TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
Neil Wilson, chief market analyst at Markets, said all eyes will be on the multilevel regression and post-stratification (MRP) poll from YouGov, which is due to be released at 2200 GMT.
“Given most traders will be in bed or the pub it could result in some whippy price action in GBP pairs. This detailed survey aims to offer a prediction for every seat (ex-Northern Ireland) and it correctly predicted the hung parliament in 2017,” he said.
“With the Tories apparently sitting pretty, this poll has the potential to change the narrative of the campaign if it shows a different outcome. Remember, a Tory majority tends to be near-term supportive of the pound as anything else is messy and uncertain.”
