    British pound hits fresh 20-month low as U.K.'s May struggles with Brexit deal

    The British pound touched a fresh 20-month low on Tuesday amid continuous Brexit struggles that saw U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May jetting across the European continent in an effort to get reassurances on the Northern Ireland border issue as she attempts to shore up support at home for her Brexit plan. Meanwhile back in the U.K., there were conflicting reports about whether enough Conservative members of parliament had sent in letters that would trigger a leadership challenge to May. The Prime Minister pulled the vote on her Brexit deal on Tuesday, apparently under the assumption that she would lose it anyway. But as a vote of no-confidence has seemed close before, investors might practice caution, explaining the relatively muted slide in sterling that nevertheless hit its lowest level since April 2017. The pound last bought $1.2537, down 0.3%, but up from its session low of $1.2493. The euro spiked to £0.9064, but since came down to an unchanged level of £0.9028.
