Investment Week LogoSterling volatility has reached a six-year high as the EU referendum looms, while nearly all other volatility measures are also climbing, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices. The implied volatility of the CME/CBOE FX GBP Volatility index rose by a third compared to last month to 15.79, as the June referendum date came within the one month reference period for the sterling’s volatility measure.
