Latest updates London Market Reports
Pound spikes after data and BoE comments
The pound jumped against the dollar following the UK's latest employment data and comments from the Bank of England.
At one stage it hit 1.3166. That was up more than a cent from the lowpoint of today's trading.
The Bank of England said that it saw "no clear evidence" that a sharp slowdown was underway after the UK's vote to leave the European Union.
Up and down for the pound
The pound spiked after those inflation figures, reaching $1.3215, before slipping back.
London Capital Group points out that inflation remains well below the Bank of England's 2% target, which is weighing on the pound. Also, the prospect of an interest rate cut in August is depressing sterling.
