When will we find out the result?. . It's most likely to be between 6.30am and 7.30am the morning following the referendum, Friday 19 September, although this is an unofficial estimate. I spoke to the Chief Counting Officer Mary Pitcaithly, and she said "breakfast time" was most likely, but doesn't want to be more specific than that. It's unlikely to be in the early hours, what with the volume of ballots, particularly postal votes, and what Scotland's Electoral Management Board vaguely describes as "current processes". There will be an overnight count, which will begin immediately following the close of polls at 10pm on Thursday 18 September. The number of people registered to vote is 4,285,323, the largest electorate ever in Scotland for an election or referendum.

To all you guys saying something is wrong with the GBP ,you can not be more wrong ,the problem is with you get rid of your emotions of greed and fear and trade logically ,if you can do this you join the less than 10% consistently withdrawing money from the Forex market .

And for the ones asking people where the price will go.... If you externalize the choice, you are trying to externalize responsibility. Doesn't work like that ;]. And we cannot vote it up or down by posting;] Don't be sheep, eh.
