According to Jamie Coleman from FXBeat, "PMIs reinforce notion that BOE and Fed will move years before the rest." He affirms that "being long dollars and pounds against the euro is probably the best way to play for the foreseeable future."



"Markets are pricing in a hike from the BOE as soon as December while the Fed is likely to hang on until mid-2015 unless growth begins to accelerate notably in the US," he concludes.
