BoJ keeps rates on hold, UK CPI rises in August 2018

This week is one of those that keep investors and traders’ attention at the top level. As September is already reaching its end, the global markets are already warming up after the brief summer interruption. Last week, the European Central Bank (ECB) and the Bank of England (BoE) decided to keep their interest rates unchanged, a set of decisions that didn't surprise the experienced analysts. 

BoJ keeps interest rates unchanged

On Wednesday September 19th 2018 the Bank of Japan’s (BoJ) governing board convened to decide on interest rates. The BoJ’s policymakers announced that they would keep borrowing costs unchanged at -0.1%. The decision was widely anticipated by analysts. A report by Danske Bank published right after the meeting noted that “the BoJ also maintained its forward guidance and left its asset purchases unchanged. The BoJ has clearly shifted to autopilot mode after it announced some policy tweaks at the July meeting, and an unchanged signal from the BoJ today was fully expected. Hence, no reaction in the US Dollar/Japanese Yen rate or the Japanese fixed income market.” In their report, the Danske Bank’s economists stressed that they expect the BoJ to keep its current monetary policy intact until the end of 2019 at least. 

On Tuesday September 18th 2018, the Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso made some comments regarding the BoJ’s meeting. Taro Aso, speaking on Reuters, said that the BoJ is authorized to decide on monetary policy matters and that he believes that the central bank’s target is to pursue the appropriate policy to achieve price stability. 
Japan’s Finance Minister continued his comments on Reuters noting that he is fully aware that the BoJ’s 2% Consumer Price Index (CPI) inflation will take a long time to achieve. Taro Aso mentioned that any debate on BoJ’s exit strategy would probably cause market confusion which he would prefer to be avoided. Aso also urged the United States (US) and China to continue negotiations regarding trade tariffs to prevent the fallout on other countries.   
   
The Reuters media agency published the results of a poll conducted earlier in the week. The survey was associated with the BoJ’s monetary policy. The majority of economists polled said that the BoJ is unlikely to unwind the massive stimulus until 2020 or later. The poll showed that most of them expect the BOJ to scale back on stimulus measures, not add to them. The economists’ forecast showed that the core CPI inflation is likely to remain the same for the following fiscal year (until March 2020). They also stressed that the expected sales tax hike would likely hurt the economy and would push Japan’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) lower. 

UK Consumer Price Index inflation

On Wednesday September 19th 2018, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) published its August 2018 CPI inflation report. The report showed that the UK’s CPI inflation rose to 2.7%, on an annualised basis, from the 2.5% figure recorded in July 2018. On a monthly basis, the UK’s headline inflation ticked higher to 0.7%, 0.2% more than in July 2018. According to the ONS services, the core CPI inflation also jumped to 2.1% in August 2018 on a year-to-year basis from 1.8% in July 2018. 

The ONS accompanying report said that the rising transport, clothing and recreational goods prices drove the cost of living higher in August 2018 as the UK’s CPI inflation hit its highest level in the last six months. Right after the ONS CPI inflation report was published, the British Pound jumped to an eight-week high against the US Dollar as traders calculated that higher inflation would press the Bank of England (BoE) to raise borrowing costs earlier than previously thought.

BoE decides on interest rates

The Bank of England’s (BoE) governing board meeting scheduled for Thursday September 13th  2018 will attract the attention of investors and traders. The BoE’s meeting is important because its results will indicate how the central bank’s policymakers perceive the condition of the United Kingdom’s (UK) economy. Right after the meeting, the BoE will publish its monetary policy summary and will announce whether it’s going to lift interest rates or keep them on hold. 

Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) to convene

The majority of economists polled by Reuters on September 10th 2018 suggested that the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) will decide to keep the BoE’s benchmark interest rate unchanged at 0.75%. The MPC voted unanimously to raise borrowing costs by 0.25% on its August 2nd 2018 meeting because as its statement issued right after the end of the meeting said “recent data appeared to confirm that the dip in output in the first quarter of 2018 was temporary and that the labour market has continued to tighten and wage growth has firmed.” The MPC noted that an ongoing tightening of monetary policy over the forecast period will be appropriate to return the Consumer Price Index (CPI) inflation sustainably to the 2% target.  

Bank reports

A report by Nomura, which is one of the largest financial services group with headquarters in Asia, said that the BoE is not expected to change policy or reveal something new following its decision to raise interest rates in August 2018. Nomura’s analysts suggest that even though the economic data have softened a little relative to the market’s expectations, they doubt that it will have a material influence in the BoE’s September 2018 policy statement. They also add that they expect the decisions to keep rates and QE on hold to be unanimous.

Danske Bank’s economists seem to agree with their Nomura counterparts. In a report distributed to Danske Bank’s clients, it is said that “regarding the BoE, we expect a rather uneventful meeting and hence the British Pound will stay focused on Brexit negotiations, which bodes for volatility ahead of the key Tory Party conference in late September. Communication from both the EU and the UK has been remarkably positive and solution-seeking lately, which has helped reduce the Brexit risk premium somewhat.”

Analysts at Barclays suggest that the BoE’s governing board will reiterate its “gradual and limited” rhetoric in its post-meeting statement. “The BoE will meet next week for its September meeting, six weeks after hiking its bank rate to 0.75% in August 2018. Given little movement in data published since, we expect the MPC to maintain all monetary policy parameters unchanged (bank rates, asset purchase targets) by unanimous votes as it reiterates its gradual and limited rhetoric. While we see little scope for market-moving revelations, there will nonetheless be some focus on whether Governor Carney's mandate extension until 2020 is confirmed and how the Bank will deal with yearend Brexit uncertainty. Indeed, it looks increasingly likely that the Bank will have to update its forecast (next Inflation Report to be published on November 1st 2018) without confirmation of a Withdrawal Agreement.”

Trade the British Pound on STO

The British Pound against the Euro, the US Dollar against the British Pound and the British Pound against the Japanese Yen are just three of the major currency pairs that you can trade with on the STO platform. STO provides its clients with all the necessary educational material such as webinars to help them with preparing a suitable trading strategy.
