    U.K. ETFs Plunge on Fears of a No Deal Brexit

    United Kingdom markets and country-related ETFs retreated Tuesday on growing concerns that the U.K. could divorce the European Union at the end of next year without a trade agreement. On Tuesday, the iShares MSCI United Kingdom ETF (EWU) declined 1.7%, and the currency-focused  Invesco Currency Shares British Pound Sterling (FXB) fell 1.7% as the British pound dropped 1.6% against the U.S. dollar to $1.3121, its worst daily pullback in over a year. Prime Minister Boris Johnson wants to prevent a transition period after the U.K.’s Brexit from being extended beyond the end of 2020, the Wall Street Journal reports.

    Why the British Pound Is Set for a Big Move

    The British pound looks set to break out soon. The reason for the range-bound trading is that investors aren't sure whether the United Kingdom will cut a trade deal with the European Union when it leaves the bloc on March 29, the scheduled date. "A hard Brexit could mean 10% down for sterling," said Ugo Lancioni, head of currency management at Neuberger Berman in London.
