BOE Greene:Latest pay data shows pretty high wage growth,but moving in the right direction

BOE’s Greene is on the wires saying:

  • latest patent data shows pretty high wage growth, though moving in the right direction.
  • Latest inflation data surprised on the upside little
  • Wage growth in services price inflation are not consistent with this sustainable return to 2% inflation.
  • UK labor market loosening, but still remains pretty tight. We expect inflation to return to target in coming months, but don’t expect it to stay there.
  • I don’t think a rate cut is imminent.
