Britons Brexit

Against all odds, the UK has voted 52% to 48% to leave the EU. The market followed to this news of Brexit with safe haven assets up and risky ones down. This was bad news for oil since it is likely to lead to a slowing of the world economy and a reduction in oil demand. Brent crumbled from $51.15 to $47.60 per barrel. Conversely, gold rose up from $1,250 to $1,350 per troy ounce.
