There is always event risk on the docket and some of it is high level. However, not many releases can be expected to generate volatility regardless of their outcome. The upcoming Bank of England (BoE) Quarterly Inflation Report is one of those few. For the British Pound, the top market-moving fundamental theme is interest rate expectations. Yet, there are few opportunities for speculators to find a definitive update on where the central bank will head with monetary policy going forward. The Quarterly report affords that opportunity, and the sudden realignment rarely fails for immediate market impact and it frequently revives or turns established trends. So what do we expect with this update? What Pound pairs are best positioned for different outcomes? We focus on this event risk in today's Strategy Video.
