Pound Falls From 6 Month High

The Pound declined from a six-month high after U.K. PM Theresa May was granted approval from lawmakers for an election on June 8.

The U.K currency traded 0.2% lower at 1.2821 versus the Dollar by 3:45 p.m. yesterday. Lawmakers backed May’s arrangement to hold an election three years earlier than scheduled. The result triggers what will be an intense seven-week campaign in which the U.K.’s planned departure from the European Union will be the focus.

The Pound recovered slightly this morning to 1.2834. Sterling fell against the Euro to 1.1909.
