Firmer Dollar and Brexit Fears Push Sterling Under $1.27
Tuesday, 21 May 2019 16:45 WIB | CURRENCIES |DOLLARPoundsterling

Sterling fell below $1.27 for the first time since mid-January, battered by dollar strength and expectations that Prime Minister Theresa May will fail to persuade cabinet colleagues to back an amended version of her Brexit withdrawal deal.

Brexit uncertainty has grown in recent weeks after the breakdown of talks between May and the opposition Labour party. That has set the stage for the thrice-rejected fail to fail again if, as planned, it is put to vote in parliament in early June.

The pound slipped 0.2% to $1.2688 while against the euro it was down 0.14% to a new four-month low of 87.88 pence.
