Current trend

The British currency is again rising against the US dollar amid expectations of an increase of the Bank of England’s interest rate for the first time in 10 years.

The meeting of the regulator will be held today at 14:00 (GMT+2), and the press conference of its head Mark Carney will start half an hour later. The decision to tighten monetary policy can be explained by the desire to suppress the growth of inflation in the country. According to the latest data, the inflation rate is currently around 3%, which is significantly higher than the target level of 2%.
