Read our series on the difficulties facing specific industry sectors and the effects Brexit may have.
The default position is still that the UK will leave the EU on 31 October at 23:00 GMT (UK time). However new legislation, which was granted royal assent on Monday 9 September, will force the prime minister to seek a delay to 31 January 2020 unless a deal, or a no-deal exit, is approved by 19 October.
This ongoing uncertainty could continue to affect the financial markets. Find out how Brexit could impact different sectors (such as retail, banks and the general economy), which markets to watch, and what the consequences of a deal or no-deal Brexit could be. Plan your trading strategy with the help of our timeline, which outlines the key Brexit dates and news.
