POUND STERLING OUTLOOK: GBP/USD PRICE ACTION IN FOCUS AS BANK OF ENGLAND RATE DECISION & INFLATION REPORT LOOM

  • GBP/USD price action hinges largely on high-impact event risk like the BoE decision on deck
  • The Pound Sterling could continue its bullish trend if the Bank of England defers NIRP remarks
  • US Dollar remains in the hot seat with the Greenback hovering around two-year lows

GBP/USD is gaining ground on Wednesday on the back of more broad-based US Dollar weakness. The USD has been getting decimated recently as the US Dollar Index tumbles to two-year lows. That said, spot GBP/USD price action looks ripe for potential currency volatility later as forex traders turn to the second half of the week.

The British Pound could react violently to any changes in language by the BoE Monetary Policy Committee regarding negative interest rate policy or the central bank’s current pace of quantitative easing. Weekly US jobless claims data, a leading labor market indicator, is due later on Thursday at 12:30 GMT. Employment figures released earlier in the week could set the tone for NFPs slated to cross market wires on Friday, August 07 at 12:30 GMT, and potentially weigh heavily on GBP/USD price action as well.
