Sterling is continuing to strengthen, and just hit $1.36 against the US dollar, up over a cent today.
That puts the pound close to its highest level since 2018 (it hit $1.362, a 31-month high, last Thursday).
But, sterling is still sharply lower than before the EU referendum in 2016, when it traded around $1.48.
The FTSE 250, which is more domestically focused than the blue-chip FTSE 100, has hit a new eight-month high this morning.
The index of medium-sized companies, many in the UK, jumped by over 1% in early trading, hitting its highest level since the end of February (when the pandemic sent markets tumbling).
