Unemployment steady but more QE on the cards
20 June 2012

This morning's UK data provided a mixed bag for the Pound - the bad news is that the Bank of England only narrowly decided not to introduce more Quantitative Easing this month, voting 5-4 to keep asset purchases on hold. With inflation falling unexpectedly, there is now an increased likelihood that QE will be extended in July, which is likely to have negative consequences on the value of the Pound.

Unemployment news was a little more positive, with the rate steady at 8.2%. The number of benefit claimants posted a surprise rise of 8,100, but the wider ILO measure showed that 51,000 fewer people were without jobs. Hardly exciting news for the UK economy, and this morning due to these releases, sterling has fallen slightly across the board.
