Sterling to New Zealand Dollar value rockets on BoE hopes, will this trend continue? (Joseph Wright)

The GBP/NZD rate jumped dramatically today after some bullish comments from the Bank of England.

The governor of the BoE, Mark Carney adopted a far more bullish tone that the markets had anticipated, and mentioned that if the UK economy continues to grow at a higher rate than expected then the BoE may need to hike rates sooner and by stepper amounts than previously planned.

Carney also mentioned that the plans have changed over the past 3-months owing to improved economic performance and also a pick up in the global economy.

The effect on the GBP/NZD rate has amplified as at the same time good news for the Pound has surfaced, the RBNZ has opted to cut growth expectations and inflation forecasts. The combination of positive news for the Pound and negative news for the New Zealand Dollar pushed the rate as high as 1.9450 at one stage during today’s trading session.
