U.S. dollar decreased in late trading on Monday, amid rising British pound, as investors have kept a close eye on a parliamentary vote on four Brexit proposals out of nine later in the day.

Speaker of the British House of Commons John Bercow on Monday chose four Brexit proposals out of nine for lawmakers to vote, which include the British membership of a single market and the customs union.

Lawmakers are expected to vote on in the second round of "indicative vote," which was set to begin at 20:00 BST, and it's intended to see what outcome, if any, commands a majority in the parliament, which has rejected Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal three times since January.

In late New York trading, the euro fell to 1.1211 U.S. dollars from 1.1214 dollars in the previous session, and the British pound rose to 1.3125 dollars from 1.3003 U.S. dollars in the previous session. The Australian dollar was up to 0.7112 dollar from 0.7097 dollar.

The U.S. dollar bought 111.36 Japanese yen, higher than 110.82 Japanese yen of the previous session. The U.S. dollar was up to 0.9989 Swiss franc from 0.9960 Swiss franc, and it fell to 1.3310 Canadian dollars from 1.3355 Canadian dollars. Enditem
