BOE Preview: What to expect of GBP/USD?

It’s BOE ‘Super Thursday’ today, the first one for 2017, with markets unanimously expecting that the BOE will make no change to its monetary policy setting. The British central bank is expected to maintain its refi rate at a historic low of 0.25% and asset purchase target at GBP 435 bn. In accompaniment to the BOE policy decision, we will also have its minutes, which is expected to offer no new surprises and hence, the main risk event for the pound is expected to be the BOE Quarterly Inflation Report (QIR).

Last Interest Rate change from the Bank of England was on August 4th 2016. At the same time, the BOE authorised the purchase of up to £10 billion of UK corporate bonds; and an expansion of the asset purchase scheme for UK government bonds of £60 billion, taking the total stock of these asset purchases to £435 billion.
