some announcements that may impact the markets this week

Between 7th July and 12th July Friday


The GBP came under sustained pressure as at the time of writing as the Bank of England left rates on hold and its asset-purchase target unchanged.

This was the first announcement from the Bank since Mark Carney took the reins on July 1st and he becomes the first foreigner to run the Bank of England.

FOMC Minutes

On Wednesday it will be worth paying attention to the FOMC minutes at 18:00 GMT.  FOMC is the Federal Open Market Committee which organises eight meetings a year to review economic and financial conditions in the USA. Minutes are released by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve and provide a clear guide to future interest rate policy.


Happy trading!
