UK pound goes down amid Brexit uncertainties
On Tuesday, the UK pound headed south in Asia after British lawmakers denied all alternative options to the country’s Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit proposal.
As a matter of fact, the currency pair GBP/USD tumbled by 0.2% being worth 1.3068.
Investors are closely watching further developments on the Brexit after the British legislative body once again denied all alternative options to May’s withdrawal proposal.

For March, ISM manufacturing data revealed an uptick to 55.3, which surpassed an estimate for 54.5. An outcome above 50 in the ISM index stands for an expansion in manufacturing, accounting for nearly 12% of the American economy.
The currency pair USD/CNY managed to jump by about 0.2% being worth 6.7198.
The currency pair AUD/USD declined by 0.1% right after the Reserve Bank of Australia held its interest rates at 1.5% exactly as anticipated.
Additionally, the currency pair NZD/USD dived by 0.4% showing 0.6775.
