Market overview: Sterling battling but Berenberg hikes Brexit risk

1147: Economists at Berenberg have raised their risk of a Brexit from 30% to 40% after a slew of opinion polls suggested the balance of voters who want to stay in the EU versus those who want to leave the union has tipped even further in favour of 'Leave'. The German bank's poll tracker for the UK’s EU referendum currently indicates a three point lead for Leave as both the online polls and the telephone polls have now shifted towards a Brexit indication. They note that sterling volatility is currently 30% above its highest point during the 2008/09 financial crisis. Sterling is up from its day's low against the dollar to 1.4168, still a fall of 0.7% on the day.
