A ‘Yes’ vote – low turnout of Italians will vote for a change/reform. It won’t be a populist revolt like Brexit or The Donald. Furthermore,  a ‘No’ vote would be euro-bearish, a ‘yes’ vote euro-bullish.

Monday market opening: Italian banks become biggest fallers

European stocks should open significantly higher on a "surprise" yes vote. Italian banks will be biggest fallers on a 'No' vote.

ECB is likely to extend its asset purchase program whichever way the vote goes. Paradoxically, a lower euro after a 'No' vote would make it easier for the ECB to reach its inflation target because of higher import prices.

CMC Markets' recommendation for traders 

Traders should take extra precautions in terms of risk management to allow for greater potential volatility.
