    EU proposes conditional Brexit deadline extension to May 22

    The European Union proposed a conditional extension of the Brexit deadline until May 22 -- when elections for the European Parliament begin -- in draft conclusions of a European Council meeting Thursday, according to reports. However, the extension would be tied to the U.K. Parliament supporting Prime Minister Theresa May's withdrawal deal. The deal, or an amended version thereof, is expected to be put to vote next week. The EC said an extension beyond May 22 was impossible due to the EU elections, which the U.K. isn't intending to take part in. May had requested an extension until June 30. At present, the U.K. is set to leave the EU on March 29 without a trade deal in place. The British pound , dropped to a session-low of $1.2981 shortly before the extension proposal became known. It was its lowest level in about two-weeks. Sterling last bought $1.3046, down 1.1% from Wednesday. The euro , meanwhile, bought £0.8700, up 0.6%.

    Bank of England leaves policy on hold amid Brexit uncertainty

    The Bank of England left its main lending rate unchanged at 0.75% on Thursday, in line with expectations. The central bank said new economic data has been mixed and the U.K.'s economic outlook will depend significantly on the nature and timing of Brexit. "Shifting expectations about the potential nature and timing of the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union have continued to generate volatility in UK asset prices, particularly the sterling exchange rate," said the BOE statement. "Brexit uncertainties also continue to weigh on confidence and short-term economic activity, notably business investment." The market reaction to the policy update was muted, with the British pound holding its losses in response. Sterling last bought $1.3115, down 0.6%. In other assets, the 10-year gilt also reacted little, last yielding 1.08%, while U.K. stock benchmark FTSE 100 held on to its modest gain, last up 0.4%
