Much of the attention on monetary policy speculation has focused on the Fed Taper or BoJ stimulus upgrade. But speculation may be more mature for the BoE and pound. Where the central bank was expected to respond to an impending triple-dip recession with more stimulus in early 2013, the market is now trying to determine when the first hike will come...and the expectations are ambitious. Given the aggressive, hawkish lean by the market; there may not be much room for traders to entertain doubt without seeing the pound correct sharply. We discuss this balance and important, upcoming data (inflation, employment) data in today's Strategy Video.
