    Analysts at Rabobank explained that Thursday was a busy day for central banks. As expected the Bank of England left policy on hold yesterday in an unanimous decision.

    Key Quotes:

    The Norges Bank left the door open for further easing though the Governor made clear his resistance to negative interest rates. The SNB confirmed steady policy.

The SNB repeated its warning that it could intervene to protect its overvalued currency from unwanted inflows."
