EURGBP: Retreat to 0.8820 likely

FX:EURGBP   Euro Fx/British Pound
British consumer price inflation rose to 1.0% yoy from 0.6% yoy in August, the highest level since November 2014 and the biggest jump from one month to the next since June 2014. The market had expected a reading of 0.9%.
Core consumer price inflation , which strips out changes in the price of energy, food, alcohol and tobacco, rose to 1.5% from 1.3%, slightly above economists' expectations for 1.4%. Factory gate prices increased 1.2%, the biggest increase in three years, and slightly stronger than forecasts of a 1.1% annual increase. The Office for National Statistics also released figures for August house prices, which showed an 8.4% annual rise across the United Kingdom as a whole compared with 8.0% in July. Prices in London alone increased 12.1%.
September’s rise in inflation is only the start of a much broader increase, fuelled by the pound's near 20% plunge since June's vote to leave the European Union.
BoE Governor Mark Carney last week said the central bank could tolerate "a bit" of an overshoot against its inflation target, to help accommodate economic growth and employment . British government bond prices fell after the stronger than expected figures which will further dampen expectations that the Bank of England will cut interest rates again this year.
The central bank forecast in August that inflation would pick up sharply to hit its 2% target in around a year and then overshoot for the next couple of years, as sterling's big fall after Britain's vote to leave the EU pushes up the cost of imports. But the surge in inflation risks proving bigger, after sterling plunged to its lowest level on record against a basket of currencies last week, something which is likely to force the BoE to revise up its inflation forecasts next month.
The EUR/GBP             is falling gradually in recent days, but 0.8967 (61.8% fibo of September-October rise) is still a strong support level. Breaking below this level will open the way to a further fall into the area of 0.8845/0.8780. We stay short for 0.8860 in the short-term part of our portfolio, but the long-term outlook remains bullish .
