Currently, I think political interests trump economic ones.

My guess is that there will be no meaningful deal right until the 2 year deadline until:

- both sides panic and agree a temporary free trade deal to buy time for further talks (my bet)
- talks fail in acrimony and there is a full hard break
The 2 year deadline is to agree the terms of the "divorce"; there is no common view as to whether that includes discussions on free trade or will "simply" concentrate on untangling the various legal relationships, finances, planning, etc.
