Progressions associated with the Brexit and Sino-U.S. trade war are being watched carefully by traders.

May stated in a conference held at around midnight, “What the decision today underlines is the importance of the House of Commons passing a Brexit deal next week so that we can bring an end to the uncertainty and leave in a smooth and orderly manner.”
She also added, “Tomorrow morning, I will be returning to the U.K. and working hard to build support for getting the deal through.”
