Scheduled Announcements and Volatility Patterns: The Effects of Monetary Policy Committee Announcements on LIBOR and Short Sterling Futures and Options
Both the UK spot and futures markets in short term interest rates are found to react strongly to surprises in the scheduled announcements of the repo rate and RPI.
