This afternoon Governor of the Bank of England Mark Carney will address the public in regards to monetary policy. The Bank of England last cut interest rates on the 4th August from 0.5% to 0.25%, The next meeting is on the 3rd of November and many economists are predicting a further cut potentially to 0%.

If this were to occur this could be the start of another major fall for sterling exchange rates. This is why this afternoons press conference is important as the Governor could hint to future policy changes which in turn would cause exchange rates to fluctuate due to the volatility.

Gross Domestic Product numbers are to be released at 9.30am Thursday. The Quarterly inflation figures are set to show a decline from 0.7% to 0.3%, which should in turn provide a spike for short term sterling buyers.
