Talking Points

Having trouble trading in such volatile market conditions? This may be why.

The United Kingdom decided through referendum to separate from the European Unionon June 23rd. This unprecedented event resulted in extreme market reactions across the board. British Pound crosses, such as GBP/USD and GBP/JPY, experienced record-breaking moves and ranges. Meanwhile, stock indexes such as the Nikkei 225 index, saw daily changes and ranges at scales not seen in years. The charts below show just how much a scar the “Brexit” vote left on the markets in just one day.
