Sterling held near a one-week low on Monday as Brexit negotiations appeared to have hit an impasse before a crucial European Union summit later this week.

Negotiators from both sides have been locked in talks this week to overcome differences on the biggest outstanding hurdle to a deal - how to keep the UK frontier with the Irish republic free of border checks after Britain leaves the EU in March.

But EU negotiator Michel Barnier said after meeting British Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab that they could still not bridge a gap between his “backstop” demands that Northern Ireland stay in the EU’s economic zone if there is a risk that border checks with EU member Ireland could revive conflict, and London’s rejection of any checks on trade between the province and the British mainland.

The British currency edged 0.3 percent lower to $1.3080 on Monday, its lowest in almost a week. Against the euro it weakened by a similar margin to 88.09 pence.
