Huge chance for gold

31 May, 2017

The Elections in the UK next week could be shaping up as a real boom for the Gold price as the gap narrows between Prime minister Theresa May and opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn May's lead in the polls which was over 20 points just a week ago has dropped to just 5 points and many and now calling into question the similarities when US President Donald Trump was elected which was all but impossible to think until the election results came in. The mere thought that Jeremy Corbyn could pull off the impossible and become Prime Minister is likely to see Gold go through the roof as investors rush for safe haven assets to fend off the financial storm that it will cause. Even if the British Prime Minister does hold on to Her Job it may not be enough to subdue the gold price as the Market had been expecting her to win by a landslide and a smaller margin will weaken her hand in Brexit negotiations, "Ideally to see a rally in the stock markets the UK would want to see Theresa May win by an overwhelming majority which seems to be less likely to happen taking into account the latest polls," Natixis precious metals analyst Bernard Dahdah said. "If May wins with her current lead it will be slightly negative for her negotiation hand (n Brexit talks and positive for gold." He added Also causing a stir in the Markets was former Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi who suggested on Sunday that the country's next election could be held in tandem with elections in Germany which would bring the date forward by almost a year and throw more uncertainty into the Eurozone.
