The GBP is buoyed significantly my PM May’s speech. USD nursed recent Trump-triggered losses in which comments by the President-elect that USD was too strong and that he preferred a weaker currency pressured the USD-index to 1-month lows. The FTSE100 drops although a few hours after PM May’s speech. Japan 225 stalls at the 50MA. Oil consolidates.
