Kitco News

LONDON, March 14 (Reuters) - Goldman Sachs said it sees a 60 percent probability of British Prime Minister Theresa May getting her deal to exit the European Union ratified after parliament on Wednesday rejected the option of a no-deal Brexit. The new estimate is an increase from 55 percent, which was set on Wednesday. The bank said it still sees a "considerable" chance that Brexit will be reversed through a second referendum. Its subjective odds are at 35 percent.

The bank reduced the probability of a no-deal Brexit further to 5 percent from 10 percent.
