What does Brexit mean for your trading?

With Britain due to leave the EU on Friday 29 March, 2019, Theresa May’s government still remains unable to reach a Brexit deal. Much of the debate is centred around the Irish backstop, as well as what a future trade agreement will look like. As negotiations continue, we’ll keep you up-to-date on how ongoing uncertainty could 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.
