What to Watch from the Bank of England’s Interest Rate Decision and Inflation Report

December 14, 2016

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.
