The market believes that a Brexit compromise will be found as the economic consequences of not reaching an agreement, while COVID-19 remains rampant, will force a deal.
The UK repeated on Sunday that they will only back a deal 'that is compatible with our sovereignty', while the EU show no signs of softening their base demand of a 'level playing field' for government policy to ensure fair competition nL8N2I21TY
