Posen: Nothing Good Can Come From Brexit

The pound’s reaction to this week’s gross domestic product report provided an insight into currency traders’ attitude to Brexit.

That underscored how the U.K. currency tends to shrug off economic good news and instead declines on concerns surrounding Britain’s exit from the European Union. A Citigroup Inc. index showed that economic reports have generally beaten forecasts since the vote, yet the U.K. currency has tumbled 18 percent.
