What does Brexit mean for your trading?

On Monday 28 October the EU agreed to extend the Brexit deadline once again, to 31 January 2020. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has agreed a deal with the EU but the deal still needs to be passed by MPs before it can be implemented. If the deal gets through parliament, the UK could leave earlier than the end of January 2020.  

The 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.
