Trading Conditions Ahead of Italian Constitutional Referendum 20162016-12-01
This Sunday, 4th of December, we are expecting one of the most significant European political events – Italian Constitutional Referendum. Italian citizens will decide whether they want to change the organization of the Parliament or to reject the reforms, proposed by Italian Prime Minister, Matteo Renzi.
Post-referendum scenarios suggest that a ‘No’ vote can provoke a new bank crisis in Europe, cause political instability and panic among investors.
Due to heightened risks for the banking sector, the referendum is expected to have a significant impact on financial markets, including intense volatility, price gaps/spikes, illiquid periods, widened spreads or other unforeseen movements in the markets.
