Forex: EUR/GBP holds at 0.8554 (31/01/2013 low)

The EUR/GBP rallied to as high as 0.8684 during the London morning after the BoE Quarterly Inflation Report and BoE Governor Mervyn King's speech. The cross has been wandering around 0.8654 most recently, +0.77% on the day.

The BoE statement said the UK GDP will stay below pre-crisis level until 2015 and CPI should stay above target for most of the next three years. BoE Governor King believes the UK is set for a less normal recovery and that further monetary stiimulus might only boost market optimism, and not economic growth.
