The Bank of England buys government bonds instead of a planned sale
The Bank of England buys government bonds. It was decided to suspend the start of the previously announced government bond sales program and instead will start buying government bonds amid a sharp rise in their yields.
“UK government bonds Bank of England will start to buy from September 28. The purpose of these purchases is to return to normal market conditions. Purchases will be made in any scale, which is necessary to achieve the goal,” – said in a statement of the British Central Bank.
The yield on U.K. 10-year government bonds reached 4.611 percent in Wednesday’s trading, recording the highest increase since 1957 since the beginning of the month. After the Bank of England’s announcement, yields fell about 45 basis points to 4.07%. The news also caused yields on other government bonds around the world to fall.
The surge in yields on British government debt is caused by the previously announced large-scale tax cuts, which, according to British authorities, will increase the budget deficit in the current fiscal year by more than 70 billion pounds.
