- The British pound responds Monday 'solid' after the London attack in the direction of the June 8 elections in the UK.
That's what currency trader Jeremy Cook of World First in London notes. The pound rose to € 0.8738 against the euro on the second day of Pentecost. In the Asian trade, the pound went backwards.
Towards the elections, the currency will be even more moving towards the dollar and the euro, according to Cook.
The elections continue despite the attack. Conservatives receive 42% of all votes, according to the poll of Yougov, against Labor 38%. The party of the British party May says, according to another poll, from IMC, 45% of Wednesday's seats to be distributed, against 34% for Labor.
