Cable shoots higher after the BOE decision. About 40% of those surveyed expected the bank to boost its QE program after last meeting's minutes and some leading talk from Governor King, but it's Mark Carney's bank now - even if he doesn't start his job until July. Sterling (FXB) +0.3% to $1.5057.

  • "Many forex traders and commentators also use the traditional term "Cable" to refer to the GBP/USD currency pair. This nickname arose historically from the Trans-Atlantic telegraph cable that was used to transmit the value of that pair's exchange rate from Britain to the United States."
