Chart of the day – GBPUSD (04.11.2021)

It will takes about:

November 4, 2021

Bank of England is scheduled to announce a monetary policy decision today at 12:00 pm GMT. There is no clear consensus for the meeting as economists polled by Bloomberg are almost 50-50 split on what to expect. Half of them expects BoE to leave rates unchanged while the other half expects a 15 basis points rate hike. Interest rate derivatives are pricing in a hike today. Whatever the decision will be, it surely won’t be unanimous. While BoE Governor Bailey has recently said that the Bank should act, he did explicitly say that it should act now. Lack of a rate hike today could cement the decision for December meeting. With high expectations for today’s meeting, lack of a rate hike could be negative for GBP. Rate hike should be more or less neutral.
A look at GBPUSD at H1 interval shows that the pair has been trading in a downtrend since October 20, 2021. The most recent upward impulse was halted near the upper limit of a local market geometry at 1.3700.

Recent lows near 1.3600 will become the next target for beas in case of a break below 1.3640.
