The Bremain camp is just worried that their families will have to get visas and that the UK might actually do well without the EU. I remember when football clubs actually had players from where the team was located. Now there are all sorts of players from all over the globe playing in the EPL, which seems counterintuitive. British football should be a representation of and have British talent. The Bremain camp can only use fear tactics to say the GBP might drop in value. Cameron is just worried he will have to resign if the Brexit happens. He spent £9,000,000 mailing pamphlets for the Bremain campaign. What a waste of taxpayer money. The prime minister should not be openly for or against the Brexit.

Even if the pound falters for a little while it will find its footing and increase in value again. When the fear mongering has been proven to have no merit, the pound will soar.

I agree with your GBP forecast. If they exit, GBP should drop further. But not too much for the EUR.
I think on exit GBP drops another 10-15%, then stabilize. Global markets will drop, possibly UK more then the rest.

Economic impact will be biggest for the UK, since they will have to setup extra trade agreements etc. The lover GBP should give the UK an edge though and this would probably mean a buying opportunity in FTSE.

Any drop in equity markets on exit will be temporary in my view. I think the economic impact is not that significant. It's mainly a political issue. Any economic links currently existing will be put back to work through trade agreements.

If no exit > GBP back up 5% initially and gradually another 5%. Stock market might jump from relieve, but not significantly. Any jump over 2% should backtrack...

I just think it's not that big of a deal... main problem arising from exit will be visa related and some extra temporary issues on trade.

Additionally, a cheaper GBP should make trade and business in the UK more attractive. I think it will be a win the for the economy.

The UK has a negative current account deficit in BoP and has done for almost a century.

The service sector and finance contributes but does not quite balance the books.

So anyone who thinks £terling will strengthen after a little dip is walking on hype of air.


Recently, the out-camp has been rubbishing the many articles explaining how the UK will most certainly will be impacted in a very negative way. IMF, Oxford Economics, Government analysis, the CBI and Mr Carney at the BoE. We are told these established reputable bodies are all out to scare us.

One crack-head said UK will benefit from lack of regulation when out from the EU!!!

Let's think about this for one short second. There is the EU block with a massive pot of disposable income. So if the UK wishes to continue trading with the EU, then it will still need to adhere to those standards and conditions with a tarriff slapped on it.

Then the UK can go away and engineer unilateral trade agreements with all the other countries.

The rational and reasoning for the economic argument is just crazy imo.

Political implications may have some limited argument for due consideration around sovereignty but it is an ineffectual minor one of no consequence imho. That's about it.

Self serving crooks in Parliament who want to play with their little games

Haven't traded for the whole week during the brexit however it could be a good idea of shorting GBP for making some good profits while EU referendum.
