There’s been little sign of a flow of money into safe havens like gold, the Japanese Yen and the Swiss Franc so far Monday despite the independence referendum in Spain’s Catalonia region at the weekend and the associated violence.
While the Euro has fallen a little, as have Spanish stocks and Spanish government bond prices, the US Dollar has benefited from talk of a more hawkish replacement for Janet Yellen at the head of the US Federal Reserve.
