Sterling had an uninspiring day yesterday, with no UK economic data of note that might affect the markets. However, Bank of England Governor Mark Carney’s statement that a dramatic increase in interest rates was not expected by the central bank put a dampener on investors’ hopes for such a result, hindering sterling’s performance and holding back its shorter to medium term prospects. This – coupled with stronger data from the US – caused sterling’s drop to a three week low against the US dollar; sterling remained little changed overall against the euro. All is quiet on the key data front for the UK again today, with no major releases due; as such, sterling will have little to go on throughout the day.
