Question

How could Brexit continue to affect the value of the pound?

Answer

The FX market reacts badly to uncertainty and the pound has suffered as a result of the mystery surrounding how, when and if the UK will leave the European Union.

Since the referendum of June 2016 the pound has fluctuated depending on the market view of how ‘soft’ or ‘hard’ that split may eventually be. The pound has tended to rally whenever Brexit has seemed to be softening, or delayed or even not happening at all. Conversely, the pound has been sold on any sign that a no deal, or generally disorderly Brexit is the more likely.
