    Bank of England leaves policy on hold amid Brexit uncertainty

    The Bank of England left its main lending rate unchanged at 0.75% on Thursday, in line with expectations. The central bank said new economic data has been mixed and the U.K.'s economic outlook will depend significantly on the nature and timing of Brexit. "Shifting expectations about the potential nature and timing of the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union have continued to generate volatility in UK asset prices, particularly the sterling exchange rate," said the BOE statement. "Brexit uncertainties also continue to weigh on confidence and short-term economic activity, notably business investment." The market reaction to the policy update was muted, with the British pound holding its losses in response. Sterling last bought $1.3115, down 0.6%. In other assets, the 10-year gilt also reacted little, last yielding 1.08%, while U.K. stock benchmark FTSE 100 held on to its modest gain, last up 0.4%
