The Pound Sterling had also slid as low as $1.0763 in the early morning of Thursday as London deals one day after the BoE had snapped up its long-dated government bonds, or gilts, to prevent a material risk to stability.
The British central bank had also vowed Wednesday to buy as many of the gilts as it was needed to calm the markets which had been reportedly plagued by concerns that last week’s UK budget will send debt soaring.
