Background: Trading on the MONEY MARKET was slow and sluggish this morning due to the uncertainty of the outcome of the election. In the first two hours the Pound dropped 2 cents against the american dollar to 2.28 $ American. This drop is partly due to the success of Labour because of concern of European bankers over the future of the Common Mark t...Lab. of course wants to renegotiate Britain's entry.
It should be pointed out that the drop in the pound is partly due to a general strengthening of the American dollar against all European currencies and the continuing aftereffects of Britain's trade deficit.
