Pound Falls After Lawmakers Vote Against No-Deal Brexit; Yuan Down on Weak Data

Thursday, 14 March 2019 15:20 WIB



The British pound fell on Thursday in Asia after U.K. lawmakers voted to reject leaving the EU without a withdrawal agreement. The yuan also slid following the release of below-forecast factory output data.

On Wednesday, U.K. lawmakers voted by 312 to 308 for an amendment that ruled out the U.K. leaving the EU without a withdrawal agreement. Lawmakers are now expected later today to vote for a delay to Brexit on March 29.

The GBP/USD pair initially rallied more than 2% following the news but gave up some of its earlier gains today. The pair last traded at 1.3242 by 12:30 AM ET (04:30 GMT), down 0.7%.

The U.S. dollar index that tracks the greenback against a basket of other currencies gained 0.1% to 96.648. The dollar was under pressure on Wednesday as the pound rallied on the latest Brexit news.
