While global markets cheered an intermediate relief to the Brexit watchers, policymakers from London and Brussels need to develop a strategy to not let this opportunity be wasted. Though, a few odds are favoring that the Tories will not show readiness to compromise until Brussels ease a bit.

Other than the Brexit chatters, the vaccine optimism and hopes of the US coronavirus (COVID-19) stimulus offers a positive start to the week. While stocks futures cheer the optimism, the US 10-year Treasury yields follow the suit.

Looking forward, the British reaction to the latest Brexit development and the EU’s readiness to push more efforts for a deal will be the key element that can keep the GBP/USD bulls happy. Meanwhile, the no-deal Brexit fears lurk beneath the table and can jump on anytime to change the sentiment.
