The market is resilient ahead of the speeches of Fed’s Powell and ECB President Lagarde, but there are still interesting movements.
Bank of England’s Meeting
|The UK economy is recovering despite the negative impact of Brexit negotiations. As a result, traders have reasons to expect that the Bank of England may raise interest rates soon, but not this time. The regulator will announce its decision at 13:00 MT time on March 22. Hawkish comments will be enough to send the GBP up. The BOE will also release the minutes of the meeting. The pound will strengthen if at least some members of the Monetary Policy Committee vote for a rate hike. On the other hand, if the Bank of England doesn’t appear ready to increase rates in the foreseeable future, the pound will fall.|
The uncertainty over US fiscal stimulus and Brexit, and also rising new virus cases deteriorated the market mood. That’s why we can expect the further rally of the US dollar and the fall of riskier assets today.
The market sentiment is mixed, but there are still interesting movements on the market.
