ING infograph on outcomes and possible effect on eurusd and bonds. 

Did see a report yesterday that said if the Brexit party comes in as per some of the more favourable polls that they could top Germany's CDU as the largest single party in the European parliament, eurusd to 1.08?

Center left and right parties look to be in trouble as interim results start to come in.

The #AfD could become the strongest party in #Brandenburg at the #2020 European Election. This is the interim result after 2,181 counties out of a total of 3,811. (As of 19:15)

So both Labour and the Conservatives humble by the 4 week old Brexit party and the Lib-Dems.

Across the EU there is a broad shift towards the more nationalist parties. The big center left and center right alliance that has ruled for 40 years looks broken and the calls for new general elections getting louder for many nation states.

Interesting but uncertain times ahead. Currency markets not too concerned as yet

As mentioned in the first link Bremen often has it's finger on the pulse so doesn't bode well for the centralists.

The CDU also lost it's top spot as being the largest single party in the EU Parliament to the UK's Brexit party.

    • yes they will be on less charts but I understand your point about the size of the moves in ftse, no harm in trialing them though you might find marking out the immediate prior high and low has more relevance.  
    • Yeah, I keep an eye on volume, that's why it's showing at the bottom of my chart However, I haven't been able to discover a strong relation between volume spikes and trend direction. Sometimes I see orders of the magnitude of 10-20k and the chart doesn't do anything special. Other times you see just average volume and the chart does huge turnarounds. For example what happened at 8.30 with that spike down and then going straight back up and making new highs vs previous candle? All happened on low volume
    • @jameswalker1 my recommendation is trade the demo account to get a better understanding of the costs associated. I traded demo for nearly 2 years before placing my first real trade. It will save you in the long run to get a better understanding of the costs involved.
