The U.K. Supreme Court will soon decide on whether the U.K. government must allow lawmakers to have a say in starting the Brexit process. But regardless of what the court decides, the pound may still have room to rise, market strategists said.
Investors will watch for a decision Tuesday on whether U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May must consult the U.K. parliament before triggering Article 50, or the process for Britain to exit the European Union. The government is appealing a High Court ruling in November that sided with litigants who argued that the government must get parliamentary approval before it enacts Article 50.
The Supreme Court will issue its decision on Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. London time, or 4:30 a.m. Eastern Time
Pound pushes up: The pound has risen more than 2% against the U.S. dollar since last Tuesday, and is now trading around $1.247 for the first time since mid-December, FactSet data showed.
