairly soon!
