TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
Prime Minister Boris Johnson paused his Brexit bill on Tuesday after MPs voted in favour of his deal but rejected the PM’s attempts to rush it through the Commons in three days. Johnson is expected to call for a general election if EU leaders agree to grant the UK a Brexit extension until January.
Neil Wilson, chief market analyst at Markets, said the EU is likely to agree an extension, but the question is the length, which depends on the purpose.
