Yesterday Teresa May delivered her first speech addressing foreign policy since she became PM, where she again talked about setting international trade agreements and talked of plans to “set our own rules and forge new and dynamic trading agreements that work for the whole UK” and not go for an “off-the-shelf solution.” Although this morning there has been reports of a leaked Cabinet Office memo dated 7th November claiming there is no plan for Brexit. Could this be the beginning of a pound decline?

We are still on the wrong side of the governments appeal against the high court ruling that Parliament should have a say before the UK invokes Article 50 which is due to be heard on the 5th December, it is likely we could see further Pound volatility and possibly these recent gains lost.
