Does the British pound have any chance?
As the Brexit situation does not become any brighter, the British pound suffers, too. The British Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to step down from her post by the end of June. This fact does not reduce the risks of a no-deal Brexit due to the lack of certainty in the final divorce deal with the EU.
