  • LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s pound strengthened against the dollar on Monday, as traders geared up for a Bank of England policy meeting later in the week that they expect will produce the first increase in interest rates in more than a decade.

  • BERLIN (Reuters) - German annual inflation slowed in October and remained below the European Central Bank's target, data showed on Monday, lending support to the bank's decision to withdraw monetary stimulus only slowly.
