British Pound Dips Despite the Deal, Here's Why

Created 10/23/2019 at 10:13AM

JPY and CHF are the top G10 FX gainers today, up 0.11% and 0.03% vs the dollar while NOK and AUD are the top losers, down -0.21% and -0.18% vs the dollar. Sterling continues to fall from around $1.30 after the British parliament approved the withdrawal agreement deal while rejecting the tight schedule to get the deal through before the October 31st deadline. British Pound fell because Prime Minister Johnson had said to the parliament that if his deal timetable is rejected and delayed until January, he will not ratify the deal and will instead push for an election before Christmas. Up next is the central bank meetings due on Thursday in Sweden, Norway, and the eurozone.In the Asian equities space, the Nikkei 225 closed up 0.34% at 22,625.38, Hang Seng closed -0.82% at 26566.73 and Kospi ended -0.39% at 2080.62. The European equities were trading mixed with the FTSE 0.41% at 7242.12, DAX 0.01% at 12756.05, and CAC -0.41% at 5634.61. In the rates market, global yields were trading weaker; the US 10-year yield was trading at 1.738% and the Bund 10-year yield trading at -0.411%. In the energy space, the Brent (front month) is trading down (-0.99%) for the day at $59.11.
