Sterling slipped away a little on Friday, breaking through 1.51 and 1.16 against the US dollar and euro respectively. This week is a lot livelier on the news front than last with influential releases coming most days. Tomorrow sees annual CPI figures as well as other inflation data. On Wednesday markets get further insight into how the new Governor of the Bank of England will run his bank with the release of the minutes from the first meeting under his charge. On Thursday we have Retail sales figures, a key indication of consumer spending and growth in the country, markets will keep a keen eye on the release though the forecasts are not overly positive. Call your trader this week for the very latest news, and up to the second rates for sterling.

The euro stayed broadly flat through Friday’s trading in spite of somewhat disappointing manufacturing production figures. The major events this week are an influential German economic sentiment survey released tomorrow morning which is expected to show increased optimism. A bond auction on Thursday will show how much it costs the Spanish government to borrow money , but little else is scheduled to be released.
