Glad to hear that you are so optimistic. Maybe it is just in my area of work that things are much slower.

I help large companies manage their portfolios of project and resources.

I voted to stay for many reasons. I know that the EU needs to be reformed but I think it owuld be better to reform it from within rather than to get out and have to duplicate much of the framework on our own.

My kids really wanted to be part of Europe and stay in the EU and so that had a big impact on my decision to vote to remain.

A report from The Telegraph has caused GBP to pump 50 or so pips higher that the UK is prepared to be tied to the EU customs union beyond 2021. Nothing confirmed but it has caused a mini spike. Story here.

Just caught this on livesqwauk before leaving which seems to be the reason behind the 40 pip drop on GBPUSD:

Rumours circulating Boris Johnson is stepping down, pure hearsay but a swift 20-25 pip sell off in GBPUSD. The reason I have stayed out of GBP for today.

Such simple tweets are providing 40-50 pip spikes in seconds on GBP. Tough to trust what to believe!

PM May has been running round like a headless chicken trying to get 'assurances' on her deal to sway lawmakers to pass it later on today. However, the markets and indeed the betting markets suggest an overwhelming majority will vote it down.

Reuters running an article.

It's hard to fathom what's going on in the UK with the absolute circus that is Brexit. However, Nigel Farage to me, talks a lot of sense.
