Super Thursday was certainly not the best description of today's events at the Bank of England, but let's face it, it was never going to be.
These quarterly events are often at least one of the highlights of the week, with there being an interest rate decision, new economic projections and a press conference with the Governor and his colleagues. But with the UK being three months from potentially exiting the EU without a deal, the BoEs hands were tied and their forecasts borderline useless.
Apart from reassure everyone of their readiness to act in the worst case, no-deal scenario, there isn't much they could offer. There's no incentive to cut rates at the moment as the economy is doing alright and much of the data is supportive of higher rates, not lower.
Given what the Bank has had to contend with over the last few years, this has probably been one of the more pleasant quarterly events and that could not have been more reflected in the markets where the pound barely budged.
And if that wasn't enough, the point at which the press officer was basically begging for more questions perfectly summed the afternoon up.
