Theresa May’s talk of a Brexit delay has boosted the pound. I talk to NAB’s Gavin Friend about that, Jerome Powell’s testimony and what else is driving the markets today.
Podcasts and other audio content from Phil Dobbie
NAB’s Ray Attrill on the last chance to push back that March 1 tariff deadline. The Fed’s talk of average inflation targeting. And Brexit – could it be pushed back two years?
US stocks continue to rise but, as I discuss with NAB’s Rodrigo Catril, uncertainty remains over the China trade talks and there’s clarification needed from the Fed’s thinking in tomorrow’s minutes. The pound does well on strong jobs and wage numbers.
The Telegraphs coverage of a massive public display today. For those who were there, or saw the aerial shots, it wasnt as big as you think apparently. One commenter put it at 100k. https://t.co/ulpfafibNO
