Sterling

GBP/USD 1 Week Chart
An early morning slump in the Pound (GBP) was reversed this morning as markets began to speculate on the possibility of the Bank of England raising interest rates earlier than expected. The dissent of policymaker Kristin Forbes in last week’s policy meeting and expectations that inflation will continue surging this month has prompted economists to forecast that the BoE may hike rates later this year.

Greenback Treading Water

The greenback appears to have treaded water in a very quiet, slightly nervous overnight session.  Yesterday afternoon, a re-hashed comment by US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin supporting a “strong dollar”, lifted the US dollar across the board. Shortly afterwards, the ECB’s Ewald Nowotny, musing about how the central bank could end quantitative easing, said “The American model was to finish bond purchases first, but this model might not transfer well to Europe, then added, “interest rates also wouldn’t have to be increased simultaneously nor to the same extent.” “The ECB could also raise the deposit rate earlier than the prime rate,” Traders only saw the last line, about interest rates rising, and EURUSD soared along with EUR crosses, including EURCAD.

Pound Rallies after Lone BoE Vote for Rate Hike

Sterling

GBP/USD 1 Week Chart
The Pound (GBP) received an unexpected boost yesterday as a Bank of England (BoE) policymaker broke ranks and voted to raise interest rates in the March meeting. While the monetary policy committee (MPC) ultimately voted 8-1 to leave interest rates unchanged at a record low of 0.25%, the dissent from Kristin Forbes was enough to send markets crazy as she argued that the rapid rise in inflation and strong employment stats were indications that the BoE should be looking to tighten monetary policy.

Dollar Steady after FOMC Drop

The US dollar was thrashed after the delivered what can best be described as a “doveish rate hike” on Wednesday. That moved had been well-telegraphed by Fed officials well ahead of time which gave rise to expectations for an upward shift in the pace of 2017 rate increases.  It didn’t happen. Traders bailed out of long US dollar positions and the greenback dropped across the G10 currency bloc. View article >

Pound Rallies on Rate Hike Speculation

Sterling

GBP/USD 1 Week Chart
The Pound (GBP) rallied from multi-week lows against the other majors this morning following a report from the Times that the Bank of England (BoE) may consider raising interest rates soon. Analysts for the newspaper believe that the Bank should begin planning a rate hike to 0.5% in reaction to the accelerated rate of inflation. However Sterling is likely to cede some of this morning’s gains later in the day as economists predict that the latest employment data will report a fall in Average Earnings at the start of the year.
