The pound surged to a nearly five-month high against the dollar on Monday, but signs that Brexit negotiations have stalled could prompt bearish bets to rise further against sterling,Speculative investors continue to shrug off positive U.K economic surprises, according to ING FX strategist Francesco Pesole. As a result, bearish bets on sterling will remain “relatively high, if not increase” in the next CFTC report after the latest round of Brexit negotiations failed to end the deadlock, Pesole added.
