British Prime Minister Theresa May signed the EU divorce papers on Tuesday.
Brexit has officially begun as foreign exchange response seems to be muted as both the pound and euro traded off slightly against the dollar. US equities and bonds were also nonplussed by the much-anticipated move by the Brits.

Now May has to deal with the Scots wanting independence to rejoin the EU.
