  • Brexit latest: MPs seized control of the exit process last night. A few ministers resigned to join a cross-party effort to develop a Plan B to Prime Minister Theresa May’s deal.
  • Elsewhere,  safe-haven precious metals (and JPY) weakened as major EU indices regained their poise after a big sell-off Friday, following on a firmer Asian session overnight. Government bond prices fell as market participants wondered whether recent concerns over a recession are justified. Crude oil gained ground amid risk-on rebound.
