GBP/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: BoE Official Bank Rate and 235 pips price movement
2016-07-14 11:00 GMT | [GBP - Official Bank Rate]
if actual > forecast (or previous one) = good for currency (for GBP in our case)
[GBP - Official Bank Rate] = Interest rate at which the BOE lends to financial institutions overnight.
"The Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) sets
monetary policy to meet the 2% inflation target and in a way that helps
to sustain growth and employment. At
its meeting ending on 13 July 2016, the MPC voted by a majority of 8-1
to maintain Bank Rate at 0.5%, with one member voting for a cut in Bank
Rate to 0.25%. The
Committee voted unanimously to maintain the stock of purchased assets
financed by the issuance of central bank reserves at £375 billion. Committee
members made initial assessments of the impact of the vote to leave the
European Union on demand, supply and the exchange rate. In
the absence of a further worsening in the trade-off between supporting
growth and returning inflation to target on a sustainable basis, most
members of the Committee expect monetary policy to be loosened in
August. The precise size and nature of any stimulatory measures will be determined during the August forecast and Inflation Report round."

GBP/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: Monetary Policy Committee Member Weale Speaks and and 47 pips price movement
2016-07-18 08:15 GMT | [GBP - MPC Member Weale Speaks]
[GBP - MPC Member Weale Speaks] = The speech about the implications of Brexit for monetary policy at the Resolution Foundation, in London.
In his final speech as a member of the Monetary Policy Committee, Martin Weale outlined his analysis of the economic and financial market impact of the referendum vote and its implications for monetary policy. Martin noted that the most prominent effect of the referendum result had been on the exchange rate, which has fallen sharply. Martin stated that one reason this had happened was as a consequence of expected lower future productivity. He explained that, if expectations of a lower path for GDP are assumed to arise from a lower path for productivity, then it follows that real wages should also be weaker. To the extent that this is delivered through more inflation , then the exchange rate will have to be lower to offset the international effects of this. In other words, as Martin put it: "The relative fall in GDP resulting from Brexit might then be thought to set an upper limit to the decline in the exchange rate which would result from Brexit."However, Martin also noted there were good reasons for thinking that the impact on the exchange rate will be larger than implied by the lower path for GDP. He said: "To the extent that the productivity effects work through reduced competition, then those are likely to be in the sectors of the economy most exposed to foreign competition - i.e. in the sectors of the economy producing internationally traded goods. If, say, half of our economic activity produces internationally tradable output and the productivity effect were actually limited to the tradeable sector, then the overall loss in productivity there would be twice as large in the economy as a whole. And, since the exchange rate needs to ensure that our internationally tradeable goods are competitive, the adjustment to the real exchange rate would need to be twice as large as if the loss were spread evenly across the economy."Turning to the current policy decision, Martin noted that there remained a very high degree of uncertainty around the implications of leaving the EU. Uncertainty itself would suggest waiting for firmer evidence of what those implications might be. However, Martin does believe the short-term impact on demand will be more severe than that on supply, dampening inflation. "So is there a case for a stitch in time?"Martin argued, however, that the effects of weaker demand needed to be traded off against the implications of the lower exchange rate for inflation; the Committee might need to address that even if it gave substantial weight to output movements.

Why Is This Event Important:
"With the U.K. preparing to depart from the European Union (EU), there’s
growing speculation the BoE will reestablish its easing cycle at the
next interest-rate decision on August 4, but we may see another split
decision to retain the current policy as the marked depreciation in the
British Pound raises the risk of overshooting the 2% target for

If we look at the daily chart so the price is contuning to be ranging below 100 SMA/200 SMA reversal area: the price is on ranging within 1.3480 resistance and 1.2794 support levels.
If the price breaks 1.3480 resistance to above on daily close bar so the local uptrend as the bear market rally within the primary bearish market condition will be started.If the daily price breaks 1.2794 support level to below on close bar so the primary bearish trend will be continuing.If not so the price will be on bearish ranging within the levels.
This is also the ranging bearish market condition in the medium-term situation (weekly chart). And the bearish continuation level is 1.2794 for example.
In the long-term situation in case of monthly price: the price is on ranging bearish market condition as well with the same bearish continuation as 1.2794. The 100 SMA/200 SMA is located too far from the market price for any possible bullish reversal in the current and the next year for example. Thus, this pair will be on bearish market condition for whole this year and next year just for sure.
