    Will Sterling’s Rally Last?

Any negative news regarding Brexit negotiations will probably weaken the marketplace confidence supporting Sterling today. The US dollar is rebounding from a 5-month low, after US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin commented that a strong dollar would be good for the economy in the long run. It’s still subdued, however, after President Trump said earlier that he preferred a weak dollar.
