Voting Day polls show Bremain with 52% – GBP/USD touches

Sky News voting day poll by YouGov shows 52% Remain, 48% Leave. It is a large sample  of 5000 voters. This more or less confirms the most recent polls. Nigel  Farage seems to have accepted a loss but IDS says it’s still to close to call.

Extreme  volatility follows, with GBP/USD making an attempt on 1.50 without a breakout. EUR/USD went above resistance at 1.1410  but retreats.  

Update:  UK leaves the EU – it is official – expect more crashes

Update:  GBP/USD > 1.50 on Sun concession, new poll

Voting has ended  in the UK after a long and tense day in which markets did not sleep at all. These are opinion polls held on the day of the vote, asking previous interviewees  what they voted. These are NOT  massive exit polls that we usually have on regular elections.

An hour before voting ended we had a jump in the pound – it may have been related to reports of a high turnout in Scotland, a place where Remain can gain, and also perhaps on rumors related to those elusive hedge funds polls. They may or may not exist.

After taking a short course about forex. Like many forex traders, I've earned a significant share of my knowledge the hard way. Macroeconomics, the impact of news on the ever-moving currency markets and trading psychology have always fascinated me.

Given this background, forex software has a relatively bigger share in the posts.
