On Monday morning sterling passed the $1.30 barrier for the first time since May, having gone below $1.20 in early September. In less than two weeks, the currency has appreciated by over 5% as the government agreed a new deal with the EU on the UK’s terms of departure. Events in the House of Commons this week will probably determine how the currency fares in the short term.
