Judgement Day Part 1 for Cable begins at 12: OO P.M GMT with the following events

  • BOE Inflation Report
  • MPC Official Bank Rate Votes
  • Monetary Policy Summary
  • Official Bank Rate
  • Asset Purchase Facility
  • MPC Asset Purchase Facility Votes

Judgement Day Part 2 Judgement Day Part 2 for Cable begins at 12:30 P.M GMT with the Speech from Mark Carney

After all the above Fundamental Events and the results have been announced Mark Carney will be holding a press conference along with other MPC Members do discuss the interest rates, inflation report and give some clues regarding future monetary policy. Brexit seems to be on the top of the agenda of the Decision Makers at the present moment in time and with variances still about soft Brexit and hard Brexit and re-voting it is sending more mixed signals than the weather in the up.

What to watch out for in the press conference:

  1. Is a no change in the MPC Voting and it remains at 3-0-5
  2. If there is a mention of Gradual Interest Rate hikes

If this the above happens then the Platinum Analysts expect that cable could actually get to 1.3475 very Quickly. This would clearly mean that we should be looking at buying Cable on any dips moving forward.

If we have a vice-versa scenario then we can see cable moving back towards the 1.2800 level

Platinum Analysts Expectations:

We do not see any increase in interest rates in the near term as the economy is just very fragile and the mixed results have clearly shown this over the last few months with all the indecision that the UK is currently facing.

Trade safe and remember the markets are always going to be ready to profit from. Be patient and calm.
