G8 summit

Could be a G8 reaction to markets

G8 summit leaders enjoyed their weekend in a retreat, unconference with very mixed reaction from markets. The open was spent violently going nowhere as cable is still bouncing around 1.58. No momentum or conviction on either side. Sounds like opposing G8 stances, doesn’t it. As the news week gets underway a huge drop in UK inflation that has hit its lowest levels in over a year. Less inflation leaves the door open for more QE at a time where economic data has not been supporting the hawks at the BoE. The market looks ahead to the BoE minutes release tomorrow to see if recent hawks have new dovish feathers.
