Sterling surged above $1.38 for the first time since the results of Britain's vote to leave the European Union on Monday, as the dollar weakened broadly and on hopes that other EU members would seek a relatively œsoft Brexit.

The pound posted its biggest jump in four months against the dollar on Friday, on a media report that the Netherlands and Spain were open to a deal for Britain to remain as close as possible to the trading bloc crushed short positions.

Officials from those countries later denied the report. But market-watchers say the dialogue around Britain™s exit from the bloc has in general turned more positive for Britain.

Sterling traded as high as $1.3819 on Monday, up 0.6 percent on the day and marking a climb of almost 4 U.S. cents since Thursday.

The pound was 0.1 percent down against a euro that was trading at three-year highs, with the pound changing hands at 88.89 pence per euro.
