INFOGRAPHIC: The post-Brexit decline and fall of sterling

You might like to review your advice poste Brexit. Saxo advised buying Burberry's and Barclays as two outstanding buys. Now you are claiming something else in your narrative.
Peter Garnry Peter Garnry
@goldfinger I said both in writing and video before the Brexit than banks would be worst performing group on a leave and Pharmaceuticals would be the best. However, on the day following the result we were bullish on banks because of the overreaction. So no, we did not recommend Barclays ahead of the vote. In fact on our morning call to clients we said "don't be smart" and keep the exposure low.

Further to Peter's comment, that was the exact phrase we used to headline From the Floor which is the TradingFloor writeup of the Morning Call on the day of the referendum.
