Governor of the Bank of England Sir Mervyn King, the new Governor of the BoE Mark Carney spoke yesterday and once again the Pound actually rose following his comments. Those who have followed Sterling over the past few months will be well aware that King had a knack of causing Sterling weakness whenever he spoke however things appear to have now changed and Bank of England press conferences with Carney speaking do seem to result in Sterling strength. Today again we will be having a thin US session due to Black Friday holiday. Good Luck All.
