With the shockwaves of the unexpected outcome of the Brexit vote having now died down, and the doom-mongers quieted, markets are showing that this situation is now being perceived as a great opportunity.
For example, the pound is strengthening again, the cost of borrowing has reduced due to an interest rate cut, house prices are up 8.4% on the same period last year, the tourism trade is booming, and negotiations on Brexit will not even begin for at least a year, with a view to 2019 at the earliest.
