Cable jumps as BOE doesn't boost stimulus

|By:, SA News Editor

Some had expected the bank - with Governor Mark Carney now settled into the top job - would boost stimulus in some fashion, perhaps adding to the QE program.

British stocks give up their gains, the FTSE 100 (EWU) back to flat on the session.
