Pt. Solid Gold Berjangka ~ Pertanyaan terbesar bagi para pedagang pound mungkin telah terjawab, tapi prospek untuk mata uang sangat suram dari sebelumnya.

Sterling turun 1,7 persen menjadi $ 1,3445 pada pukul 09:03 pagi di Tokyo, Senin. Memperpanjang penurunan 8,1 persen yang belum pernah terjadi sebelumnya pada hari Jumat, yang hampir dua kali lipat penurunan 4,1 persen pada Black Wednesday di tahun 1992, ketika Inggris dipaksa keluar dari mekanisme nilai tukar Eropa.

Pound melemah terhadap semua mata uang dunia setelah Pemilu Inggris memilih untuk meninggalkan Uni Eropa, mendorong pound ke level terendah terhadap greenback sejak 1985. Investor menghadapi bulan ketidakpastian – mekanisme dan ketentuan keluarnya Inggris belum ditentukan, dan kepemimpinan politik negara tersebut selama negosiasi tidak jelas setelah Perdana Menteri David Cameron mengumumkan pengunduran dirinya.(Solid Gold)

The big question for pound traders may have been answered, but the outlook for the currency is murkier than ever.

Sterling dropped 1.7 percent to $1.3445 at 9:03 a.m. in Tokyo on Monday. That extended an unprecedented 8.1 percent tumble on Friday, which was almost double the 4.1 percent decline on Black Wednesday in 1992, when the U.K. was forced out of Europe�s exchange-rate mechanism. Futures on the FTSE 100 Index slid more than 3 percent as they opened Monday.

The pound weakened against all the worldâ��s currencies after Britain voted to leave the European Union, pushing it to the lowest level since 1985 versus the greenback. Investors face months of uncertainty — the mechanics and terms of the U.K.â��s exit are yet to be determined, and the nationâ��s political leadership during the negotiations is unclear after Prime Minister David Cameron announced his resignation. Scotland is agitating for independence and the opposition Labour Party has been thrown into chaos.
