A poll published while  voting is underway shows a  slightly wider  majority for the No Thanks  campaign on Scotland: 53% against 47% for Yes. This is an  IPSOS-Mori poll for the Evening Standard. A previous poll for the same company showed a narrow  majority of only 51% against 51%. It is important to note that this poll excludes the undecideds.

GBP/USD is trading higher, around 1.6330, totally erasing the  FOMC related slide. 1.6335 is resistance – it twas the previous high. 1.6250 is support.

When results are in, the pair is likely to trade at even wider ranges.
