Financial markets await news of coalition

UK financial markets are this weekend positioned on a knife edge awaiting news of a potential coalition between either the Conservative and Liberal Democrat parties or the Labour and Liberal Democrat parties. It is difficult to overstate how important a quick coalition has become to investors in the UK because ultimately more confusion and delay will not help the UK economy.

A number of analysts have this weekend stepped forward to warn UK investors to fear the worst if a coalition is not in place by Monday morning. Even though it is rumoured that the Conservative Party is currently in talks with the Liberal Democrats there are growing concerns about a lack of middle ground between the two. We also have the Labour Party hovering in the background with an open offer to the Liberal Democrats which would bring the two "losers" from the election together to potentially govern the UK.

Some in the media are suggesting we may have some form of civil unrest in the UK if the Conservative party is in some way blocked from governing the UK, whether as a coalition or as a minority government. There are many hurdles for the politicians to overcome to ensure a stable government, economic growth and a sense of satisfaction among voters.
