Boris/British now stand alone against the EU's push for total domination of the continent. The EU now more secure in the play than in the past 4 years, as the promise aide from that bastion of democracy across the pond, with the demise of Trump and the rise of 'the appeaser' Biden-Harris....

seems BOJO trying to use his mojo to convince Lyden to give something visible to UK to show up as a big victory and then sign a deal.
but as all members has agreed the deal can not be better than staying in the EU.
so we need to prepared that no deal is an outcome.
all other markets had setup also this way that eurgbp gonna fly toward 1.0000.

while theres always been a natural suspicion towards the eu for many brits, these days many people dont see it making a huge difference, especially since covid. if there was no covid i guess they may be a little more concerned. but given all the lockdowns, the empty shelves, the closed borders, i dont think another event like that will have quite the same effect.

By Reuters Staff
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen on Monday took a break from a discussion on striking a post-Brexit deal, an EU official said.
The call between the two leaders, which follows an inconclusive one on Saturday, was scheduled to start at around 1600 GMT and about 90 minutes after that time the official said they were taking a break.
The official said it was not clear when they would resume their discussion.

****the US election.
---Sensible media say this is all over, and are focusing on Joe Biden’s socks. However, things might suddenly get stormy in the next 48 hours. Tuesday December 8 is so-called “safe harbor” day. Any state’s election outcome that is undisputed by that date is ‘locked’ into the Electoral College ahead of their actual vote on 14 December, which are sealed until read out and then approved by Congress on 6 January.
---Supreme Court Justice Alito has moved forward the deadline from 4pm on Wednesday to 9am tomorrow for Pennsylvania to respond over appeals over the constitutionality of its vote-by-mail legislation.
---there is a constitutional battle raging in at least three states: Georgia, Arizona, and Pennsylvania. State Republican leadership is refusing to call special legislative sessions to discuss the election results, yet some state legislators appear close to claiming “plenary” constitutional authority over elections to recall themselves unilaterally

Tallinn viies 14:22 GMT December 7, 2020
personally I think... whatever the solution is eurgbp need to go higher. UK economy weakest currently in the oecd world. they need weaker currency to get things going. and as people can not travel, they do not feel poor either with weak currency.

presently the eu says wednesday is the last day. they have their summit 10/11 so that makes sense for them as they also need to ratify it in all eu parliaments.this will take weeks if not months. the uk has only itself to deal with and can let things slide longer. the eu has said wednesday, will they let it run on? they have form for it. i feel they are quite keen to either not be seen as the ones that kicked out the uk, or they are desperate for a deal. if no deal hits during mkt hours, it will be quite choatic. so its bposs this drags on until the weekend and if theres no progress by then, its a no deal sunday night. maybe.

On the other hand, there are plenty of countries who do a huge amount of business with Europe without being in the European Union.
Maybe the UK could join that club. E.g USA, China, Turkey, Rusland and many others.
So a no-deal Brexit basically is not such a big deal.
Also maybe the UK is not the last country that leaves the European Union. It looks like there are plenty of other exit candidates.
london red 13:46 GMT December 7, 2020
for eurgbp i see parity-1.05 or at least i will be happy buying sterling there. make of that what you will. for cable more tricky. depends on how much the eurusd falls as eurgbp and the eurusd will give you the cable rate. but for arguments sake if eurgbp at parity and euro falls to 115 then cable must be 115 also. it cannot be anything else. if eurgbp is 1.05 and euro 115 then cable is around 109. the key thing to remember is that the trajectory of the eurusd fall will determine whether cable gets simply hammered or completely obliterated.

I'd like to offer a somewhat contrarian view to all the understandably grief-stricken postings, and that is one of amazement and admiration.
This is a time when friends, coworkers and companions are fleeting. Even families don't often last 40 years. When's the last time you saw a married couple celebrate their silver or golden anniversaries? Hell, most people I know get divorced within 5 years.
After you are all done with the grief and condolences, perhaps you might consider a round of applause, either public or private. Anybody who can last for decades as a friend, a partner, a coworker or a fellow professional deserves respect.
