Follow UK Parliament Withdrawal vote closely

Following the respite in oil prices following the long-awaited agreement reached by OPEC+ and the recent arrest of Huawei CFO Wanzhou Meng amid alleged violations of Iran sanctions declared by the US, trade talks between the US and China expected to kick off this week are expected to be choppy. Following the announcement from Fed Chairman Powell that he would be closely watching US data in order to take a decision over the normalization path to implement and when closely watching debt-servicing costs, it seems pretty clear that a slow down in the normalization process is credible. The UK Parliament vote of Tuesday should add volatility on the forex market, as MPs are expected to refuse the Withdrawal Agreement. However, contrarily to what most market participants think, alternatives following the rejection remain.
