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.

    • @Foxy No you cant just trade anything, its licenced, i believe there are 61 pairs/markets that the program can trade in. Each Pair has a retail price of $3300inc but i never paid that, i got my initial 5 pairs for $5500. For my $15K i got another 20 pairs, this time including Gold, and a couple of Index's.
    • If one was unsure about investing in specific funds and trusts then they could consider constructing an ETF portfolio based on these technology themes. The potential is there for higher returns on specialist funds and trusts due to stock picking and capital allocation strategies. However, an ETF, will be a lower cost option but not necessarily a better performing one.
    • Now I have openly shared that I have invested in Bitcoin via XBT Provider One in the SEK (Swedish Krona) currency as I am not sure what the future for the Euro holds with Brexit uncertainty and what any hard Brexit implications may be for other EU Member States. However, you can invest in this in EUR currency too. The same applies for in Ether as well. It now offers ETN's for XRP and Litecoin.  There is also the Grayscale Bitcoin Investment Trust which is trading at a premium but if Bitcoin does well then this too could flourish for investors. This product is more for investing in Bitcoin rather than trading it. It presents a great way for an someone to gain exposure to Bitcoin in their portfolio without having to either physically acquire it and opening a Crypto Wallet, etc. or trading it. I believe nearly 3/4 of the demand from investors investing in this trust is from institutional investors including hedge funds based on the first quarter of 2019.
