Britain Breaks Brexit Law
Cable fell more than 100 pips Monday after Johnson set an Oct 15 deadline for the framework of a deal. So far progress on the stick parts of an agreement has been almost nil.
Even worse, the EU warned Johnson against reneging on parts of the withdrawal agreement after his government drew up new rules that could violate pledges on Northern Ireland. The UK PM said he is willing to walk away rather than compromise on core Brexit principles.
For now the market is showing some concern but we've been through the threats so many times before. Brinksmanship is part of the game and all of the tabloid-driven fearmongering has hardly bruised the economy over the past three years.
The makes it more of a question of when to buy a dip, not when to sell a rally. Near term eyes will be on 1.30 followed by 1.28.
The US and Canada are back from holiday on Tuesday but the economic calendar is empty.
