Can the GBP rise on the BOE policy?

Can the GBP rise on the BOE policy?

Information is not investment advice

BOE Governor Bailey speaks on Thursday at 17:00 MT time.

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

The Bank of England has been keeping the rate steady 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 until now. Nevertheless, the domestic economic layout in the UK remains considerably dire. Coupled with the likelihood of a no-deal Brexit, the coming weeks promise to be one of the toughest challenges for the GBP. We will be looking into the message provided by the Bank of England about the economic outlook and see if these manage to improve the position of the GBP.

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