Sterling continues to be volatile ahead of Thursday

GBP dropped off today as many investors have continued to off-load the pound ahead of the Bank of England meeting this Thursday when the central bank is expected to keep interest rates on hold, and as worries about Brexit negotiations resurface.

Tensions within Britain’s governing Conservative party over how to agree terms of exit from the European Union have also re-emerged as a key political risk for the pound.
