With more than half of the local counting areas in the UK referendum having now declared their results, the odds of a UK Brexit are increasing.

The markets aren’t liking it. Not one bit.

Leave currently leads Remain by over 500,000 votes with 52% of the vote.

Here’s the scoreboard. It’s carnage, especially in the GBP/USD.
