JPMorgan analysts have raised their chances of the Brexit trade deal from two-thirds to 80% as far as negotiators from the UK and the European Union are trying to reach an agreement before the end of the year.
"Since the summer we have put the odds of a deal at about two-thirds, and no-deal at a third," JPMorgan said in a note to clients on Tuesday.
"Given the recent newsflow, the likelihood of a deal is clearly growing, and hence we shift our assessment to 80-20 in favour of a deal," – it’s said in the message. A BREXIT trade deal will have a positive effect on the movement of EUR and GBP, so it’s recommended for traders to follow the progress of the negotiations.
Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang expects that the economic activity in the country may return to reasonable limits next year after the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on economic growth in 2020.
It was noted that China will continue to open up and will not pursue a trade surplus, but instead will pay equal attention to imports and exports. The Chinese government also plans to reduce the tax burden on business this year by 2.5 trillion yuan (about $ 373.1 billion) to support economic growth amid the pandemic. This may indicate the attractiveness of the Chinese yuan for investments in the future.
