Currencies: Pound tumbles on fresh Brexit worries, as dollar continues to rise

The dollar rally resumed Monday, inspired by last week’s data pointing to improved conditions in the jobs market, as the British pound came under fresh pressure on Brexit concerns.

The ICE Dollar Index DXY, +0.11% added 0.2% to 102.44, trading not far off its highs of the session. The gauge finished Friday’s session at around 102.26. The WSJ Dollar Index BUXX, +0.12% , which compares the buck to a wider basket of currencies than the ICE Dollar Index, rose 0.3% to 93.10, from 92.85 last Friday.

Data released Friday showed the U.S. added 156,000 jobs in December.
