BBC Brexit debate could be a pound mover

The BBC is hosting a massive Brexit debate at 19.00 GMT

The BBC has taken over the Wembley conference centre for what is, by our standards, one of the largest debates ever. Usually such debates are confined to tv studios or regional community centres and theatres. This one is set for an audience of 6000.

The Brexit mob are rolling out the big guns and the biggest, Boris Johnson is top of the bill. He will be up against new London Mayor and remain proponent Sadiq Khan. Both have a team of companions with them.

Being such a big debate it could well be one that moves markets if a strong case is made by any side. Be warned though, if there is a strong view from either side, we may not see the real move until London gets in tomorrow morning. That may present a trading opportunity if there's big news but markets don't move.

I'll be watching it (probably through clenched teeth) and if I get a chance, I'll try and post any comments or views of importance. Other than that, I'll prep the other boys to keep their eyes peeled.
