A Day Of Speeches - MI250324

A relatively quiet day for scheduled news sees a number of key speeches from global central banks.

The President of the ECB, Christine Lagarde, kicks things off.

Depending on how hawkish or dovish the commentary is, these speeches may be the only thing moving rates today.

A hawkish stance indicates an expectation of base rates going up and vice versa for dovish.

Business news continues with the political slant. The Chancellor, Jeremy Hunt, has pledged that the triple lock state pension will be kept in place if the Tories win the general election.
