Week ahead: Focus on MPC and US Jobs report

Fri, 28th Jul 2017 09:49


(ShareCast News) - All eyes in the coming week will be on Bank's policy decision on Thursday and accompanying Inflation Report.

On Thursday, rate-setters on the Monetary Policy Committee will get a chance to explain their thinking as to the current risks facing the British economy.

The latest IR comes at a key moment in time, with markets having at one point recently begun to price-in the possibility of a near-term hike in Bank Rate.

However, rate hike expectations were tempered by the release of CPI data on 18 July showing that the rate of increase in the cost of living in the UK slowed had to a 2.6% year-on-year pace in June, down from 2.9% in May - contrary to expectations.

Hence, an interest rate increase at this next meeting is now seen as considerably less likely.

Acting as a backdrop, overseas the Federal Reserve also appears - at least moderately - to have eased its tightening bias, while the European Central Bank continues to insist on the need for patience and a very gradualist approach.

Beyond the MPC, the spotlight will be on Friday's US non-farm payrolls numbers, arguably the most important bit of data for global capital markets published each month.
