|The system X-X-X shows how many members voted for a rate hike, how many – to cut the rate, and how many – to keep the rate hold. Comparing these three numbers with those of the previous minutes, we can make predictions about the future actions of the regulator. The last vote was in December and all members voted not to change the rate. Back then the pound’s reaction was muted. This time the central bank will also release its quarterly Inflation Report, so GBP can make big moves versus other currencies.|
