This outcome matches that of last month's meeting, which was the first in the tenure of new BoE governor Mark Carney. He surprised markets by releasing a statement about future policy following the July meeting, and minutes released later revealed that the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) had voted unanimously against further money stimulus, following months of disagreement over the issue.
No statement was issued by the BoE on Thursday, however, but it said it would release its review into forward guidance with the inflation report next week.
Robert Wood, chief U.K. economist at Berenberg Bank, told CNBC he was surprised there was no statement from Threadneedle Street. "Well we're waiting for next week," he said. "I thought there would be a statement, but obviously not."
Kathleen Brooks, research director at Forex.com, said the lack of statement did not mean that the BoE wouldn't release statements going forward.
"It may not do so in the same month as an inflation report is released, so we still expect some changes to the BoE's communications strategy in the coming months," she said in a note.
