NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tradebird, the new social app for traders and the voice of the markets, today announced the results of a survey on the potential British exit from the European Union. A sample of European traders with experience levels ranging from professional to amateur revealed that traders who closely follow global markets believe a Brexit would negatively impact markets and therefore oppose the potential Brexit.
Tradebird and Trading 212 users were surveyed on the following:
- The global and local effects on markets should a Brexit occur
- The instruments they believe will be most affected
- If they would vote yes or no to a Brexit
The survey data shows an increasing opposition to a Brexit in finance and economic-minded Europeans:
- 45% of users oppose the Brexit
- 56% fear volatility in global markets
- 45% fear volatility in UK markets
Despite fears that a Brexit will negatively affect UK and global markets uniformly, users believe that a Brexit will affect forex instruments the most:
- 56% of users believe forex will be most affected, while only 24% believe stocks will be most affected
The results of the Tradebird survey reveal the potential direction the markets may go should a Brexit occur, according to financially-focused global citizens that monitor the markets daily through social trading apps. With this information in mind, Tradebird users can continue to share and discuss the most relevant and up-to-the-moment information on what’s happening in the markets now and make informed decisions using the actionable insights they gain on Tradebird.
“As the vote draws closer and British voters lean toward approving the Brexit, this survey reveals a potential tension between financially-focused global citizens and British voters,” comments Ivan Ashminov, founder and CEO of Tradebird. “The Tradebird community is hyper-focused on this potential market flash point and we invite the trading industry to contribute to our new social network.”
