LONDON - 13 November 2018: Sterling extended its gains on Tuesday after British cabinet office minister David Lidington said a Brexit divorce deal was still possible in the next 24 or 48 hours.

Sterling jumped half a percent to as high as $1.2917 from around $1.2870 before Lidington’s comments.

The pound rose 0.2 percent versus the euro at 87.11 pence.

The British currency had tumbled on Monday on signs a deal with Brussels for the terms of the UK’s exit from the European Union was still some way off.
