Fundamental: Pound came under pressure after UK Parliament failed to find a majority of its own for any alternative to Prime Minister Theresa May’s divorce deal. Today the Prime Minister is due to hold five hours of cabinet meetings with senior ministers to plan the government’s next moves. Dollar continued to strengthen against its major crosses despite weaker-than-expected retail sales number from the US. This week volatility for the dollar is expected to remain high ahead of the important payrolls number. Better-than-expected employment number could extend gains for the greenback
