UK Cabinet minister, Michael Gove was out with some Brexit-related comments in the last hour and confirmed that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will meet the European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen later this Wednesday.

Key quotes:

  • Very difficult to get a Brexit deal unless EU moves.
  • EU has to move on key issues; the UK cannot be tied to EU laws.
  • We have to have a deal that respects the UK.

The comments did little to provide any meaningful impetus to the British pound. The GBP/USD pair was still trading with modest daily gains, around the 1.3370 region.
