An opinion poll carried out by Ipsos MORI for the newspaper Evening Standard, has shown that the number of UK output opponents of the EU have 52% compared with 48% "leave" supporters.


The second survey, conducted by ComRes for the Daily Mail newspaper and television channel ITV, showed the advantage of remain camp - 48% against 42%.

Investors fear that the withdrawal from the EU will have dramatic consequences on the world's stocks, bonds and currencies, in particular the pound, which, according to the predictions of some analysts, may fall by 15%.

Reuters reported on Thursday that the G7 financial leaders are going to make a statement, which underlined its readiness to take all necessary measures to calm markets in the event of Brexit.

Rating agency Standard and Poor's said on Thursday that the credit rating of the UK will soon be reduced if the country will vote for the exit from the EU.
