THE BASICS: If the UK votes to leave the EU there is a risk that this could lead to a global stock market crash. Ivana Kottasova of CNN believes a Brexit would cause a European Stock market crash that would lead to a US market crash because of the correlation between the markets. Matt Egan of CNN writes that a Brexit vote would cause a selloff in US equities but it would be relatively minor and recover quickly.
