It units out the tone for this Sunday’s summit the place European leaders are positively anticipated to provide the inexperienced gentle to the deal barring any unexpected circumstances.
However the important thing factor to look forward shall be is that this deal sufficient to get via the UK parliament in a significant vote?
The draft textual content does not state a transparent finish date to the backstop because the transition interval is claimed to be probably prolonged for “one or two years”.

With that reasoning, I discover it powerful to argue a case for cable to rise above 1.3000 within the near-term until one thing modifications. It is nonetheless very a lot promoting the rallies at this level.
