U.S. stock index futures were indicating another positive start for major Wall Street indexes Tuesday as Brexit fears faded amid fresh polls that showed positive moves for the remain campaign.
Investors seem to have breathed a small sigh of relief as the most recent polls ahead of the June 23 referendum showed the remain camp moving ahead. The latest poll released by YouGov/The Times shows 42 percent likely to vote remain, 44 percent to leave, but 9 percent undecided. Meanwhile the ORB poll for The Telegraph newspaper showed a remain camp opening up a 7 point net lead at 53 percent versus 46 percent likely to vote to leave.
However, a Survation poll conducted for spread-betting firm IG showed Tuesday the leave camp gaining momentum again, at 44 percent versus the 42 percent published in a poll for the Mail over the weekend. Support for the remain camp held steady at 45 percent. The new Survation poll was conducted by telephone Monday, IG said in a Reuters report.
