GBP/USD a bag full with cockroaches. Keep away!!!
The pound has fallen in early trading in Asia on Monday, adding to Friday's record one-day decline.
Sterling was trading at $1.3440, down more than 2% from Friday's close. Against the euro it was trading at �1.2165, down 1.3%.
On Friday the pound had its biggest one-day fall against the dollar, at one stage sinking as low as $1.3236.
Some traders are betting that the pound still has further to slide.
Jeremy Cook, chief economist at World First, said: "We are still looking for another 10% fall for the pound against the dollar in the coming months as data confirms the economic slowdown and monetary policy expectations increase."
The pound also fell further against the yen on Monday, a currency considered to be a safe haven, to 137.16 yen - down from about 139.64.
Stock markets also plunged on Friday, with more than $2tn (�1.5tn) wiped off the value of global stock markets, according to Standard and Poor's Dow Jones Indices.

On Friday, when we described the assessment of UBS derivative strategist Rebecca Cheong, who anticipates as much as $150 billion in program and systematic strategy selling in the next 2-3 days, we wondered if the Friday silence from JPM's quant guru meant he was willing to hand over the baton of the market's most prominent prognosticator of quant moves to others. The answer was no, because shortly thereafter Kolanovic chimed in with a note just after the US close, in which he agreed with Cheong and said that the program selling was about to begin, to wit:
As we noted earlier this week, we expected a Brexit outcome to have an asymmetric impact for equities, with downside exacerbated by unwind of long equity investor positioning. In particular, increasing equity volatility would induce systematic strategies (Volatility Targeting, Risk Parity, CTAs) to start deleveraging their high equity exposure, resulting in $100-300 billion of selling.

Turns out that lovely liberal left can be rather violent when they lose. Corbyn just fired 8 ministers! At least 77000 signatures forged (from the vatican to North Korea).
Sydney ACC 15:38 GMT June 26, 2016
Some 39,411 residents of Vatican City, home to Pope Francis, appeared to have signed the petition by Sunday morning, despite the tiny city state having a total population of just 800.
In isolationist North Korea, one of the least internet-connected countries in the world, 23,778 people had apparently gone online to express their frustration at the UK�s decision to quit the EU.
Located 800 miles south east of the Falklands, and with a permanent population of zero, the South Atlantic British Overseas Territory of South Georgia and the Sandwich Islands was responsible for more than 3,000 signatures
That was some 300 more than those coming from the British Antarctic Territory, which though home to some 400 researchers also has no settled population of its own.
Signatories are also recorded in places as far flung as the Caribbean island of Aruba (101), Bermuda (564), China (432), Hong Kong (2,089), Japan (742) Venezuela (24) and the South Pacific Islands of Tuvalu (18), Wallis and Fortuna (8) and Vanuatu (31).
Overall, close to 2.5 million signatures had been added from within the UK by midday on Sunday, making up an overwhelming proportion of the whole.
What is not clear is whether the results recorded are an accurate reflection of the places from which signatures were added.
Savvy internet users could simply have disguised their true locations by using proxy servers to hide their IP addresses.
There have also been suggestions computer coders may have used special script or a 'bot' to generate fake signatures automatically.
Either way, people purportedly living in countries left behind by the vote also appear to have added their name to the petition in significant numbers.
They included 18,734 signatures from France, 11,816 from Spain, 7,031 from Germany, 3,139 from the Netherlands and 2,492 Italians and 4,122 residents of Gibraltar � which came out strongly in favour of Remain in Wednesday's momentous poll.
Some 2,326 Swiss-based supporters backed a second referendum on EU membership, as did 279 residents of Turkey, 3,746 in New Zealand and 11,971 in Australia.

The Mess will arise from foreign policy chaos - both the US and UK have lame duck leaders - the EU is split between those calling for the UK out now and those "hoping" that delay is the better tactic // during the Cold War (e.g., 1956 , 1968) and more recently, divisions between the western allies invited mischief
The economic/financial consequences will be resolved much sooner than the political turmoil

So why did BREXIT happen?!
To me the "obvious" reason why Brexit won is evident. Its all economics, the same as in the States and elsewhere. Years of slow growth have voters saying they have had enough of entrenched and bloated governmental bureaucracies looking out only for themselves. Its a generational time to throw out the bums in Brussels, Washington and all the rest.

