A lot of volatility is seen in Sterling in the past 12 hours. The Pound was sold off on the historical defeat of Prime Minister Theresa May in the Commons. But it found its footing quickly. For now, there is still prospect of extending recent rebound against Dollar and Euro.
Though, at the time of writing, Yen is the strongest one for today. Australian Dollar is the weakest. But all are bounded in yesterday’s range after all.
For the week, Sterling remains the strongest followed by Yen, Euro is the worst performing followed by Swiss Franc.
