EU calls for further no-deal Brexit preparations

  • According to media, EU leaders at their summit next week are to call upon EU member states to increase preparations for the case that no Brexit deal is reached.
  • Despite progress being marked on a number of matters, the EU seems to be worried about the Irish border issue mainly.
  • A warning could also be expressed that should there be no Brexit deal, there will be no transition period.
  • On the UK side, PM May prepares to face a showdown in parliament regarding the House of Commons “meaningful vote” on Brexit.
  • Should there be further negative headlines we could see the pound weakening.

USD pushed by increasing treasury yields

  • As per analysts, the greenback strengthened yesterday, as treasury yields picked up from a three week low.
  • The strengthening was capped against the yen as trade tensions linger in the background, but was further fueled against the EUR.
  • ECB president Draghi’s comments about patience regarding the next rate hike date, strengthened EUR/USD bears.
  • Should the rise in the US treasury yields continue, we could see the USD strengthening even further.
