No-Deal Brexit fears back as new deadline looms

No-Deal Brexit fears back as new deadline looms by Michael Pinson, for Bullion by Post

Brexit, one of the key economic drivers for investors in 2019, is now back to the forefront of news this week as talks continue to make no progress.

This was then followed by reports that the Government is planning new legislation that would see it renege on the Withdrawal Agreement passed just last year, and laid the key foundation for Brexit going forward.

The changes could see the particularly contentious decisions made over the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland broken and have drawn a lot of criticism from across the political spectrum towards the Prime Minister.

If the latest concerns prove to be true, and a no-deal Brexit does happen, then the Pound will almost certainly drop further, pushing precious metal prices higher.
