    Default FTSE 250

    Closed on 16,000, up 500 points in a day, a day where the government and opposition are looking like they couldn't organise a nun shoot in a nunnery. Linky

    What were all the Remainers going on about again? Something about UK blah blah Doom and Gloom blah blah Should have Remained etc.

    Can't be arsed digging up some EU/German charts but they're basically all flat lining.

    There's no going back now, we're on the naughty step of Europe Germany and France, to let us back in would send a clear message to any other nations thinking of leaving that the The E.U. Germany and France, are weak and that they have to reform to better consider the needs of it's members diverse spectrum of people.

    Which they aren't and won't. Obviously.

    Didn't someone on another thread here earlier today claim the FTSE 250 doesn't prove a thing Brexit-wise and it's the FTSE 100 one has to look at?

    Well, OK, let's look at the FTSE 100:

    FTSE 100 closes above pre-Brexit level - BBC News

    Wow. To be honest I did expect some negative impact from Brexit at least in the short term. Given the scaremongering I think we all did.

    But this ....

    "It is safe to say that, of all the post Brexit outcomes discussed across the City over the past few months, 'buying frenzy' was not one that was viewed as very likely," said Chris Beauchamp, senior market analyst at spread betting firm IG.
    BBC continues to report through gritted teeth.

    Where is Brexit? It's only Brexit when Article 50 is triggered, right now the markets are hoping that such things won't happen.

    If Johnson wins there won't be a Brexit.

    Exactly.

    Also ...

    - Article 50 can only be triggered by a vote in Parliament.
    - 75% of MPs don't want a Brexit.
    - The rules change in April 2017 - 14 EU member states will have to give permission for the UK to go.

    The markets realise this, hence the rally.