So why did BREXIT happen?!
Some of the pundits who explain the "obvious" reasons why the unexpected happend:
1. It was the rebellion of the Coal miners and steel workers who were mad about natural gas.
2.Uri Geller lost his power (true interview)
3. Obama and Merkel poisoned the water.
4. FOREIGN IMMIGRATION--330,000 in 2015 alone who took many jobs from brits. Polling company Ipso Mori found that immigration issues replaced the economic issue as 6/23/16 got closer.
5.Older catholics from the periphery won against younger portestants from the cities.
6. The Germans are worried and blame Merkel
7. Jermy Corbyn.
8. Soros Curse.
You pick your favorite scape goat.

UK = GREECE
Results of referendum will not be implemented and UK will stay in Europe.
What did you expect ?
HK RF@ 06:03 GMT June 26, 2016
Guessing Brexit to happen, was far easier than guessing it implemented or not.
Too many options, strategies, risks and possible modifications standing in front of the politician, that it may not be implemented at all, or if yes than after very long time.
Brexit decision and the following debates on the way to it's implementation, may demolish the EU before article 50 will be triggered.
Thus EU being at stake, may be higher than the UK.
There is no way the EU can push Britain to hurry up in triggering article 50.
UK has now a very strong tool to pressurize the EU to the wall.
That according to Isaac Newton findings:
Just take your time, and the apples will fall into your basket:)

Most say we wont see 2nd one. Some say it is going to take years. But i say we will see one sooner than everyone think. When the big money and rich ones are losing money they will do whatever it takes to get it back including paying for running the second referendum. Buy gbp on dips! That is the only logical play from now on.

IT IS MORE FUN IN THE PHILIPPINES!!!
ISIS to followers in SE Asia: 'Go to the Philippines'
'If you cannot go to [Syria], join up and go to the Philippines,' Malaysian militant Mohd Rafi Udin tells followers. Malaysia's counter-terrorism chief says they expect more attacks in the region.
MANILA, Philippines � The Islamic State (IS, formerly known as ISIS or the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq) has called on its followers in Southeast Asia to fight for the terror group either in Syria or in the Philippines, a recent video showed.
The 20-minute video showed men in military fatigues carrying weapons and holding Islamic State flags, also engaging in gun battles. The video likewise showed the beheading of 3 Caucasian males, believed to be of Iraqi or Syrian descent, according to reports. The militants claim the men were "spies of the crusader alliance."
Reuters reported that a man in the video, identified by Malaysian authorities as Mohd Rafi Udin, said in Malay: "If you cannot go to [Syria], join up and go to the Philippines".
Udin is a Malaysian militant currently in Syria, according to Reuters.
But Philippine military officials dismissed the latest video as propaganda, Reuters reported.
"People should not be bothered by this," Reuters quoted Philippine military spokesman Restituto Padilla as saying. "Authorities are working on this. They can be identified, and they can be hunted down."
But Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay, chief of Malaysia's police counter-terrorism unit, said the video "is not just propaganda, but is a serious threat."
"We are definitely expecting more attacks in this region," Pitchay told Reuters

The EU is a trade zone and - it has run into trouble because of over reach - the English have revealed the problem of SOVEREIGNTY -- the EU can never overcome this because it would require an Empire
The issue of immigration can be resolved if the external borders are shut - this requires FORCE (violence) - the EU does not limit free travel and most nations do not benefit from open borders - the elite don't understand this
The US never had an Open Border Policy - immigrants were only permitted as needed (miners, laborers) and the US had Free Land when it needed ranchers and Farmers
Misunderstanding HISTORY in Europe is as bad as in the US

Referendum rerun! When? Few years from now!!!
The only way to get UK and the EU out of the mud for the time.
The referendum is not binding, so a date for a rerun, may be fixed at any time in the future!!!
Be careful with your trades.
So civil war may be averted for the time.
