French President Emmanuel Macron recently crossed the wires saying that they would agree  to an Article 50 extension  request on Brexit ‘only if it was justified.’

Meanwhile, in her statement earlier in the day, British Prime Minister Theresa May reiterated that she was continuing to push for legally binding changes to the Irish backstop and argued that a no-deal would be better than a bad deal.

The GBP/USD pair didn’t react to these comments and was last seen trading at 1.3315, adding 0.5% on a daily basis amid the broad-based selling pressure surrounding the greenback.
