The market has opened flat ahead of crucial Brexit vote. The Sensex is down 0.55 points at 26812.23, and the Nifty is down 2.05 points at 8217.85. About 486 shares have advanced, 203 shares declined, and 36 shares are unchanged.

The Indian rupee declined in the early trade on Wednesday. It has opened lower by 10 paise at 67.59 per dollar against previous close of 67.49.
The dollar edged after news that a new poll on Britain's referendum on european union membership showed growing support for the leave camp, pushing down the euro and sterling. Meanwhile the euro dropped the most in a week after European Central Bank President Mario Draghi reiterated his willingness to act to bolster inflation.
