British Pound Muted After Better Than Expected Jobless Claims

British Pound Muted After Better Than Expected Jobless Claims

Cecilia Sanchez-Corona,

Talking Points:

  • UK Jobless Claims fell more than estimated. Unemployment rate stood at 7.7%
  • Little reaction from the British Pound
  • Data Unlikely to drive hawkish shift in BoE outlook

UK Jobless Claims fell more than economists expected in September, down 41, 700 from the prior monthversus estimates calling fora -25,000drawdownpenciled in ahead of the release. Augusts reading was revised higher to show a -41,600 drop, a better result than the -35,600 outcome originally reported.

The British Pound spiked briefly higher against the US Dollar following the release but gains were short-lived considering the reports limited implications for near-term monetary policy.The Bank of England has vowed to maintain the interest rate at the current low level of 0.50 percent until the unemployment rate falls to a threshold of 7.0 percent. Todays figures showed this critical threshold held at 7.7 percent while overall UK economic data has increasingly underperformed relative to expectations (according to data from Citigroup) over recent months. That leaves little scope for a hawkish shift in BOE policy bets
