“GBP is essentially flat as the BoE left all policy measures on hold, with interest rates at 0.5%. Next week’s Inflation Report (August 13th) will provide clarity on how the BoE’s views are unfolding and is a major hurdle for GBP, followed by the release of today’s minutes on August 20th”.



“GBP/USD short‐term technicals: bearish ‐ however the test down to 1.6786 that we expected is proving a challenge with the European session warning of building uncertainty over the outlook for GBP”.
