    British Parliament to vote on May's Brexit deal for third time on Tuesday: reports

    U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May will put a version of her Brexit withdrawal agreement to a vote in Parliament on Tuesday, according to local reports. This will be the third vote on May's deal, which has previously been rejected in January and earlier this month. The U.K. was scheduled to leave the European Union by March 29, but last week secured an extension that would postpone the deadline to June 30 if May's deal was supported by lawmakers. If the deal is rejected, the U.K. will have until April 12 to decide on next steps or leave the EU without a withdrawal agreement. The British pound pared earlier losses following the reports and was last up 0.2% at $1.3242.

    Wall Street Futures Steady, Bond Yields Rise, as German Sentiment Rebounds

    US stocks steady as stronger-than-expected reading of German business sentiment takes sting from yield curve inversion following heavy selling overnight in Asia. U.S. Treasury curve slopes positive between 3-month bills and 10-year notes, after tipping into inversion for the first time since 2007 last week, as Chicago Fed President Evans plays down the chances of near-term recession. US equity sentiment gets a modest boost from Muller report conclusions, which suggest there was no Russian collusion with the Trump campaign during the 2016 election, even as many questions regarding the probe remain unanswered..
