GBPUSD hits 2-week high on BOE rate hike uncertainty

GBPUSD hit a 2-week high in today’s trading session, as markets reacted to comments from a policymaker from the BOE.

The Bank of England member Silvana Tenreyro was speaking regarding the potential for a near-term rate hike, due inflation concerns.

In her comments Tenreyro stated that, "Typically, for short-lived effects on inflation, such as the big rises in the prices of semiconductors or energy prices, it would be self-defeating to try to respond to their direct effects".

The comments from Tenreyro, who is seen as a dovish member of the bank, sent GBPUSD to an intraday high of 1.3734, its highest level since September 27th. 

London’s FTSE 100 rallied on the news, closing 0.92% higher.
