GBP Awaits Bank of England’s Policy Report

GBP Awaits Bank of England’s Policy Report

Information is not investment advice

What will happen?

The Bank of England will present a monetary policy statement on Thursday, August 4 at 14:00 MT (GMT+3).

Experts and analysts are confident about the future of UK monetary policy. The market expects the Bank's Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) to vote unanimously to keep the bank rate at 0.10% and the target stock of asset purchases at £895BN.

At the same time, there are several opinions about UK’s currency reaction to the statement. The community is concerned about domestic and global Covid trends which will also determine the direction of the UK currency. The absence of consensus amongst analysts as to how the pound will react might be a signal of an upcoming high volatility period.

The number of new COVID-19 cases was decreasing over the past week. The average of daily new cases dropped to 424 from 702 on July 21. This fact can make consumers and businesses feel positive about the economy’s recovery and rejuvenate that strong economic growth seen earlier in the second quarter.

How to trade the Bank of England’s policy statement?

  • If the Bank sounds worried about the UK economic outlook and says monetary stimulus must stay for a longer period, the GBP will fall.
  • Otherwise, the UK’s currency will get a chance to strengthen.
