The close call on voting is still apparent as Scots line up at the polling booths and keep the markets waiting. Currencies, stocks in Scottish companies, even commodities are all in suspense as those north of the border cast their votes for independence or staying in the UK.
In the recent past, the build-up to the Scottish referendum has played on the markets. As Bloomberg's figures report, "The pound appreciated 0.5 percent to 78.66 pence per euro at 1:50 p.m. London time after touching to 78.54 pence, the strongest level since August 2012. The U.K. currency gained 0.6 percent to $1.6370, having touched $1.6381, the most since Sept. 4."
The effects on traders in EUR/GBP and GPD/USD are enormous as volatility rules when indecision exposes positions.
Only one night left to wait.
