The BoE will buy long-term Gilts every weekday until October 14, 2022

“On September 28, the Bank of England (BoE) unexpectedly announced that it would buy long-term Gilts every day of the week until October 14, 2022 to stabilize the Gilts market, and that the start of its quantitative tightening (QT) program would be postponed to October 31, 2022.
