Bank of England Rate Cut has only minor negative impact on the GB Pound

Video Analysis


An extremely dovish outcome from the Bank of England Meeting on Thursday, with a rate cut and additional quantitative easing.

Although technical supports were breached (1.3279, 1.3226, 1.3168, 1.3149), stronger foundations in the 1.3070/57/47 area have held.

This leaves bias in the very near term for a rebound, back maybe towards the upper end of the July-August range.

On an intermediate-term outlook, we see now a range theme into August.
