The British pound hit its lowest level since 1985 against the dollar, near $1.32, before trading about 8 percent lower, close to $1.3695. The currency also posted its largest move to the downside ever.
Shaun Osborne, chief currency strategist at ScotiaBank, echoed Lien's comment.
"It may be wrong to underestimate just how far we can go. In the short run, probably $1.30 is reachable; below $1.30 as a psychological support point. There's not that much in terms of identifiable support levels," he said on "Squawk Box."

The question is obviously for the rest of the European Union, but the U.K. will deal with the EU just as we do, just as Norway does, just as Switzerland does."
