Asian equities tack on after Brexit deal changes
On Tuesday, the UK pound managed to ascend and Asian stocks surged right after the European Commission agreed to a number of updates of a Brexit agreement ahead of a vote in the UK legislative body on a divorce deal.
On Monday, Jean-Claude Juncker, European Commission head agreed to extra assurances in a revised Brexit agreement with UK Prime Minister Theresa May, although warned that British lawmakers wouldn’t be granted a third chance to have it endorsed.
The UK pound that had ascended ahead of the negotiations between Juncker and May, extended its gains on expectations that the changes might be enough to sway rebellious UK lawmakers who have come up with a threat to vote down May's plan once again on Tuesday.
The UK pound managed to rally by 0.5% concluding the trading session at $1.3215. For the last two days, its gains amounted to 1.5%.
