US Market View

The pound rebounded after the U.K. and European Union agreed to extend their negotiations on a post-Brexit free trade agreement yet again, after missing the latest self-imposed deadline on Sunday. The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries will release its monthly report on the world oil market as crude oil futures consolidate above $50 a barrel for the first time since the pandemic erupted.
