EUR/USD Forecast and Trade Ideas for June 23 2016

Previous trading day:

Yesterday`s EUR/USD trading session was marked with some higher volatility supported by news on Brexit referendum and capital flows to equities. Another day of high volatility is ahead as British referendum is finally due today. Whatever polls and estimates are showing at this moment, official results might imply immediate strong market reaction if Britons vote for exit. Although British pound will suffer the most from this move, euro will also follow this scenario against all other currencies. Fed Governor Powell noted today that Fed is ready for any outcome of referendum, while Fed Chair Yellen noted that Fed will not schedule meeting to discuss Brexit outcome. ECB officials previously noted that they will use all policy measures to cope with potential market disruption on vote to exit. How British are going to vote is to be seen today after polls are closed.
