The first week of November promises to be eventful, as we have the Fed meeting, the BOE update, and the NFP release. Read more details here.
After election effects on the BOE
The Bank of England will conduct a meeting and release a monetary policy summary at 14:00 MT time on December 19.
The monetary policy summary is published every month, which helps to keep investors updated with the current economic situation. The summary contains the votes on the interest rate, forecasts, and other policy measures. During the previous meeting, the votes for the rate changes split unexpectedly, as two out of nine members of the bank's monetary policy committee supported a cut of the interest rate. Let's see if the result of the UK general election affects the BOE decision this time.
IF the BOE is optimistic, the GBP will rise;
If the BOE is pessimistic, the GBP will fall.
Geopolitical factors and inflation remain the main drivers of financial markets. Let’s see how to use that in trading!
Great Britain will publish the Inflation Rate on October 20, at 09:00 MT time (GMT+3).
This week may be the most important since the year started as the Fed assess the economic outlook and the US presents fresh NFP readings.
