This week’s currency news 176

28 July, 2011


After the bustle of last week’s budget and Bank of England Minutes, this week is relatively quiet in terms of economic data likely to affect exchange rates. However, look out for UK GDP on Wednesday and Eurozone inflation figures on the same day, both of which could give some volatility to rates. In the USA, Friday’s key monthly employment figures often cause movement in USD rates.
