The British pound and euro both edged higher on Thursday, as investors kept their focus on Brexit developments and the European Central Bank's final policy meeting of the year.
The pound was on the front foot, with GBP/USD gaining 0.3% to 1.2671 by 3:45AM ET (08:45 GMT).
It had bounced off a 20-month low of 1.2478 in the last session to end up 1.1% after Prime Minister Theresa May survived a no-confidence vote.
The euro was up 0.1% at 1.1385 ahead of the announcement.
Elsewhere, the U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a basket of six major currencies, was down 0.1% at 96.92.
