    Brexit Update: These 2 Pros Are Unconcerned

    British Prime Minister Theresa May will go down in history after her Brexit proposal suffered the biggest defeat ever by 230 votes in Parliament. May is calling for all political parties to come together and draft a new Brexit agreement. The problem is that the appearance of this agreement is "as opaque as ever," with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn refusing to enter any talks unless May completely eliminates the possibility of a "no-deal Brexit," Sedgwick said.

    May Survives No-Confidence Vote As Brexit Deadline Nears: 'Unfortunately, Everything Remains Possible'

May narrowly survived a no-confidence vote in Parliament Wednesday, 325-306, and immediately invited leaders of the other major British parties to work with her on talks for a new Brexit deal.

    Theresa May's Brexit Plan Defeated in Parliament, Leaving Government Up In The Air

    The British Parliament on Tuesday rejected Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit plan for leaving the European Union, a stunning defeat leaving Britain’s withdrawal from the common market up in the air. May had warned members of Parliament before the vote that if they rejected her plan, it would be increasingly likely Britain would not leave the EU at all, rather than try to separate from the European trading bloc without some sort of deal spelling out the details of the arrangement. The vote could lead to a new government in Britain, with members of the Labour Party calling for a vote of no confidence in May that could lead to a new general election.

    Popular U.K.-focused ETF edges up after Theresa May suffers historic Brexit defeat

    Country-specific exchange-traded iShares MSCI United Kingdom ETF turned slightly higher by 0.2% Tuesday afternoon after U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May's plan to divorce from the European Union was soundly defeated in a closely watched parliamentary vote. The results showed that 432 members of Parliament voted against the so-called Brexit plan, while 202 voted in favor. The results came after the U.K's popular stock benchmark, the FTSE 100 , was closed, ending the session up 0.6%, before voting commenced. The U.K. ETF provides the earliest sign of how the FTSE may perform in Wednesday trade. Meanwhile, the British pound was trading lower against the dollar, which has usually provided a lift for the FTSE 100-- predominated by international companies that tend to benefit from a weaker pound. The Brexit defeat marks one of the worst such outcomes for a U.K. prime minister and also resulted in opposition party Jeremy Corbyn bringing a vote of no-confidence in the government, which will be debated in Parliament on Wednesday. Meanwhile, stock markets in the U.S. shook off the Brexit vote, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average , the Nasdaq Composite Index and the S&P 500 index all trading solidly higher. The deadline for Brexit was set for March 29, but Tuesday's vote adds uncertainty to many aspects of the Brexit plan.
