Bank of England Governor weakens GBP/USD



Cable is among the worst performers in the currency market, weakened after Carney’s remarks during the presentation of the Inflation Report.



Kit Juckes, Global Head of Currency Strategy at Societe Generale noted that Carney prompted a rethink about the timing of UK rate hikes, sending sterling higher even after months of gains. “We have long been looking for a peak in a 1.65 - 1.70 range a breakthrough 1.72 would see a bigger and probably more sustained spike” said Juckes.
