Economic data on Monday was relatively sparse on the day. The Bank of England Governor, Mark Carney gave a scheduled speech. Most of his speech highlighted the markets post-Brexit.
The British PM May was seen delaying the Brexit vote, and the next voting is expected to happen on March 12. Meanwhile, two British lawmakers have pushed for a vote to postpone the Brexit deadline of March 29th. Some lawmakers said that if PM May cannot get a Brexit deal approved by March 13th, they would force her to extend the deadline.
Mixed data from the U.S.
From the United States, the final wholesale inventories rose by 1.1% on the month which was above expectations of a 0.3% increase. President Trump raised the market optimism by noting that the U.S. was close to agreeing on a deal with China. The markets await more news on this.
