    UPDATE 2-Sterling slips back after BoE holds rates but slashes Q2 growth forecast

    The central bank's policymakers, as expected, voted unanimously to keep interest rates on hold at 0.75%. The BoE message was far less dovish than the U.S. Federal Reserve and European Central Bank, which this week opened the door to rate cuts and more stimulus to counter any economic slowdown and rising trade tensions.

    London's FTSE 100 swiftly climbed to a session high as its international stocks got a lift from a hit to sterling after the Bank of England cut its economic growth forecast, adding on to earlier cheer that was brought on by the Fed's softer stance.

    UPDATE 2-FTSE 100 enjoys best day in 4 months after Draghi's "appetizer"

    London's main stock index recorded its best one-day gain in more than four months on Tuesday as a promise of more stimulus if required from European Central Bank (ECB) chief Mario Draghi lifted UK shares across sectors. The FTSE 100 index ended 1.2% higher, after having earlier touched levels not seen in two months, and the FTSE 250 midcap index added 0.8% after Draghi said the central bank would need to ease policy again if inflation did not head back to its target. The ECB's comments came in the midst of a two-day meeting of the U.S. Federal Reserve that money market pricing shows should clear the way to a cut in interest rates by the central bank next month.
