  • GBP has fallen further on news cross-party Brexit talks have collapsed, raising the prospects of a no-deal exit. Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, said they have 'gone as far as they can' but ultimately talks on a compromise deal have ended without an agreement. Meanwhile a timetable for Theresa May's departure is apparently being set out, but the Prime Minister is determined to try and push her withdrawal agreement forward for a fourth time. Boris Johnson is an early front runner to take over. GBP/EUR has already fallen for 9 consecutive days, its worst run in 15 years, and at the time of writing it looked like we were heading for double digits.

  • The dollar has extended its gains in what has been a rather good week for the greenback. It has been supported mainly by outflows in foreign currencies, with GBP, EUR, Commodity dollars and emerging market currencies all losing out. As we highlighted the potential for the drop yesterday, Bitcoin was -11% on the day today, after recovering from an even sharper drop.

  • China's renminbi has extended its drop on escalated trade tensions, in what has been the worst week for EM currencies since the Turkish lira crisis last summer. China's state media has indicated a lack of interest in resuming trade negotiation talks with the US. Meanwhile a spokesman from China's Ministry of Commence has stated that he has no information on any US officials heading to Beijing for fresh round of trade talks.

Risk Warning Notice Foreign Exchange and CFD trading are high risk and not suitable for everyone. You should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience and risk appetite before making a decision to trade with us. Most importantly, do not invest money you cannot afford to lose. There is considerable exposure to risk in any off-exchange transaction, including, but not limited to, leverage, creditworthiness, limited regulatory protection and market volatility that may substantially affect the price, or liquidity of the markets that you are trading. Margin and leverage To open a leveraged CFD or forex trade you will need to deposit money with us as margin. Margin is typically a relatively small proportion of the overall contract value. For example a contract trading on leverage of 100:1 will require margin of just 1% of the contract value. This means that a small price movement in the underlying will result in large movement in the value of your trade – this can work in your favour, or result in substantial losses. Your may lose your initial deposit and be required to deposit additional margin in order to maintain your position. If you fail to meet any margin requirement your position will be liquidated and you will be responsible for any resulting losses.
