This week we would like to bring your attention to the Brexit vote taking place on 11th December, which is critical for the future of the UK, the economy, and the Pound Sterling.
The UK House of Commons has begun its lengthy debate on the Brexit agreement that Prime Minister Theresa May reached with the European Union. The discussions will culminate in a vote scheduled for Tuesday, 11th December at approximately 19:00 GMT (21:00 GMT+2 server time). The exact hour is unknown.
The vote has significant implications for the UK economy, and also on some euro-zone countries. Very high volatility is expected in the Pound, and considerable action is also warranted in the Euro.
