In any case, Boris Johnson is supposed to decide whether he wants to walk away from the negotiations or continue them – today. The day has just begun in the UK and EU, and hours are ticking.
In the meantime, EUR/GBP is going further and further down pressed by the channel resistance. In the last episode, the currency pairbounced downwards from 0.9080.
