MOSCOW, September 11 (RIA Novosti) - The shares of the Royal Bank of Scotland fell following the YouGov poll, Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond told BBC and called for an investigation.
On Monday, some share prices went down after the YouGov poll showed a majority support for Scotland's independence, Salmond said. The price recovered on Tuesday, even though another poll confirmed the rising support for Scotland's separation from the UK.
The bank's shares traded at 346.10 pounds per share Thursday afternoon, up from Wednesday's close of 342.20 pounds per share and down from the three-months high of 366.40 pounds on August 27.
RBS share prices have been growing in the long term, despite the upcoming referendum on Scottish independence on September 18. The voters will be asked one question, "Should Scotland become an independent country?"
The uncertainty surrounding the upcoming referendum also played its part in weighing on the British pound, which dropped to a 10-month low against the dollar, falling below $1.61, on Wednesday.
UK Prime Minister David Cameron assured the Scottish public that within the structure of the UK, Scotland would be granted more autonomous power, while separating from England, Wales and Northern Ireland would be a "leap into the dark."
