British Pound (GBP) Latest: French Official - UK-EU May 'Rip Each Other Apart'

British Pound (GBP) Latest: French Official - UK-EU May 'Rip Each Other Apart'

Nick Cawley, Strategist

GBP/USD Price, Chart and Analysis:

  • Sterling little changed despite trade negotiation warning.
  • GBP/USD supported in a holiday-thinned market.

Post-Brexit Trade Negotiations May Get Ugly, Early.

A senior EU official, speaking at a conference in Germany, warned that the EU and UK may ’rip each other apart’ when trade negotiations begin, as both sides look to take the upper hand. French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said that the EU will be a tough negotiator when talks begin in March and that a trade deal between the two sides this year is unlikely. With both the EU and the UK adopting tough negotiating positions, there is a worry that trade talks may stall soon after the start. UK PM Boris Johnson has repeatedly said that the UK will leave the EU, with or without a trade deal at the end of December this year.
