What Carney’s comment meant?

The cross is still hesitating just below 0.80 area, as the recent Carney comments took the market by surprise. The investors still cannot believe their ears and prefer to wait for the MPC minutes in order to see if there is any divergence in views. The BOE chairman could give rather aggressive comments in order to prepare the market for more surprises, and if the surprises are positive enough, we may see the decisive move lower with initial target at 0.7963.
