The UK’s 2024 General Election: Potential Impacts on Currency Markets

As the UK approaches its 2024 General Election on July 4th, many are keenly observing the potential implications this political event might have on the currency markets. Periods surrounding such a significant political event can bring about notable volatility in the financial markets.

The 2016 Brexit referendum serves as a prime example of how political events can drastically impact currency markets. Sterling experienced significant volatility before the referendum, with sharp declines against other global currencies following the result. This period highlighted the sensitivity of the currency markets to political uncertainty and significant policy shifts.

Factors that can influence currency movements during an election period


  • Polling data and campaign developments
  • Market sentiment and speculation
  • Economic policy proposals
  • Global market reactions
