THE British pound is ‘crashing’ after a new ICM Guardian poll put the Leave campaign ahead.
The Tuesday afternoon poll revealed 52% of people are backing Brexit, compared to just 48% wanting to stay.
The result sent jitters through currency traders who immediately began selling off Sterling.
It has dropped by more than 0.6% against the dollar.
Traders are planning for huge negative impacts in the case of a Brexit.
Joe Rundle of ETX Capital told press last week: “We’re planning for a 20% fall in sterling and a 20% rise in the dollar, so a 40% move.”
The British public go to the polls on June 23.
