My forecast is for sterling strength today. If you are looking to buy foreign currency I think today could be a good day to secure a rate. If on the other hand you are selling currency, you may want to have a good think about your budget as if we do get a strong coalition in the UK you could see some further GBP Strength.
It is worth noting that if we do see any negative fallout from the talks between the major parties, then you could see some sterling weakness. If none of the parties can come to an agreement the uncertainty that would cause would probably lead to the pound losing value. At present we are seeing GBP strength because it looks like an agreement will be reached.

As of 10:07 am BST sterling exchange rates have been strengthening against the Euro by 0.83%, ZAR 1.14% AUD 0.55%. The gains have not been against all currencies with losses currently against the USD and YEN at present.
The uncertainty regarding the UK government could start to weigh on the pound if we do not have a decision in the very near future about who will be running government. While the rates of exchange for sterling has strengthened quite considerably against a host of currencies of late, it may be wise to look at securing a rate of exchange to take away the risk factor if you have an up and coming transfer to be done.
