Citibank research team suggests that they are expecting a ‘No Deal’ Brexit will likely be avoided, which is going to be the most Sterling negative scenario and having a probability of other events such as a General Election in the near term increasing significantly.
“They expect the most probable outcome is for an extension to the negotiating period beyond the March 29 deadline or agreement to a PM May’s proposed deal.”
“Negotiating between the U.K. & Europe continues, with eyes on the scheduled European Leaders summit (March 21) as a potential last chance concession occurring ahead of the current Brexit deadline.”
“The process remains volatile, with Sterling reacting to news-flow, with Citi Analysts highlighting the intraday price action is almost unforecastable.”
