Trade the British pound on the inflation data
The level of British consumer price index (CPI) will be released on January 16 at 11:30 MT time.
This indicator accounts for a majority of overall inflation. The data is very important, as the bank of England uses it to measure the inflation level. Last month the index remained at the same level of 2.3%, as it was forecast by analysts. Higher-than-expected data will bring a positive momentum to the British currency.

• IF CPI is lower, than expected, the GBP will fall.
