    YouGov Final Survey Predicted Yes: 46% No: 54%

    Raw Count So Far:
    Clackmannanshire YES: 16,350 NO: 19,036,
    Orkney Yes: 4883 No: 10.004
    Shetland YES: 5669 NO: 9951 (Shetland has 0.4 % share - 59.2 % No vote)
    Western Isles YES: 9195 NO: 10.544


    No campaign saying its increasingly confident in winning Fife (7.1 %)

    One report says:
    Faces of the Yes campaigners on the floor of Edinburgh count remind me of fellow man united fans during European cup finals vs Barcelona

    Jack, don't eat all the popcorn mate...

    Yeah, No's totally have it in the bag. The pound continues to base and rally.

    "No" will probably win. Though it doesn't take stuffing too many ballots to "adjust" these types of votes. An unfortunate reality.

    LOL, get updates from http://news.sky.com/. Click on the right "Highlights". The updates there are faster than Sky News Live by few minutes, in certain cases.

    Daily Order Block starts at 1.6540. Shorts at 1.6550 would be tempting, but I'm on the sideline on Cable for today.

    Well that's all the ones I care about.

    At least good sense has prevailed, though I can see the Scot's having to live this strong Yes turnout down for some time.

    I'm off to adjust my Christmas card list. :))

    One very quick trade but there were far better opportunities elsewhere without the drama.

    F*** that pisses me off, i normally look for long set ups inside of Asia, though because i was short cable from NY's high last night, Asia bloody takes it out with a 75 pip rally! i feel like punching something

    i have definitely made up my mind now, about taking all the profits off fiber and cable trades :mad:

    ..or chalk it up as an outlier and remind yourself why you take such trades in the first place. Best done after you find a way to blow off that steam. :)

    If we mess with our plans every time we take it on the chin.. there's no way to remain consistent.

    (Side thought, partial take profits are nice too, helps pay for the risk on the trade and makes you feel like no matter what happens you got something for the setup.)

    A lot of fundamentals could be pointing to a higher Pound including the possible slow increase of interest rates, we could see pound start to price it all in... any thoughts
