All eyes are on PM Theresa May's.......>

GILT SUMMARY: All eyes are on PM Theresa May's Brexit vote speech at 4pm today.
This is supposedly a chance for the PM to outline the details of her 'new' and
'bold' deal, although it is unlikely that it will contain any provisions that
would be sufficient to get her  Brexit deal across the line.
- Nonetheless, headline risk remains high. Any significant shift in position
with respect to a customs union, second referendum or fixed departure date for
the PM would would market moving.
