Bank of England officials spoke of a drop to UK inflation and the likelihood of just one more hike to come in September during the week devaluing the Pound (GBP) from 0.5065 (1.9750) to 0.5130 (1.9490) into Friday trading.

Australian GDP was also steady at 0.4% in the second quarter in line with estimates bringing back AUD buyers. Next week’s Aussie employment release is our focus, a handy barometer of inflation predictions.
