Yesterday rumours began to circulate that a deal had, in fact, been struck.

In recent months suggestions that a deal is on the horizon has helped sterling clawback strength against the common currency.

However, EU sources "quashed" any rumours, dampening the GBP's outlook by the end of the day.

The pound is currently trading at a rate of 1.0981 against the euro according to Bloomberg at the time of writing.

Michael Brown, currency expert at Caxton FX shared his insight exclusively with Express.co.uk on today's exchange rate.

“Sterling had a choppy day yesterday, bouncing around like a yo-yo at the behest of headline after headline on the post-Brexit trade talks, but ultimately ended the day weaker after EU sources somewhat quashed any rumours that a breakthrough had been made," he said.

"Those talks will remain in focus today, as markets wait to see whether negotiations have made enough progress to enter the intensive ‘tunnel’ phase.

"If they have, sterling should remain well-supported.”

Though the pound celebrates a modest gain in time for its quarter-end at the end of September, financial experts suggest there is more turbulence ahead.
