TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The British pound held firm in Asian trade on Thursday, after making its biggest gains in seven months the previous day, taking heart from the European Union’s offer of a post-Brexit ‘partnership’.

The pound surged as fears of a ‘hard Brexit’ eased after Michel Barnier signaled an accommodative stance towards London in ongoing talks.

Barnier said that the bloc was prepared to offer Britain a partnership, though no “single market a la carte”, which bolstered risk sentiment.
