British Prime Minister Boris Johnson crossed the wires in the last minutes saying that he is very hopeful about getting a Brexit divorce deal at the EU summit next month.
“It is very important to understand government no-deal document is a worst-case scenario. Ports and industries will be ready,” Johnson added. “We are ready on October 31 to come out of the EU and deliver on the referendum result.”
The GBP/USD pair seems to be posting modest gains on these comments and was last up 0.1% on the day at 1.2338.
