BOE’s Pill: The persistent parts of inflation are falling

  • Bank rate can be cut when there is sufficient evidence of a downward path in inflation persistence
  • Focusing just on the next BOE meeting is a little ill advised
  • We must focus on the underlying components of inflation
  • But also on the persistent components, not just the headline rate

The comments are pretty much a follow up to the ones we saw from Bailey yesterday. It’s been a pretty boring session for sterling, even with the beats in the UK GDP data earlier. Cable is flat at 1.2525 on the day currently.
