The basic elements

The Pound finished the best last quarter in a decade with a value rising 6.6% against the US Dollar. The fourth quarter begins with Borish Johnson reaching an Agreement with the EU before the end of the quarter by winning the majority of the vote in the December 12 election. Thus, the Conservative party of the incumbent Prime Minister has a record. best since Margaret Thatcher.

Accordingly, Brexit will occur in late January 2020. However, when it comes to Q1 2020, with the solutions already found, another challenge is still waiting when the UK enters the transition period. Next, it will expire at the end of 2020.
