What to Watch from the Bank of England’s Interest Rate Decision and Inflation Report.
This article is originally referred from Fortrade News.
The Monetary Policy Committee of the Bank of England (BoE) will announce its last interest rate decision and inflation report for the year on Thursday.
Chances of a rate hike are very slim, yet nonetheless it is clear the pound will likely remain volatile in the day before and the day after the policy meeting.
According to the consensus forecast, the Bank of England’s policy rate will remain the same as it was last month, at 25 basis points (0.25%). In the extremely unlikely event the BoE cuts rates to 0.00%, GBP/USD will almost for sure see a massive spike.

Minutes of the MPC meetings are published simultaneously with the decision and are followed by a widely-covered press conference.
The decisions made during this event influence the pound sterling’s exchange rates and shed light on the central bank’s monetary policy and stimulus measures.
