Still, the market is only pricing around a 30 percent probability of an October 31 Brexit, which may be due to the potential for a temporary extension of the deadline to conclude negotiations. We don’t know.

Nevertheless, if you’re confident BoJo can come to an agreement with the EU  and Parliament will pass it, place your bets at PredictIt.

As of the recent price of 31 cents, the two-week return is 225.8 percent if Brexit gets done.  It’s a binary trade if you hold it to maturity (Oct 31) and the loss is 100% if Brexit fails.

If you’re looking to do sizeola, as in >$50k, forget about it.  These are lunch money bets, folks.

Stay tuned.
