Meanwhile UK chief economost of Citi Group Michael Saunders wrote, "Until now, the Brexit side has lacked the backing of one of the heavyweight figures in UK politics. That has now changed with the backing of (Justice Secretary Michael) Gove and, in particular, Johnson."
United Kingdom will hold the referendum to vote whether Britain should stay in EU or leaving the union on June 23. Based on the opinion polls, citizens are divided over the issue, while there are large numbers of voters still undecided.
UBS economist David Tinsley wrote in his note, "From a market perspective, the most likely barometer of uncertainty is the currency, and... we believe there is significant further downside potential for sterling in the build up to the vote."
Meanwhile Prime Minister David Cameron made his remarks to remain in the union. As quoted by CNN he said, "Britain will be out of the parts of Europe that do not work for us -- we will be permanently and legally protected from being a part of an ever-closer union."
