Brexit may dominate factors influencing the pound's fortunes again this week, with the U.K. set to lay out its position in at least three areas of talks with the European Union. Uncertainty about the next round of Britain-EU talks due by month-end could weigh on sterling, which was the worst-performing Group-of-10 currency last week.
