Here are the key highlights I have picked form 8 hours of BBC coverage of the EU Referendum count that started shortly after 10pm as YouGov’s poll effectively gave the referendum to REMAIN on 52% against LEAVE on 48% which even prompted Nigel Farage to effectively concede defeat at around 10.15pm, sending sterling soaring to its highest level against the dollar for 2016, and also triggering a sharp FTSE stock futures rally, which I will cover in-depth in an accompanying video on trading sterling and FTSE during brexit, until then here are the highlights of what happened after the polls closed on Thursday 23rd of June.
Key points to note whilst watching are –
1. YouGov poll gave the referendum to REMAIN at 52% to 49% for LEAVE.
2. Sterling and stock futures soared in anticipation of a REMAIN win.
3. Nigel Farage early on effectively conceded that REMAIN had one
4. The book makers also heavily discounting a REMAIN win, where even the likes of Alex Salmond mentioned that Betfair had been giving long odds of 14-1 on LEAVE.
Which is set against my forecast conclusion as of 12th of June on the basis of a year long analysis of more than 120 articles and more than a dozen videos that LEAVE would win the referendum on a forecast 51.3% against 48.7% for REMAIN that resulted in trading and betting strategies going into the polls that I will cover the outcomes of in my next comprehensive video.
