The Bank of England buys government bonds instead of a planned sale



UK government bonds Bank of England

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.

Goldman Sachs stock forecasts: Goldman has downgraded its recommendation for global stocks for the next 3 months to “below market”



Goldman Sachs stock forecasts

A new Goldman Sachs stock forecast has emerged. Analysts at U.S. bank Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE:GS) have downgraded their recommendation for global stocks for the next three months to “below market” and maintained an “above market” recommendation for cash amid recessionary risks, Bloomberg writes.

“Current stock valuations may not fully reflect the risks involved, and there’s a chance they will drop even further before they bottom out. Also have a disappointing Goldman Sachs economic forecast,” the Goldman strategist team, led by Christian Muller-Glissmann, wrote.

BlackRock, the world’s largest company by assets under management, advises investors to “divest from most stocks.”

Experts at Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) and JPMorgan Asset Management previously laid out similar concerns after the world’s top central banks signaled their firm’s resolve to fight inflation, sending global stocks plunging in the past few days.

Goldman analysts last week sharply lowered their forecast for the value of the U.S. S&P 500 stock index for the end of this year, to 3,600 points from the previously expected 4,300 points. The day before, the indicator finished trading at 3655 points.
