British election upset suppresses sterling
On Friday, the British pound sank steeply right after British Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservative Party suddenly fell short of an expected majority in the country’s general election.
The British pound sank 1.5%, being worth $1.2764, having tumbled to $1.2693, losing 2%, thus demonstrating the weakest outcome since April 18.
According to an updated BBC forecast, May's Conservatives would grasp 318 of the 650 seats, which is eight short of a majority. Meanwhile, Corbyn's left-wing Labour was expected to win 267 and it would result in a so-called "hung parliament" a pure deadlock.
Such a shocking outcome was supposed to bring domestic politics into turmoil and also affect the nature of Brexit negotiations.
However, reactions in other key currencies, including the common currency, greenback and yen, were quite moderate.
