    Janet Yellen Speaks Before Congress !!!

    What she says will be very important. She must not spook the market. She must say something about the state of the economy ie Good/OK/Not OK/Bad. She must say something about the taper. She will need to be specific in order to appease congress but yet remain open to whatever comes. She will be walking a very narrow tight-rope.

    There will be significant momentum on the markets this afternoo. Janet Yellen talk will shape the markets not onlyfor today but for next few days too! It will be an important driver for both forex and stock markets. I will closely watch the presentation and will trade according to the market sentiment few minutes after the beginning. This kind of trades are only discretionary and very short term 5 to 15 minutes expiration. Only for experienced traders as abrupt change in the market direction is highly possible.

    The Bank of England has updated its guidelines for future interest rates. The Bank noted that it will not raise prices until the spare capacity in the economy of Great Britain do not fully filled. The bank has said it will consider a wider range of indicators: unemployment, wages, productivity and business research, when it decided to raise prices.

    Governor Carney said that the UK economic recovery took hold, but warned that it is not balanced and sustainable. He added that Britain's unemployment rate fell more rapidly than the Bank had expected, and that will be the spring down to the limit of 7%. During the last six months, since the future guidelines implemented, Britain's unemployment rate fell from 7.8% to 7.1%.

    Very strong number with unemployment numbers surprise, BOE still cautious and expect spring back.
    With their economy recovering strongly, I think Poundsterling will keep the uptrend strong.
