US on Scottish Independence
Today 00:02
LOS ANGELES, Sept 17 (Reuters) - The United States will closely follow the Scottish independence vote on Thursday because it has potentially big economic consequences, a top Obama administration official said.

"We think a strong, united UK is important as the UK has been one of our best and most reliable partners for a very long time," Treasury Secretary Jack Lew told students on Wednesday.

"It's an internal debate within the UK right now but obviously there are potentially significant economic ramifications," he said.

"We're all watching with great interest what happens tomorrow." (Reporting by Tim Reid in Los Angeles and Jason Lange in Washington; Editing by Sandra Maler

YouGov Scottish Poll
Today 00:00
EDINBURGH, Sept 17 (Reuters) - Supporters of keeping Scotland in the United Kingdom have a four percentage point lead, the biggest opinion survey of the campaign showed just hours before Scots vote in an independence referendum.

The poll, for the Times and Sun newspapers, showed Scottish support for staying in the United Kingdom on 52 percent with Scottish support for independence on 48 percent, excluding undecideds who number 6 percent of voters.

YouGov said the poll showed men were much more supportive of independence while most women broadly supported staying in the United Kingdom. YouGov questioned 3,237 voters between Sept. 15 and 17. (Reporting by Alistair Smout, editing by Guy Faulconbridge)

Absolutely, EZglide. I'm totally mystified at the thinking / strategy behind that. No matter how good the horse was, can you imagine a bookie paying out your winnings BEFORE the race even started?!
What the hell would be the thinking? After all, the bookie would HAVE to pay out on a win anyway and yet the race just might prove to be an upset and save him a wodge of dosh. Bonkers.

Don't understand why Betfair would pay out early the result s still unknown and incidentally they are still offering odds of 1.2 ( 1-5 in old money) on a No vote

Can see a sleepless night tomorrow …

My plan was to open both short and long positions before close tomorrow with tight guaranteed stops and let the best one win on Friday. Scuppered. But maybe the result will get delayed beyond 8:00 … Am off to pub to think about Plan B … GLA!

Bookies are never wrong...
Online bookmaker Betfair says it has already paid some of its customers backing a "No" vote in Thursday's referendum on Scottish independence.

The firm said it had paid out a "substantial six figure sum" despite polls suggesting the result is close.

"We've decided that 'no' is most likely to be the winning vote in 3 days' time, so we've put our money where our mouth is," Betfair said.

It said betting patterns on its site suggested a 79% chance of a "No" vote.

The early payout only applies to Betfair's sportsbook operation where the firm sets the odds itself. It doesn't apply to its online exchange where customers bet against each other.

Thursday's vote has attracted high levels of interest from gamblers.

Betfair rival William Hill estimates the industry as a whole will take £10m ($16m) worth of bets on the vote, equivalent to the total taken on a high profile English Premier League football match.

Opinion polls suggest the vote in Scotland will be very close.

Three new polls, one by Opinium for the Daily Telegraph, another by ICM for the Scotsman and a third by Survation for the Daily Mail, were published on Tuesday evening.

With undecided voters excluded, they all suggested a lead for "No" of 52% to 48%.

The Dow's hitting record highs...
Wed 20:24
...and has been over an eye-watering 17,220 today.

Yellen's been speaking this afternoon and says The Fed are probably not going to raise interest rates until the summer of 2015 at the earliest.

They continue to believe rates should remain low for a "considerable time" after its bond buying program is complete -- which should happen following its next meeting.

I think I heard earlier that the results should be known by or around 7am, so we'll have a short while to digest before the open.
