The pound fell to its lowest since mid-November on Thursday as investors fretted that the message to come out of a European Union summit will be that there has been no meaningful progress for months in negotiations on a Brexit deal.
The British currency slid 0.4 percent to as low as $1.3066 in early European trading, its weakest since Nov. 13.
The latest drop means the pound has tumbled more than 9 percent since a post-Brexit referendum high in April, sent lower in part by a resurgent dollar but also by mounting worries about Britain's economy less than a year before Britain departs the EU.
Against the euro sterling also fell, 0.2 percent to 88.29 pence per euro. It earlier had weakened to its lowest level since early May.
