With the eurozone looking a bit more secure, for now, and traders looking for new trends to bet on, the pound could lose its "safe-haven" status due to rising doubts about the U.K.'s future in the EU, says UBS analyst Shahab Jalinoos. The government might not mind if sterling would weaken a bit, although they might be concerned about a possible sell-off of gilts, which would push up borrowing costs. The pound is -0.8% at $1.5873.
