Pound soars after Conservatives win UK polls

The pound alongside the stock market surged after the Conservatives won a clear majority in the UK general election. Sterling gained 1.9% to $1.34, its highest level since May last year. This comes as the verdict signals clearing up uncertainty over Brexit. The pound also jumped to a three-and-a-half-year high against the euro.

*Fistpump* I hope this result is true so that Johnson can get Brexit done and help the country adjust to its newfound freedom from the EU.

Absolutely. Lately it's been no more than a 10 seat swing after this point. I'm pretty sure we have a majority. It's going to be a good Christmas. Cheerio corbyn.

I wonder how the currency speculators will manipulate the market now? They are the ones that have been profiting so far.
