Here are the major questions for markets as a new trading week begins. Will markets listen to hawkish talk from the Bank of England? The first UK interest rate rise in a decade is not a “one and done” move, the BoE insists, but that is precisely how the market viewed it. The pound fell… This content is for Standard & Premium Digital Subscribers only.Log In Subscribe

A rough week for the UK prime minister has been reflected in the pound, which has dropped more than 2 per cent against the dollar, intensifying the divergence between the currency and the bond market. Bank of England midyear hawkishness has seen the pound broadly tracking two-year gilt yields. But the correlation is breaking down — investors are simultaneously selling sterling and gilts.
The pound slumped to the lowest level in 30 years on Friday, tumbling as much as 13 per cent, as investors took fright at Britain’s shock decision to leave the EU. In a morning of financial and political turmoil, sterling sank as low as $1.3224 and racked up signifciant declines against the euro and the yen. Sterling had staged a sharp rally in the run-up to polling day, underlining the misplaced confidence that the British public would vote to stay.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
