UK Inflation Falls; GBP Now Eyes Wages Data and Bank of England

UK Inflation Falls; GBP Now Eyes Wages Data and Bank of England

Nick Cawley, Strategist

The Traits of Successful Traders and how to find the Number One Mistake Traders Make are just two of the most widely read reports in ourFree Trading Guides.

UK Inflation Falls, Wages Data Next

UK inflation fell more than expected in February – to 2.7% y/y from 3.0% in January and against expectations of 2.8% - as a stronger British Pound and weaker energy prices crimped price rises. Sterling fell against the USD but further moves are expected to be limited with both the Bank of England and the US Fed announcing their latest monetary policy reports over the next two days. Also, UK wages data is released on Wednesday and an improvement in average earnings could see the negative real wage gap consigned to the bin.

Bank of England Policy Announcement

On Thursday the Bank of England is expected to leave all monetary policy settings unchanged but today’s better-than-expected inflation data, and tomorrow’s expected rise in average wages, will give the governor more scope to hint of further rate rises. The market has already priced-in a 0.25% rise in May, and a combination of stronger UK data and the recent agreement of a Brexit transition period could see governor Carney hint towards a second UK rate rise in November.
