EUR/GBP Analysis Forecast, May 14, 2015 – Forecast

Analysis and Recommendations (EUR/GBP Forecast):

The EUR/GBP dipped 29 points to trade at 0.7128 as the pound soared after the Bank of England inflation report today. UK jobs data was a bit disappointing but not enough to upset markets and this was offset by Mark Carney’s reduction in growth forecasts. Average weekly wages excluding bonuses rose by an inflation-busting 2.2 per cent in March, official figures published this morning showed – a welcome relief for consumers.

Meanwhile, unemployment fell to another post-financial crisis low of 5.5 per cent (that’s the best figure since July 2008), while the number of vacancies rose to 733,000 between February and April, up 95,000 from the same period last year. The number of people classifying themselves as “unemployed” fell by 35,000.

The Eurozone economy grew at a faster rate than the UK’s during the first quarter of this year, topping off a stream of recent data suggesting the bloc is emerging from a long period of stagnation.

Official statistics agency Eurostat said GDP rose 0.4 per cent across the euro area, towards the bottom of analyst estimates, but up from 0.3 per cent in the last quarter of 2014.
