Pound will have to give back all the gains

Today is the day of the BOE and the ECB meetings, but nobody expects anything from the former. The MPC already said everything it wanted without unnecessary hinting – “we are not going to reduce stimulus right now, and even if we see unemployment rate close to 7%, we will just make correction to our targets within forward guidance”. This notion may weaken the positions of GBP for today, especially after yesterday’s rally, and especially if Draghi and Co consider to keep ">EUR-positive silence today.
