GBP: More For GBP To Lose Than To Gain After General Elections – ING

ING FX Strategy Research argues that the narrative that GBP will rally on a landslide Tory win at the upcoming UK General Election may be a bit simplistic especially after the recent short positioning adjustment.

“Assuming the polls are right and the Tories win, it is what happens next – and Mrs. May’s initial post-election steps – that matters more for the pound. The emphasis is on the second stage; both a cabinet reshuffle (likely within a few days of the election result) and the UK’s stance on a Brexit transition deal will give GBP markets greater directional steer,” ING adds. 

The bottom line is that GBP risks from the General Election look asymmetrically skewed to the downside – there is now more to lose than gain,” ING concludes 

GBP/USD is trdaing circa 1.2940 as of writing.
