Brexit Links


The market showed that it can get expectations wrong. Market was expecting U.K to vote in favour of staying - the market ripped higher the night before the vote - and to see a complete reversal, with FTSE getting slayed and SP500 also falling 3.5%. Whilst the single day market reaction was the worst in a long time, the key thing to watch is for whether the sentiment will continue in risk assets - a continued sell-off; and the obvious central bank response. Given central banks are already at negative rates in the euro; we might see a return of LTRO and potentially helicopter money. These actions are most likely to put a floor in the marekts again. If central banks step in heavily to stop systematic panic selling then it would be good to start setting up positions within the next few weeks.
