The media has reported that up to 100 Conservative MP's will vote against the PM’s Brexit deal, leaving it a complete non-starter. PM May still has time to convince her MP's, but this is becoming even more unlikely after news broke yesterday that PM May has ruled out a Norway-style deal as a back-up plan if the government lose the vote in the House of Commons. PM May and the leader of the Opposition Jeremy Corbyn will have a televised one-hour Brexit debate on Sunday December 9th, just two days before the vote in Parliament. If PM May’s proposal is rejected, the Brexit negotiations may take another turn for the worse, impacting the value of Sterling.

As mentioned in yesterdays report, I wanted to explain what could happen over the coming weeks for those with exchanges that need to be completed by end of year or early January 2019. We now know the PM will spend the next couple of weeks trying to sell her Brexit deal to the UK public and, more importantly, the UK Parliament, warning that it is the best deal possible and that any other versions would hurt the UK economically.

With market sentiment for GBP/EUR rate on a sideway trend at time of writing - Current key trading level is now around the €1.1280’s. If we see the rate move Higher than this level for a sustained amount of time, then the likelihood of the rate moving into the low €1.13’s will be high. A leadership challenge is still hanging over PM May but the longer it fails to transpire then least likely it will be to happen however some analysts are suggesting that some Tory MP’s are holding off to see how PM May preforms in Europe this weekend when she looks to get the approval for some amendments. Any delay or cancellation of November’s Brexit Summit will most likely be seen as negative for the GBP/EUR exchange rate but on the flip side if she comes back from Brussels with the amendments she needs to keep her cabinet/DUP happy then we could see the GBP/EUR rate move higher once again.
