TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The British pound was frail on Tuesday after the departure of two key euroskeptic ministers raised worries about a “hard Brexit” while the yen retreated against the dollar as investors bid up riskier assets.

Sterling stood at $1.3248, having fallen to as low as $1.3189 on Monday, after Prime Minister Theresa May’s foreign minister and Brexit negotiator quit in protest at her plans to keep close trade ties with the European Union.

The currency regained some ground after several Conservative lawmakers said May is likely safe from a leadership challenge despite the resignation of Boris Johnson and Brexit minister David Davis.
