Meanwhile, sterling was little changed at $1.31605 and down 0.21% versus the euro at 1.1354, after it emerged that weekend Brexit negotiations between Dominic Raab and the EU’s chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, failed to yield any breakthroughs, with the Irish border still the main bone of contention.
