Over half of the participants in Investment Week's Twitter poll believe the Bank of England will not raise interest rates in today's Monetary Policy Committee meeting, out of tune with markets predicting the Bank will go ahead with a 0.25% hike.
Investment Week's Twitter poll, which had 73 votes in total, showed 56% of respondents predict the BoE's Monetary Policy Committee will hold rates at 0.5% this month while 44% said the Bank will hike rates by 25 basis points.
This is very much in line with Investment Week's nine industry commentators, who decided rates should be maintained at current levels with a 5-4 split.
However, this is despite the swaps markets pricing in a 91% chance of a rate rise, according to Hargreaves Lansdown.
The results of the Twitter poll may have been driven by the weaker-than-anticipated data last month with the UK Consumer Price Index (CPI) remaining at 2.4% in June, its joint-lowest level in 14 months and missing analysts' expectations of an increase to 2.6%.
Furthermore, there has been increased uncertainty surrounding the Brexit negotiations with the chances of a 'no deal' scenario rising after the European Union rejected Prime Minister Theresa May's financial services proposal.
However, MPC members have been signalling a move to vote to increase rates with BoE chief economist Andy Haldane voting to hike rates at the last meeting in June, the first time he has not voted with the majority since joining the MPC in June 2014.
While BoE deputy governor Ben Broadbent on 24 July when asked if he would vote for an increase, said: "I do not know and I would not tell you." This has been seen as a potentially hawkish tone by the market.
Dean Turner, UK economist at UBS Wealth Management, commented: "Following a run of relatively decent data in the second quarter, and a number of somewhat hawkish speeches from MPC members, the markets have concluded that a hike on Thursday is a done deal.
"Expectations place the probability above 90%. For me, this seems a bit rich as there is every chance that they do not hike, which could leave markets disappointed.
"The data has been relatively decent, but for me the crucial point is that they not exactly signalling that underlying inflation pressures are, as yet, running away.
"Markets may think that a hike on Thursday is a foregone conclusion, but I am more wary.
"My reading of the data and the outlook suggest that there is enough out there for the MPC to conclude that, on this occasion, the cost of waiting a little longer remains negligible."
