U.K. parliament vote due Saturday

The British pound surged but then turned lower on concern Boris Johnson won't have the votes to pass a Brexit deal he agreed with the European Union.

The pound rose as high as $1.2987 before turning lower.

Stephen Innes, market strategist at AXI Trader, said the rejection by the DUP may also lead to hard-line Conservatives in Johnson's own party rejecting the deal. "Suggesting, that in a minority government, 18 is a lot of votes to pick up and could be a bridge too far, especially amid speculation that most of those voters are pushing for a second referendum," he said.

Gains for U.K.-listed stocks were more tempered, perhaps reflecting the short covering that already happened last week.

U.K. banks Barclays (BARC.LN) , the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS.LN) and Lloyds Banking Group (LLOY.LN) each rose, but registered gains of less than 2%.

The FTSE 100 gained 0.85% to 7228.16.
