The Sterling Digest, 15 September 2014: ref talk

aye or die!

Manifest destiny?

Of course, the only thing still on the wire is the Scottish referendum. But the Scots stand to rock the world as secessionists everywhere get emboldened by the possibility of independence. Naturally, the referendum polls are just as emotional as the voters they reflect. Sterling spiked to new weekly lows across the board as the Yes vote took lead last weekend. Then the No vote moved ahead as the trading week unfolded and sterling surged big time right back to familiar highs in all the GBP pair majors. Headed into the actual election this week, expect price to actually weaken as buyers take profit and sellers take advantage of the recent highs. Even with the Bank of England set to make a monetary policy announcement, all eyes this week are on the referendum vote. Friday, the day after the vote, will be the most interesting trading day of the week and may set the tone for the rest of the year.
