Big picture: Investors not annoyed about Brexit
The British parliament voted for a Brexit delay by a wide margin that is 400 vs. 200. So far, a delay of three months has been approved. Premier Theresa May will make another attempt to make an agreement with the EU Parliament until March 20. However, if a new deal is not settled by that date that is almost guaranteed, the UK departure will be postponed for a very long time.
So, the vote for the Brexit delay has calmed markets down as this matter is not so urgent any more.
