BOE Bailey: The jobs not done yet

BOE’s Bailey is chirping after the central bank kept rates unchanged:

  • The jobs not done yet
  • Not predicting what next bank rate move will be
  • We have got a big job to do yet.
  • There is no premature celebration here on inflation falling
  • MPC has not had any discussion about cutting bank rate

The vote from the BOE was 5 – 4. So there is no unanimity from the central bankers. Bailey’s comments support the close decision.

The GBPUSD is trading at 1.2275. The 61.8% retracement of the 2000 trading range comes in at 1.2314. The low price from the end of May came in at 1.2308. That area remains a key barometer for buyers and sellers going forward technically. Staying below keeps the sellers more control. Moving above and there should be some disappointment on the failed break.
