When is the General Election?

The election takes place on Thursday, June 8th. Polls close at 22:00 and we expect a snap exit poll shortly after. At the last election in 2015 this unexpectedly and correctly called the result as a slim Conservative majority.

Who is likely to win the election?

The Conservatives have enjoyed a strong lead in the opinion polls but Labour closed the gap following the release of the parties’ respective manifestos. A strong Conservative majority may offer some calm to markets but a narrow margin of victory could roil them as it might put prime minister Theresa May under intense scrutiny and pressure from within her own party. A Labour victory would be unexpected and likely to produce significant volatility in markets.

Which markets are affected?

The big focus around the election is on the pound. Sterling jumped when Theresa May called for the snap election in April and has since broken through the psychologically important level of $1.30 for the first time in months. The FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 will also be impacted as the result is likely to produce an effect on general market sentiment. The FTSE 100 may also be directly affected by any significant change for sterling.

How might my trading be affected?

There is likely to be heightened market volatility over the election period. Increased volatility means increased opportunity but also increased risk, which may require wider spreads and higher margin requirements for short periods of time. Always check your margin cover and monitor open positions.

What happens after the election?

Once the new government is formed the focus shifts to Brexit and the formal start of negotiations on Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union on June 19th. That’s the day pencilled in by EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier to officially start the 15-month process.
