There is no new agreement between Spain, Netherlands on British departure
Refutes earlier claims of a soft exit...
The Dutch finance minister is saying that there is no new agreement between Spain, Netherlands on British departure from EU.
Earlier today, there were reports that Dutch and Spanish finance ministers have agreed to work together to push for a Brexit deal that keeps Britain as close to the EU as possible (see post).
The move sent the GBPUSD higher.
The GBPUSD currently trades near highs at 1.3686 (high reached 1.3694).
