Senior Market Analyst Craig Erlam previews the upcoming week in the financial markets, covering the major political stories as well as key economic data points.
As Brexit negotiations reach a critical point, the pound will be a particular focal point in currency markets. Reports of progress on the financial settlement and the Northern Ireland border have provided a boost to sterling in recent sessions, the question now is whether enough has been done to move onto trade.
Donald Trump took another significant step towards getting Tax Reform over the line last week after the Senate narrowly passed a bill. With another hurdle overcome, the Senate and the House will now try to find a compromise between the two bills that will survive another vote in both chambers. Bit will this be easier said than done?
Craig discusses all of this and more and also gives his live analysis on EURUSD (10:12), GBPUSD (12:56), EURGBP (15:06), AUDUSD (16:55), USDCAD (20:02), GBPCAD (21:52), NZDUSD (23:52), USDJPY (26:05), GBPJPY (27:29) and EURJPY (29:36).
