UK Inflation Data May Support BoE Rate Hike Timetable | Webinar

UK Inflation Data May Support BoE Rate Hike Timetable | Webinar

Nick Cawley, Strategist

The Bank of England upgraded growth forecasts last week and downgraded inflation forecasts – both marginally – and suggested that rate hikes may happen earlier than currently expected. An above forecast headline UK inflation print for January – 2.9% expected - would add credence to governor Mark Carney’s comments and help GBP regain some of its recent losses.

Other trading topics covered include –

  • A return to 3% headline inflation would support GBP and bring a UK rate increase in May into focus.
  • GBP and the FTSE broke their previous inverse correlation when markets collapsed last week. Will this relationship rekindle?
  • Brexit negotiations are not going well and GBP may suffer if nothing is settled ahead of the EU Summit Meeting on March 22-23.
