On Thursday an important referendum will take place in the UK to decide if Britain will leave or remain in the European Union. The so-called “Brexit” – a word that combines Britain and exit – is the possible outcome of a referendum where UK citizens will decide what they want to do with their country.
In words of Prime Minister David Cameron: “It is time for the British people to have their say. It is time to settle this European question in British politics.”
Some citizens think that Britain is being held back by the EU, which they say enforces hard rules on business and charges billions of pounds fees. David Cameron defends the idea of staying in the EU. Big business companies stand as well stand up to stay in the European Union because it’s easier to move money and products beyond British borders.
As a Forex trader, you might wonder: what effect does the referendum have (and will have) on the Pound, the Euro and other currencies?

We’d like to share some news about our Live Video channel with you today.
If you are a regular of our Live Video channel, you know that Dale Pinkert has been a pillar of this project that started in June 2013 with the “Live Analysis Room“. Since then, Dale has been every day on his show, for two hours, providing market analysis, helping our community of traders and interviewing tens of markets professionals. After many shows and months of constant commitment to FXStreet’s community, Dale Pinkert decided to put an end to his popular show. We wish him the best in his future endeavours: a skilled trader and veteran of the markets as Dale will surely find great projects to work on and keep helping others.

Valeria Bednarik is FXStreet’s Chief Analyst. Most of you certainly read her analysis every day. Still, you might not know her very well. She is presenting a new weekly show on our Live Video channel, “Valeria Bednarik’s Forex Highlights”, every Tuesday at 11h30 GMT / 6:30 am EST, and we have made this short interview with her, as we’ve done with all the speaker of our new TV!
My first question is straightforward… Do you trade for a living?
Not anymore. I did however, for many years, but now I’m more interested in longer term investments rather than intraday trading. I do trade, but not regularly as I have also other occupations that fulfill my life.

To start with, Ian… Do you trade for a living?
Yes, I am active in the markets on a daily basis.

Dr S. Sivaraman is probably the longuest running contributor of FXStreet, providing his forecast the beginnings on our website. And he has been presenting webinars on FXStreet for more than 10 years now. Very recently, he moved from webinars on Webex to shows in our Live Video Youtube Channel. He still presents the same: market analysis and forecast during the Asian session based on the algorythm he developed. That is twice per week: on Monday for trading calls and forecasts and on Friday for a review. Make the acquaintance of Dr S. Sivaraman with our interview!
Dr Sivaraman, please tell us who you are in a few words.

Nick Batsford is the host of “TipTV”, a show that has been recently added to FXStreet’s Live Video Channel. Nick receives professional traders and advisers every day to offer tips and trading ideas across multiple investment betting instruments. We wanted to know more about him and his show, that has been existing for more than two years now.
Nick, can you tell us a bit about yourself?
Well, for a start my name is Nick ‘The Moose’ Batsford, and one of the most common questions I get asked is why I’m known as The Moose. The answer is that it’s a nickname from when I was a broker and you will need to take me to a court of law before I spill the beans on why.

Dale Pinkert has been the host of the Live Analysis Room for 2 years and a half now – more than 540 editions already! The format of his daily show has changed througout the months, but his particular and utterly friendly style hasn’t. His personality, together with his very long experience in the markets (he sometimes refers to himself as a “dinosaur”), are the ingredients that have built a strong community of traders, who share and exchange views every day. And of course, another basic component of his successful program are the live interviews that he conducts every single day with traders, economists and analysts of varied backgrounds. That’s every weekday at 13:00 – 15:00 GMT (9:00 – 11:00 EST).
We wanted to know more about him, so you also would know him better. Here are his answers.
Let’s start from beginning… How did your career in trading start?
