Another rise in February would surprise me, but wouldn't shock me anymore.

Lets bet what CPI data is first (data comes out on Tuesday).

That will set off another bearish day!

Betfair odds actually suggest about 30% chance of a rise in February, which is a lot higher than the January odds were. Also, short sterling futures took a jump today and are suggesting another rise very soon.

Looks like this rise has given the message that there are more to come. Could well be as soon as next month! Edited by nic

It is possible

I think Merv would actually be happy if this happened as it would untie his hands

I think that the longer term inflation outlook is starting to look much worse than previous which has frightened them even more

According to Stuart Law,managing director of property investent specialist Assetz (!)

"We expect that wage inflation will be kept under control at 4% or less, while inflation is expected to drop back down to 2% by the end of the year. This, combined wiht falling energy pries, confirms that the eonomy is on an even keel and we are likely to the the Bank [b]holding or lowering rates in the coming months[/b]"

VI? lol!

If only the public sector looked at CPI , but they don't they use RPI to bargain with .RPI is already at 3.9% and should go higher as it includes IR's , looks like the spiral could begin here as I can't see the unions settling for 2% which is what Gordo is after.
