Currencies: Pound stabilizes after jolt on Brexit uncertainty

Britain’s pound on Tuesday recovered some of the sharp losses suffered a day earlier when the departure of two powerful ministers reignited uncertainty and turmoil surrounding the government’s Brexit plans.

The pound GBPUSD, -0.0453% briefly rose above $1.33 on Tuesday, but last traded at $1.3274 up from $1.3258 late Monday in New York. This came even as the ICE U.S. Dollar Index DXY, +0.15% which measures the buck against six other currencies, bounced 0.2% higher to 94.217. On Monday in comparison, sterling rallied to a two-week high before dropping more than a cent below $1.32 on the back of the domestic political turmoil.
