The US Dollar Is Consolidating. Brexit Voting Is Canceled

The US dollar is changing slightly against a basket of currency majors. The dollar index (#DX) closed yesterday's trading session with a slight increase (+0.04%). Investors’ sentiment improved amid news of positive developments in US-China talks. Chinese Vice-Foreign Minister Le Yucheng said the parties had made progress in the negotiations. US President Donald Trump, in turn, said that the settlement of the trade dispute was progressing well.

Investors also continue to monitor the situation in the UK. Yesterday, British Parliament Speaker John Bercow said that a repeat vote for or against the Brexit deal would not be held, as this issue has already been considered. He believes that the vote would be a repeat of the stage passed. The issue of the deal was already considered at the weekend, after which Boris Johnson was forced to make a request to the EU on the Brexit delay.
