Snapshot of the changes.
The NY morning (and into the early afternoon) has boosted the GBP and weakened the USD.
The GBP moved from being weaker to surging to the top of the table with help from hopes that there may be some give and take with the EU on a solution for the Irish border. That has helped to squeeze the pound higher.
For the USD, the GBPs move, dragged up the EUR (weakening the USD). Yields in the US are also falling and helping to weaken the greenback.
Dollar weakness is helping to support gold. It is up $9.50 or 0.63% at $1505.40.
WTI crude oil futures are down $0.17 or -0.30% of $56.04.
US stocks rallied from lower levels to turn positive (well the S&P just got to unchanged and turned around), but are back in the red. The German DAX. France CAC, UK FTSE all snatched defeat from the jaws of victory after giving up gains and closing lower.
