The British pound put in a mixed performance Monday, rising versus the dollar and slipping versus the euro, following a report that U.K. lawmakers will vote next week on Prime Minister Theresa May's controversial Brexit plan.
The U.S. dollar was weaker versus most major rivals, leaving the ICE U.S. Dollar Index a gauge of the currency's performance against six major rivals, at a 2-month low at 95.718, down 0.5%.
The British pound fetched $1.2780, up from $1.2722 in North American trade late Friday. The euro rose to 89.7 pence from around 89.6 pence late Friday.
