Here's a summary of some of the sectors and stocks in the United Kingdom that are gaining and losing from May's big Brexit deal loss.
British banks swerved heavy share price losses in early trading on Wednesday, hours after a parliamentary vote on Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal returned the most blistering defeat for a UK government in almost a century.

The modest rises suggest momentum is building behind a 'Plan B' compromise, according to some investors including David Roberts, co-manager on the Liontrust Strategic Bond fund.

The MSCI All Country Index entered bear market territory (i.e., down over 20% from its previous peak) in December. The only two emerging market stock indexes to be up for the year were Brazil and Russia, and the best performing developed market, the tiny New Zealand exchange, lost money, as did all other MSCI developed market indexes.
