    UK Interest Rate Statement comes out once per month at 7:00 am New York Time.

    When interest rate of a country is higher, it attracts investors to buy its currency, which increases the value of the currency versus other currencies.

    So, when interest rate is unexpectedly hiked, traders tend to speculatively buy Great British Pounds, so GBP/USD tends to go up. When interest rate is unexpectedly cut, traders tend to speculatively sell Great British Pounds, so GBP/USD tends to go down. Sometimes economists expect that UK will raise its interest rate, but they keep it unchanged. In such case traders will also sell Great British Pounds, and GBP/USD will probably go down. Or if it's expected that UK will cut its rate, but they keep it unchanged, traders will buy Great British Pounds, so GBP/USD will probably go up.

    I highly recommend you see the history of this indicator and charts of how it affected GBP/USD and other currencies. You can do that by following this link: Forex News Trading | Details and History for GBP Interest Rate Statement
