The British pound traded near five-month highs at $1.289 on Friday, after the UK PM Boris Johnson tried to persuade the opposition to back his last-minute Brexit deal in an extraordinary vote in parliament on Saturday. Number 10 needs the backing of at least 318 MPs to pass. The outcome is uncertain, as Northern Irish allies are opposed to a deal and the three main opposition parties have pledged to vote it down. Historically, the British Pound reached an all time high of 2.86 in December of 1957 and a record low of 1.05 in February of 1985.

The British Pound is expected to trade at 1.22 by the end of this quarter, according to Trading Economics global macro models and analysts expectations. Looking forward, we estimate it to trade at 1.20 in 12 months time.
