GBP/USD: Review of 20.11.14

20 November, 2014

Current trend

At yesterday’s trading session the price of GBP/USD has slightly rose. At the end of the trading day the British currency gained over 60 points against the USD. The pair GBP/USD was supported by the outcome of yesterday’s meeting of the Bank of England, where it was decided to leave interest rate at the previous level, due to low inflation rate, which showed growth of only 1.3% in October versus 2%, which is the target set by the Bank of England. The main positive detail in the outcome of the meeting was the fact that not all 9 regulators of the Bank of England unanimously approved the decision to keep interest rate at the existing level. Two regulators voted for the rise in the interest rate in November. A range of opinions among those, who voted in favor of maintaining existing level of interest rate, was also wide. Today, the price of GBP/USD has corrected after yesterday’s rise and is trading in the sideways range. Among interesting fundamental news will be UK retail sales data for October (12:30 GMT+2), and the US inflation data (16:30 GMT+3).
