The UK’s decision to vote to Brexit from the UK has sent shockwaves across the country and the wider world.
The reaction in financial markets was immediate and dramatic, with shares crashing and the Pound (GBP) plummeting to a 30-year low against the US Dollar.
GBP/EUR also dropped from a previous high of 1.31 to a low of 1.20 before stabilising slightly at 1.24.
While some international currency brokers suspended trading ahead of the vote, others are working through the upheaval. Penzance-based broker TorFX has reported seeing record levels of trading activity this morning.
MD, Nigel Fox, said: “We have seen unprecedented levels of trading activity today and had spoken to hundreds of clients even before breakfast. We have extended our opening hours to help as many clients as possible steer a steady course through these volatile waters.”
