Good morning


Last week GBP outperformed its G10 peers trading on optimism around the progress of Brexit discussions, despite concerns around the full resolution of the Irish Border Deal.


GBP/USD touched a 2-month high of $1.3550 Thursday, opening today at $1.3480.

GBP/EUR touched a 1-month high of €1.1395 albeit briefly, opening up at 1.1330 this morning.


Theresa May heads for Brussels today to meet with Jean-Claude Junker where expectant talks around the UK’s payment to the EU, the Irish Boarder and rights of EU citizens, will be top of the bill.

Have a good week.
