What is “Brexit”?

The referendum vote will take place in the UK to determine whether the British population wishes to maintain their European Union membership, on the 23th of June 2016.

This is a major political event that is expected to impact the financial markets and may result in high volatility, price gaps/spikes, lack of liquidity, widened spreads or other movements in the markets.
