Will the GBP advance on a strong BOE policy?

Will the GBP advance on a strong BOE policy?

The Bank of England gives the interest rate press conference on Thursday at 14:00 MT time.

Instruments to trade: EUR/GBP, GBP/USD, GBP/CAD, GBP/CHF

The last activity from the side of the Bank of England was a unanimous vote to keep the rate unchanged at 0.1% after it was reduced twice in March to respond to the virus damage. The policymakers expressed their commitment to support the economy and maintain a possibly favorable financial climate in the UK. The latter has been fortified by an extensive policy of quantitative easing the Bank has been implementing. Nevertheless, similar to other countries, an increase in unemployment is expected in line with economic damage in the nearest future. Coupled with Brexit, this period promises to be one of the toughest challenges for the British economy and the Bank of England. We will be looking into the details and subtle messages about the economic outlook in the report of the Bank of England’s policymakers while the rate is expected to stay steady.

  • If the bank’s message is optimistic, the GBP will rise.
  • If the bank’s message is not very optimistic, the GBP will fall.
