[GBP] PM May offers referendum on WAB

[GBP] UK PM May says she offering Parliament a vote on a second referendum. The govt will include in the Withdrawal Agreement Bill (WAB) at introduction, a requirement to vote on whether to hold a second referendum. This will take place before the withdrawal agreement can be ratified. And should Parliament vote for a referendum, it would require the govt to make provisions for such a plebiscite which would include legislation, if it wants to ratify the WAB. This should be viewed as a positive for GBP.

[USD] US Preview: FOMC Minutes

[USD] The minutes from the 30 April - 1 May FOMC meeting will be published on Wednesday at 14:00EDT (18:00GMT). Markets will likely pay close attention to this release in an attempt to estimate the Fed's likely next step, particularly anything that might trigger a change in current policy. Additionally, markets will look towards any significant benchmark measures of note (employment or otherwise) that could possibly provide a guide for policy moving forward (with obvious concerns focused the status of the economic outlook beyond 2019). Though the Fed Funds rate has been relatively accommodative for quite some time (only recently entering the lower end of the neutral range), the timing over the Fed's next move (also any clarification on what amount of time 'patience' would suggest) is something that could receive additional clarity via these minutes.
