BoE Monetary Policy Decision Due Today
The Bank of England monetary policy decision is due to be released today at 1200GMT. Governor Bailey’s press conference will follow at 1230GMT. The consensus is that rates will be left unchanged at 0.1%, however a change in BoE tone would move the pound. If the BoE is surprisingly hawkish it’d be expected to be bullish for the GBP.
