Sterling weakens after BoE minutes suggest no hurry to tighten policy LONDON: Sterling retreated from a two-week high against the dollar after minutes on Thursday from a meeting of the Bank of England's rate-setting committee suggested policymakers were in no hurry to raise interest rates. The nine-member Monetary Policy Committee voted 8-1 to keep rates at a record-low 0.5 percent month, as expected, and most saw a relatively soft outlook for inflation. That dashed expectations amongst some investors who hoped the BoE would send a message it was not comfortable with their pricing on when rates would start to rise. Investors are currently factoring in the chance of the first rate hike in the last quarter of 2016. "The minutes took a dovish tone, giving the impression that renewed concerns were on the table for inflation forecasts," said Alex Lydall, senior currency trader at Foenix Partners, a firm which offers hedging solutions to UK companies. Sterling fell to $1.5270, down 0.3 ...

Sterling falls after UK services survey disappoints LONDON: Sterling sank against both the dollar and the euro on Monday after a monthly survey of the services sector crushed any remaining market expectations that the Bank of England is likely to raise interest rates any time soon. The 53.3 point reading on the index of purchasing managers in a sector that dominates British economic output was the lowest since May 2013, and sharply below analysts' forecasts and the previous month's figures. The pound ...
Dollar weaker as rate increase expectations pushed back LONDON: The dollar nursed losses on Monday, falling around 0.5 percent against the euro and slipping against a basket of currencies, after a weak US jobs report drove traders to push back expectations of a Federal Reserve rate hike to early 2016.

Sterling rate swaps push first BoE hike expectations to end-2016 LONDON: Sterling short-term interest rate swap markets pushed back chances of a first rate rise by the Bank of England to late 2016, after a weaker-than-expected US jobs report saw investors cut the odds of a Federal Reserve hike by the end of 2015. An improving British labour market has raised expectations the BoE will be among the first major central banks to raise interest rates, although it is seen unlikely to act before the ...
