Forex Flash: UK economy could benefit from fall in GBP – ANZ

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The UK budget at best is neutral for the GBP, however the focus on monetary activism implies further, near-term easing in monetary policy.

With inflation expectations broadly stable, sterling's weakness should not be an obstacle to further easing.
