GLOBAL MARKETS: Market worries over the global growth outlook prevailed in European trade on Thursday with major European equity markets standing in negative territory in early trade and major government bonds retaining a firm tone. Looking at the calendar, the BoE meets today and is expected to stay put on its monetary policy. Market focus will be on the BoE Governor’s press conference and the updated BoE Inflation Report which is likely to show growth forecasts revised downward.
