Brexit Is in the Focus of Attention

The uncertainty regarding Brexit is in the foreground again. The European Commission has completed all preparations in case of non-deal Brexit. This week the UK Parliament should vote for the Brexit agreement. If parliamentarians vote for the deal, the UK will leave the union on May 22. If they do not support the agreement, Theresa May will have to choose one of several options before April 12: ask the EU to extend the Brexit deadline, exit from the EU without a deal, or terminate Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, which initiated Brexit.

However, yesterday British parliamentarians voted to give them the right to control the country's exit from the EU. The British Parliament wants to be able to vote for different Brexit options. Most officials consider Theresa May to be not competent enough and unable to control the exit process.

The US currency weakened against a basket of major currencies. Investors are concerned about the inversion of the US government bonds yield curve.
