    What a Brexit deal would mean for U.S. stocks and global investors

    A tentative agreement that would see the U.K. finally leave the European Union after more than three years of acrimonious wrangling gave U.S. stock-index futures a modest pop early Thursday. As Mohamed El-Erian, chief economic adviser to Allianz, put it on Twitter, the initial move higher by U.S. stock-index futures is “consistent with the view that investors are looking for policy progress to offset weakening global fundamentals, and growing central bank ineffectiveness” to be offset by progress on trade and fiscal policy.

    CURRENCIES SHOW A SHIFT TO SAFETY AND MATURITY – WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

    Recent rotation in multiple foreign currencies hints at the fact that a new stage of the “Capital Shift” process is taking place and that skilled technical investors need to pay very close attention to how these currencies continue to react over the next 3 to 6+ months. In the recent past, most of the world’s foreign currencies were declining in value while the US Dollar continued to strengthen. In fact, we authored many research articles about these trends and how weakness in foreign currencies will drive new foreign investment into the US stock markets for two simple reasons; strength and security.

    Pound slides after DUP says it won’t agree to current Brexit deal

    Wild gyrations seen this week for the British pound continued Thursday, with the currency falling anew after a key group of Northern Ireland politicians said they can’t support U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s current Brexit plan. The pound has gained around 0.8% this week, but with plenty of ups and downs, while the FTSE 100 index (UK:UKX) has fallen 1%. As things stand, we could not support what is being suggested on customs and consent issues and there is a lack of clarity on VAT,” said DUP leader Arlene Foster and MP Nigel Dodds in a statement.

The U.K. FTSE 100 (UK:UKX) was down 0.3% to 7,184.21, while the British pound struggled as the possibly of the U.K. reaching an exit-deal with the bloc ahead of the start of a two-day EU summit that begins Thursday hung in the balance. EU and U.K. negotiators failed to reach a breakthrough in all-night Brussels talks which will continue on Wednesday.

    British pound volatile after report says major Brexit-deal obstacle removed

    The British pound was sent on a rollercoaster ride Wednesday, spiking briefly against the U.S. dollar on a report that a big obstacle to a Brexit deal has been removed. The pound briefly jumped to a session high of $1.2839, which would make for its best level since June, after RTE reported that Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party was accepting the so-called consent element of the revised Brexit agreement, seen as the last big obstacle to a deal. The U.K. has said it's open to some flexibility on the mechanism that would allow Northern Ireland politicians to decide whether it remains in regulatory alignment with the European Union as set out in Britain's latest Brexit deal proposals. The pound has since fallen back after the DUP's leader Arlene Foster reportedly denied the report and said talks will continue. Markets have been on a knife-edge in the runup to a two-day European Union meeting that starts Thursday, seen as a deadline for a deal to get done. The pound has since drifted back to $1.2783.
