Talk about Brexit topple the pound sterling by 1.8%

  • And
  • +A

Coherence on the UK exit from the EU was not from the beginning. In 2016, when 23 of June, passed a vote, was 51.9 per cent and 48.1%. That is, the difference amounted to only 3.8%. Turnout for the referendum was 72% (about 30 million). Whether at that time all voting clear understanding of the prospects of the UK economy after this fateful decision? No. Now, despite the fact that half a year has passed, clarity, and consistency no population (why was the wishes of the organization of the new referendum), or politicians who take part in the vote.
Because until that sharp statements of politicians renouncing their positions against the background of the project Brexit perceived as critical for the future Brexit is not worth it. This is one of the stages of project approval. Another issue for exchange-traded assets.
Yesterday at this event, the pound-dollar lost in the global arena 1.8%, the GBPCAD fell by 2.3%, GBPCHF slipped by 1.65%. But the index of great Britain FTSE 100 fell 0.26% and the FTSE was 1.3%. The negative trend in assets in the UK is logical and not surprising – it continues throughout 2018. Then there is the question of Brexit, it was immediately clear that will not to resolve, quickly and easily. For the pound, the prospect of an additional reduction is on the order of 4-6%.
For the Russian market, the prospects of relations of Russia and great Britain the question of Brexit is not critical and significant. Now in the political arena much more important factor in all sectors are the US.
Note that after several months of negotiations, the UK and the EU have developed a draft agreement on Brexit. It outline how much money the UK needs the EU (about 39 billion pounds), what happens to the border in Northern Ireland and what is happening to British citizens living in other EU countries and EU citizens living in the UK. It also proposes a method of avoiding the return of the physical boundaries of Northern Ireland.
Including was agreed a separate and much shorter draft statement on future relations. To win more time, the two sides agreed to a 21-month “transitional” period to smooth the transition period after Breccia. This document, again, the Cabinet of great Britain discussed on Wednesday, November 15.
