Market Extra: Here’s what’s next for Brexit and the British pound

The Brexit saga is back in the spotlight this week, with multiple key votes scheduled in Parliament and only 17 days to go until the U.K. is scheduled to leave the European Union.

On the agenda this week is a vote on Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal — presumably a slightly reconfigured version of what she agreed with the EU late last year — on Tuesday. If the deal is rejected, lawmakers will get to vote on whether or not they want a hard, no-deal Brexit, which is considered the worst-case market scenario, on Wednesday. If Parliament votes against the no-deal outcome, lawmakers get their say as to whether or no to extend the deadline for leaving beyond March 29, kicking the Brexit can further down the road on Thursday.
