Citing an official in French President Macron’s office, Reuters reported that France believed that a no-deal Brexit was now the most likely outcome and pressure from US President Trump wouldn’t be able to change that.

“The EU  would probably accept to grant Britain a delay on Brexit to hold new elections,” the official added. “Britain should have no doubt France, Germany and other EU  countries are totally united.”

The British pound came under pressure on these comments and the GBP/USD pair started to erase the last hour’s recovery gains. As of writing, the pair was down 0.4% on the day at 1.2120.
