    Sterling remains at the mercy of the news flow on Brexit drama. London Mayor shall now urge British voters to leave the European Union when the country holds a June referendum on the issue. Justice Minister Michael Gove, political ally of Cameron, has also come out in favor of severing ties with the EU.

    Meanwhile, the preliminary PMI readings are due across the Eurozone and may influence EUR. Oil price movements and its impact on the broader market sentiment could have a say in determining exchange rate as well.
