    The Brexit issue came under the spotlight in the European trading session.
    Unexpectedly, the United Kingdom and the European Union have finally reached compromise.
    Reportedly, the British and European officials entered into a preliminary agreement
    on the future of the UK's financial companies in the European market.
    Thus, a possibility of striking the final agreement on the divorce procedure increased.
    This news provided support to the British pound.
    The GBP/USD pair added over 2%, hitting the level of 1.2900.
    However, after that the price retreated to the area below 1.12880.
    The manufacturing PMI report put the British currency under pressure.
    In October the reading came in at 51.1 points versus the expected result of 53.
    Besides, the growth eased from the previous month.
    This report was more important to traders than the Bank of England's interest rate decision.
    The outcome of the BOE monetary policy meeting is predictable,
    so it is unlikely to have major impact on the GBP/USD pair.
    Additionally, the euro has also changed the trading bias against its American counterpart.
    The EUR/USD pair added about 80 points amid the weaker greenback.
    Experts anticipate that the euro may reverse by the end of the European session,
    as later in the day the ISM manufacturing report will be release in the United States.
    However, some currency strategists recommend traders to be patient and not make hasty decisions.

This latest agreement will represent 20% of NNPC's total PMS supply under the DSDP arrangement, which basically allows the corporation to exchange crude oil with international oil traders for imported petroleum products over a period of time. Speaking shortly after a brief signing ceremony at the NNPC Towers yesterday, the Group Managing Director of the corporation, Dr. Maikanti Baru, said as the nation's products supplier of last resort, NNPC was committed to products availability by inviting new and old players to play in the Nigerian oil sector. He said over the years, BP had demonstrated the capacity and robustness to augment the forecasted shortfall by NNPC, especially as the winter period approaches and as the nation's elections get underway early into the New Year. "As a reliable supplier, we think BP is a brand that we can always partner with. We trust the company and we have a good relationship with it. We also believe in the company's commitment towards the development of local content," Baru stated. The NNPC helmsman also commended BP for choosing to partner with AYM Shafa, a local oil company, which he said had been expanding its downstream footprints across the nook and cranny of the country. "BP's partnership with AYM Shafa towards delivering on its DSDP obligations makes it a perfect fit for our plans to ensure that there is adequate supply of products throughout the coming Yuletide and even beyond the election period. In AYM Shafa, you are talking of a local company with over 150 retail outlets, depots as well as a good network of trucks nationwide," Baru added. Responding, Mr. John Goodridge, the Head of Marketing & Origination of BP's oil trading business, said it was a great honour for his company to be trusted by the NNPC as one of its strategic suppliers. "We are delighted to have the opportunity to work more closely with the NNPC. Going forward, we hope to grow this mutual relationship to greater things," Goodridge added. He further assured that his company boasts of a global network of refineries capable of generating the products to meet the specifications required by the NNPC. He said the ultimate was to ensure that over the next six months, Nigeria does not witness any products shortages. Introduced in 2016, the DSDP arrangement is a model carried out through direct sales of crude oil to refiners or consultants, who in turn supply NNPC with equivalent worth of products. Since its inception, the DSDP model has not only saved NNPC millions of dollars that would have been paid through demurrage, it has also proven to be a major component of the corporation's petroleum products supply portfolio which ensures stability in products supply nationwide.
