The Guardian | Businesss | Inside The bank of England - November 10, 2015: Inside the Bank of England | Jill Treanor and Larry Elliott Jill Treanor   Up the stone steps. Through the heavy doors. Into an ornate lobby to be greeted by a security man wearing a pink frock coat and a top hat. These are a visitor’s first impressions of the Bank of England. The man in the fancy clothes, Reg Shaw, has worked there for 27 years. His coat is cleaned once a month. His top hat is custom-made by Patey of Mayfair, which has been making hats since 1695 – the year after the Bank of England opened its doors for the first time. All this sends a clear message: this place is old, this place is serious, this place has its own way of doing things. Like a medieval monastery, it is walled-off and self-contained. Behind this imposing facade, which occupies a three-acre site on Threadneedle Street, is one of the most powerful institutions in Britain. Upon entering, it feels a little like a mausoleum. The ceilings are high and there a

Bloomberg View - November 10, 2015: How Volatile Will Markets Get? How Volatile Will Markets Get? Mohamed A. El-Erian   The financial consequences of wider divergence among central bank policies -- a stronger dollar, great volatility in stocks and larger yield differentials among U.S. and German benchmark government bonds -- have been playing out over the last 10 days.   That was the easy part to predict. It is more difficult to determine how much these markets will move from here, the impact these moves will have on what central banks do next, and how the real economies will react in both the short- and longer-term. Understanding why is important for both investor positioning and policy formulation. QuickTake The Fed's Countdown Two developments have refocused traders’ attention on monetary policy divergence.
