    GBP EURO Exchange Rate Remains Close To Multi Month Lows

    Traders Eagerly Await Fed Interest Rate Decision on Thursday
    It was a fairly quiet day on financial markets yesterday as traders geared up for the main event later on in the week – the Federal Reserve’s long-awaited September interest rate decision. However, there is one piece of key British data due for release today and that’s August’s CPI report. The majority of market players expect the headline inflation rate to slow from 0.1% to 0.0%, which could soften demand for the Pound as it would likely be seen as a sign that inflation prospects are not strong enough to warrant ...
