TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
Sterling fell as much as 0.5% after Britain’s parliament delayed a crucial vote on the government’s new Brexit plan, while the dollar, which is on course for its worst month since January 2018, clawed higher.
It was little surprise to see sterling backing off 5-month highs on Monday after “super-Saturday” failed to live up to its billing, ensuring more Brexit drama to come.
