A day after the U.S. Federal Reserve moved to pump another $600 billion into the banking system to strengthen the U.S. economy, the Bank of England decided against any new stimulus measures for Britain, leaving its bond purchasing program at £200 billion, or $322 billion. The main interest rate remains atf 0.5 percent.

At its meeting, the European Central Bank left its benchmark interest rate at 1 percent. Investor attention was focused instead on anything that E.C.B. President Jean-Claude Trichet might say later in the day about the bank’s plans to tighten monetary policy — even as the Fed moves in the other direction.
