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.

Asian trading had delivered an instant hit and by the time European trading settled, the pound was down 0.4% to $1.2920. It had closed last week at just below $1.30 having soared 6.5% since British Prime Minister Boris Johnson struck a new EU divorce deal on Oct. 10.
