Bank of England did take the markets by surprise this Thursday, so let's take a closer look. Pound/Yen started moving higher after 11 o'clock, and it is the Mover of the Day with a gain of 1.15%. The latest Bank of England meeting minutes did strike a remarkably hawkish tone as 3 out of 8 policy makers voted on a rate hike; that alone has sent the Pound all the way to the top, despite a... Еще disappointing slip in UK retail sales. The Buck is trading just a fraction lower, bolstered by several pieces of strong data such as jobless claims and state manufacturing indices; moreover, it's point 23% up from the Aussie. Moving point 2% South, we get to another commodity currency, the Loonie. The latest Swiss National Bank policy statement was in line with expectations, and Swissie is point 16% up from the Euro. Kiwi is the most bearish of commodity currency, but it nevertheless is point 38% up from the Yen, which is the most bearish major ahead of the upcoming Bank of Japan policy statement. And here's how things look in the long-term charts. Canada/Swiss Franc has gained 2.57% over a week, and it's the most bullish pair, whereas Pound/Canada tops the bearish chart with a loss of 3.15%. New Zealand/Dollar tops the monthly bulls table, standing 4.31% in the green. Pound/New Zealand has lost 5.4% over the same period, and it's the most bearish instrument.
