As in the title – looking at the economic calendar we will notice several important GBP-related items. Already on Wednesday we will know the rate of inflation in the UK, and on Thursday the Bank of England will inform us about interest rates and what monetary policy it plans to pursue in the coming months. Interestingly, it is also Friday that is packed with data from the UK – we will learn the Gfk consumer confidence index and results from the retail market.

Undoubtedly, the GBP will react to these data and it is difficult to predict anything at this point. The market expects an interest rate hike of another 0.25% to 4.75%. The relationship between the size of inflation and % rates is important. Inflation is expected to fall to 8.5%. But what if it doesn’t and turns out to be higher than expected? This could force the BoE to raise rates higher and the pound could gain in value. At the last BoE meeting, of the 7 policymakers, 2 voted to leave rates unchanged and 5 voted for a hike. Will Thursday bring a change in this ratio?
