Future interest rate reductions by the Bank of England are also possible.

Currently, the Bank of England is a "dark horse." It is difficult to predict how much longer the British regulator will raise its rate, even though it is doing so slower than the Fed and the ECB. It decided to increase the rate by 75 basis points at the most recent meeting, a record increase over the previous 12 to 13 years and the first increase during the current tightening monetary policy cycle. Although the Bank of England rate has already increased to 3%, inflation in the UK is still rising, and there are currently no signs that it will slow down. One could anticipate at least a slight slowdown in the consumer price index with such a rate value, but keep in mind that there is a "time lag" that could take up to 3–4 months for the economy to fully adjust to the most recent (and subsequent) PEPP tightenings.

Inflation in the UK may therefore start to slow down soon, but I believe it will only be able to disappear at a 3% rate, even below the 10% threshold. It increased to 11.1% in October, and Andrew Bailey recently predicted that the peak value might reach 13% or 15%. The fact that British inflation has yet to display any discernible slowdown that would be considered the start of a fall is a major disadvantage. Based on this, it can be assumed that the Bank of England's relatively high rate is already impacting the economy and inflation. However, no one can say with certainty how significant this impact is. There may be an impact, but it is probably insignificant in light of the factors that drive monthly price increases. A 3% rate may only stop prices from increasing even more quickly. Since I cannot respond, it is too early to discuss the Bank of England's final interest rate.

In light of the current situation, the regulator should increase the rate by 75 basis points at least twice more, bringing it to 4.5%. After that, he can follow the Fed's lead and raise the rate gradually while he waits for inflation to respond to three or four rounds of extremely strict PEPP tightening. However, given the current state of the British economy, analysts now have serious doubts about the Bank of England's ability to take such actions. According to Andrew Bailey, the recession "has already begun" and at the same time "has just begun" due to the most recent GDP report for the third quarter showing a contraction. It can last for up to two years (assuming no further economic shocks), and it is difficult to predict how much the British GDP will decline due to high rates.

According to Dave Ramsden, the deputy governor of the Bank of England, it is imperative to respond to the state of the British economy. If things continue to go poorly, it will be prudent to lower the rate to prevent making the already challenging financial situation for households even worse. The objective of bringing inflation back to 2% remains the same, but the Bank of England will need to monitor economic expansion.

The construction of a new downward trend segment is predicated on the wave pattern of the pound/dollar instrument. I cannot suggest purchasing the instrument immediately because the wave marking already permits the development of a downward trend section. Sales are more accurate now that the targets are close to the 200.0% Fibonacci level.
