Britons decided to LEAVE European Union. After results financial markets plunged, where every asset class had been influenced. British pound and euro were significantly hit by this decision, as expected. Immediately after results EUR/USD reached 1.09 level, but shortly returned to levels around 1.11. British pound lost 11% in value during just one day. This was immediate market reaction, however, longer term consequences of this decision in terms of recession are to be seen and priced by market. As previously noted by OECD experts, it is expected that EU economy will plunge by 1% through Y2018. EU is already struggling to generate both growth and inflation, and the outcome of this referendum is not something that EU economy needed at this moment. On the other side, UK decision to leave made some analysts to impose a question on possibility that some other EU members might follow UK path, which is, at this moment, scenario that could additionally and significantly hurt euro further.
