The sterling advanced against the dollar ahead of today's Bank of England meeting. Starting from January all members of the Monetary Policy Committee voted to keep the bank's benchmark rate at 0.5%. MPC members voted so in July too, however there are signs that policymakers are getting ready to raise rates. Economists expect two members of the committee to vote for a rate hike. Today the BOE will announce its interest rate decision and publish minutes of its meeting and updated economic forecasts at once for the first time.

The euro rose due to disappointing data on employment in private sector of the U.S. economy. Nevertheless the single currency is still under pressure ahead of U.S. payrolls data, which will be published tomorrow.
