UK referendum on EU membership – possible market volatility

Voting in the UK's Brexit referendum takes place on Thursday 23rd June 2016. The result should be known early on Friday, between 4am and 5am London time (GMT+1).

High volatility is possible in all financial markets. That may cause trading spreads to widen between buy and sell prices, particularly during Asian and early European hours on Friday.

If gold and silver prices fluctuate sharply, the gap between buying and selling prices on BullionVault's live Order Board may become wider than normal. Please exercise caution if you choose to trade in a period of high volatility.

Besides the live Order Board, you can buy or sell at the benchmark Daily Price as published by the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA). Read more about the Daily Price.
