    Global Stocks, Sterling Inch Up As Brexit Vote Looms, Yellen Cools Rate Talk

    (June 22 Reuters) Stocks and sterling rose while traditional safe-haven assets gold and bonds slipped on Wednesday, as investors were guardedly optimistic about a "Remain" vote in Britain's European Union referendum later this week.

    Riskier markets also drew support from Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's cautious comments on the U.S. economy the previous day, in which she virtually ruled out a July rate hike.

    Europe's FTSE Euro First index of 300 leading shares was up 0.1 percent, Germany's DAX was up 0.5 percent, France's CAC 40 was up 0.3 percent and Britain's FTSE 100 was up 0.1 percent.
