Sterling climbed above $1.25 to its highest in a month against the dollar, as signs Britain might be willing to compromise on sticking points in a fresh round of Brexit negotiations with the European Union provided support.

Britain has until July 1 to ask for an extension to the current transition period, which ends in December.

Despite what is likely to be a period of high Brexit headline risks for UK assets in the coming weeks and months, a report that the UK may be willing to compromise in upcoming Brexit negotiations – along with broad-based US dollar weakness due to the idiosyncratic risk posed by nationwide U.S. protests – is keeping the pound underpinned against the dollar.
