Financial markets have taken a big hit, made worse as they were priced for a Remain win, however as I write we have seen some recovery.

The FTSE 100 is actually higher than it was last week, to give some perspective.

In some respects nothing changes yet as Article 50 needs to be invoked to start the two year countdown - but this seems unlikely to happen until Cameron leaves in October.

Much negotiations to go on, but we are in a global world, there are plenty of other problems to worry about!

We need to stay calm, business is used to dealing with change, unless you think this is the end of capitalism, crisis bring opportunity and those with cash should start putting it to use over the next few days.
