Pound Slides to This Year's Low as Brexit to Italy Risks.

The pound falls to the lowest levels against the dollar this year.

Apart from the data, the U.K. will go into the next round of Brexit talks against a backdrop of euro-zone turmoil as Italy’s populist coalition pushes ahead with an agenda that’s at odds with the EU.  In the UK backbench members of parliament are said to be preparing for an Autumn election as they anticipate defeats on Theresa May’s key piece of Brexit legislation.

The Pound fell to $1.3287 yesterday afternoon and bounced to 1.3317 this morning. Sterling has fallen to 1.137 against the Euro.


Data to look out today.
