    Markets have 'never seen anything remotely similar' to a no-deal Brexit, strategist warns

    Moritz Kraemer, former chief sovereign analyst at S&P ratings agency, told CNBC's "Squawk Box Europe" on Monday that, at current levels, it is clear markets remain underprepared for the prospect a no-deal Brexit. A no-deal scenario is generally considered to be where the U.K. crashes out of the EU without any formal relationship and has to rely on WTO trading rules. The U.K. currency has largely been viewed as a barometer of fear during Brexit negotiations, with sterling suffering steep losses against the dollar last week amid heightened political turmoil.

    [$$] U.K.’s Window Into a Less Globalized Economy

    LONDON—The U.K. economy has so far weathered the political storm surrounding Brexit pretty well. Researchers at the Centre for European Reform, a London think tank focused on European Union policy, estimate the economy was 2.5% smaller at the end of the second quarter than it would have been had voters chosen in 2016 to stay in the EU. Growth in the U.K. slowed after the referendum as economies such as the U.S., France and Germany kicked into higher gear, a reflection of subdued investment and a squeeze on consumer wallets from a burst of inflation.
