tomorrow eurgbp will drag higher the euro. but then they will sell the euro off as they realise a uk-less eu makes for a weaker eu and that will be reflected in part by the euro.
a better explaination. turnover in fx is getting lower all the time. they need high volatility to keep up profits. why just take euro down when you can take it up first then down.
dc CB 20:35:45 GMT - 02/21/2016
But will that boost the Euro....or will it all go to the USD and the Yen...dragging down the Euro across the board?

boris, the london major, backing brexit is a game changer although maybe a forced hand. cameron is stepping down at the end of this term and its either him or osbourne to take over as top man. it may be a calculated risk by sitting on the other side of the fence to osbourne. boris is known to be more for returning powers to the uk while osbourne more of a europhile. uk staying in the eu probably means osbourne taking over after some scuffling. if theres a brexit, cameron will have to fall on his sword and then the "winner" boris (vs the eu backing osbourne) will be favourite to take over as tory mp's are going to be want to be seen backing the horse that won the last race.
either way, its bad news for the stay camp and for gbp nearterm.

In a move that will electrify the referendum campaign, Mr Johnson decided to back a “Brexit” despite personal appeals from Mr Cameron to support his position.
Mr Johnson said that he had decided to act because the European "political project" was "in danger of getting out of proper democratic control".
Good or Bad man Boris ?

Boris Johnson backs LEAVE campaign
Boris Johnson has joined the campaign to leave the European Union, putting himself at loggerheads with David Cameron and George Osborne.
The Mayor of London emailed the Prime Minister yesterday to inform him of his decision but he only confirmed by text message just nine minutes before his public statement today.

maybe just as well Boris doing a favor

"The prospect of linking arms with Nigel Farage and George Galloway and taking a leap into the dark is the wrong step for our country and if Boris, and if others, really care about being able to get things done in our world then the EU is one of the ways in which we get them done," Cameron said.
"I would say to Boris what I say to everybody else, which is that we will be safer, we will be stronger, we will be better off inside the EU," Cameron told the BBC.
Is that a physical threat to Boris - wonder what Boris is being promised in private.

Well, UK PM Cameron emerged from the EU summit on Friday with concessions in hand and called for a June 23 referendum on Brexit.
